Who's that working behind the front desk?

It looks like my neighbor! Guests checking in at the 25-room Elizabeth Pointe Lodge on historic Amelia Island may very well be greeted by someone they know. Innkeeper apprentices work all job positions at the inn in anticipation of making a career change to the innkeeping profession.
Ready to open an Inn?

Many new innkeepers attend our apprentice program just before opening their inn. It is a perfect opportunity to plan out their own operational systems.
Forms, Systems & Suppliers

Each apprentice goes home with a 200+ page resource manual that includes sample operating policies, forms and reports as well as vendor and supplier contact information.
Pre-requisites & Registration

Completion of a recognized aspiring innkeeper seminar or prior hospitality experience is required for enrollment.

A "typical" three-day/two-night program includes the program, program materials, lodging and meals. The investment is $1350 for an individual or $1950 for two participants.
