What makes a B&B a Better Way to Stay?

B&B's – The Better Way to Stay

There are many reasons this statement is true but I am going to touch on one of them today. Innkeepers! Yes, innkeepers make it the better way to stay. I'm not just tooting my own horn here! As I mentioned in my last blog, I was recently visited by 4 experienced innkeepers and it was having this group of ladies here, each sharing information and items from their own town or region that got me thinking. 

We innkeepers spend a lot of our time promoting more than our own B&B's. We share a wealth of knowledge about our areas on any given day. Innkeeper Kathleen Panek of Gillum House was a walking, talking billboard for Shinnston WV while she was here and Shellie Leete of Claiborne House in Rocky Mount VA not only blogs about the Crooked Road but is a blogger for the VA State Parks. Jane McDowell of McDowell-Mearing House in Munice IN shared some wonderful wine made there, yes wine in IN, who would have thought! And Carol Wibbenmeyer of Lodge at Mark Twain Lake near Hannibal Missouri, well Mark Twain left his mark deeply embedded there but the real reason to visit the Lodge is Carol – she is a hoot!

We provide our current guests, as well as those reading our websites, a vast amount of information to make their trip more enjoyable. Whether it is the small town charms or less known local attractions in the big city, innkeepers are your source of that information.  We share this info with smiles on our faces, no blank stares like you may get at the hotel front desk!  We love where we live and we want to share it with the world. Come visit us, ask questions and we will be happy to assist you.

 B&B's are a better way to stay, so while visiting Southeastern Louisiana, stay at Woodridge Bed and Breakfast - play hard, sleep well! Debbi & Tim Keepers of the Inn and Concierge to your perfect getaway!

Innspiried by the Innspiring Road Trip Innmates


 
Woodridge B&B recently had the pleasure of being one of 11 bed and breakfasts being toured by Innspiring Road Trips which consisted of 4 experienced innkeepers. While having never met in person, we all have been members of an innkeepers group that is associated with InnRewards.com. It was wonderful to finally meet and share laughs in person. The 4 innkeepers were: Kathleen Panek of Gillum House Bed and Breakfast in Shinnston West Virginia, Shellie Leete of Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast in Rocky Mount Virginia, Jane Muncie of McDowell-Nearing House Bed and Breakfast in Muncie Indiana and Carol Wibbenmeyer of Lodge at Mark Twain Lake near Hannibal Missouri.

InnRewards is a reletively new website which is a grassroots effort to reward those great B&B guests we have had the pleasure of hosting in our bed and breakfasts. For more information about this great site, visit the website... check out all the inns from around the world that offer something extra for their guests. (FYI: Woodridge B&B has an offer as well)

During their stay I noted some reasons why B&B's ARE a better way to stay. Stay tuned as I will share some of those reasons in later posts..............
