Seniors, Some of America’s Best B&Bs

When my wife and I travel in the US, we seek out B&Bs.  The experiences we encounter are aways unique.  The folks who own and operate the B&Bs are interesting as is the history of how they became owners and why they love their work. If you happen by any of the B&Bs below, do seek them out as each is well-known and quite famous. Enjoy your stay.  jeb
