What Makes A Bed & Breakfast So Special?

By Mark Hammond

Traditions hotels may be great for some travelers, but if you are looking for a quaint more rural kind of experience, a bed & breakfast options might be perfect for you. Because they include a more personable approach, bed & breakfast lodging is commonly available in smaller towns and rural areas.

What makes a bed & breakfast so special? Unlike a regular hotel, a bed & breakfast has less rooms and is usually run by a single person or family. Instead of a large building, a bed & breakfast usually is a large house with rooms converted for visitors or a smaller building with simple rooms. Your rooms have a more homey appeal as opposed to a regular hotel.

As the name implies, a bed & breakfast is not a place that you will lounge all day in most cases. It is simply a place to sleep and to eat in the morning. Check-in is usually during the late afternoon, and breakfast is served at a specific time. In most cases, breakfast is a real meal cooked especially for guests, not a continental breakfast. It depends on the particular bed & breakfast where you stay.

Most people stay at a bed & breakfast for a short time. There is not rule, however, that says you can’t spend your entire two-week vacation there. Some bed & breakfasts have great tours, games, poolside meet and greets, and other activities for guests to enjoy. Other bed & breakfasts have themed rooms.

No matter what bed & breakfast you choose, try to find one that fits your specific needs. For example, some do not accept families with children under a certain age. Others specifically have rooms only for single travelers. Still others have no handicapped lodging available. Bed & breakfast options are extremely varied, so hunt around until you find the perfect one for you vacation.

Having some r&r in a b&b doesn't necessarily have to take you away from the world outside. A good bnb doesn't take from you your life outside, but rather gives you something more of what you have or what you're not experiencing from your life outside. Just try to choose a spot or a haven capable of giving this to you. A bali villas for rent are a perfect example.
