fter years of city-living, putting up with endless hustle and bustle and noise,
many city folk yearn for a simpler, quieter way of life. They dream of waking
up to the sound of chirping birds, the rustle of leaves in the wind outside
their window, the smell of breakfast cooking in the kitchen, the sounds of the
waves crashing on the shore... and so... they escape to the countryside or seaside,
to the nearest inn.

If you live in or own a house in the peaceful countryside or beach and you
have lots of extra rooms, you could open your house to guests, to spend their
weekends or holidays or for the older folk who want an extended stay after they
retire. You'll need to be someone who's hospitable, who loves having guests
in your home and who enjoys playing "tourist guide" to your guests.
Your inn may see busy times during the holidays so you will definitely need
extra help with cleaning the rooms, changing and washing the linen, and the
cooking. Your guests will look forward to home-cooking so you'll need a fairly
large kitchen and store to accomodate the extra mouths you'll be feeding.
While your guests may be sharing the same house with you, you will always keep
in mind that you are running a business and act accordingly - your guests will
still value their privacy and expect to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Happy guests will always be your best advertisement becuase they will be talking
to their friends about you and your inn.
