Choosing the right inn

It's hard to make up rules about inns, because it's their individuality that makes them special. In general, we look for inns that are:

  1. Owner-operated: No one gives better advice about the area or can deal with problems quicker than a resident owner/innkeeper.
  2. Value: Whether you're paying $100 a night or $500, you want to feel like you're getting your money's worth.
  3. Distinctiveness: Unlike motel chains which advertise "no surprises" the best B&Bs are a delicious balance of the personal warmth of the innkeepers, the style and comfort of their inn, and the appeal of the setting itself.
  4. Appropriateness: If you want a romantic getaway, don't select an inn which caters to families; if it's a family vacation, make sure kids are welcomed with age-appropriate facilities and activities.
  5. Personal style: Call innkeepers and check out their Web sites to see if their style and yours are a good fit. If Victorian-style decor makes you twitch, look for a place that's clutter-free.
