Bed And Breakfast Inns - For a Perfect Honeymoon or Weekend Getaway Stay!

November 01, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 99

Whether you are going on your honeymoon or simply looking for a romantic getaway, or wish to be spoiled and felt cared for, a bed and breakfast inn is definitely a place you should stay. These inns offer a more personal touch than the standard hotels and motels. They are known for their excellent breakfasts and one on one service. I've been all across the United States and I've stayed at bed and breakfasts from the Napa Valley to the Ozarks in Missouri, and I've yet to be disappointed. Some were small, having only one or two rooms, while others were much larger. But the one thing they all had in common was the warm and friendly service from staff who tried to get to know me and make my stay an enjoyable and pleasant experience.

What You Should Expect

When reserving a room with the staff, be sure to ask for specifics about the room size and number of beds. Sometimes a "single" may refer to a single twin bed, or it might be a room which has one double bed. The term "double" might refer to a room with two twin beds or one double bed.

The bathrooms could include anything from a small closet with only a toilet, sink and shower to two rooms having a separate bath and shower. The reason for the sometimes odd configurations is because of the fact that many of these inns are old homes that had no indoor plumbing when originally built, and the bathrooms were later added wherever space could be found. Some inns have shared baths in one common area. If you would rather not share a bathroom with other guests, it might be worth paying the small extra fee to reserve a room with its own bathroom.

Most traditional inns will not have a television or telephone in the rooms. Most will have these objects in public areas for all guests to use. But in the age of smart phones and laptop computers this may not be such an inconvenience to people as it once may have been.

Fantastic Food

You will find that the food is one of the greatest benefits of staying at a bed & breakfast. You can expect to receive the freshest of everything including the eggs, muffins, and fruit. These innkeepers pride themselves on serving the freshest home made meals. Before you reserve your room, make sure the inn offers exactly the kind of meal you prefer, whether it be a continental breakfast (coffee, cereal, toast, pastries), or a fully served breakfast including things like eggs, bacon, pancakes or french toast.

Other Things To Consider

Payment Accepted: Most inns will accept most major credit cards and cash. They might not accept all credit cards or checks though, so be sure to ask ahead.

Cancellations and deposits: Some inns will require at first night's deposit. If you cancel the reservation before your stay you may lose the deposit. Be sure to ask about these policies when reserving your room.

Length of visit: Many inns will require that you book more than one night on weekends.

Children as guests: Most inns only prefer older children to stay as they are usually more quiet than the younger ones. Again, ask about any age restrictions the bed and breakfasts may have.

Smoking: A lot of bed and breakfasts have a no smoking policy and will even charge your credit card for cleaning fees if any smoking is discovered in the room or on the premises.

Pets: Although some inns will welcome small well-behaved pets, they usually will not. Call around for pet friendly B&B's.

A bed and breakfast can provide accommodations that will give a personal and truly unique travel experience with a touch of hometown flavor. These cozy and charming bed and breakfast inns or an excellent choice for a getaway or business trip.
