This has been a very popular type of overnight accommodation in Europe for many years, and is gaining popularity in North America.
Typically, guests would either call or email ahead to check to see that the B & B has room to accommodate their group for the night, but it is often also possible to just turn up and inquire about a room for the night.
The guests are then shown the room or rooms available and the cost of the rooms, which includes breakfast the following morning, and then decides whether they would like to stay or not.
My family and I have stayed in many over the years, but recently have stayed in a few that we have really enjoyed.
Cathy and Paul are great hosts and we found them to be warm and hospitable, and they welcomed us into their home, where we enjoyed a comfortable room, the swimming pool & hot tub, and loved petting their horses in the paddock.
Our breakfast the following morning was a home-cooked delight, lots of hot food, coffee and tea!
The River Ridge Bed & Breakfast is in a lovely location, just minutes from town.
This quaint Victorian home was cozy and welcoming and has three guest rooms available.
We were very comfortable there and enjoyed a delicious self-serve breakfast in the dining room - a variety of cereals and breads to toast, fresh seasonal fruits, then abundant coffee on the front porch - ahhh.... life is good!
The Angel's Nest is just a short walk from the beach and is a handy place to stay as it is close to shops and the pharmacy.
In the summer of 2009, Peter and Jennifer had a Grand Opening which I attended, and as we toured their lovely accommodation, I thought how charming everything was!
The bedrooms are beautiful, each room has its own en suite bathroom - I would happily recommend this B & B to anyone.
