Questions?  - 
 
Anyone have any experience with the Henry vacuums? We need to purchase a new vacuum for our Inn and cottages. I want a canister vac and have always had good luck with Miele vacuums, but when I went to the vacuum store the owner recommended the Henry and now two other people (non-inn owners) have as well claiming it's commercial as opposed to residential, larger bag capacity, less expensive bags, longer motor warranty, longer cord, etc.

These all sound like great (and helpful) attributes for an innkeeper and I know the vacuum is a tool and shouldn't have to "match" the decor of our 240 year old Inn, but I can't quite get past the red smiling face of the Henry. Does anyone actually own one of these vacuums? I would be interested in hearing your experience regarding its performance and also if you know if they can be ordered without the face (I've heard both yes and no from two different distributors). Thanks in advance!

We use it everyday for vacuuming, but have used for maintenance cleaning as well. We clean our own rooms but I guess he could get bashed about if you weren't careful, but then again so could anything! I've not really thought about his face before but at least he's smiley and not sad!!!

A nice piece on our farm and lodging written by nationally syndicated columnist Eileen Orgintz of Taking the Kids. We had a great time here on the farm with Eileen and her family. So much fun to share our passion with guests who are so interested in learning about fresh, local food! Thanks Eileen.

Sure Lynn. We love the Putney Craft Tour and would be happy to share and repost the story to help promote the tour to our Inn guests and others in the area.

Yikes! I don't remember the exact number, but we've had well over 200 Trip Advisor reviews for a long time. Just checked my TA listing and it now says we have 167 reviews! They did recently remove a negative review from an angry person who never even stayed here, but where did the other 40 or 50 reviews go???? Anyone else have this happen to them? Anyone know who to contact at TA? There's nothing on their help page about missing reviews nor can I find a phone number that connects to a real person.

Thanks Judy, have posted a few but would make sense to keep posting more to push the old ones down.

For those of you who offer custom engraved champagne flutes for your weddings +/or romance packages, is there a company and/or particular design you have experience with you'd recommend? Thanks!

They sell in 32 item increments, possibly other increments for other glasses. Contact David at DNJ and ask.  Many many innkeepers have a dislike, a disgust or an aversion to all things weddings...  I can't get into my DNJ account so the pricing might be less due to it being "wholesale."
