Bed and Breakfast's, while once on the decline, are steadily growing in popularity.
It's a niche market, and difficult to enjoy if your hosts suck. I once stayed at a B&B outside London where every morning the owners would go on racist rants at the breakfast table. But if these kind of accommodations are done right, they can be a worthwhile once in a lifetime experience. If you're looking to be showered with a special kind of hospitality, look no further, here are the best B&B's in America.
With rooms as low as $150 a night, the Beltane ranch offers a private cottage alongside 1,300 acres of protected land. The ranch serves eggs and beef from their very own hens and cows raised on the ranch. Not to mention they make fresh olive oil. With views this good, this B&B could make anyone feel at home.
The husband-and-wife team of Jensen and Grace Lorenzen took a 19th-century home that once belonged to the town's founder, and turned it into the magical inn you see above. Jensen is an amazingly talented chef, with dishes ranging from Buttermilk-brined Riconda Dairy chicken with chanterelle mushrooms, to a fresh market yam puree.
Want to stay somewhere a little more boujee and Victorian? With crystal chandeliers, stained glass windows, antiques, and fancy breakfasts like blueberry strata, the Amelia Island Williams House is definitely worth the trip.
With a sprawling 19 rooms across two mansions, this Savannah property is southern hospitality at its finest. Breakfasts include freshly made biscuits with sausage gravy and homemade waffles with parmesan and fresh herbs. The rooms are a little on the pricier side ($199 a night), but completely worth every penny.
Located in the beautiful French Quarter, Soniat House is lush and green. All three townhouses are Grammable goodness, and the quality of the goods are on par with the scenery. Breakfast is fabulous and boujee, with dishes like buttermilk biscuits with homemade strawberry jam. All of it arrives on a literal silver platter.
