Michael and Wendy have been working diligently to prepare the Bed and Breakfast for guests. New chandaliers have been installed, aesthetic design upgrades have been made and period-style furniture has been added. Even the large sign off Elm Street proudly displays the new logo as well as the address. The sign company delivered and hung the new sign (with Mike's help) just one hour before guests arrived for the Open House event. Whew, that was cutting it close! Unfortunately, the custom doormats I ordered arrived the day after the event. It was unfortunate from a marketing standpoint, but clearly, no one missed them.
The Guilford B&B hosted an Open House this past Friday and although the number of attendees didn't quite reach what we had hoped for, those who did attend were spectacular! A special thanks goes out to those who did show as we thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet the locals, some of whom had never set foot inside the Victorian mansion before, and one mentioned it had been nearly thirty years since they'd visited. The good thing for the attendees, aside from the delicious anise-seed pizzelles of course, was the fact that fewer people certainly increased their odds of winning the door prizes.
Congratulations to Stephanie Hewitte and Dave Hartman for each winning a free ticket to attend a SleuthHOUND Murder Mystery event hosted at the Guilford Bed and Breakfast. In addition, Nena Schultz won a free, one-night stay for two adults in the lovely Cummings Suite (dinner and breakfast included).
