The popularity of bed and breakfast inns across America continues to grow as travelers seek a unique experience.
With more than 50 bed and breakfast inns as part of the Texas B&B Association, the amenities awaiting guests range from specialty services such as spa treatments to historical landmarks. The days of thinking that only your grandparents stayed at a B&B are gone.
According to B&B owners, the age range of guests spans the continuum, with more millennials seeking a one-of-a-kind experience that the “typical” hotel does not offer.
Staying at a B&B offers a more personal touch where you will meet your innkeeper. The sterile check-in time is gone, replaced with a friendly smile and hearty welcome. While amenities range from free wifi to snacks, the big difference is in the atmosphere.
Spending the night at a B&B is like sharing a home. Most bed and breakfasts allow guests to spend time in the living area, parlor, and great room. Sometimes a raging fireplace in the hearth conveys a warm and cozy evening, or a swing on the veranda provides a romantic end to a hectic day. Regardless of the features the B&B has, a personal experience is guaranteed.
Now it would not be a B&B without the breakfast. Usually, guests can expect a full-course meal with some local favorites and pleasant conversation. After all, a good breakfast is the best way to start the day, especially when you are on vacation, exploring a new area.
