I remember Dad saying we shouldn't ever run a Bed and Breakfast inn or hotel because we'd always be changing sheets and cleaning toilets. But Mom did that anyway. And she didn't get paid.
The experience has been good so far - insurance, zoning and tax implications aside. I've met interesting people and my guest unit and house are cleaner than they've ever been.
Undoubtedly the most frustrating aspect of this little edge of hoteliery is not sheets and toilet cleaning or even insurance, zoning and taxes. It is hair. It is the capture and containment of this ubiquitous human waste. Hair - so lovely and esteemed when attached, immediately morphs into reviled waste product once separated from its host.
Two words: lint roller.
