 March 22, 2016 – The Atlantic House Bed and Breakfast in Ocean City ,MD has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity; Tesla Destination Charging.  Tesla High Power Wall Connectors add up to 60 miles of range per hour to Model S and Model X, charging the vehicle overnight and replicating the convenience Tesla owners are accustomed to at home.

The Atlantic House Bed and Breakfast joins a rapidly growing network of resorts in Tesla’s Destination Charging Program. Tesla partners with hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world to offer High Power Connectors as an amenity for visitors, allowing them to charge their Tesla Model S at locations where they want to stay for several hours like hotels, ski resorts, and restaurants. Tesla vehicles offer 270 miles of range on a single charge so the High Power Wall Connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours.

The Atlantic House Bed and Breakfast is constantly finding new ways to heighten the guests’ experience. By combining leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to provide outstanding service and offerings, we now have the ability to offer guests a seamless and convenient charging experience during their stay at The Atlantic House Bed and Breakfast

The Atlantic House Bed and Breakfast and other Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla’s interactive webpage and were recently GPS located on Model S and Model X’s navigation through a free software update sent wirelessly to the car. Tesla owners are now able to use the in-vehicle 17” touchscreen to easily plan trips and locate the property.

Maryland Innkeepers: Consider a Portrait Photographer

March 20, 2013 by Maryland B&B Association

Maryland innkeepers understand that in this day and age of internet marketing, achieving instant rapport with a prospective guest is essential and your website is the crucial portal to your future success.

Professional photography of your inn including special features and your food service is easy, but what about a photo of you?  Most innkeepers don’t consider good portraiture of themselves as a key component of the sales process, but people want to put a human face on the experience they are about to enjoy!

 The guest’s overnight experience involves more than just selecting the room they want to stay in. They are choosing you as well!  It is your labor & love of the world of innkeeping that makes your inn a warm and inviting destination.  Your guest is seeking the unique experience of a bed and breakfast, and that includes choosing “a unique place and a friendly face”.

A professionally produced environmental portrait is an essential component of unique branding. There is no other you!

What exactly is an environmental portrait? Simply put, it is an image placing you in your element reflecting the image you want to portray of your inn.

If your inn style is casual, then our photo shoot will be casual.  If your style is formal and upscale, your portrait will reflect that. If you have a strikingly unique feature to your inn, we will make that the focal point in our portrait of you.

When contracting the professional to photograph you in your establishment, an additional qualification to consider is that photographer’s ability to bring out the best in you.  Looking at the photographer’s portfolio will showcase how well they capture the individual in their environment.

It is an old axiom but a true one:  you only get one chance to make a good first impression.

You are your inn, so remember to let your future guests see you both at your best through the lens of a professional photographer!
