B&Bs FOR VETS
B&B’s offering Free Rooms for Vets
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.
For a complete list of Canadian inns and B&B’s participating in the B&Bs for Vets program, visit BBCanada.com’s B&Bs for Vets page and search by province. At this time there are over 495 B&B’s in the U.S. and 295 in Canada which are participating in this program.
St. Bernard Lodge is offering a free room on either November 10th or November 11th. Please call the lodge directly to make a reservation.
Lassen Volcanic National Park is offering fee free days November 11, 12 and 13.
From the entire B&B industry, thank you to all those who are presently serving or have served to protect our freedom.
