Will we have our own bathroom?

By

Question: Will we have our own bathroom?
Answer: Probably, but definitely ask in advance. There are three basic bathroom options at bed and breakfasts:
  • Private, en suite. You have your own bathroom, and it's located in such a way that you can enter it from your room or suite. This is the option my husband and I strongly prefer.

  • Private, not en suite. You have your own bathroom, but you have to leave your room to access it. (e.g., It may be across the hall from your room.) Note that some inns list a "private bathroom" in a room description but make it less clear that it's not en suite. It never hurts to confirm this if it's important to you.

  • Shared. Your bathroom is also used by other guests at the B&B. It may be located in such a way that two guest rooms can both access it en suite, or it may not be en suite for either guest room.
