One great option when travelling, is staying at a Bed and Breakfast, often called a B & B, where one is a guest in the home of the owners.
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.
Eloise and Ray Hagerman were great hosts and we found them to be warm and hospitable, and they welcomed us into their home, where we enjoyed a comfortable room.
Our breakfast the following morning was a home-cooked delight, lots of hot food, coffee and tea!
The Serendip Bed & Breakfast is in a quiet location, just minutes from the centre of St Marys.
There is a full or continental breakfast available for guest in their four guest bedrooms.
This is a non-smoking establishment.

Close to where we live is another B & B that we are eager to try - the beautiful Our Log Home Bed & Breakfast on the Moraviantown reserve.
Your hosts, Eunice and Rienus Ryk, extend their hospitality to you in their comfortable log home.
Their Bed & Breakfast is ideal for those looking for a quiet, romantic get-away!
