Leaf Pepping Bed and Breakfast Style

September 26th, 2011 by Mariah

Autumn is in the air. How can you tell? Besides looking at the calendar, there are a few telltale signs: The days are warm while the nights get cool, and apples, pears and pumpkins reach full ripeness. And then there’s the fall foliage. The leaves do their annual dance transforming from deep, luscious greens to spectacular reds, yellows, golds and oranges. It’s a once-a-year event that brings onlookers from all corners of the world, sometimes with photo books in hand, to view this breathtaking display.

Fall harvests, brisk air, cuddling under a warm blanket on an outdoor porch swing or snuggling in front of a fire exude the essence of fall. Quintessential B&Bs are the perfect match for just such an experience.

Mountain Laurel Inn Bed and Breakfast in Mentone, AL, provides guests with a handbook of glorious views and exhilarating hikes through Lookout Mountain upon arrival. The innkeepers also provide water bottles and mugs, branded by Mountain Laurel, and a picnic lunch for two to take on your trip.

If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, why not admire the colorful canopy from above? The HideAway Country Inn in Bucyrus, OH, will take you up, up and away on a balloon ride over Ohio farm country and provide you with a complimentary bottle of champagne to enjoy. Perhaps you’d prefer to soar rather than scale the heights

Normally, by this time of year accommodations are completely booked, but the recent bad weather across the country has caused some to delay making plans. There are still opportunities for those who want to snatch up prize rooms that may still be available.

When you arrive make sure to check in with the innkeepers as soon as possible. They are always ready to offer tips and advice on the best places to see the foliage and how to get there.
