"If I build it they will come"
Many folks open a B&B with that dream and are sorely disappointed. To succeed, you need to plan to meet the needs of the market - the best time is before you are financially committed. BBIM's Aspiring Innkeeper Information Package helps you with the business & regulatory ramifications, and it will give you the contact information to find your way around the agencies that can help or hinder you.

The cost?

Only $49 on CD-ROM for non-BBIM members (but we include a $10 discount for your future BBIM membership).

Only $29 on CD-ROM for current BBIM members (or those who become BBIM Associate Members with this order - BBIM Associate membership is $50 so your total would be $79 for CD-ROM version)
