Learn2 Find a Good Bed and Breakfast
(3 steps)


The hosts with the most


Travelers agree that bed and breakfasts are the coziest places to stay on a vacation. The idea of a bed and breakfast (literally an inn or private home offering sleeping accommodations and a breakfast the next morning) reached a new level of popularity in the 1980s. Now there are bed and breakfasts throughout the world.

Your hosts, who own and live where you're staying, know the local history and the best spots to visit. You'll find that staying with them seems like staying with family friends. We'll help you decide what you want in the bed and breakfast of your dreams--and show you how to find it.

Before you begin

If you decide to try a bed and breakfast on your next vacation, begin your search early. The bed and breakfast of your choice is more likely to have openings available if you call far in advance. You may also need to keep your time frame flexible, in order to stay at the place you want.

Allow a little time for the research as well. Besides doing the necessary homework, you may find that just reading about bed and breakfasts is a delightful way to spend an evening or afternoon. Plus, the more you educate yourself, the better luck you'll have finding the right place.
