Bed and Breakfast or Hotel…What’s the Difference?

Obviously, here at Grape Arbor we are biased, but, putting that aside, let’s talk about why we do things the way we do!

A Bed and Breakfast stay is the much better value

While the actual rates are remarkably similar, your hotel is not throwing in a homemade breakfast.  Hotel continental breakfasts tend to be sad.  Each B and B is different and each has its own personality but the homemade breakfast is always a star in the offerings.  At Grape Arbor we offer a four course gourmet breakfast that is/will be one of the best breakfasts you’ve had in your life.  Imagine waking up to the smell of fresh rolls baking and bacon sizzling, then heading to the dining room for fresh ground coffee or tea, Apple Cranberry Cake and Moravian Love Buns still warm from the oven, your choice of juice, Vanilla Roasted Pears, and your choice of Breakfast Frittata or Scratch Made Buttermilk Pancakes with local, 100% pure maple syrup and a side of bacon!

Customer vs. Guest

It’s nice enough to be a customer I suppose.  But wouldn’t you rather be a treasured guest?  You are a guest at a B and B and not a customer.  That difference is apparent and communicated in countless different ways.

Hotels can’t and don’t offer the personalized service that your B and B Innkeepers love to extend.  Have you ever gone to the front desk and asked the hotel clerk where to have dinner?  At best, they hand you a pre-printed list.  We ask “what kind of food are you looking for?” and “how far do you want to drive?”

From complimentary items like beverages and homemade cookies, to help planning your perfect getaway, to special add-ons like In Room Massage Services or the Grape Arbor VIP Wine Country Package that is loaded with additional goodies and value, the personalized service is with your Innkeeper.

Peggy Hauser, Grape Arbor InnkeeperWhy not be a guest in the HOME of the person who knows the most about your destination and will happily share that information with you?  Lots of Innkeepers have been residents of their areas for long, long times and the new comers have made it their very business to know.  In the Grape Arbor B and B area, no one knows more about Lake Erie Wine Country than Peggy Hauser and she is eager to share.

Love the freebies!

Typically, parking, WIFI, and concierge service are free at Bed and Breakfast Inns.  They certainly are at Grape Arbor.   There are no outrageous mini bar charges, either.  Bottled water and sodas are complimentary and so are homemade cookies including the legendary Grape Arbor Chocolate Chip cookies.

Ahhhh, the relaxation…

Guestroom with brass headboard and comfortable green bedding.No hotel can offer the comfort and feel of a Bed and Breakfast.  Each and every B and B has its own personality. The Grape Arbor property consists of two Historic Victorian mansions.  Each room and suite here is gracefully appointed and decorated, yet comfy and cozy.  Want a king sized bed?  Jacuzzi?  Fireplace?  We have ’em!

A Bed and Breakfast vacation/getaway is in every way a getaway well spent.  So make your reservation and look forward to the care and attention that you richly deserve!    If you go online to make your reservations, go to the B and B’s website directly or call them directly for the best rates and best personalized service.
