Learn how innRoad helped this family-run B&B streamline booking and reservation management, leading to a 100% increase in revenue year-over-year.
By The Sea B&B is a family-owned bed and breakfast located in the scenic Cape Cod, MA. Operated by the Narbonne family, By The Sea B&B welcomes vacationers to a picturesque seaside oasis, with 35 guest rooms, 9 suites, and 2 vacation homes available to book year round. The property is also a popular destination for special events like parties, reunions and beachfront weddings.
Many updates and improvements are made to By The Sea B&B each year, but its original structure, authenticity, and historical New England charm remain intact, and are a powerful draw for new and repeat guests from around the world—along with the unparalleled private beachfront location, of course.
By The Sea B&B had previously been owned and operated by a single family for over 50 years when the Narbonnes, lifelong residents of Cape Cod, purchased the property in 2019. In addition to By The Sea B&B, the Narbonnes also own An English Garden Bed & Breakfast and Seashell Motel, all located within a one-block radius.
With three properties to manage, the Norbonnes sought a software solution that would allow for simpler and more streamlined operations and channel management for By The Sea B&B, as well as its two sister hotels.
The family had three goals for their new property management software:
- Increase repeat guest customer base
- Reach younger generations of visitors
- Grow revenue year over year
100% increase in revenue after one year
With innRoad’s easy booking engine and channel management tools, By The Sea B&B can easily update room rates to increase daily occupancy.
Improved efficiency in day-to-day operations
With innRoad’s all-in-one property management system, By The Sea B&B staff are able to record everything about their properties’ day-to-day operations, identify opportunities to streamline tasks, and create new efficiencies around their processes.
“I love the tape-chart and creating a reservation is pretty easy,” says Alexa. By maintaining consistency and integrating with all channel providers, By The Sea B&B improved channel and reservation management, including popular OTAs and direct bookings.
Continued property growth
By The Sea B&B consistently attracts repeat guests year after year, with some guests returning to the property repeatedly over a span of 15 years. With continued growth in repeat guests and an increase in new guests fueled by innRoad’s all-in-one PMS, By The Sea B&B has also grown their staff from just one to six seasonal team members, freeing up more time for management to focus on higher value tasks.
