Bed and Breakfast Accommodations

B&BBed and breakfast facilities have evolved over the years. They’ve expanded their line of services to include venues for special occasions. A couple of decades ago they provided only what their moniker suggested,  a bed for the night and breakfast in the morning. Historically B&Bs were known to provide spacious, quiet, countryside experiences for short stays. For the most part bed and breakfast establishments have continued to focus  on the personalized friendly services that’s become expected of them.

However, in keeping with the changing times, and competition within the market, many have expanded their services. The bed and breakfast inns are steadily becoming a favorite venue for weddings, birthdays and family reunions. More and more people are discovering that the pleasant atmosphere and quaint locations of bed and breakfast inns are ideal for romantic occasions and family settings.

The slow but steady expansion of services was brought about mainly in answer to the demands of guests. Requests to make facilities available as venues for larger events than what was usually provided prompted bed and breakfast owners to adapt. Normally B&B owners with more than five spare rooms convert their place to accommodate guests for commercial purposes. Usually the owners themselves prepare the meals, cleaned the room etc. Nowadays many have hired additional staff.

Despite the commercialization of the business, the bed and breakfast inns have retained the folksy ambiance that has been their trademark since the inception of B and B accommodations. For the most part they’re still decorated with old paintings, photographs, and other touches of local history that are either from the memorabilia of the owners or acquired from neighbors. And the cost of a night’s stay in and B&B is still generally at a lower price that at a comparable hotels.

Having to hire on additional staff hasn’t diminish the warmth and friendly service provided by most bed and breakfast inns. Owners generally hire people from their neighborhoods, so they tend to have the same character and demeanor of the folks they work for.

In keeping with changing technology, most bed and breakfast operators have made it so potential guest can book rooms at their establishment via the Internet. They’ve made use of the web to promote their accommodations by posting pictures of the buildings, the rooms, amenities and surrounding landscapes. The Internet allows travelers to search for B and B accommodations online, viewing numerous properties and booking the one they want to stay at right online.

Vagabond

Vagabond Travel came into being April 16, 2014 when I departed Canada heading for Mexico City. I have no destination in mind, nor an itinerary to follow. This is a sort of website, journal and travel blog all rolled into one. That's about it.
