The weekend seminar is our premier and most in-depth future innkeeper program and allows for more face time and interaction with your instructors. The weekend seminar package includes group instruction, workbooks, personalized follow-up consultation, meals, and breaks. There is an optional wine and cheese reception on Friday evening; Dinner Saturday night will be an upscale yet relaxed affair, and you are the guests of Inn Partners / The B&B Team® for both these events, plus your lunch on Saturday. The cost of your lodging during the seminar is additional, and we have negotiated a preferred rate for our seminar attendees.
In addition to the seminar on starting a bed and breakfast itself, as a graduate, you will be eligible for a personal, half-day planning session with one of us at our office or over the phone/video conference.
Attendees for the weekend seminars should plan on checking in as close to 4:30 PM if they plan to join us for the informal wine and cheese reception. Please plan on departing after 12:30 PM on Sunday.
