Why Spring into a Bed and Breakfast?

Bed and Breakfasts today are catering to the young and the old.  Many people believe that they are all old houses, with a small bedroom,  and a common room that everyone crowds into to fight over food in a warming pan.  That thought is so far from todays reality.

Breakfast at Pine River Ranch

B&B’s have always led the industry at including breakfast in their price tag.  This was started by the first house to open their door to a guest as a kind way to start their day off right before they had to depart.  Today, B&B’s are still leading the way with not only a good breakfast but usually one homemade using fresh ingredients from the area that surrounds them as well as making sure it meets the new “foodie” standard.

 

B&B’s are like your four-star restaurant; making sure that the quality is off the charts with homemade dishes and not trying to overfill you with frozen food heated up in a microwave.

Many B&B’s have other food and drink options available, for an additional cost, throughout the day for their guests to enjoy.  From local wine and beer in bottles and growlers,  cheese

trays, chocolate covered strawberries, s’mores ingredients, popcorn, hot chocolate, and sometimes meals ready to hit the BBQ.  Guests can have many options to experience throughout the day.
