More than just Hotels. Staying at a bed and breakfast is the perfect choice of lodging when you need a relaxing escape.Many B&B's boast very interesting or unique history; you will be surprised to learn how many are in restored buildings that are hundreds of years old. In the U.S. South, for example, you will find many B&B's that were once plantation homes. Also, each of the rooms in a bed and breakfast has character. Since they are individually decorated, they each have their own feel.
