And she's not just out to make sure their B&Bs are the best, she's also going to do her damndest to make sure they make a profit! The series explores whether the aspiring B&Bers follow Lisa's plan or go with their own ideas and if Lisa's advice will be enough to help them get glowing reviews when that all-important test guest checks in for an overnight stay.
