After my brother and his wife ended up staying a very uncomfortable three days in an old cabin, all by themselves, they decided to ask our opinion. He was really anxious for all of us to get together for the holidays, and I was surprised that he hadn’t yet asked if they could use my bed and breakfast. If they had, would not have said no, but I would have needed advanced notice so I could not book any guests. He asked me what I thought of his search and I told him it was too broad. He needed to add in that he wanted to have modern amenities, which included a furnace and hot water heater. He needed to state that he needed accommodations for twelve people. I told him that it would be nice if he were able to get a place that had a kitchen so I could do the cooking, but at this point, I would be happy with a HVAC system. In the past, he has not been very successful in finding a cabin with HVAC. He has had fireplaces, a wood stove, and one time there was a pot belly stove. None of these were able to keep the cabin comfortably warm. If he just finds something that has a good heating system, I’m sure that most of us will show up. I could probably offer my bed and breakfast, but I don’t know if I want that crowd, because they will all expect to be treated like guests. I think everyone should have to clean up after themselves.
