Why choose to stay in a bed and breakfast?

There are a number of advantages to staying at a bed and breakfast over a more traditional hotel/motel. Guests who stay in bed & breakfast inns get to know the area from someone who actually lives in the same town, and a bed and breakfast offers all the comforts of home--only you don't have to do the dishes!

Bed and breakfast owners are going to know and share the best places for dining, shopping and what sights should not be missed in their town and the surrounding areas. In addition to offering a place to sleep, bed and breakfasts offer you a chance to make new friends, try local wines (subject to licences), and usually all the amenities are included in the price of the room and breakfast too! Each inn is also different, by location, style of home and innkeeper personality.

Many bed and breakfast inns are able to provide their guests with private baths, fine soaps and lotions, free parking, free wireless, evening turn-down service, free local phones calls, today's local newspaper, evening wine & cheese, cookies, CD players, DVD players, dinner reservations--in short everything you would expect at a hotel, but would in many cases pay extra for.

Bed and breakfast owners are passionate about what they do--innkeepers for the most part--are innkeepers because they love to entertain, love the area they live in and want the "innkeeper lifestyle".
