Bed and Breakfast Offers a
Unique Lodging Experience




Bed and Breakfast is also known as B&B. The custom to opening home to travelers dates back the earliest day of Colonial America. Lodging establishments were few and far between in the 1700s, and apart from a limited number of coaching inns, wayfarers relied on the kindness of strangers to provide a bed for the night.

The interest in B&Bs coincided with an increasing interest in historic preservation, spurred by the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976 and assisted by two crucial pieces of legislation: the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, and the Tax Reform Act of 1976. Most offers accommodation and breakfast, but usually does not offer other meals. Typically, bed and breakfasts are private homes with less than 10 bedrooms available for commercial use. Breakfast is served in the bedroom, a dining room, or the host's kitchen.

They are found in all states, in major cities and remote rural areas, occupying everything from modest cottages to opulent mansions, and in restored structures from schools to cabooses to churches.

In Louisiana, many are Country Inns that have expanded to offer services, business conference facilities. Some of the homes have wedding packages and meeting spaces as well. It is not uncommon now to find free wireless Internet access.

If you are planning a trip to investigate your ideal place to retire in Louisiana, consider visiting a bed and breakfast, they can be found in each Regions. Staying overnight in one of these treasured landmarks is an experience of a lifetime.
