When making your plans to visit Cumberland Valley, why should you choose a B&B? B&B’s offer you a unique opportunity to stay as a local while providing a comfortable night's sleep AND a scrumptious breakfast. Our Cumberland Valley B&Bs provide a tranquil escape and hometown hospitality that will make your weekend getaway memorable.
1. Style and Charm
At B&Bs in the Cumberland Valley, you’ll find a wide variety of settings and styles: old homes near world-class fly fishing streams, eco-inns, historic mansions on gorgeous estates, farmhouses in country settings, downtown inns that are within walking distance to restaurants, and more. With so many styles and locations, there will sure to be one that appeals to you.
Every inn is inspected and insured. This is important. Not everyone can make this claim. Many short-term rentals are unlicensed and not inspected or insured for overnight guests. When you book with them, you don’t know what you are getting. PABBI/CVBnB member inns adhere to our quality assurance program of cleanliness, food service, safety, and hospitality requirements, allowing you the peace of mind that your stay will meet the high standards your vacation deserves.
3. Good Value
As with any other lodging category, rates range between B&Bs. Cumberland Valley B&B innkeepers pride themselves on offering personal service and a good value for the price. When comparison shopping, don’t forget to factor in that breakfast is always included and the many complimentary amenities and perks of staying at a B&B.
4. Complimentary Perks
Speaking of perks, they are plentiful! Most are complimentary such as breakfast of course, but also, parking, wifi, robes, books and DVDs, a welcome glass of wine at check-in, snacks, coffee/tea bar, and more.
5. Unbelievable Breakfasts
Cumberland Valley B&Bs practically invented farm-to-table cuisine because they source locally for their signature recipes. Many owners are great home chefs in their own right and love perfecting and sharing recipes. Many cater to dietary restrictions and special diets. They love the challenge of coming up with new and unique creations to delight their guests!
Breakfast can be served in the dining room (and physically distanced for COVID considerations) where meeting new people is viewed as a perk. If you seek more privacy, just communicate your preference when making a reservation. Some inns have tables for two in their dining rooms, patios, or porches, or serve at different times according to your preferences. They even provide room service which offers the ultimate in privacy.
7. En Suite & Luxurious Bathrooms
Every inn has private baths. Many inns also offer luxury spa-like bathroom upgrades that include steam showers, whirlpool baths, and plush robes and slippers.
8. Personal Service
Personal service and attention to detail are standard for our B&Bs. Yet, our innkeepers know when their time is needed and when guests instead are seeking privacy.
9. Helpful Resource for Recommendations
B&B owners are actually honored when you think of them as your personal concierge. They are a great resource for boutique shopping suggestions, restaurant recommendations, winery tours, tickets to theatre performances, and directions to the best hiking and biking trails in the area. So ask away!
10. Great for Business Travelers
Cumberland Valley Bed & Breakfasts aren’t just for vacations. They are perfect for business travelers too. Many inns offer amenities that business travelers appreciate, such as breakfast at their choice of time with the option for a “breakfast to go,” regular overnight parcel pick-up and delivery, in-room desk, preferred rates for extended stays, and of course wifi. While we’re at it, we should also put in a plug for B&Bs that cater to families, those that accept pets, and those that host special events also like weddings.
