One recent survey found that 8 out of 10 travelers said they wanted to try staying at a bed and breakfast in the upcoming year. What is it about staying at a bed and breakfast that’s so appealing, you ask? Why stay at a Louisiana bed and breakfast instead of at a typical hotel?
Well, there are a number of things a bed and breakfast offers that you just can’t get at the typical hotel.
• Romantic setting—Most bed and breakfasts are extremely cozy and comfortable. There’s just something about the surroundings that feels romantic. That’s why so many couples host their weddings at Bocage Plantation, and it’s also why we have so many people staying here on their honeymoons. Big hotels simply can’t match the romantic ambiance of a nice bed and breakfast.
• History all around you—Bocage Plantation (and some other B&Bs) is a registered historic treasure that was built back in 1837. The place is simply oozing with history, so staying here is almost like taking a trip back in time (without sacrificing today’s most desirable amenities).
• Unique experience—Let’s be honest, most average hotels are all pretty much the same. They look the same, feel the same. They all just blend together. Staying at a Louisiana bed and breakfast is different. It’s an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
• Full breakfast included—Staying at a bed and breakfast means you get, you guessed it, a full breakfast in the morning. For a full breakfast at most hotels, you’ll have to pay a pretty penny, or you could enjoy their complementary, stale pastries (eww!). At Bocage Plantation, a full, delicious breakfast is included with your room rate.
There are many reasons travelers are choosing bed and breakfast lodging over staying at a hotel. What’s your reason?
