There was a great article on NPR this morning about the updates in B&Bs in the USA. Listen and learn more from some innkeepers in Vermont.
We at Pheasant Field B&B have been making similar changes here at our 200 year old house. We continually try to make small upgrades to our rooms and common areas.
Most recently we added a refrigerator to "Gen. Miller's Retreat" and plan to give the same treatment to "Lady Amherst's Library" after the holidays.
We have had a Flavia (similar to the Kurig) coffee maker available to guests since 2004 which we plan to move into a more accessible common area.
We have already made some decorating changes such as reducing unneeded/little used furniture from some rooms. These changes made the rooms seem larger and more comfortable.
These changes may seem small, but they make a considerable difference in how welcome and comfortable our guests feel when they visit Pheasant Field B&B.
Watch for some more upgrades in 2013.
Merry Christmas! We hope to see you in the New Year!
