Free Stay For Military on Veterans Day

July 17th, 2010 by Mariah

B&Bs and Inns are providing free rooms on Wednesday, November 10, in observance of Veterans Day, November 11, to honor servicemen and women currently serving or who have previously served their country. Properties that are participating in the program are listed here. The program was started in 2009 by the West Virginia B&B Association (formerly called MABB) and this year has expanded to include over 30 states, a Canadian province and more than 150 Inns.

Reservations need to be made directly with the participating Inns and B&Bs. “We just wanted to say thank you to the courageous men and women from our armed forces”, says Kathleen Panek, owner of the Gillum House in Shinnston, WV. “These are some trying times for anyone serving or who has served and a good night’s rest is our way to say, thank you.” A valid Military or VA ID will be required for each reservation. For more information contact Kathleen at 304-592-0177 or via email at gillum@GillumHouse.com

Each B&B is making at least one room available on the night of Wednesday, November 10 (only) to active and retired military personnel. Availability is limited, so Inns may not have a specific room listed for the promotion and once the available rooms are booked, the B&B may not be able to provide another free room.

Innkeepers who would like to participate in the program can sign up here.
