Getting away for a quiet weekend or short break is very popular. Many couples like to try a quaint Ann Arbor bed and breakfast. The rooms are comfortable, the food home cooked and the prices are very reasonable. Much of the attraction of staying in this type of accommodation is that it gives a very personalized welcome to each and every guest.

Many people chose to stay at a local B and B as they know they will get plenty of local information. This is useful for finding the best restaurant to eat dinner, the nearest bank, or things to do nearby. It can make all the difference to their stay if the hosts makes some good suggestions about who has the freshest seafood in town.

The idea of the bed and breakfast grew out of hundreds of years of hospitality. Strangers travelling the quiet roads would stop at a nearby farm or village and ask for a bed for the night. This informal system worked for years and the traveller would be sent on their way next morning with a hearty breakfast. It has not been until recent years that the idea of providing rooms and a breakfast took on a commercial aspect.

Breakfasts are a big affair, with lots of home cooked foods. There are typically several options, ranging from a light toast and cereals start to the day all the way to a huge platter of bacon, eggs, sausage and pancakes. Lots of freshly brewed coffee and tea will also be available along with freshly squeezed juices and home made muffins. The breakfasts really are special and it is clear that many owners look to spoil and pamper their guests.

Studies have shown that many people choose to stay at a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel because they are specifically looking for more personalized service. A big chain hotel may have comparable prices but the atmosphere is very impersonal. Guests know that their room is just like everyone else's. Staying in a quaint old inn or historic house is really something special.

The internet has also changed the way most people do business. Owners can now have their own website and post pictures of the rooms. This is a very helpful tool that allows the guests to see exactly where they will be staying. Most people also give out prices, availability and lots of other helpful information.

This is also the time to ask questions such as things to do and see in the area. Anyone with special dietary needs such as a gluten or dairy free diet should also mention this ahead of time to give the hosts time to prepare. Some B and B's also have rooms for those with disabilities who need wheel chair accessibility.

Booking a short get away at an Ann Arbor bed and breakfast is the perfect way to unwind. The service is outstanding and the rooms are delightful. Crisp fresh linens and thick fluffy towels are provided which can really make the stay that much more inviting.
