Bed and Breakfast Research
April 13, 2014
Earl and I have been contemplating starting a bed and breakfast for a long time. Before 2000 we began staying at different B + Bs whenever we went on vacation or for a weekend of relaxation.
Last weekend we traveled to Bloomsburg, PA and stayed at The Inn at Turkey Hill which has been in business since 1984 and now has 23 rooms. It is lovely and we enjoyed our stay very much. Their sunny breakfast room is pictured above.
As much fun as we have had staying at different inns, this has also been an important part of our research. We know what features we liked, and others not so much. And this should translate into good food, excellent recommendations and enjoyable and restful surroundings for our guests.
Here is a list of some of the roughly 30 bed and breakfast inns we have tried:
Victoria Anns, Jim Thorpe, PA (no longer open)
Settlers Inn at Bingham Park, Hawley, PA
Olde Square Inn, Mount Joy, PA
The Cameron Estate, Mount Joy, PA
