A Beautiful Virginia Bed and Breakfast is yours for $150 and an Essay
The owners of The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast are offering the writer of an essay the chance to win their fabulous six room bed and breakfast in Rocky Mount Virginia. The adventure begins with a short 250 word essay about "What owning a bed and breakfast would mean to you"
"Dreams do come true," shares Shellie Leete, who co-owns The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast in Virginia along with her husband Tony Leete.
All it takes is a 250 word essay, plus $150 to enter this contest. Contest opens July 1, 2015 and closes on September 1, 2015. The chosen essay will be based on creative writing skills and following the guidelines. No innkeeping experience is required.
Someone will win this incredible bed and breakfast as a home and business. And live in what the owners, Shellie & Tony Leete describe as "One of the most wonderful places on earth to live and raise a family, Rocky Mount, Virginia."
The Leete Family have owned and operated The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast for the last 12 years as a family business. Their two lovely daughters have grown up and worked at the B&B where they met visitors from all over the United States and World. The youngest has just graduated from Franklin County High School after four years playing trumpet in the marching band.
"There are a ton of opportunities found in this community," says Tony Leete who is excited for a new innkeeping family to experience the blessings of owning a fantastic bed and breakfast. "You won't need to hire staff, as there are a total of 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, 2 of which are dedicated to the owners giving them plenty of privacy and personal space. Whoever wins the essay contest will love being their own boss and running the inn their own way with their unique style."
Shellie adds, "Variety is the spice of this innkeeper's life; it is all part of what makes owning and operating a bed and breakfast so much fun!"
After following the essay contest for The Center Lovell Inn in Maine, the family would now like to offer this opportunity to a fresh set of innkeepers, who they hope fall in love with this Circa 1895 Queen Anne Victorian mansion as much as they have, and Shellie Leete adds, "Now it's your turn!"
With there being only one winner in the Maine Essay Contest, the Leete Family innkeepers at The Claiborne House B&B invite those non-winning entrants to set their sights and renew their dreams in this new essay contest, set in a wonderful state where the motto is "Virginia is for Lovers" and southern hospitality abounds. Virginia will knock your socks off, she has a temperate four seasons, and abundant outdoor recreation at every turn.
