Innkeepers are always on duty 24/7. So what does an innkeeper do when they need to get away for a vacation, a special occasion, or an emergency? Who do they get to replace themselves for a few days, weeks or maybe even a few months?
Many innkeepers are unaware that there is a group of men & women who are of professional Interim Innkeepers or Innsitters. These professionals are individuals or couples who have either owned their own bed and breakfast at one time, or have taken training in how to act as replacement innkeepers. An Interim Innkeeper comes in and after a day of training on the particulars of your bed and breakfast, steps in and takes the place of the innkeeper.
The reason to hire a professional innkeeper instead of just closing the bed and breakfasts doors are numerous. First and foremost is that someone will be there at the inn to answer the phone and not only take reservations for the time that they are staying at the inn, but also book rooms for future reservations. In addition, having a professional innkeeper at your inn while you are gone, allows you to continue to have guests and generate income. Finally, the interim innkeeper can take care of any animals you may have and provide security for your bed and breakfast.
Interim Innkeepers may be found throughout the United States. Many will even travel to international areas.
