Bed & Breakfast lodging, Workshops & so many Paint Nites

​This has been a spring in Ottawa (February, March and April) like no other in the four year history of Spoiled Rotten.  Normally I lay fairly low and put on a couple of workshops and live off KD and forage for whatever unfortunate protein, (aka mice and bugs) I can find; normally lean times. I think since I've invested countless hours into marketing [Full Story]



Technology and booking a room at this unique Ottawa B&B

Well, I don't think Bill Gates is going to be calling me any time soon and I don't think I will ever have bookings online. I'm technologically challenged and yet my friends all come to me to fix their computers.  [Full Story]


Travel, Workshops, Inspiration and Research
This time I was wanting some new inspiration for spiritual workshops and the guinea pig would be Mike Dooley's Soulapolooza in Florida.  He's most well know for TUT, Notes from the Universe that I have received everyday for years.  [Full Story]


Workshops at Spoiled Rotten B&B - Mine or You Renting Space

Workshops at the B&B. Yes, it's that time again. They start when the people stop coming and Lordy I'm pooped.  This was the longest season in three years and it was maniacally busy.  Being the control freak I am, I did 99% of it myself . [Full Story]

Tourism for this Ottawa B&B 2017

Tourism was at it’s best this summer 2017 at this Ottawa B&B. There are some days when this innkeeper wonders why she gets up at 0DarkHundred every day to make the same old tried and true recipes and have the same conversations like the movie Groundhog Day. And then there are days like today that energize my spirit.  [Full Story]

The Concierge Service of B&B Accommodations Over a Hotel in Ottawa

All the really good hotels in Ottawa have excellent concierge service and a great Bed and Breakfast accommodation is no different. An exceptional concierge can make the difference between a 2 star hotel rating and an intimate 5 star [Full Story]

​Gardening in Ottawa, old-timer moments, pool parties and psychics

I just discovered the world's biggest and most well fed groundhog coming daily to my smorgasbord of a garden. When I so much as take a silent picture, it's like he feels like he's being dogged by paparazzi and he high tails it out of there like a bat outta hell. His feet don't even touch the ground. Oh the stews I am planning! [Full story]

How Spoiled Rotten Bed & Breakfast celebrates holidays in the Capital
This year I committed, come hell or high water, to seeing the fireworks at Petrie Island even if I had to go alone. Thank gawd for Meetup.com and the group that was already going there. I was also invited to dinner on Canada Day. Yeah, I know it was a pity invite, but it was fun. When I told them I had to rush out right after dessert, my punishment was to watch the black thunder clouds circle over my car and open up the torrential rains. [Full story

Ottawa's first and only holistic bed & breakfast ... plus new babies and more

I recently read an article about all the quirky Airbnbs out there that the hosts have advertised their places in very unique ways. The author was quite unforgiving, but I know this concept of a Holistic Bed & Breakfast is gold. I now have many more who are drawn to this place of energy like moths to a light, since Like Attracts Like! [Full story]

Millennials, food & fitness ... and how this near-senior keeps in shape at the B&B
​Running a business and trying to stay in shape is a constant challenge. My best motivation to keep fit is right after I’ve showered and weighed myself. That’s the time I should get on my bike to go and work out. It’s also at that time that I realize, I need to be downstairs creating a food masterpiece for breakfast for my guests and I can’t go anywhere, so I don’t. By the time the guests have checked out, so has my motivation.

Spring is coming despite all this snow ... cooking school makes it all better

Not so long ago, there was a five-foot snow tunnel for my driveway. Pretty soon, my outdoor sign will be covered up. [...] And then I took a cooking class at the Innes Road Superstorein Orleans. I met Chef Keith. He’s a wonderful instructor that all the dames love. [Full story]



Spoiled Rotten Bed & Breakfast makes the Top-10 list in Ottawa! 

My most recent guests just told me they found my name on Trip Advisor's Top-10 Bed and Breakfasts in Ottawa! This is fantastic news and something that I have worked so hard to achieve. After working out most of the kinks of the job, I have realized that being a great B&B host is mostly about attitude.
