B&Bs for Vets on November 10

October 4th, 2010 by Mariah

In honor of Veterans Day, more than 300 bed and breakfasts in 40 states and provinces are providing free rooms the night of Wednesday, November 10, to servicemen and women currently serving or who have previously served their country. (Veterans Day is November 11.) The program, known as B&Bs for Vets, was started in 2008 by the West Virginia B&B Association. This year’s list of participating inns also indicates if the inn is full.



“We just wanted to say thank you to the courageous men and women from our armed forces,” Kathleen Panek, owner of the Gillum House in Shinnston, West Virginia, said in a press release. “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.”



Valid military or VA identificaation is required for each reservation. Each participating inn is making at least one room available on the night of Wednesday, November 10, to active and retired military personnel. Availability is limited, and reservations must be booked directly through the B&B.
