Vacations provide a getaway from the day-to-day responsibilities of home. But at a hotel, you may sacrifice that comfortable, at-home feeling and grow homesick for your bed. The solution: Stay at a bed and breakfast for the comforts of home with the benefits of a 24-hour full-service staff. Here’s why:
Homemade Breakfast (sometimes in bed)
How many times have you opened your fridge and realized your milk expired… a week ago? There goes breakfast. Although staying at a B&B may feel like home, the breakfast tastes even better when you don’t have to make it. Most B&Bs provide a homemade meal that includes delicious, high-quality ingredients. At some B&Bs, guests can request to have their breakfast served to them in the comfort of their bed.
Don’t Lift a Finger!
Even when you’re just relaxing at home, your responsibilities are in the back of your mind – blocking you from actually resting. The dishes are piled up in the sink, dinner isn’t made, and you have a load of laundry that’s calling your name. Wouldn’t it be nice for all of those chores to disappear for a few days? Say no more. When you stay at a B&B, you are not obligated to lift a finger from the time you check in to when you check out. The innkeepers are happy to provide you with anything you need during your stay. From fresh food to fresh linens, you don’t have to worry about a thing. That includes special requests, too!
Everything Your House Has and More
B&Bs appear similar to the average home because they once were. You’ll likely have access to a guest center with a refrigerator and a coffee maker, have your own room and the ability to enjoy other amenities such as a dining room, living room area, or in the case of Stone Porch – front and back porch views and cozy seating. Some B&Bs also offer guests on-site spa and massage services. With that, you don’t have to worry about the little things you often think about when at home. You can leave all of those worries behind.
Peace and Quiet
Trying to get a minute of peace and quiet at home can seem impossible, especially if you have kids. When getting away to a B&B (where young children are usually not allowed – sorry (not really)) you can truly relax, minus interruptions. B&B inns exude a tranquil ambiance that you often can’t find at home. Plus, the rooms are extremely private and common areas are not crowded like a hotel lobby.
Staying at a bed and breakfast allows guests a relaxing vacation in a quiet and comfortable environment without having to worry about the details.
