Getting Ready to open our Bed and Breakfast

Since buying this old octagon house in 2000, it's been a dream  to open a B and B.  We started in earnest 2 years ago with redoing the upstairs rooms, adding a new a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub.

We converted the upstairs hall room to an extra dining room or game room for guest use, including a small frig and microwave.
 But our plans were delayed by well problems.  We dug a new well that didn't have enough output, so now we are solving that problem with the addition of a storage tank in the basement.   The final touches are getting done by the electrician and plumber this month.  We plan to open in January, 2012 with two guestrooms and a 3 course breakfast.  I'm very excited to start welcoming guests to our 1884 octagon house!
