Top 10 reasons for choosing a Bed and Breakfast

Every B & B is unique. The owners make it a home. The sense of waking up in someone's home - a place that is loved and cared for - is one of the great joys of travel. Here are our top 10 reasons for choosing a B&B.


1. Romance and relaxation

Bed and Breakfast are known for being quiet and romantic and at Sweet Gum Bottom we strive to provide peaceful surroundings to promote rest and relaxation!

2. The innkeepers are passionate about hospitality!

When you stay in a B & B, you are a house guest and honoured as such. The house, the garden, the decor, everything reflects the style, life and history of your host. The innkeeper is not just a concierge but someone with whom you can trust to provide you with good, local, information. Your fellow guests are not strangers on the elevator but potential new friends over breakfast.

3. Breakfast is always a special occasion.

Bed and Breakfasts take pride in serving you a gourmet breakfast. It's a great time to visit with other friendly guests to find out how they liked a restaurant or activity. Plus, most B&Bs have afternoon snacks. Home made of course!

4. Linens are a luxury at a bed and breakfast.

Mostly European inspired. Count the threads! And they feel wonderful when you slip under the covers. Luxurious bathrobes and custom soaps are also offered at most Inns.

5. A new experience is offered at each bed and breakfast.

No two are alike. Hotels are cookie cut, but homes reflect the owners personalities. Each and every B&B is a new and different experience.

6. Turndown service.

Many bed and breakfasts offer a nightly turndown service. This includes the linens being turned back and chocolates on the pillows. A very nice way to end a beautiful day.

7. Ammenities.

We strive at bed and breakfasts to anticpate your every need. Details are of upmost importance. Massages, pedicures, gift baskets, special packages and romantic getaways are our specialty.

8. Reputation.

Many B&Bs depend on word-of-mouth recommendations. So we always work hard to make each stay the best possible.

9. Great Locations.

Often, a bed and breakfast is in a residential neighborhood, giving a sense of being at your home away from home. You won't find them scattered along the highway. Some are rural and others are historic. But all have something unique to offer in their area.

10. Memories.

Do you remember the motel room that you stayed in 5 years ago? People who stay in bed and breakfasts remember, because the rooms are unique and special and offer what no one else can.

So, next time you're planning a trip, check out Bed and Breakfasts along the way. It will make the journey so much better!
