Bed & Breakfast?

Garth and I have hesitated toward booking a vacation at a bed & breakfast because most of the decor reminds me of my grandma's house and if you've seen the episode of King of Queens where they stay in a bed & breakfast you would stay at a hotel. But Garth found the most gorgeous little bed & breakfast on a vineyard overlooking Lake Michigan. Wine? Lake view? Yes, please!
We leave tomorrow afternoon for some serious rest and relaxation. The only things we plan to do is the winery tour and hike. So. excited. I'll be sure to give you a full report of our bed & breakfast experience.
Have you stayed at a b & b? Did you enjoy it?

Mrs. Potts said...

How fun!! That sounds wonderful. I think that B&B's can be a lot of fun - especially if you're traveling with your honey.

I LOVE B&B's!!! We stayed in one on our honeymoon for one night, before we left for France. It was devine! The best thing, the decor in the room we chose was themed around old classic movies...so it was adorable. :)

Hope yall have fun and get lots of relaxation!!!

Sunshinemeg said...

That king of queens is one of the funniest ever. It was on just the other night. I bet it will be perfect though, if not run like Carrie did! (As fast as you can...)

Jules said...

I haven't stayed at one but have the same thoughts as you. So let us know how it goes, sounds fab (=

Ashley said...

FUN!! I've always wanted to stay at a B&B, but felt like you did with all of the decor! I'm glad that you guys found a more up-to-date one close by!

Lauren said...

Oh have a fantastic time!!! Sounds like such a relaxing weekend!

LauraAnn said...

That sounds like a fantastic time! Have fun!

We have never stayed at a B&B....always wanted to but have yet to do it so you will definitely have to post a review about your experience!

Autumn said...

Sounds fun! My hubby and I have stayed at one, actually, last year for our birthday. We went to Hot Springs, AR. It was definitely nice and relaxing. The breakfast that was served as a group to all the guests staying there was a little different, but yummy! Overall it was a relaxing experience! Enjoy!

Brittany said...

Sounds wonderful! I've always wanted to stay at one. Can't wait to hear how it goes! Take pics!!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Fun!! I've always wanted to do a B&B but never have for the reasons you mentioned. Have a great time, can't wait to hear all about! Cheers!

katie + bret said...

You'll have to let me know how it goes - B&Bs freak me out so I have never stayed in one :-/ I am odd. I know it.

It will be fab though! ENJOY!

Tara Gibson said...

have a blast! hope its very relaxing bc you deserve it!

Lucy Marie said...

I hope you have a blast. I've never stayed in a B&B but there are TONS really close to my house. We live near Niagara Falls, right in the heart of wine country, so B&Bs and wine tours are the thing to do. There are some very very nice ones. But I agree, I would be skeptical of staying in one without seeing it or hearing about it from someone I trusted. I would not want to end up in a grandma like place. Hope you have a blast.

Erin said...

Sounds great! Enjoy :)

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Have fun! I stayed at one once and it was ok. I didn't like being that friendly with people but it was a cool experience

a H.I.T. said...

We stayed at a great b&b in the Amana Colonies in Iowa. It was lovely, had a hot tub and a pool. And the breakfast was AMAZing. I think you just have to see pics before booking. =)

Have fun!

Sounds like a fun time! ;)

Angie said...

My fam stayed at a B&B in Pennsylvania one time. I love it, cause I love antiques, old things, and quaint things. My younger sisters hated it, they felt like they were staying in some old person's house. They wanted a modern hotel where they felt everything was clean and new. It was just not their scene. I loved it tho, have fun!

The Pink Owl said...

I have stayed at a B&B in TN and Charleston, SC. They were my favorite lodging arrangements to date. The service is usually very personalized, and the food was amazing at both! Hope you have a wonderful time!!!

Mrs. S. said...

Have a ton of fun! I can't wait to hear all about it! I would love to try a B and B sometime.

Shanny said...

d.a.r. said...

We stayed in one once, and um, everyone had to share a bathroom. That was awkward and soured me on B&Bs...

Q, La, and Gooner said...
