B&Bs For Vets and Honoring Our Military

veterans-dayEach year we participate in the B&Bs For Vets program. It’s a group of B&Bs/Inns across the country that donate free nights on the evening of November 10th so that the Veterans – active duty, reserves and retired – can wake up and celebrate Veterans Day with a great breakfast in their honor. My husband Michael proudly served in the Marines for 8 years and is so committed to supporting the Troops that we will be doing this as long as the program lasts. Like last year, our four rooms filled up lightening fast.

We had so many calls last year from those who missed out or were on duty or couldn’t get a weeknight off, that we decided that we’d give all Veterans the ability to stay with us anytime they wanted the first couple weeks of November and pay for one night and get their second night free. We figured that we’d get a few takers but the response was overwhelming and it was awesome having so many Veterans stay with us during that two week period. And the gratitude that they showed to us for putting this special together was incredible. Especially the active duty guys who maybe can’t afford to stay here for two nights in a beautiful jacuzzi room given their pay rate.

So this year we decided to extend the period a week longer – from October 23rd to November 13th. So if you know a Veteran who wants to escape to New Hampshire’s White Mountains and enjoy the comradery of Marine Innkeeper Michael and other Veterans visiting us, tell them they can go online to our website and see what’s still available. Semper Fi and God Bless our Troops!
