A City Boy Making His Way in the Country

Friendly competition.

I love competition.  And I love it even more when it’s friendly.  Well, at least when the other competitor thinks it’s friendly.  ‘Cause, gurl, you can be sure I’m taking my hoops out and putting my curly bangs up in a pony tail.  This innkeeper is coming out swinging.

The bed and breakfast industry is cut throat.  Hmmm, to be honest, I can’t speak exactly to that as I haven’t really opened up a bed and breakfast.  But there are a lot of them.  And some of them do the same things you do.  They have beds!  They serve breakfast!  They use the Internet.  It’s all the same and yet, it’s all so different.

Hear ye, hear ye, I have an announcement.  We are going to distance ourselves from the friendly competitors.  We are genius.  We have an idea that will rock the bed and breakfast world.  I dare not mention my innovation here on the Internet.  There are spies about.  Yes, I’m paranoid.  Not really.  We, at Orchard House, are going to offer “experience” weekends.  These include, but are not limited to, horseback riding, winery, and antiquing tours.  Delicious.  And worth the destination visit.  Need to pick some eggs, come and grab a wire basket.

And so we meet the friendly competition head on.  And one up them.  There, take that.  And I dare you to do me one better!  Because I love the competition.  Where would regular butter be with the threat of apple butter.  Chocolate sauce is constantly watching it’s back, where is that darn caramel?  And don’t get me started on the frenemy behavior of challah and brioche!  It’s a tough world.  But we’re gonna make it, after all!
