What Makes a Bed and Breakfast Different?

What is a B&B?

Wikipedia defines a Bed & Breakfast as this:  "A bed and breakfast is a small lodging establishment that offers overnight accommodation and breakfast. Bed and breakfasts are often private family homes and typically have between four and eleven rooms, with six being the average."

How is this different from a hotel or motel?

We live here. This is our home we share with our kids, our pets, as well as our guests. We also have other jobs outside from running the B&B.  We only have 4 guest rooms. We don't have separate front desk clerks, chefs, housekeeping, room service, or valets. It's just us!

How does this affect me as a guest?

We plan and prepare personally for every guest. We shop, clean and juggle to try to welcome and accommodate our guests needs. We strive make your stay as personal, relaxing, and enjoyable as possible, and are available to help with questions about the local activities and events, serving as a local concierge of sorts. 

We do ask that guests communicate much more closely with us in regards to dietary needs, allergies, late/early arrivals/departures, etc. as well as understand and respect our guidelines, boundaries and hours of operation.

The Greaton Suite


This west-facing main floor suite is our flagship suite. With lots of privacy, but easy access to the parlor, front porch and dining room, it is a dream come true. It comes with a king sized Mansion Bed with luxury linens atop a memory foam mattress, an antique down and feather filled daybed in the bay window for snuggling, reading, or watching your 49" TV, a  71" hammered copper double slipper tub for 2 with a shower option, a gas fireplace with comfy chairs and an expandable table for in-room dining. This suite has an adjoining powder room.  This is the only suite where breakfast is available for in-suite service. This is the only room able to accomodate service animals.

Note:  If using the daybed for a 3rd guest in this suite, it is best for those under 5'1", as it is a shorter antique daybed.

The Add-on Room


 The upper level suites also have the option for an add-on room, for those guests who may be traveling with more than 2 in their group, perfect for older children, girlfriend's weekend, grandma, etc. The add-on room is adjacent to the Simonton Suite on the upper level, and contains a twin sized daybed, with a roll-out twin trundle, TV and small closet. It is available for an additional fee, and cannot be rented individually, as it does not have bathroom facilities on it's own. It would share those facilities with the main "parent" suite.
