One of the biggest travel trends is “celebration vacations.” So, what’s on your calendar that’s celebration-worthy? Finishing up that graduate degree, renewing your wedding vows, a birthday you’d rather not celebrate with a surprise party, a big promotion that’s going to require you be refreshed and ready to roll? No need to turn the celebration into a chore. Just book a B&B and off you go. It’s that easy, giving you another reason to celebrate.

Calling all amateur and not-so-amateur Audubons – the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association has just launched a birding map that is as complete as they come. Ours has 300 birding sites, grouped by city and with corresponding close-by B&Bs also noted. Pack your binoculars for you next B&B getaway. You won’t be disappointed.
We just received word from Midwest Living Magazine that four of our member B&Bs are included in their list of the region’s 30 Best Bed & Breakfast Destinations. The magazine’s writers spent more than a year researching B&Bs, staying at inns all over the Midwest. The inns were secretly graded on decor, the owner’s approach to hospitality, quality of the room amenities with private baths a requirement, quality and presentation of the homemade breakfast, and general atmosphere. So, in the words of Midwest Living writers, we congratulate these inns who represent the best of the best in B&B travel:
McCormick House Inn in Hayward, WI – At this 1887 Victorian, patrons enjoy pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets, preprogrammed iPods, and English-style gardens.
Old Rittenhouse Inn in Bayfield, WI – Stately Queen Anne architecture meets modern amenities at this Inn which overlooks Lake Superior.
Inn at Cedar Crossing in Sturgeon Bay, WI – An on-site bakery churns out locally famous morning buns.
Honeybee Inn Bed and Breakfast in Horicon, WI – Guests of this Victorian come to relax on four-poster feather beds.
