When it comes to experiencing the joys of life, up to 60% of millennials report a preference for one-in-a-lifetime experiences over material things. It’s understandable why. A watch or cell phone can only work for so long, but the experiences you have during your weekend getaways will last forever.
But how can you guarantee that you’ll get the experience of a lifetime on your weekend getaways when there’s already so much to do? Odds are you want to experience your vacation feeling like a local and less like a tourist.
Fortunately, there’s a way you can experience living like a local at your vacation destination while also having an incredible experience — by spending your weekend getaways at a bed and breakfast.
Why a bed and breakfast makes for an incredible experience
Odds are when you think of a romantic vacation you think of luxury cabins in the Alps, romantic hotels in Illinois, weekend cabin rentals, or nature weekend getaways. However, a bed and breakfast can offer you far more than your average hotel.
A hotel can often feel stale and unflattering with a lot of white. (Why is there always so much white?). Bed and breakfasts on the other hand give you the sensation of being at home, which can make you more comfortable and set up the romantic mood.
Bed and breakfasts also make you feel more cared for because you’re one of the few guests in the home. That means you won’t have to chew on a bagel in the morning from a heartless continental breakfast. Instead, you can enjoy homemade food fresh from the host’s kitchen and fresh from the stove.
At a bed and breakfast, you’re treated as a guest and not a customer so you can feel extra special while you’re on vacation. Something else that can make you feel special, though, is the amount of money you don’t have to pay in order to receive that special treatment.
In a hotel, you have to pay for the following:
- Bottled water
At a bed and breakfast, these amenities are (typically) free as they’re apart of the price you’re paying to stay there in the first place. So not only do you get to bask in the joy of a romantic vacation away from the kids, but you don’t have to break the bank in order to experience it.
