B&Bs for Veterans

Here’s some great news from the website:

“Innkeepers want to say thank you to those who’ve served their country by inviting veterans to wake up on 11-11-11 in a B&B. Inns and B&Bs throughout North America will open their doors to active and retired military and vets and one guest by offering a free room to those who’ve served in the military on Thursday, November 10, 2011.  While hundreds of inns and B&Bs have signed on to provide rooms, they will be reserved quickly, so review the list below from innkeepers in the U.S. and reserve your room while space is available.

From the entire B&B industry, thank you to all those who are presently serving or have served to protect our freedom.”

Instructions for Vets:

  • Vets – please contact the inns and B&Bs directly to reserve your room.
  • Rooms are complimentary for Thursday, November 10, 2011 for vets and one guest; most rooms accommodate two guests only.
  • Proof of veteran status may be requested.


Vets – please note no fees will be charged for a reserved one-night veteran’s stay but a credit card may be required to book your stay. Credit card or cash may be accepted for add-ons and additional nights. While policies vary from inn to inn, the full rate may be charged if the complimentary room night is not occupied or not canceled in a timely manner according to the inn’s standard reservation practices or cancellation period set for this special event. Please be considerate if your plans change; most inns will have a waiting list for their complimentary rooms, and a proper cancellation will always be filled with a fellow deserving vet.
