What exactly is a bed and breakfast? Bed and breakfasts are lodgings with a twist.
It’s a sort of hybrid between a luxury hotel and a private home, embodying the best of both worlds. A B&B is generally a small establishment with three to six guest rooms instead of the 50 to 100 or more found at most hotels. The owners live on-site and interact with travelers as if they were invited guests rather than anonymous temporary room numbers. And guests are treated to many little deluxe touches like personal concierge services, fresh flowers in the rooms, and chocolates on their pillows. And, of course, there’s the “breakfast” in bed and breakfast, a sumptuous home-cooked repast that comes with the price of the room and is served each morning in a communal dining room.
