We have stayed in a few bed and breakfast inns over the years and have had very postive experiences. It is a fun and pleasant way to travel. The innkeepers are usually very warm and accommodating and the prices are not too bad either. Some offer meals some do not.
Several years back, we rented two inns on Edgewood Avenue in downtown Atlanta. It just so happened to be spring which is great for bed and breakfast travel. It was also the Inman Park Festival Weekend which was a tradition of ours for years. My brother-in-law lived across the street from the inns which made for a perfect weekend.
We took over both inns completely with our big family. We strolled to my brother-in-laws home for evening meals which was very convenient. Saturday mid-morning found us sipping on Bloody Marys and Mimosas, while we enjoyed front row seating as the most “unique” parade made its way down Edgewood right in front of the house. I have many fond memories of our Inman Park Festival Weekends and this was just one.
If you are planning to travel any time soon you may want to Save up to $100 with BedandBreakfast.com. Check out The Lodge on Apple Pie Ridge in Alto, Georgia. The lodge and scenary are breathtaking. One commenter posted “They serve a “made from scratch” breakfast and all the meals are all delicious.” — But it sounds like from all the comments that Max and Judy are the best part of the deal as they are such gracious hosts.
It is a good idea to check out the comments and reviews on the inn before you make your reservation. Links are usually provided.
Now is the perfect time to experience Bed and Breakfast travel with the change of seasons just around the corner!

We LOVE staying in Bed & Breakfasts. For us, not only are the bed & breakfasts oftentimes cheaper than the hotel option, we love getting to know the innkeeper and learning about local history, places to eat, and sites to see. For me, it’s also about supporting the small business owner, rather than the international corporation. Even on short trips, it’s worth it to find a B&B in the area.
