Trying Out That Bed And Breakfast

May 6, 2008
After reading so much information online about bed & breakfast businesses I was really curious about trying a few of them out. Since I am going to be visiting family and friends over the holidays I decided to book a couple of reservations. I am ready to have some fun and to check them out.

Since I love Christmas I decided to go with those that had decorated for the holidays. I figured if they have gone to the trouble to make it that inviting then it should be very cozy and well taken care of in every other aspect. I really think this is going to be a fun way to discover on my own what they are all about.

All of us have heard horror stories about bed & breakfasts that just didn't do justice to this particular industry. Since I don't like to take such risks or throw my money away, I decided to do some investigating. In addition to reading the online advertisements I also read what guests had to say about them.

The personalized attention that I got even during the reservation process really got me excited about this adventure. I am going to be picked up by the owner of one of the bed & breakfasts when I go to see my sister. They make this accommodation for their guests as there aren't any taxi cabs offered in that town.

The second bed & breakfast that I will stay at is close to my parents home. It used to be a house so it is in a residential area. If the weather isn't too cold I may even be able to walk back and forth. That would be very convenient and I could enjoy the scenery along the way. It will also give me some space that I really need.

These bed & breakfast locations are going to be my safe haven after I have spent too much time with my family. They are great but I can only take them in small doses. Many of you can understand why I feel this way as you have the same experiences! I also like my solitude and with people surrounding me all day I really want my space when it is time to relax for the evening.

I am expected a warm welcome and to feel right at home. I definitely need some space when I visit my family though. Staying with my sister isn't an option as her home is too small. Staying with my parents is just too difficult due to the differences in our routines. This is going to be the right choice for all of us I am sure.

I am looking forward to my vacation, the holidays, and of course the fun I am going to have at the two bed & breakfast locations I chose. I will now be able to join into the conversations about them at work and online. Almost everyone agrees that they are better than a hotel and I hope they are right. too.
