    I tried the B&B path years ago when on a week-long solo trip and found it very interesting. Some of the other guests at breakfast and I shared some really valuable insights that I needed to hear at the time about an issue that I was working on. It ended up having some significant impact a few years later.
    Some B&B's were stark and some were over the top lush in amenities. Most in Canada are pricey as IL mentions. Niagara-on-the-Lake has some beautiful buildings as B&B's. One day I will try one again there when I attend the Shaw Festival.

    I hate B&Bs. It feels like I owe the host my friendship. Or free therapy. I don't want to talk to strangers in a forced environment when I'm on vacation. Vacation is all about what I want. It's not about making pleasant small talk with strangers.

    What Tammy said. I like the anonymity of hotels, and if money is no object, cool little boutique hotels. In reality, the Holiday Inn works just fine!

    Several years ago I was very "taken" with the B&B idea. DH and I stayed in severeal different ones over a few short travels, as well as a few times with my 3 women friends when we would have a getaway. For the most part they were all good experiences, always different. But as I have gotten older, I prefer the anonymity of hotels as rosarugos said. I like just closing the door and shutting out the world and having peace and quiet.

    Well, as I mentioned in another thread, I'm going to CT--in just a few hours. I'm staying at an airBNB farm:

    Gee that looks fun! I love the pond. Take some bug repellant and enjoy the idyllic setting.

    Yeah, I read that about the bug repellant. I don't have any--I'll have to pick some up on the way.
