Bed and Breakfast Guide Review and Giveaway

***Giveaway closed–winners notified by email.***

Do you remember my Fantastic Father’s Day Find of the I LOVE INNS guide to “Bed & Breakfast and Country Inns?”Bed & Breakfasts and Country Inns

I really like this guide, because each copy contains a certificate, valid at any bed and breakfast listed in the guide, that can be redeemed for a free-night’s stay with purchase of the first night* – an offer that can help save hundreds of dollars on your next trip.

Hubs and I are finally going to go to the Beall Mansion in Alton, Illinois, for our anniversary.  Because of his travel schedule for work, we can only get away for a weekend.  So, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to stay close to home and will be using my certificate from the Bed & Breakfasts and Country Inns 22nd Edition to save on our weekend!

Beall MansionCirca 1903. An eclectic blend of Neoclassic, Georgian and Greek Revival styles, the mansion was designed as a wedding gift by world renown architect, Lucas Pfeiffenberger. Original woodwork, eleven and a half-foot ceilings, leaded-glass windows, pocket doors, crystal chandeliers and imported marble and bronze statuary reflect the era’s opulence. Elegantly appointed guest bedrooms are unique in size and decor. Each includes a private bath with shower and clawfoot tub or whirlpool for two, imported marble floor and chandelier. Voted “Illinois Best Bed & Breakfast” by Illinois Magazine’s Readers Poll.
