How Large an Inn Should I Buy?

This important question is key to success (in addition to location). Are you or a partner going to continue with another income-producing career? If so you can afford to purchase a smaller inn – 4 to 8 rooms. Are you planning on the inn becoming totally self supporting? Then you generally need at least 10 rooms. All this is dependent on your goals and the location of the property.  A brief series of questions may be found in this article.
