American Historic Inns, with  the nation’s best rated Bed and Breakfast Web site, iLoveInns.com and leading  publisher of Bed and Breakfast guidebooks collaborates with Inns and Bed and Breakfasts around the country to offer a Getaway Weekend package that makes the perfect corporate or employee gift.
 
Long-advertised as a perfect and easy gift solution, iLoveInns Bed and Breakfast gift certificates are simple to use and just in time for the holiday season.
 
What better way to thank an extraordinary client, reward an exemplary employee, or appreciate a hard-working boss than with the gift of relaxation? Imagine the appreciation and memories that will come with a Bed and Breakfast gift certificate. One or two nights all-paid at a cozy regional inn will be appreciated by all and create a general feeling of goodwill and generosity throughout the company. The best part is that the recipient of the gift chooses his or her favorite vacation destination retreat, whether it be an oceanside villa or a mountaintop chalet.
 
How does it work? Log onto http://www.iloveinns.com/giftcert/ and select the amount of the gift certificate.  Add a personal comment and print the elegantly designed certificate. It’s that easy to make a memorable customized gift. You may also choose to have the certificate sent directly by iloveinns.com.
 
The certificates can be used at any participating inns throughout the United States. There are no expiration or blackout dates. To make the gift even more distinctive, you can add the 410-page Bed & Breakfast Guidebook which includes a buy-one-night-get-one-free-night coupon. 
 
For example, if you have a company located in the San Francisco Bay area and you want to reward employees or give Holiday gifts that would cover a complete B&B night’s stay, you can choose certificates in denominations of $250 per night, and that should cover staying at any number of very fine inns. The unique travel experiences you provide within getaway drive time can include inns in Monterey, Napa, or Mendocino among many others.
 
SAMPLE INNS
Here’s an example of participating inns within 130 miles of San Francisco:

Pleasure Point Inn
Located in front of the popular Pleasure Point Surfing Beach, this oceanfront estate is completely remodeled. The modern Mediterranean-style architecture and design has an upscale appearance. Guest rooms all feature gas fireplaces, custom furniture, private patios and entrances. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the sea from the large roof top deck overlooking Monterey Bay.  
 
Inn at Seventeen Mile Drive
The only challenging part of a visit to this 1920s craftsman-style house is figuring out where the deep blue sea ends and clear skies begin. Located in the heart of the Monterey Peninsula, this two-story, three-building inn offers sea or garden views from the main house, while you will find rustic ambiance, surrounded by oak and redwood trees, in the cottage and redwood chalet rooms.
 
 
Beazley House
Nestled in green lawns and gardens, this graceful shingled mansion is frosted with white trim on its bays and balustrades. Stained-glass windows and polished-wood floors set the atmosphere in the parlor. There are five rooms in the main house, and the carriage house features five more, all with fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. The venerable Beazley House was Napa's first bed & breakfast inn.
 
 

Agate Cove Inn
Perched on a bluff top above the Pacific Ocean in Mendocino, Agate Cove Inn offers splendid ocean views in a two-acre setting of gardens and 100-year-old cypress trees. Most rooms boast stunning ocean views or garden vistas and have fireplaces and decks. Fine dining, hiking, art walks and other activities may be arranged with the help of the inn's knowledgeable staff.
