about

Damn This InnFailed inn. Perfect Vermont village. Growing business. Besieged rookie innkeepers. Panic. Deborah and Woodes are a bored fiftyish couple from Washington, D.C. who decide to buy a New England inn despite unanimous advice from dozens of inn owners: DON'T. They visit more than twenty available inns, including a farm house with a stinking barnyard. The smitten couple make an offer within an hour after viewing a failed Victorian inn in an attractive Vermont town Challenges begin immediately: a tipsy wedding guest vomits onto the parquetry floor in front of the local Congregationalist minister. A skunk holds two dozen dinner patrons hostage. The inn sewer line collapses hours before the dinner hour. Their promotional brochure repeats the first paragraph. Deborah tumbles down a mountain glen. A bat flies into the inn. A drunken New Year's eve celebrant falls head-first onto the men's toilet with predictably bloody results. A breakfast special is so riotously successful cops are called. Revenue grows but the inefficient steam heating system sucks oil and depletes the couple's savings. Deborah panics as endless business and financial pressures crush her dream.
