Bed and Breakfasts Explained (in 140 Characters or Less!)
Bed and Breakfasts are All About Comfort
Far from the norm of high volume hospitality, bed and breakfast owners take the time to treat every guest as a member of the family. When you stay at a bed and breakfast, you’re going to feel like you’re at your new home away from home.

Bed and Breakfasts are All About Community
Bed and breakfast owners typically have deep roots in the community in which they are located. You’ll find that many of them will source local ingredients for meals. And because many innkeepers are locals, you’re going to get the best advice on restaurants, community events, and directions.

Many bed and breakfasts serve a full, sit-down meal each morning of your stay featuring signature recipes!
