A bed and breakfast is the perfect place to stay if you want a more personal vacation experience. Without the hustle and bustle of a busy hotel, you’ll get a more intimate experience at a B&B, with some amazing homemade food included. If you’re still planning your summer getaway be sure to look at some of the best bed and breakfasts in the country, according to Bedandbreakfast.com. Each has its own charm and amenities that range from Jacuzzis to buttermilk blueberry pancakes (did we mention the amazing food?).

A bed and breakfast often provides charming and cozy surroundings and, if you find the right one, is often considered a luxury travel experience without the hefty price tag. In fact, B&Bs often provide the best value with offerings and amenities that most hotels wouldn’t dream of providing. These often include:

  • Amazing breakfasts: in many cases, you’ll have a personal chef for your stay. Often it’s the owner of the B&B, but in some cases the owner hires a chef to create amazing meals you won’t soon forget.
  • Personal service: The owners or managers of a B&B know their surroundings – because they live there. Even if they don’t live onsite, they’re often very close by. While you could argue a hotel concierge is similar, they are potentially servicing hundreds of guests at a time. Your B&B concierge could be eating breakfast with you. It’s a completely different experience and they’re invested in making sure you get the most out of your visit.
  • A unique experience: every B&B is different, so explore all options. In many B&Bs you’ll find the extras are worth the stay – wine and hors d’oeuvres in the evening or freshly-baked cookies in your room. Not to mention the often unique surroundings. Many B&Bs are furnished with beautiful antiques or the home itself might have an interesting history.

Finding the perfect B&B for your tastes is just a click away in most cases. You can search by state or area like Midwest Living’s Favorite Midwest B&Bs or the Travel Channel’s Top 10 New England Bed-and-Breakfasts. Your next luxury B&B vacation could be closer than you think.
