That’s right, I have new goals.
I want to open a Bed & Breakfast.
I was inspired after watching last week’s season finale of Tabitha Takes Over. You see, Tabitha took over this B &B that was run by a former entertainment journalist, who still thought she was the shit. However, her career had gone to shit, instead. She needed the B & B to pay her bills and things just weren’t working in her favor.
OH, because she wasn’t serving breakfast? Yeah, Tabitha was asking the same thing you are—why not just call it “Bed”?
And so, Tabitha whipped the bitch into shape and gave the place a stunning makeover. Now, the lady charges $185 per room, per night. She’s got four rooms. That’s $740 a night, folks. And yes, I understand, minus the cost of labor, food, and washing linens, etc…but still.
The show really got me thinking, why don’t I run a B & B? It is a business that rolls EVERYTHING I love into one—I could meet people, hear their stories (write them down and sell them and not tell anyone), entertain guests, cook, write all day, and live in a bomb ass house.
Um, where do I sign the line?
I know the cliche of a B & B, they’re kind of cottage-y or just dumpy. I don’t want mine to be like that. I’m thinking more modern, maybe like…
With a nice library, where my guests can read or work at their leisure:
Of course, comfy and stylish bedroom suites:
Upon check-in, my guests would be taken to their rooms, where a plate of fresh-baked goodies will be waiting for them, along with a copy of my best-selling book. Dinner will be served only on Sunday evenings, for no extra charge.
Cities where the B & B could go:
- Bar Harbor, Maine
- The Hamptons
- Charleston, South Carolina
- San Diego, California
- San Francisco, California
- Dallas, Texas
- Grand Rapids, Michigan
- Telluride, Colorado
Any other ideas? Send them my way. Ditto if you wanna do business together.
Seriously, is this not an awesome idea? Sure, it came from watching trashy television, and then it was validated with me thinking “Now I’ll never be alone, I’ll always have guests!” but it’s still a great idea…right?
