Hello to all. I am not a host as yet but I am considering it. I am looking for some advice before I get too far into this.
I live in a semi-rural part of Connecticut. I have a spare room about 14 x 14’ that offers a full private bathroom right next door. Ground floor access. Zoned heat they can control. Can offer kitchen access plus access to the den/tv area. There is even a regulation size pool table they are free to use. Plenty of on-site parking.
Now, the hitch. Where the bedroom is located is at the end of a short hallway on the same side of the building as my home office (separate room just before with a door) and a “photographic-type” workshop area that you need to pass through when you come through the french doors that lead to the bedroom.
I have had some friends say this is a deal breaker. That they’d never stay because “who wants to see this when they wake up”. I disagree. They are not sleeping in the workshop. The place is clean and neat and actually, is quite interesting in what goes on there. I have customers come in and they are amazed at what they find.
Comments and questions, please.
