If you keep finding yourself in a regular hotel, resort or even short-term rental, when booking a weekend getaway, then you should consider a different way to lodge this summer in Colorado… in a B&B hotel, also known as Bed & Breakfast Hotel.
Experiencing a B&B is reminiscent of the past, where you get to feel like you are home away from home (without the burden of cooking and cleaning yourself) and it’s more cost-effective (since the breakfast is included in the price of the room).
Since we recommended lately many new Colorado towns and cities to visit (check out “9 Things to do in Colorado this Spring” & “11 Things to do Outdoors in Colorado this Summer you shouldn’t Miss”), and if you’ve already experienced our recommendations for “Glamping” (check out “9 Best Glamping Vacations in Colorado”), then it’s time to know all about the Best B&B Hotels in (nearly) every city in Colorado!
