Tennis Terms Applied to Wisconsin B&Bs

Friday, September 7th, 2012

The U.S. Tennis Open has just wrapped for another year, which inspired this week’s blog post – the Wisconsin B&B version of common tennis terms.

Love: Score is zero.  B&B version: Love is always in the air at romantic inns like Lazy Cloud B&B in Lake Geneva.

Tie-break: Determines who wins the set.  B&B version: If the tie-break on deciding which B&B you’ll visit is based on extras, consider amenity-laden properties like Dobranoc Inn B&B in Fond du Lac.

Ace: Serve that receiver can’t touch. B&B version: Ace the holiday gift list with a gift certificate from the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association – it’s good at over 150 inns.

Advantage: Game point. B&B version: The advantage of staying at a B&B is often the bed, like the super comfy featherbeds at Ferg Haus Inn of Ferg’s Bavarian Village in Manawa, and the breakfast, like the full gourmet a.m. meal at Inn On Maplein Sister Bay.

Overrule: Chair umpire overrules a call made by a line judge as to whether the ball was in or out. B&B version: Overrule your spouse’s inclination to stay home and instead opt for a staycation at an inn near you, with this handy search-by-city function at your fingertips.
