What Kind of B&B Do You Have?

Different Types of B&B's

Just What is a Bed and Breakfast?

Your Bed and Breakfast is so much more than buildings and beds; it is often a place where your guests come to retreat from the harried pace of life, to recharge in a relaxed atmosphere or to rekindle a romantic relationship. And, perhaps, all of these.

B&B’s come in all sizes and flavors. From a renovated country home to a renovated castle, from Victorian Era to Minimalist Modern and everything in between. Let’s examine some of the typical types of Bed and Breakfasts.

Country Inn Bed and Breakfast

Country B&BA very familiar type of Bed and Breakfast is the Country Inn B&B. These are frequently converted larger country homes that were formerly residences. They are often run by the owners who may live on the premises. They will typically have no more than three to five rooms and these are often themed rooms. Breakfast is often included with the stay as well as other meals.

Themed Bed and Breakfast

Breakfast, and other meals if offered, may be delivered to the room or they will be served in a community dining area.  For a themed B&B, the dining experience usually reflects the theme of the B&B. In a Victorian B&B, expect a “Tea Time” or similar. Other common features of themed B&B’s may include features connecting guests with local events and tours, such as museums and historical sites.
