Two or three times a year, my husband and I like to get away for a weekend. While we usually stay in hotels, we instead stayed in a bed and breakfast kind of place for the first time earlier this year, and we couldn’t believe what a nice change it was from our usual getaways. That weekend was just a little more relaxing, as we were away from the hustle and bustle of the typical big hotels.
After that weekend away, we decided that we want to try these quaint and intimate inns and cottages more often. So when ILoveInns.com wanted to join in our Dads Rock fun, I was excited to see what they offer. In addition to a great website that offers reviews on bed and breakfasts, ILoveInns.com also has a Bed & Breakfast and Country Inns guide that shares over a thousand places across the country. The book sells for $24.95, but along with each book comes a coupon for a free night at participating inns when you buy another night at regular price. What a great deal if you were planning a trip!
Maybe a dad on your Father’s Day list could use a getaway. If a Bed & Breakfast seems like something he would like, then the I Love Inns guidebook could be a fun- and practical- gift. He could read through the book and pick the inn he wants to visit, then you could use the Buy one, get one certificate to save a bundle off your stay. If you were going to stay for two nights anyway, the book would totally pay for itself and more once you use the certificate. You can find participating free night inns, and any certificate restrictions, on ILoveInns.com.
