Operating Successful Bed & Breakfast

The first time I stayed at a bed & breakfast was when my wife and I went on our first anniversary vacation weekend. We knew we wanted to continue away, we just were not sure where or what we wanted to do.

A colleague of hers showed her a book of bed & breakfasts' around the United States. She brought the book home to me to have a look to see what I thought about going to one of these for our anniversary. With zero experience (at the time) and zero an understanding of bed & breakfasts' I thought i was a bit skeptical. Do people really want to spend my weekend staying in someone's home?

The more I discover the bed & breakfast lifestyle, the more I became intrigued, until finally my girlfriend got hooked and we booked a bed & breakfast in upstate Vermont. I can honestly say it was a great time. The bed & breakfast owners treated us like royalty, waited on us like we were a king and queen, and meal truck (that was included within our purchase price) was simply unbelievable.

Since then my girlfriend and I have been to two other bed & breakfasts, one in Williamsburg, VA and another in upstate Manhattan near Seneca Square. Although the concept of each bed & breakfast were similar, these different in several different ways. For instance in Vermont at breakfast and dinner (both of which were included) we sat at our table in the adjoining restaurant. In NY and VA we ate a big table with most of the other guests. In VA the owners took care of everything, well them and their kids. In NY and VT the owners ran the place but also had help to get rooms ready and continue the place fully clean. In VT we had our own outside entrance to our room as if the room was many of our house. In NY and VA you had your own bedroom in the same house with the opposite guests.

Regardless of whichever style you choose, if you have never stayed at a bed & breakfast you should. Each one was wonderful a person really felt like your story were part on the owner's family when you stayed there.

I would recommend first pick an apartment where you know you would delight in to stay. A person like the reams? How about the sun or a tropical island? Once you understand what you want to do, take a look up the bed & breakfasts their areas that you have targeted and start reading up with them. Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other book stores have an assortment of books you can think about without purchasing purchase this information. Also you can go to your local library or look for a bed & breakfast directory online.

Once you have the location and comprehend it narrowed down one or two possible bed & breakfast choices, start pricing them out and see if they are formed in your budget. Let me tell you that they are a bit pricier then a normal hotel room (some of them anyway). However verify what kind of amenities you get for your reasonable price. Most come with breakfast, otherwise it would just be called Bed & get out of my house in the morning. You get the guide. Some also serve dinner and offer afternoon tea & snacks. Find out what you receive for your money. It will definitely benefit your decision.
