Hubby and I have never paid much attention to bed and breakfast options when traveling. We're usually on our way, in and out of a hotel, and we usually have the kids with us. But, this fall we celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary and decided to take a no-kids vacation. This meant we could pick a destination and stay a while.
