5 Things You Shouldn't Do at a Bed and Breakfast

When staying at a Bed and Breakfast there are some things that you should't do! We have listed the top five in our opinion.

1. You should't expect the breakfast to be in a line like a hotel!

Most B&B's offer a sumptuous, home cooked meal. Bed and breakfasts pride themselves on offering a meal that is freshly baked and often times provided by their local growers. Assuring you a hot and delicious meal to start your day.

Stuffed muffins with chocolate syrup served at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast is one of the first courses that you might be served. 

2. You shouldn't expect the same old room in every town you visit. 

You will never find a B&B that is exactly like all the others. Each one is unique and reflects the owner and innkeeper. Providing an authentic and real experience. Not your cookie cutter furniture or typical boring decor, but a sense of honesty and genuine ownership of their home.  You are welcome there!!!

The Bethany Dawn Suite at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast. One of four guest rooms available at the Inn. 

3. You shouldn't expect to depend on online reviews of area events.

As a guest at a B&B you are welcomed by a real live person. One who knows their area and what it has to offer. They can give you ideas on what to see, where to go and what to do, much better than an internet search. 

Relaxing getaway at Sweet Gum Bottom. Enjoy walking trails or just sitting quietly in the garden.

4. You shouldn't expect the hectic everyday struggles of real life.

Relaxation and peacefulness are abundant at most B&B's Especially in the south. Everyone desires to escape the hectic life we lead and a B&B is the best way to do that! We specialize in creating a sense of calmness and beauty. A great way to escape! 

Peace and quiet!

5. You shouldn't expect to be treated like you're a number.

You are always top priority at a local B&B. You have a name and deserve to be greeted and talked with, if you desire it. Our goal is to make you comfortable and to provide a place that you can rest and relax. Unlike hotels that require you to get up and get out, we like for you to sleep in and enjoy yourself and the time you have to spend together.

We hope you enjoyed reading about things you shouldn't find and a B&B and watch for the next blog about what you should find! lol
