Most bed and breakfasts are owned by the innkeepers, who usually live on the premises. It's natural to expect that innkeepers who live in their own inns will bring a different perspective to the job than someone who works a shift behind a hotel reception desk and then goes home and forgets about the customers left behind.
At good B&Bs, "customers" are truly guests, and it shows. Innkeepers will gladly help you find the best restaurant in town, point you to the most romantic spot in the nearby park, and much more.
Most bed and breakfasts generate a substantial portion of their income from repeat business. Many also depend on word-of-mouth recommendations. Combine those two factors and it's easy to see why most innkeepers go out of their way to make sure your stay provides some great memories.
This site is designed to help you find just what you're looking for. For starters, there are a list of Recommended Inns.
