Kim’s note: From time to time I accept guests posts from great small businesses. Below is a guest post by Patti, owner of Abigail’s B & B in Ashland, Oregon. Enter to win a one-night stay at Abigail’s B & B and two tickets to a local wine tasting. See below for details. 

The Personal Side of Lodging

Checking into a bed and breakfast is synonymous with visiting Ashland, OR as there are approximately 40+ Bed & Breakfast inns located in and around Ashland.  Many repeat visitors to Ashland have their favorite inn at which to stay and some visitors switch between two or three favorites rotating through their annual visits.

Abigail’s B &B in Ashland, Oregon- a favorite B & B in Ashland

Never stayed at a B&B?  No worries. Gone are the days of the inn and guest rooms looking (and feeling) like a page out of great-grandma’s scrapbook.  Many of today’s B&B’s offer complimentary WiFi, flat screen televisions, a computer desk for guest use and many other upgraded amenities such as individually climate-controlled rooms with luxurious bedding and private bathrooms.  And you won’t find a vending machine at a B&B!  Instead you’ll most often find something homemade and deliciously yummy offered to you in the afternoon with a cup of tea or other beverage of your choice.

Remember, it’s called a Bed & Breakfast for a reason.  Aside from the comfort of the rooms there is the breakfast and innkeepers pride themselves on their breakfast service, quite often offering a 2-course gourmet meal.  Are you allergic to peanuts or you’re a vegetarian?  Just let the innkeeper know at the time of booking your room and they’re more than willing to accommodate food allergies and/or dietary restrictions.  It’s all about the personal side of lodging!

Hospitality rules at Abigail’s B & B

If all of this sounds great, but you’re a little on the shy side, or you’re looking for some quiet time, no worries there either.  A good innkeeper is in tune with his/her guests and they know within a few moments of meeting which guests want to engage in conversation and a bit of witty repartee, and who’s comfortable with just a good-morning smile.

What makes a Bed & Breakfast experience special is the level of personal service, the historical significance of the home, the unique charm of the guest suites and of course, the breakfast!  Guests linger long after breakfast chatting and laughing with each other, having just met an hour earlier. The feeling of comfort and safety in a home away from home is what the personal side of lodging is all about. When a guest leaves a B&B there are often kind words of gratitude, the exchange of addresses between guests and the exchange of big hugs with the innkeeper and a “See you next year!”  When was the last time you hugged the desk clerk at your favorite hotel?

A beautiful summer day at Abigail’s B & B in Ashland, Oregon

Liked them both! I’ve been telling my husband for a couple of years that I need to take him to Ashland, so this would be perfect. I haven’t been since I was in high school!
