Looking for the perfect Christmas gift?

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Are you looking for the perfect Christmas gift for your adult children and/or your adult grandchildren? Buy them the gift that pays for itself and never quits giving.  Make the down payment on the purchase of our fine inn and put them into a profitable business which will pay for itself and keep them from being unemployed.  Form a partnership w/ family or friends.   Many people will spend much more on their loved ones for Christmas and give them something which provides little or no return and is soon worn out and unused. The gift of a successful inn will provide many happy times over the years and your loved ones will be ever grateful.  Down payment idea:  convert your IRA to a self-directed IRA.  Form a partnership w/ family or friends.  Come  pay us a visit and ask Myrna to tell you all about our inn, its success over the past 18 years, the ROI, the wonderful guests we meet and host from all over the world, 38 countries to be exact and how the guests continue to return time after time. Rent the remaining rooms for Christmas week, have your Christmas around our tree and make the presentation a surprise to the recipient(s).  Or possibly an early Christmas over Thanksgiving weekend.

We have two optional properties which could provide homes for two or more families who could share the duties of operating a profitable inn as well as the innkeeper quarters in the main house.  One of these is the Carriage House which is shown on our website (includes a 2 bedroom loft apartment upstairs, not shown on website) and the other is a Mission Style home across the street from the main inn.


So, You Want To Be An Innkeeper?

Would you like to be innkeepers like us?

Would you like to be innkeepers like us?

We know that many of you have considered running your own bed and breakfast. It is indeed a great profession. We have truly enjoyed our fifteen years as innkeepers here at our 1892 Queen Anne Victorian mansion in Taylorville. What could be better if you enjoy cooking and like hosting people in your home? Yet we also understand that it is a big step, and a huge commitment to make if you’ve never done it.

With that in mind, we are offering a “SO YOU WANT TO BE AN INNKEEPER” special. Try out the dream for a couple of days. We won’t hand you the keys to our Taylorville Illinois inn or ask you to wash dishes, but we will sit down with you after breakfast and talk about the ins and outs of innkeeping. Stay 2 nights, and the second night will be half price.

We are approaching retirement age, and would love to pass off our beloved Central Illinois Bed and Breakfast to someone who has always wanted to run one. Our inn has had enviable growth over the past 15 years – it is a strong business and a great opportunity for a future innkeeper.

Please call to book this, and make an appointment with Joe and Myrna. The offer is good through November 30, 2009.
