Best Bed & Breakfast Gift of All Time
Have you always wondered what staying in a bed and breakfast or country inn would be like, but were hesitant to try it out? Or are you a devoted inn lover and want to convert friends or family? Whether you’re the uninitiated or an avid inn guest, the answer could be the 21st edition of Bed & Breakfasts and Country Inns. This illustrated guidebook features a Buy-One-Night-Get-One-Night-Free certificate good at any one of the participating inns.
This Free Night certificate doubles travelers’ vacation dollars. Among the millions who have used it is B&B inn enthusiast David Dryer of Kansas City who has redeemed his Buy-One-Night-Get-One-Night-Free certificates 135 times since 1991.
“I have used the Buy-One-Night-Get-One-Night FREE certificate 135 times. I’ve saved around $19,000 since 1991 when I first discovered this program. We’ve stayed at great B&Bs in Virginia, Tenn., Calif, Wash., Ore., Maine, Ohio, so many places. We take all our vacations and trips with the Free Night Certificate. We always travel this way!!“
Most inngoers will tell you that once you stay at a bed and breakfast or country inn, you’ll want at least two days to truly wind down and enjoy all the special comforts and amenities which make the B&B experience so delightful. With the Free Night certificate, you can truly pamper yourself on a budget, with up to $650 in potential annual savings at the cost of only $24.95 for the guidebook and certificate.
Mark Burke of Cambridge, Massachusetts ordered eight books this year. “We’ve been using these books for a long time – the free night helps us a lot. We first started when we drove around looking for colleges for our kids. It gave us a great opportunity to really see our country in ways we would not have if we stayed at hotels and motels. It’s a lot of fun. You have some wonderful properties. We also give them as gifts and everyone is thrilled.”
With the economy forcing many to travel within their own states or in nearby regions, a Bed & Breakfast stay gives you that special unique and romantic vacation without the big expense.
“Not only is this book good because of the free night certificate, but it’s a great reference. In fact, it’s the best bed and breakfast guide out and I’ve seen a lot of them,” says avid traveler Max Bailey, “I recommend the book to everyone. Although the certificate is something we always use, 99% of the time we simply use the guidebook as our reference book for reliable bed and breakfasts.”
Each participating innkeeper specifies in the guidebook which dates and times of the year they will honor the Free Night certificate, many do so year-round.
Rhonda Bergeron, President/Owner of E*magine Public Relations uses the book and the certificate so often, she purchases several copies. “I love the free night stay rewards program….My friends and I have all found that if you call ahead, the innkeepers will honor the free night stay if they have availability even if it falls outside of the published available dates. It is a great way to see some very high end inns at an affordable rate and makes your book a must-own-at-least-two-copies book!“
If you have friends who have never experienced a bed and breakfast or inn, this is a great present for them, especially for weddings, birthdays and anniversaries.
“We love our B&B books so much that we’ve given one for Christmas, one as a hostess gift and kept one for our own getaway,” says Barbara Mathews of Castle Rock, Colorado.
Indeed, in a tight economy, this could be the most welcome gift of all.
