Why Stay At a Bed and Breakfast?

Posted on: March 23rd, 2011 by Ray Deleo

Why stay at a Bed and Breakfast?

The real answer is simple, because everyone is different. Each Bed and Breakfast is a different and the personal expression of the owner/innkeeper’s commitment to the dedication of sharing of their home and property is the last and greatest form of hospitality.

When someone calls and they say they only need a place to sleep, I refer them to one of the many motels and hotels in the area. I will ask questions like: “Have you ever stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before?, do you want to stay in a place, like the Atlantic Birches Inn that will add great memories of your get-a-away?” Want to know where to eat, and not where to eat, where to hike, where to shop, what to see, how to get there? Innkeepers are active members of their communities amd surrounding area, and are up to date with the activities and events around them. Old Orchard Beach ME.  is a  small  Beach Community that we are actively involved in here. “Where should we go to dinner for our anniversary?” We’ll give you a different answer to the question than the manager of one of the local motels or hotels would.  How can we send you someplace without knowing what you would like to eat.  As Innkeepers, we have meet people from all over the world. From our repeat guests to the first time guests, we want everyone to have a comfortable and relaxing stay at the Atlantic Birches Inn a Southern Maine Bed and Breakfast.  Maybe you will find our home has become your “home away from home.” Come visit us, our door is always open.

When calling a B&B, you should ask the following questions:

Do the guest’s rooms have private baths?
What type of breakfast is served? (Full or Continental)
Is smoking allowed?
Is there on-site parking?
Are pets on the property or do you accept pets if you have allergies to cats or dogs?
Is there free Wi-Fi available?
Are you a member of the local Chamber of Commerce or State Lodging Association?

A Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful part of your get-a-way and is definitely a Better Way To Stay. Every room is different; you won’t find a “cookie-cutter” bunch of rooms. Years ago, people were worried about the cleanliness and décor of the rooms. The B&B as an institution has become the first line of hospitality. You can see the rooms and read reviews written by other guests. 

Heidi and I welcome our guests, show them around and then they are on their own. We might not see them till breakfast, or we may see them when they come into the dining room for tea or coffee. We live in the main house on the first floor. We are always available if anyone needs anything or has a question. Your Innkeepers Ray & Heidi
