The Professional Association of Innkeepers International says $150 is the average daily rate for a bed and breakfast. So if you’ve been dreaming of a four-day weekend away at a historic country inn, you might be looking at a $600 bill.
But your vacation doesn’t have to be so expensive. We have a list of ways you can slash the cost of B&B stays.
In January everything just drops. People just don’t think of January as a getaway time, and pretty much everywhere you look in Northeast, if they are open in January, you will find a great deal.
To get the best deals, avoid peak travel times like spring break and major holidays.
Don’t forget to check the websites of bed and breakfasts. Some may not advertise their promotions on travel sites, and you might find a cheaper deal by booking directly.
Bed and breakfasts may offer discounts for other organizations too. Call the B&B you’re considering and ask if your association will score you a deal.
Also, look for other amenities or specials offered by the B&B. Some stays come with gift certificates to local establishments. However, don’t book just for amenities. Compare prices at several bed and breakfasts to make sure you’re getting a good deal.
