What makes a good guest room? You probably already know with out really thinking about it; when a host puts a lot of thought into the guest room, you wake up rested and refreshed with everything you need (or possibly forgot).
Here is a list to get you started on creating the perfect guest room (Warning: Your guests may never leave):
If your guests are bunking in a room or space that is usually occupied, like a den or living room, make room for them and clean up the area around the bed, especially the bedside table.
One final touch that will make your guest feel like royalty is the welcome note. It can be as simple as a personal note that reads:
“Welcome to my home. I’m so excited you are here and can’t wait to catch up”
You may also leave a more detailed note that may include restaurant recommendations, wireless password, house phone + fax numbers, and any other contact information. You may also include an itinerary for the guests’ visit -- i.e any dinner parties, cocktail engagements or dinner reservations.
