“My wife and I stayed at La Belle Epoque for a few days to celebrate her birthday. The house is beautiful, and the inside is even more so. The owner, Tracy Mahr, has decorated the house with fall decorations. I would guess the decorations change with the seasons. Tracy herself fixes breakfast, and is both innovative and unique. She creates little wonders from her trove of recipes. She is also a fascinating conversationalist, and despite being in Napa only a few years, has learned a great deal about the area and tried everything she recommends. We took a Platypus Wine Tour (separate review) at her suggestion, and absolutely loved it. The room was comfortable and just as beautiful as the house itself. Decorations throughout the house are reminiscent of the Belle Epoque in Paris, roughly from 1871 to 1919. We will definitely be staying here again.”

Welcome to InnLight Marketing - a service established in the summer of 1998, dedicated to helping small business owners maximize their company's potential and optimize their overall profitability. I specialize in bed and breakfasts, boutique hotels, vacation rentals, restaurants and a host of other owner-operated businesses.

It is my passion to work with entrepreneurs - individuals who are noted for having an independent energetic spirit; who express a readiness and courage to undertake or experiment; who organize, manage and assume the risks of building a business from the germ of a creative idea. Or as Kilby noted, "Entrepreneurs are innovators who use a process of shattering the status quo of the existing products and services, to set up new products, new services ... a person with a high need for achievement."
