Breakfast With Tom, The Stories

Breakfast With Tom, The Stories is a book about my successful restoration of the historic Stockbridge Ramsdell House-On-Hudson in Newburgh New York to its original grandeur, and how I ran a lovely bed and breakfast inn in it for eighteen years.

The book is divided into four sections and includes illustrated vignettes along with humorous (and not so humorous) anecdotes and practical tips. It also describes coping with City of Newburgh Historic Code enforcement, local fire codes, unscrupulous General Contractors, and relates the wonderful, and occasionally strange experiences I had as a bed and breakfast host.

The book contains a gallery of pictures and original drawings, and a section about the nuts-n-bolts of starting a bed and breakfast business. This last part features The Survival Kit; a how-to guide full of helpful info taken from my syllabus when I was teaching a college-course on the subject. Fully illustrated in pen and ink original drawings, and photographs.
