Considering a bed and breakfast? Learn tips from other bed and breakfast owners in Missouri through this booklet. It is written in a question/answer format, with different B&B owners giving their opinions on matters such as: Is my home suitable? and "Will my family like it?"

Interesting advice and observations come forward. Several hints about operating a bed and breakfast can be found, such as types of B&Bs that meet special visitor needs. The business aspects of ordinances, permits and marketing are included in the discussions as well.

Beautiful detailed sketches of Missouri bed and breakfasts give a feel for the existing options open to Missouri travelers. Several sources for additional information are also included. All can be used to form plans for beginning a bed and breakfast.
