Bed and Breakfasts

For your next vacation, try skipping the mainstream hotel and go for a quaint bed and breakfast. More travelers have recently been opting for the small-town, cozy feel a bed and breakfast offers. For those looking to escape hectic schedules and busy lifestyles, a quiet stay at a B&B can be the perfect remedy.

Researching B&Bs

Bed and Breakfast Inns Online, BedandBreakfast.com and The Ultimate Bed and Breakfast Directory are handy national guides.




Many sites cater to particular destinations, like Israel or Ireland. Canada is home to many picturesque bed and breakfasts. If your adventures take you into U.S. territory, check out the following state directories:

Charming as they are, bed and breakfasts can be unpredictable. Larry and Melissa Herbert made reservations at one while white water rafting in North Carolina. "There were cats everywhere - on the table, the furniture, the counter top," he said. "There were hairballs sticking to the windowsills." The Atlanta couple said they would try another bed and breakfast, but not without asking questions first. "You have to remember you're going into someone's home," Larry said.

Below are a few highlighted hints for staying at a bed and breakfast, courtesy of Bed and Breakfast Center:

  • Donít forget breakfast Ė most innkeepers provide the morning meal for their visitors.

  • Most bed and breakfasts donít allow children. The age cutoff is usually seven.

  • Save some packing and ask in advance what amenities are on hand. The inn might already have particular items like beach towels or sunscreen.

  • Make sure to do some research beforehand. The appeal of bed and breakfasts can be somewhat subjective.
