Travel Gift Ideas for Mom

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Mother’s Day is May 8 and have we got some great gift ideas themed around the things Mom loves best, like travel and flowers and fine wine. For travel, how about a Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast gift certificate, her “get out of town free” card good at any of our nearly 200 member inns. She could choose one that doesn’t allow children (just saying Mom needs a break too). Or, if she loves flowers, one with stunning outdoor gardens. If she enjoys fine wine, she could reserve a suite at an inn that serves wine and cheese in the evening. And you thought Mom couldn’t love you any more than she already does!

It Is Stress Awareness Month, So Get Thee to a Wisconsin B&B

Monday, April 11th, 2011

You know how some vacations can be stressful? Often is has to do with the hassle of air travel, too many unforeseen expenses and lack of hospitality. The owners of Wisconsin B&Bs really do pride themselves on making getaways carefree and relaxing. So, in honor of April being Stress Awareness Month, why not give a B&B a go. If you’re already a B&B fan, try a new property. If you and your girlfriends are new to B&B travel, check into a B&B that offers spa services. If golf is your form of relaxation (although we know it can be stressful for some!), think about pairing a day on the course with a night at a B&B. Do something good for yourself and your health – take a B&B vacation.

Added Freebies Trump Gas Prices Any Day at Wisconsin B&Bs

Monday, April 11th, 2011

A fill-up these days is getting pricey, but not enough to keep B&B travelers at home. That’s because the added freebies that come standard at Wisconsin B&Bs far outweigh the few extra dollars going into the tank. Take, for example, free parking, a complimentary gourmet breakfast, bottomless cup of coffee, evening treats (think wine and cheese and baked goodies), free wi-fi and free movies, to say nothing of the great views and spacious accommodations. If that’s not enough of a deal, then browse the specials and packages listed on this site. Maybe it is time to take to the road after all!
