Sometimes, you just need a vacation – now. Summer is over; the new fall chapter of life is beginning, and yet you long for just a little respite before taking on the fullness of the seasons to come. Nothing planned ahead – no advanced bookings, no planned tours. Sometimes the best vacations are the immediate impromptu ones taken right when you need them. A beautiful Bed and Breakfast is a great idea for a last minute getaway.
Getaway with a Select Registry Inn
When seeking a last minute vacation the best advisement is to use Select Registry; they do the work for you, and they do it well. Select Registry is an association founded by a travel writer who went throughout North America identifying unique places (inns and Bed and Breakfasts) that offered what he called, "good honest lodging, good honest food, and good honest feeling." Since 1972 the association has found the good places and compiled those member inns for the traveler, with reviews and descriptions of places that comply with their standards for hospitality, attention to detail, amenities and food. What could be better?
Many Select Registry member inns have inviting last minute getaway packages because they know that kind of vacation is valuable to their guests. By browsing the Select Registry site, one can find the best personal fit for a custom last minute vacation. With the help of these carefully designed packages, one eliminates the chaotic feeling of not having had enough time to prepare because the member inns anticipate those needs and do it for you. It is as though your last minute getaway begins before you even start to book it.
A stay at any Select Registry Inn across North America is guaranteed to provide the needed respite and peace required to rejuvenate one’s mind, body and spirit. Package deals include comfortable accommodations of course, but the custom amenities include everything from special meals to in-room massage, chocolates and champagne. Many member inns have wonderful restaurants on site and offer packages that include a special meal at their restaurant with your stay.
Because of the standards of excellence with Select Registry Inns, you can be as adventurous in your choice as you like without risking your overall experience even with a last minute plan. Innkeepers are happy to direct you to local eateries and wonderful entertainment, and many have special packages that include these amenities. The Select Registry Inns specialize in personal service and attention in a way that standard hotels just cannot. It is the intimacy and the details that the Inns provide that really invite the individual to spend time and return to their Inns.
The variety of getaway packages suits all kinds of last minute adventures. Spend time with girlfriends at the Hamilton Turner Inn in Savannah, Georgia, Girls Getaway Package - two nights and three days, high tea, goody basket, a bottle of chardonnay, DVD movie selection, and snacks. Sneak away for a weekend of fishing and golf at the Inn at Riverbend in Pearisburg, Virginia. Package includes early check in any weekday followed by a round of golf (with cart) at picturesque Castle Rock Golf Course. Return to the Inn and relax on their expansive deck overlooking the New River. Enjoy a full or half day fishing the next day on the New River, one of the nation’s foremost rivers for small mouth bass.
Romance is always a great reason for a quick getaway. Nothing is more romantic than an Inn or Bed and Breakfast. A hotel can never provide the intimacy, privacy and personal attention of an Inn. The ambiance is always personalized and one can be certain that there will never be throngs of people around. Romance is intimacy.
A last minute romantic stay at the Beechwood Inn in Clayton Georgia is lovely. Luxury lodging in one of the queen suites or in the secluded Blueberry Cottage, chilled sparkling wine or champagne, an exquisite seasonal flower arrangement, chocolate truffles custom made and packaged in a decorative container, and a southern breakfast for two are included in the package.
