Friends and Bed and Breakfast Fun

One of my very favorite things to do is visit Bed and Breakfast Inns. I really think I might have been born in the wrong era. I love the Victorian ambiance, decorations and colors. I am happy when I am among a lot of friends and enjoying a scone and a cup of tea. The antiques and amenities are just a bonus for me. Although the stairs are getting harder to climb, once at the top, I feel like it is Christmas. Opening each bedroom to see who is going in that room is like opening a Christmas present to me! All of us B&B group just oooh and aaah at every little touch that the innkeepers have added. I am so crazy about B&B's that I actually became a certified Inn Keeper! My friends no longer asked me "what do you want to do for your birthday?" They know I want to visit another B&B. I have even talked my children into visiting one for their anniversary. My favorites are too numberious to list. I adore Mistletoe Bow in Alex City, Myrtlewood Inn in Aliceville, Gorham's Bluff, Pisga, Rose Inn, Fayette, and of course Columbiana Inn right here in Columbiana. The least favorite is in New Orleans and that was only because the Inn Keepers were terrible hostesses. Here are some pictures of the gang.

Hi Tricia! Thank you for visiting today and leaving such a sweet comment!
I too adore B & B's. I love what you said about opening a room like a Christmas present! How true! You just never know what to expect. I wish we could get to more of them.
