Do you know the number one reason people don’t stay at a bed and breakfast when they travel is they don’t think of them? Hotels and motels dominate the market and when travelers look for a place to stay, they unfortunately think of a hotel or a motel. However, there is a better way to stay!!
When was the last time you went to a hotel and were treated like family? Bed & Breakfasts are small family owned businesses where the owners/ families are involved in every facet and every detail of the business. Do we care about you and your comfort? You bet we do! Owning a B&B is a lifestyle and most innkeepers are living out their dreams every day. The most important thing to us is you having an enjoyable stay and we will do just about anything to ensure you have a memorable experience. Pick a B&B and read their reviews. Inn-goers rave about the fabulous hospitality and friendship that innkeepers offer during their stay. In fact, for many B&B travelers, the innkeeper was what made the stay special. We love what we do and it shows!
Many of the myths that people think of when they think of a Bed & Breakfast are just not true anymore.
Myth #1- I will have to share a bathroom. You will NOT have to share a bathroom with your neighbor. Trust me, we don’t want to share a bathroom with a stranger and we won’t ask you to either. Most B&Bs including the Carriage House Bed & Breakfast have private bathrooms in each room.
Myth #2 – Old houses equals no amenities. Many travelers assume that because many bed & breakfasts are in old historic homes that they will not have the amenities that they are used to at home. Not true at all. Hey we live and work here too! Most bed and breakfasts offer everything that you would have in a hotel such as Internet and cable TV. In fact, at the Carriage House B&B, we have replaced all of our old box TVs with brand new flat panel TVs. So now you can be as comfortable in your room here as you would be at home watching your favorite shows or game.
Myth #3 – Bed and Breakfasts are only for couples. Don’t get me wrong, Bed & Breakfasts can be very romantic places. That is how Tom and I got hooked on B&Bs, but Bed & Breakfasts can be many things to many people. In fact, bed and breakfasts can be a perfect place for a girl’s weekend or a single guy or girl just trying away from the hustle and bustle of their lives. I would go so far to say that we can make your stay be whatever you need it to be. Just let us know and we will do our best to make it happen.
So next time you are looking for a place to stay on your travels. Remember, there is a better way to stay! Skip the hotels and motels and stay at a bed and breakfast. I promise, you will be glad that you did.
