6 Examples of Manly Bed and Breakfast Inn Adventures

Lake and River Fishing

Beer and fishing go hand-in-hand. Do a beer tour, tasting, or both at Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City, MO. Then be sure to bring your favorite brew back to the Inn on Crescent Lake** because you’ll need something to drink as you fish for large-mouth bass or catfish in the fully-stocked ponds. Later, you can relax in the year-round outdoor hot tub.


Sometimes you fish all day and never get a nibble. Not at Run of the River B&B** in Leavenworth, Washington; a rainbow trout is guaranteed for your first fly fishing lesson. The Reel-axation package also includes a luxury suite for two nights, two days of fly fishing lessons and guided fishing, all necessary equipment, breakfast boxes, and picnic lunches.

Horseback Tour

Have a guy that can’t get enough of the outdoors? Schedule a one or two-hour horseback tour of the majestic red sandstone rock formations of Colorado Springs, CO. The Holden House 1902 Bed & Breakfast** can book your excursion with their Western Skies package. Immerse yourself in the outdoors in a mountain log home at Black Forest Bed & Breakfast, Lodge, and Cabins.** Make time to go rock climbing, hiking, or whitewater rafting while you are in the area.

His stomach, and his heart, will thank you for the prime rib, filet mignon, or chicken entrée.
