The basic definition of a bed and breakfast is an inn or private house that offers a room for the night, and breakfast in the morning. Generally, no other meals are offered, as most patrons are tourists who are out for the day. B&B's, as they are nicknamed, are often less expensive than surrounding hotels. Some offer no luxuries, such as room service or concierge service, while others have a staff and perhaps a spa.
Many B&B's are private homes with several rooms. A room may have its own bathroom, or guests might share a bathroom in a hallway. These rooms tend to be less expensive than having a private bath. The breakfasts are prepared by the owners, or by a kitchen staff.
One of the benefits of a B&B is their locations. Often, they are located near or in the heart of beautiful woods, seaside areas and more. In some areas, no hotel is available, but a B&B can offer the perfect getaway.
Lunch and Dinner are served at many B&B's, from local fare to gourmet dining. Fresh crab, sweet corn picked the same morning, apple pie from organic fruit grown on the premises and more are part of the B&B charm. Most of the food served is locally grown and in season, offering unique dining experiences and the tastiest menus. Some businesses will part with their recipes while others guard their secrets.
Searching for a B&B can be a daunting task. The style and quality of properties can vary greatly, and the accommodations can sometimes be less than expected. Many travel forums are full of nightmarish descriptions of hovels masquerading as B&B's. This is why we exist today, we changed this and made B&B's the better choice for lodging.
