Bed and Breakfasts, also known as B&B’s have been around since the dawn of man. In earlier days homeowners would open their dwelling to weary travelers, and generously include breakfast in the price of a night’s stay.

A demonstration of goodwill was one reason to bestow hospitality upon a stranger, but also the incentive of a supplemental income was an added bonus. The welcoming and loving nature of the residents made them a perfect spot for a traveler to rest his head and fill his belly.

Bed and Breakfasts: From Monastery to Luxury Destination

Throughout Europe, the traditional B&B grew in popularity, and thanks to the British Isles, the term formally stuck. The grateful traveler was offered a room among the family along with possibly three or four other guests, with perhaps one bathroom for all. Not surprising, one of the earliest forms of a bed and breakfast was the monastery. Although Europeans had been taking advantage of the Bed and Breakfast experience for decades, the idea finally crossed the ocean around 1960 and landed in the US. Although B&B’s were often used to supplement a homeowner’s income, today they are no longer viewed as low cost lodging facilities.

Luxury Bed and Breakfasts

Today, B&B’s are seen as an attractive alternative to the typical standard chain hotel or motel room, and they can be found all around the world. Having personalized service that is quaint, homey and welcoming attracts the most seasoned traveler to experience the extraordinary, with amenities that can be just as luxurious as a five star hotel. Typical Bed and Breakfast guests share a bathroom however many will provide you with your own bathroom, along with toiletries and in some, a full service spa!

Bed and Breakfasts: A Combination of Privacy and Sociality

Breakfast is most definitely included, sometimes along with lunch and dinner. Some of these cooks for Bed and Breakfasts have made quite a name for themselves and there are cookbooks that feature their fabulous recipes. Homeowners may still live in the house, but occasionally they are in a secondary residence near by. It is refreshing to be included as one of the family, and can be a lovely combination of privacy and sociality. Napa Valley’s Belle Epoque B&B features its own wine cellar and wine tastings nightly.
