Insights and tips on how to protect your inn or bed & breakfast, giving you and your guests peace of mind.
With decades of experience helping owners insure their most prized assets, we have seen it all and spoken to many amazing people. We have noticed they focus their efforts on these 5 perspectives/habits. Follow these 5 insider tips to help run a successful Inn business.
Many inn businesses employ at least one individual who is essential to the company’s success. This person may be a partner, owner or another individual who is crucial to the inn. If this person unexpectedly leaves the organization—due to a death, disability or immediate resignation—it may be hard for the bed and breakfast to survive.
Offering employee benefits can be extremely beneficial to your inn business. Though they may sound complicated or even expensive, they have the ability to improve several areas within your business such as hiring and retaining employees. The process of selecting, implementing and administering a benefits program can take time, however, once you get it right, it can actually help you in more ways than one.
We have all heard about them, we may even know a few, but handling demanding guests can be a difficult and overwhelming task. When customer reviews have a direct impact on your inn’s business, it can be difficult to establish boundaries with them. You never want an unsatisfied customer, but at what point do you draw the line?
No matter what safety precautions you have in place or how well you maintain your inn, a guest or an employee could become injured or claim that your negligence caused damage to their property at any time. If you are named as the responsible party in such a suit, you need to defend yourself against the charges.

Selecting the right business structure for your Bed & Breakfast is important. As a small business, you may be trying to determine the right business framework for you — likely either a sole proprietorship or limited liability company (LLC). For many owners, minimizing risk is top of mind, and an LLC is a way to gain added protection in addition to innkeepers insurance.
Bed & Breakfasts are known for being a wonderful venue for all types of events. Though hosting can be a source of extra income and fun for everyone, it does come with unique risks. Accidents can happen at any time, especially if alcohol and food are thrown into the mix.
