There are few folks as savvy about Florida bed-and-breakfast inns as Pattie Detwiler. The Royal Palm Beach woman has visited most of them, teaches aspiring innkeepers and serves as Executive Director of the Florida Bed and Breakfast Inns association.
I created my first Bed and Breakfast as a way to keep a real estate asset. It was the best decision I ever made. My background in construction and finance, along with my ability to host large parties and events at my home (20 acres of property), and my cooking expertise combined to make me a successful bed and breakfast owner. My first bed and breakfast was so successful, I quickly launched into my second location in our downtown area of Main Street.
