Aspiring Innkeeper Workshop Schedule, Maine 2020

Introducing our 2020 Schedule for Maine Aspiring Innkeepers

Buying or selling an inn can be a relatively long process. We don't just take part in a quick transaction, we establish relationships. The sale is not our goal. Your success is our goal. And our relationship doesn't end at the closing table.

We are fully immersed in the hospitality industry and focus on selling Maine Inns, Bed & Breakfasts and commercial real estate with a hospitality component, including restaurants and event venues. We have been in your shoes, whether as buyer or seller.

We offer years of cultivated contacts and resources for every aspect of your business, from acquisition to operations to preparing your inn for sale and beyond. Maine hospitality lenders, attorneys, tax accountants, hospitality association leaders, reservation systems, vendors, you name it. We cover it. Take a look at our workshop agenda for details on what we'll cover and at the workshop schedule for dates and details.



The Maine Inn Team looks forward to meeting you!

New Innkeeper Workshops for Maine Aspiring and Current Innkeepers

The Maine Inn Team is pleased to launch our Innkeeper Workshops with two offerings to choose from: Two Day Weekend Workshop for Prospective Innkeepers; or One Day In-Depth Workshop for Future Sellers.

As former innkeepers, one of the most often asked questions from guests is: "I have always considered owning a bed and breakfast. How did you get started?" This two-day workshop works through exactly that. How to get started, what to consider, financing, operations, and more. The Maine Inn Team, Dana and Tori,will walk you through major topics to consider: Marketing, Financials of Buying an Inn, General Operations, Food and Beverage, Making Your Inn Work for You.

These two-day weekend workshops will take place at various Inn locations throughout the state of Maine, providing you the opportunity to experience an Inn here in Maine and see what our hospitality is all about. The workshops will also feature guest presenters from the industry, such as tax attorneys, lenders, Reservations System representatives, Seasoned and New Innkeepers, and others.

These workshops are a unique opportunity to hear the nuts and bolts of innkeeping but also to talk to current innkeepers and others considering innkeeping. Talk with industry professionals who can help you with your business. Learn what this business is all about and how to be successful.

Whether you are thinking of selling this year, in three years, or in five years, it is never too early to plan your Exit Strategy. There are accounting and tax implications, as well as room rate and occupancy strategies, to running your business today that will be important at the time of selling. That is where Dana and Tori come in, providing the One Day In-Depth Workshop for Future Sellers. Our wealth of knowledge, and industry contacts can help you understand the selling process: how long might you expect to be on the market? How is the selling price determined? Preparing a clear P&L now so the books are ready for review when you sell; Preparing for showings, and more.

The buying, and selling, of an inn can seem like a challenging process. Tell us how we can help you.
