So we bought land 30 acres. We plan to live off the grid build a house use only solar and wind energy. I think we should build 2 little studio cabins that also only have solar. We would rent them out as a B&B. We will raising live stock, growing fruits and veggies and fresh honey. I plan on cooking a warm breakfast but would make fresh bread, granola bars and muffins, fresh milk and juice.  All organic and fresh put a hammock out side there cabin. They would have choice of having food delivered or come down and eat. Is this a place you would pay to stay at. It would be in the Tennessee  mountains.

Me personally, no, BUT I know a lot who will.  Our family owns two B & B's in upstate NY and I'm not a fan of staying in them as a guest because of it lol, but they are popular and your theme sounds really nice.  Good luck with your endeavor!

 Not my thing, personally, but I know people who would enjoy that.

 I have been in a B & B once and I wasn't really fond of it.

I've never stayed at a B&B before but my DH and I plan to next time we go on a weekend getaway. I think it sounds lovely. We love beaches, night life and all that kind of stuff when we go on trips, but trying a B&B is on my list.

I wouldn't, but I already live on a farm, so going to another farm isn't my idea of a vacation.  KWIM?

It sounds intreasting.  I think a big determination of success would be why would someone be there to need a place to stay in the first place.  Are you assuming that these people will come soley for the sake of staying at your property?   You would have a very hard time convincing someone to spend their vacation time and money on your property vs the thousands with pools & nearby attractions.  Best of luck on your new property though!
