Timeless Retreats Romantic
BED & BREAKFASTS ARE IDEAL FOR SMALLER WEDDINGS
Some are Victorian. Others are modern. You might even find log cabins. No matter how they’re designed, bed and breakfasts are romantic retreats offering personalized service and exceptional hospitality. Popularized in the 1980’s, the appeal of bed and breakfasts rests upon innkeepers knowing your name, breakfasts that typically include more than bagels and coffee and romantic
amenities such as in-room Jacuzzis and fireplaces.
The relationship between innkeepers and guests is very unique at bed and breakfasts. Innkeepers take the time to chat with guests and to provide them with information about nearby activities. For most innkeepers, meeting and interact- ing with people is what drove them to become innkeepers to begin with.
Bed and breakfasts are typically large homes that have been transformed into beautiful hideaways. Many times the historic homes have been rescued from abandonment and saved from demolition so that you can have all the comforts of home without the ringing phones, housework or busyness of everyday life. In other instances new buildings are erected in areas where some- one sees a need for a bed and breakfast.
Newlyweds often stay at bed and breakfasts to provide a home away from home until the upcoming honeymoon. Of course,
a B & B can often times be a honeymoon retreat in itself.
