What makes staying at a B&B so special? This blog series will give you 10 good reasons why B&Bs in Michigan are special destination lodgings you need to experience. We’ll give you one good reason one per post, so plan to come back often.

Breakfast is included in your stay.

Breakfast at a B&B isn’t an add on for which you pay an extra fee. Nope: breakfast is part of the package, both a convenience and a cost savings. A few B&Bs limit their menus to continental spreads, but most offer a multi-course gourmet meal, hot and fresh from the kitchen every morning.

Michigan B&Bs don’t just serve up a mean muffin: they fresh bake their breakfast breads every day. Each batch is designed to delight their overnight guests, who enjoy their first meal of the day “on the house” as part of their stay. Their stay also includes complimentary sodas and assorted beverages, coffees and teas and “bottomless” cookie jars. Sometimes, the innkeeper whips together a delectable evening dessert and offers a glass of wine. Try getting this at a chain motel.
