The Hindsons have years of experience as innkeepers, and they say the difference between a bed and breakfast from a traditional hotel is really quite simple.

"The key is to give people what you want. It's pretty simple. Have the accommodations to where it's some place you would like to go," Greenway House Bed and Breakfast innkeeper, Candace Hindson said.

Hindson says times have really changed and they now stay busy throughout the year, but the summer time is when traffic really picks up.
