Mountain HighThis is my business, a bed and breakfast in Julian, CA.  We`ve been in business for about a year and a half now.  The website was done by me, replacing a much cruder one done by the previous owners.  My goal of the site was to give potential guests a feel for the property and show off some of our amenities.  So far, our web page is what brings in the most guests, with a few coming from referrals and some modest print advertising.I look forward to your impressions and critiques.Scott BakerInnkeeperMountain High Bed & Breakfast & Observatory

    Nice site.  About the only thing I would have liked to see is that instead of a slide show, I would liked to have a "photos" section where I could download and view larger (and more) images.Oh, I don`t like the popup.Steve Mann

    I don`t see why sites like this can`t borrow from the real estate
    agencies, offering a virtual tour? Is it technically expensive or
    difficult? I don`t know...but it seems the technology is all over the
    When I was shooting virtual tours about five years ago, the price my employer charged was $120 for five views.  It included the underpaid photographer and hosting of the tours for one year.

    There are several ways to accomplish a virtual tour...some more expensive than others.  It can be as simple as having a slideshow or images or as complex as a 360 degree view.  You might even consider a short video or even a flash/swish movie that can combine still images and text.
     The file size of the slide show you have on the main page is very large (over 300K)!
