24 Bed and Breakfast Inns Encourage Travelers to Stay Nearby During Holiday Season

Heron House Bed and Breakfast Inn

Twenty-four inns, beds and breakfast and boutique hotels across the 
country are banding together to encourage travelers to go it alone, fill their tanks, and seize the season.“If this year has taught us anything, it’s that happiness is a choice,” said Al Heminger, owner of the Huron House Bed and Breakfast and The Hotel Saugatuck, both in Michigan. “Now is the time to write your own story – and make it beautiful, because it certainly will be memorable.”


Across the U.S., as the pandemic continues to affect everyday life, small businesses, like the independent lodging industry, has felt the financial impact. This new promotion aims to forge a connection with regional travelers, offer a respite from being stuck at home, and provide a safe place where they can create a joyful impression of their holiday – using only one tank of gas, round trip. Every inn participating in the A Very Drivable Holiday campaign is offering a free gift to guests who check in between December 1-31st. These gifts include everything from complimentary glasses of wine with keepsake glasses, to homemade holiday cookies, kettle corn, honey, and bath bombs. Every morning, seasonal breakfasts will have an added holiday twist too. All properties will prominently feature holiday d├ęcor.


“Some of our guests don’t travel very far to visit. Last weekend, one couple drove just 15 minutes But the passing Amish buggies and our small town make it seem like a world away,” said Jan Garrabrandt, who runs The Artist’s Inn and Gallery in Terre Hill, Pennsylvania.


The inns all had watercolor paintings of their facades made, to showcase their storybook-like qualities and draw travelers into the general idea. To access images of all the inns on Dropbox, click here
