The first time I stayed at a bed & breakfast was when my wife and I went on our first anniversary vacation weekend. We knew we wanted to go away, we just weren’t sure where or anything you wanted to do.
A colleague of hers showed her a book of bed & breakfasts’ around the United Conditions. She brought the book home to me to have a look to see what I thought about going to one of them for our anniversary. With zero experience (at the time) and zero understanding bed & breakfasts’ I was a bit skeptical. Must really want to spend my weekend staying in someone’s home?
The more I learn the bed & breakfast lifestyle, the more I came to be intrigued, until finally my cousin got hooked and we booked a bed & breakfast in upstate Vermont. I can honestly say it was a fun time. The bed & breakfast owners treated us like royalty, waited on us like we were a king and queen, and meals is (that was included in purchase price) was simply unbelievable.
Since then my wife and I have been to two other bed & breakfasts, one in Williamsburg, VA and another in upstate Long island near Seneca River. Although the concept each bed & breakfast were similar, they were different in a variety of ways. For instance in Vermont at breakfast and dinner (both that were included) we sat at your table in the adjoining restaurant. In NY and VA we ate a massive table with each of the other guests. In VA the owners took care of everything, well them and their kids. In NY and VT the owners ran the place but also had help to get rooms ready and look after the place clean. In VT we had our own outside entrance to our own room as if the room was our very own house. In NY and VA that you had your own bedroom in the same house with the other guests.
Regardless of whichever style you choose, if you never ever stayed at a bed & breakfast you should. Each one was wonderful and you really felt like your story were part of the owner’s family as stayed there.
I would recommend first pick a setting where you know you would delight in to stay. Would you like the mountains? How about the sun or a tropical island? Once fully grasp what you desire to do, take a look up the bed & breakfasts within areas that you have targeted and start reading up with them. Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other book stores have awide variety of books you can try without purchasing to get this information. Additionally you can go to your local library or look to your bed & breakfast directory online.
Once you experience the location and motivate it narrowed down one or two possible bed & breakfast choices, start pricing them out and find if they have been your budget. Let me tell you that they are a bit pricier then a normal hotel room (some of them anyway). However verify which kind of amenities you get for your the cost. Most come with breakfast, otherwise always be just be called Bed & move out of my house in the morning. You get the point. Some also serve dinner and offer afternoon tea & snacks. Find out what you get for your money. It will definitely along with your decision.
