A great way to spend a relaxing few days away from home.

As my wife and I get older we are becoming less and less inclined to spend vacation time anywhere near a big city.  Rather, we prefer to follow the road less travelled and are generally looking for a place to simply stop and relax for a few days.  As such, we find the prospect of going to a bed and breakfast more and more appealing these days.  As a matter of fact, we intend to spend a long weekend at a B & B in New Hampshire in the next couple of weeks.  We really need a change of scenery right now.

While we have only managed to visit a few B & B's in the past we have thoroughly enjoyed our experiences.  After a hearty breakfast we usually search for a nearby hiking trail or perhaps play some tennis.  Around mid-afternoon we return to the B & B to take a cat nap or spend some quiet time immersed in a good book.  Along about 4:00 we head into town for some dinner and then maybe we will take in a movie.  Of course, there is always the option to return to the B & B to relax in the living room and get to know some of the other guests.  This may sound quite mundane to some and I understand that.  But at this point in our lives we would just like to take it easy when we do manage to get away.

In scouring the internet you will find find all manner of bed and breakfast options.  Certainly there are lots of these places in and around major cities.  There are B & B's near the shore, in the mountains, near vineyards and just about everywhere in between.  If you are someone who enjoys lots of amenities then there are certainly plenty of options for you.  Meanwhile, for folks like Molly and me who prefer simple pleasures there are beaucoup choices as well.  What is so neat about B & B's is that you can usually find a place that is perfectly tailored to your particular wants and needs. 

While I am rating the data point "Bed and Breakfast" a +4  I realize that the experience can vary dramatically from place to place.  My rating applies to the idea itself.  In the coming years I hope that my wife and I can partake of this experience much more frequently.  Meanwhile,  I anxiously await our trip to the Pleasant View Bed & Breakfast in Bristol, NH later this month.  We have been there before and enjoyed it immensely.  So if you are someone who has never been to a B & B before I urge you to give it a try.  I think you'll enjoy it.    Highly recommended!

I like the part about taking it easy....we've never stayed at a bed and breakfast, but have enjoyed the cozy comfort of a small hotel that serves food. The Homestead Suites in Santa Fe served a hot breakast and dinner as well...it reminded me of a bed and breakfast. I've heard both good and bad about the bed and breakfast....at some point we'll give it a try.
