Travel for Less with Bed and Breakfast Trips

More Memories for Less Money: Why Choose a Bed and Breakfast for Your Next Vacation

It’s the last few weeks of summer and you are ready to get away. Before going to a big name hotel website, consider another option; look into a few friendly bed and breakfasts. The possibilities are endless from one-room inns to larger boutiques, from historic farms to elegant or historic, and city to country. Once you read through this list you’ll wonder why you ever stayed in a hotel.


Concierge Services. Why wait in line in a stuffy hotel lobby to ask for travel tips when you can have a casual conversation with innkeepers over breakfast? Bed and breakfast owners love their city and their neighborhood. They listen to you and then share stories and local information they know will make your visit memorable (no tips necessary).

Complimentary Breakfast. Vacations are supposed to be stress-free, so why do you need to shower, get dressed, and search for a breakfast place all before your first cup of coffee? Take the hassle out of mornings with a gourmet breakfast right downstairs from your room. With signature menus breakfast becomes so much more than just the first meal of the day, it becomes part of your culinary vacation experience. Plus many B&Bs offer 24-hour coffee and tea service, so you can sneak down in your bathrobe for a quick cup of joe before getting in the shower.

Make Friends. Bed & breakfasts feature numerous occasions for mingling with other guests. Chat about your plans over breakfast or share stories of the day during a wine and cheese reception. Don’t forget about the innkeepers. Many people return to the same B&B year after year because of the innkeepers.

The Buildings are Part of the Adventure. Several B&B are housed in renovated historic buildings; sit in the same room where George Washington ate breakfast or listen to tales of spirits that still roam the halls. Guest rooms may boast distinctive décor and you can opt for romance or inspire your quirky side. Inns as old as from 1667 (Stephen Daniels House) tap your imagination.

Save Money. Most bed & breakfasts provide free parking and Internet access along with complimentary breakfast and bottled water. Stay in a hotel and all of those “little” extras can set you back about $50 a day. Save money on amenities; instead splurge on an amazing dinner or experience. You can also opt to visit an inn that offers 50% of a two-night stay. Read how one couple has been doing this for 25 years.
