The Bed and Breakfast experience has existed for hundreds of years. Country travelers found a place to clean up, fill their bellies and get some rest before making their way slowly down the road. The elite have always known the pleasures of a holiday, to restore their health and spirit. It wasn’t until the Middle Class emerged after World War II that Americans took a vacation as we know it today. The war had opened a lot of soldiers’ eyes to traveling the world and American travelers to Europe fell in love with the cozy, friendly and affordable Bed & Breakfasts.
