Updated 06.01.2019:  Looking for that special place to bring that special someone? Over the years, Alan and I have had the pleasure of visiting quite a few romantic bed and breakfasts around the world.

Unique lodging combined with extras like wine and cheese in the afternoon make staying in bed and breakfasts our top choice. Of course the delicious breakfasts rank high on why we stay in b&b’s, too.

Not looking for something romantic? Bed and breakfast accommodations offer a local perspective on a destination as owners share insider tips with their guests. And staying in b&b’s is a relaxing and enjoyable way to travel.

How do we find the best bed and breakfast for our itinerary?

We like to stay in bed and breakfasts for their intimacy and connection to the local scene, as well as the opportunity to meet other travelers. I start my research by checking out the b&b’s website, if they have one.

Then I read online reviews at TripAdvisor—ignore the best and worst reviews to find the true story. I also compare prices, especially when looking for hotels, inns and lodges.

We’ll be adding more bed and breakfast reviews so be sure to bookmark this page. Or subscribe to our weekly broadcast so you’ll be the first to know!
