Our Hotel Rooms - The Furniture

The main reason of the furniture we place in a hotel room, is to be making your stay comfortable, give it a homey feeling and a minimal challenge to be dealing with, creating flawless little spaces for each task.

It is rather a simplistic way of saying "thank you, we designed the space for you to easily
navigate around, and we hope there is nothing in your way"

During the years, I leaned that people will change the furniture around in the room and, no matter what we do, everyone has an idea they like you to listen to and eventually expect you to change the furniture according to their suggestions. It's not going to match everyone's taste.

The hotel owners, proprietor or whatever you feel like calling us, have a greater responsibility that many can think of! In everything we do, at least 99% of the time, we will have you in mind: when we furnish a room, when designing that, when we decorate, with every move and purchase we are taking in consideration how functional that is, how that particular product services the purpose of making your stay comfortable, how easy is to have appliances placed in a particular spot in a room...

We are people with knowledge, - or all of us should be, knowledge of interior design, - color coordination, educated ourselves and have the information on how our facility should have a lasting impression on your visit and,  we hope you to build great memories of your stay and to remember our place for a long time.

So, as much as we love to listen to your suggestions, they are not always to the most's benefits and furniture is set in the room with a purpose, of design and comfort in mind!

On Your Side - Part II


Verify and clarify. Call to verify your reservations and arrangements. Get the details  
behind vague promises that you’ll be staying at a “five star” resort or sailing on a  
luxury” cruise ship. When you have the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the airlines, car rental companies, and hotels you’ll be using, confirm all arrangements for yourself.  
See our Inn's policy

Put it on paper. Get the details of your vacation in writing. Get a copy of the company’s cancellation and refund policies, and ask “What if...?” Consider whether some form of travel cancellation insurance may be appropriate.

Use a credit card to make your purchase. If you don’t get what you paid for, you may be able to dispute the charges with your credit card company. However, don’t give your account number to any business until you’ve verified that it is reputable.

Avoid a travel club flub. Ask questions before joining a travel club. Sometimes, a “free trial” membership can result in unauthorized charges on your credit card. Find out what you’ll get for your money and how you can cancel.

Won a “free” vacation? Not so fast. Scam artists may tell you you’ve won a “free” vacation, but then claim to need your credit card number for “verification.” Tell them to take a hike. If the promotion is legit, you never need to pay for a prize.

The Interior Design - starting phase

There is always only so much a proprietor can do; this life, a hotel owner life is full of surprises, interruption,  multitasking,  start more projects at once, take reservations, make phone calls...

One of the so called "Small Project" for the past winter was to work on the Interior Design; changing a few things and bringing some colors to the room was partially though about for different reasons.

The old had to go to make room for the new; we started with the beds' covers

We already concluded that the reading chairs were a too light color and the wear was already showing too much.

With the help of a skilled good friend, I was able to obtain a much better looking reading chairs that will not show as much or easy the stains ans still be comfortable and fitting in.

This of course is taking time and yet we made the room like having new furniture and being a new place all together.

It is a matter of days now to bring  this project to an end. We will follow with a different post when that is accomplished.

The TV challenge continues

It is the first time we purchased TVs for the hotel (and I hope the last) as a commercial grade, and now we are finally  - yeah, finally after 5 days getting the piece of info we should've had from the beginning;

When boxes arrived, it looked like they were original sealed and we were expecting to just plug them in, hook them with the HD DirecTV receiver and the set up would be a piece of cake as well;  not so fast!

In other words, we tried to set up programing and all that but we didn't have the "green remote" as they call it, all boxes came with "guest remote" that will not serve us with what we needed to get all this started....and finished

Just wasted 5 days trying to figure out what's wrong and no one told us before what we really need;  WOW - someone decided to overnight the "green remote" to  the business.

We really had to finish this project "by yesterday!" because the drapes project still will have to be finished.

Why the TV took priority? They all sit in a room know that I will be needing this weekend, otherwise I will have to move someone from a room to the other for her 2 night stay and that is not FUN!

So, tomorrow we are on a marathon to finish up installing all TV in all rooms and setting the programing up!

Letting the Old go Making room for the New

We are coloring our rooms, somehow.

The new bed covers are here and they look cheerful. A little color - or, i should say, rather a plain color on the bed makes the room look so much better, even roomier.

It was a fun experience to be changing the Old with something New, better and improved. 

It was a great feeling to be able to donate to a charity all the old stuff and at least make it of use for some people in need.

After all, hotels don't create travel; they serve it

The hotel industry is facing severe business challenges; how we react to those will determine how quickly we can return to some balance and profit growth.

As I learned more about the industry, I wrote this article and I hope you find it helpful!

The Cornfield!

I heard often people saying they come here for the cornfield view! That's nice!

Some people ask for the rooms with a cornfield view! I thinks when you live in a hectic city, you might want to have a relative relaxing view; all green, peaceful - the cornfield!

So far, after a late start here with the neighbors in the back of the property starting planting late, I got to the point not to be able to see the cars on the road, I am talking about the WI scenic Byway State Hwy 60.

The cornfield is a real refreshment for the eyesight and completes the surrounding area scenery.
