Connecticut Bed and Breakfast

Connecticut Bed and Breakfast

Connecticut, Getaways Select Registry – September 1, 2011

Heading to Connecticut anytime soon? While you're there, you're going to need a place to stay. The question is: are you going to spend the night in a high priced hotel that eats up half your travel budget, are you going to stay in a cheap motel with leaky pipes and basic cable, or are you going to actually enjoy your stay in Connecticut? If you chose the latter, you're probably thinking of staying at a Connecticut Bed and Breakfast. If you've never stayed in a bed and breakfast, you're missing out on one of the most pleasant and charming experiences that travel can provide. Here are just a few of the benefits to skipping the hotel search and checking out a nice, cozy B&B, instead.

The Folks

The people you will meet at these Bed and Breakfast establishments are some of the nicest and warmest you'll ever get to know. Really, it makes sense. You can run a front desk and be a surly brute, but to run a Bed and Breakfast, you kind of have to be a people person. One of the main reasons to travel in the first place is to meet new people, but sometimes that's easier said than done. You never know where to go or who to talk to in a new place. With a Bed and Breakfast, you can, at the very least, chat up the owners in the morning over coffee.


Bed and Breakfast rooms feel very lived in, this is a good thing. They're kept clean, certainly, but they lack that sterile, emotionless atmosphere that defines so many hotels. Where a hotel feels like a Hollywood set designed to look like a bedroom, a room in a B&B feels very much like a real home. You're literally a guest in somebody's home at a Bed and Breakfast, and you feel warm and welcomed as such. Where a hotel is a place to sleep for the night, a B&B is a place to live for the day.

The Food

The worst thing about travel is the food. In a perfect world, you'd have the time and money to stop in the best restaurants in town. More often than not, though, the reality is gas station hot dogs, energy drinks to stay awake and a candy bar for dessert. It's never satisfying, and more often than not leads to regret. Bed and Breakfasts offer, well, a real breakfast. They'll serve you bacon and eggs, pancakes, waffles or whatever else the owner feels like cooking up that day. Even if it's not to your liking, many will make exceptions for you, special dishes or ask you the night before what you might like for breakfast. It's a lot more welcoming, and a lot more delicious, than a snack machine or a soda fountain like you'll get at some hotels. It's even better than room service: would you rather eat greasy eggs in front of the TV, or a healthy, filling breakfast with your hosts?  The decision seems easy enough.
