Bed & Breakfast World
What is a Bed & Breakfast?
Bed and breakfasts have a long way back in history but the term itself has been forged in the UK after World War II. At that time numerous foreigners needed a place to stay and local people have opened their homes and started serving breakfast to those overnight guests. Hence, a bed and breakfast is accommodation offered in someone's private home. The proprietor may live on premises or nearby. Breakfast is usually home made and sumptuous, usually served in the dining room, the bedroom or at a patio in the private garden of the house. The majority of B&Bs offer a private or en-suite (in the room) bathroom. Privacy and sociability are equally available depending on the preferences of the guest.

It is important to know that bed and breakfasts match other types of lodging in terms of cleanliness and comfort, most go even beyond average standards. At the same time the home-like atmosphere, warm atmosphere, and personal pampering are compared to none. Moreover, the B&B hosts are always a good source for detailed local knowledge and great help for planning a trip. Guests generally communicate directly with the owner which allows them to make prior arrangements for special requirements.

It is very difficult to put a strict label to bed and breakfasts and they do not come different only in the basics. Location, architecture, interior decoration, facilities and services - all these features of a B&B vary in large amounts depending on location, standards, and people running the place. Bed and breakfasts are to be found in townhouses, country houses, farms, cottages, villas, lodges, country inns, historic homes, castles, cabins, carriage houses, boats, mansions, ranches, apartments, everyday homes. The list can go on endlessly. But it is the variety that makes staying in B&B so exciting, romantic, and thrilling.
