Thank you for considering my services to accommodate guests in your absence. No doubt you have earned time away. You need peace of mind that an experienced Innsitter will keep your hopes and dreams flowing in your absence.

In my Innsitting and Innkeeper years I have worked B&B’s from Alaska to New York City. From the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to southern Georgia. All services are individually contracted and mutually agreed upon before your departure.

If I have not worked at your Inn, I would come a day or so earlier at my expense. This will give us time to get to know each other and I would know your routine. Giving you peace of mind to enjoy your time away.

Looking forward to my time at your INN.

Biographical Info

I have an extensive and varied background in the hospitality and service industries for over 30 years. From 2018 to present I have been an interim innkeeper working throughout the country. I have managed inns in high traffic vacation areas such as Cape Cod, MA, Palm Springs, CA, Lake Placid, NY, and Buena Vista, CO. I started my inn career doing spa treatments at a resort inn in Maryland. It was a beautiful Select Registry bed and breakfast on the Chesapeake Bay and a desired destination wedding venue. Previous to innkeeping I owned a spa and hair business. The Maryland inn wanted to add spa treatments to their offerings and reached out to me. They quickly became in need of management help and I stepped into the position. This is where the love of BnB hospitality began for me. I moved into a permanent assistant manager position, then acting manager. When my four children grew to adulthood I took the opportunity to travel as an Interim Innsitter. My original Maryland inn is a place I return to often.

Prior to the BnB world, and sometimes concurrently to running a spa business, I held various positions in event catering including manager, sales, cook, and server. Prior to those positions I worked as a cook in a restaurant that served breakfast and lunch. My varied background gives me a well rounded skill set that helps me to be successful as an interim innkeeper. I thrive in the BnB environment and provide exceptional service treating guests with dignity and kindness. You can feel confident during your absence that your BnB will be in caring, dependable, and capable hands.

Hospitality Experience

Assistant Innkeeper and Acting Manager of a 13 room select registry destination bed and breakfast and wedding venue.  Duties included management of the property and staff, wedding sales and event management, reservations, fielding of phone calls and emails, check in’s and check out’s, breakfast preparation and service, staff management, scheduling, maintaining online social media responses and inn tour requests, online review responses, daily & financial reports, laundry and light housekeeping.

  • Prepped, cooked, and set up unique buffet breakfasts for large groups of up to 40 people, as well as smaller intimate breakfasts. I enjoy being creative with recipes and presentations. I am comfortable with using house recipes or bringing my own favorites.
  • I pride myself on working well with a team of coworkers as well as being confident as a strong manager.
  • Thrive on treating each guest with a high level of personal care delivered with professionalism.
  • Excel in working with small groups for family reunions, retreats, corporate meetings, elopements, small weddings, and rehearsal dinners.
  • Organized Chamber of Commerce meetings and holiday parties in a BnB setting.
  • Have developed relationships with local businesses to direct guests to restaurants, wineries, art galleries, festivals and events.
  • Sold wedding packages to be held at the BnB in which I managed. Worked with wedding parties and vendors from the planning stages to the day of the event.
  • Worked as a manager on duty for weddings, corporate events, family reunions and other large gatherings.

 

Cooking and Catering Experience

  • Managed catered parties up to 60 ppl in a BnB setting as well as other private venues. Common duties included: managing staff, vendor relations, developing menus and food purchasing, day ahead prep cooking to day of event cooking, organization of rentals, room setup, clean up, and break down.
  • Prepared, cooked and managed luncheons for corporate groups and family reunions.
  • Menu planned, shopped, cooked and executed small intimate weddings of up to 25 people.
  • Cooked for a breakfast and lunch coffee shop.
  • Cooked on the line for a 60 person capacity restaurant in a BnB setting.

Other certifications

  • I hold licenses, certifications and advanced training in cosmetology, reiki, holistic mineral body wraps, facials, and reflexology, as well as coursework in marketing and management.
  • I owned and operated a holistic day spa and hair business beginning from 2006 to 2020.

As a former owner of a successful café for over 18 years at the “Jersey Shore,” I enjoyed baking and creating wholesome meals from scratch, including special dietary needs, for all my loyal customers. I’ve learned every facet of what it takes to run and maintain a business.

I have good knowledge and practice of:
– Creative healthy breakfasts from 1 – 20 people
– Running and maintaining day-to-day operations
– Managing staff
– Remaining calm with difficult situations
– Developing an eye for detail
– Excellent customer service

As an Innkeeper since 2011, I cared for several Inns including historic ones which have given me an appreciation of their grandeur, tenderness and sometimes even quirkiness. I understand the business including the ups, downs and the unexpected which has helped to keep my Inns running efficiently and profitably for the owners and enjoyable for the guests who pass through my doors. Guests have always been my number one priority.

I am savvy with social media; reservation systems and I truly enjoy being a knowledgeable concierge service for all my guests. In your absence, I will ensure your guests will enjoy their stay and will give your Inn my full attention.

I am available to you for as few as one day in the Tr-State area* which will allow you to sneak away and relax or to give you peace of mind while you run important errands.

Biographical Info

Hi We are Margi & Doug Erickson of 5 Star Innsitters.

We are the former owners of C.W. Worth House Bed and Breakfast in Wilmington, NC. For 22 years we hosted thousands of guests at our 7 guestroom inn, many of whom returned regularly and some are friends for life. Our goal was also exceeding our guests’ expectations. From the first genuine greeting to the hugs before leaving, we enjoyed all aspects of innkeeping. We served a two-course breakfast menu with consideration for dietary requests. Although we did not cater to any one dietary issue, we accomodated everyone’s needs. We knew we needed breaks and hired relief innsitters when we could.

After 22 years we have sold the inn and are excited to travel a bit and help other innkeepers get the R&R they need. Doug is a ‘handyman’ and can handle issues/repairs as they arise. We are both keen to details. We will provide you with a full written report after our experience at your bed and breakfast. Both Margi & Doug cook the breakfasts and are well versed in ThinkReservations. We would prefer one week or less and wish to stay within North Carolina for the time-being. Eventually we would like to travel to Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, Florida and California as we have family members in each of those states.

We look forward to giving your guests 5 star service!

Call us today and plan your time away!
We can be there for you so you can take away time to smell the roses! Innkeepers invest hours and hours of time to develop a successful bed and breakfast. Time away for rest and relaxation is important for rejuvenation of the bed and breakfast owners. We know! There are also times when the necessities of family life events also are important for time away, i.e. weddings, funerals, hospital visits…..

As past owners of an award-winning bed and breakfast of 20 years, we can appreciate how important it is to an owner to be confident in the abilities of an innsitter to attend to the inn and its guests. Our goal has always been to be perceptive of guests’ needs, to make them feel comfortable in the bed and breakfast environment, to pay attention to details, and to provide a dining experience for the guests at breakfast.

Our History: In 1997, we established the Deutsche Strasse Bed and Breakfast in New Ulm, MN. At that time, there were no bed and breakfasts in this charming town and we were satisfying a definite need in that town. The Deutsche Strasse received several awards while we were owners, including the Trip Advisor Award of Excellence for several years, the Best Historic Bed and Breakfast in Minnesota, and it was rated as the top bed and breakfast in New Ulm on Trip Advisor.

After 20 years of enjoying our innkeeping career and lifestyle, we sold the business and “retired” to a small town on a river that connects two lakes.  We found, though, that after eight months of the quiet life, we missed the role of being hosts. We now offer our applied experience to being innsitters when owners of bed and breakfasts need to get away for pleasure, family, or health.  We are looking forward to meeting you!

You Deserve to be “the Guest”. Off on your own adventures, exploring new horizons… My care of your Inn allows you to do just that- -worry free. I will do my best to fill your shoes, whatever size… I wear a size 9. 
 
My name is Deb, however you may hear me referred to me often as “Chef Tokie” as I was  not only the creator/owner of an organic gluten free allergen free baking mix company, Tokie’s, as well as the personal chef to many within the entertainment industry. 
 
As an Interim Inn Sitter there are always challenges, however there is great joy in doing so. The joy of meeting your guests, whether they be return visitors or new to your property. The one constant are the different personalities of the guests themselves.  A welcoming hello always sets the tone of a stay. A brief chat to learn more about what adventures, if any, they seek or juice preference in the morning is important. 
 
Throughout my travels, the one-important-thing I appreciate most about the Inns are the Innkeepers themselves.  It takes a passion for people to make guests feel welcome in their new home, even if only for the night. Meeting other guests and sharing an afternoon cocktail at days end often adds to the joy of their day. Repeat guests know exactly what to expect. It’s the “first timers” that often  need a bit of guidance, and often, they receive it from the guests themselves  during the afternoon tea or cocktail. 
 
 My experience in the industry began in 2017. My previous career as a personal chef in the film industry ended however not before managing many properties with their guests. It was a natural transition and one I’m so happy to have made. Whether it be a small boutique Inn anywhere, USA or Dude Ranch in Montana it’s my pleasure to meet day to day needs of the Inn while owners are away. A happy guest is a returning guest. 
 
In addition to being an Innsitter, I’m also a Chef – certified Nutritionist – certified Wellness Coach.  I’m available for short & long term assignments anywhere USA.
