Beginner Innkeeping Seminars:

Is Innkeeping a dream or a reality for me?

Innkeeping is not for everyone. We know that. Hearthside Group provides aspiring innkeeping seminars covering such topics as innkeeping lifestyle, operations, marketing and financing sprinkled with real life examples from their own innkeeping experiences. The seminars are intensive, informative and fun. By the end of the seminar, you will have a very good idea what innkeeping is about and whether this exciting lifestyle is for you. Whatever your decision, it is a great investment for you.

TAKEAWAYS: By the end of this seminar you will have accomplished the following:

  • Is innkeeping a career you would like to pursue? If not, that is okay. That is a win for you.
  • You will receive a primer on all aspects of purchasing an inn from preliminary.
    modeling, to prospecting, financing, negotiating, valuations, marketing, operations
    and lifestyle /relationship challenges of innkeeping.
  • For those interested in continuing down this path, we will help you to construct an
    innkeeping business model that works for you. Based upon your personal skill sets,
    financial, lifestyle and geographic priorities, you will walk away with a model that will
    save you time and money while you look for the inn that is right for you.
