The Aspiring Innkeeper Program at Aldrich Guest House isn't going to tell you what to do. We won't be telling you how to run your business, what to make for breakfast, how to decorate your property, or how to interact with guests. We're also not trying to sell you property or make it sound like running a B&B is rocket science like lots of the currently available seminars do.
What we will do is teach you the tools you need to create your unique experience for your guests and let you experience first-hand what it's really like to be an innkeeper. Our goal is to help you find the best way to run your property in your own way that works for you. We will bring out the best in you so that you can give the best to your guests.
By giving a peek behind the scenes, our aspiring innkeepers will leave with an understanding of what it means to run a bed and breakfast or small lodging property. You will have experienced hands-on the excitement of welcoming guests and figuring out how best to take care of each of them. You'll learn how back of house operations are run including breakfast planning/prep/serving, housekeeping, marketing, advertising, and reservation/property management among other things.
And one of the greatest aspects of the Aspiring Innkeeper Program at Aldrich Guest House is that we let you choose what you have questions about. Check out the list of consulting session options below where you can choose from some of the most commonly asked topics. Don't see something you'd like to learn about? Just let us know and we'll create a session just for you.
Our over-arching goal is that you leave with a well-established plan that is personalized to you, your goals, and your definition of success. Afterall, the biggest item that impacts your guest's experience is you - we'll help you and your passion for hospitality shine through in all of the unique ways that make you and your upcoming property special!
