That's not to say that we dislike children. On the contrary, we do like kids.....just not as guests in our small, yet intimate, B&B. With only having three guest rooms, we feel as if children of any age could negatively affect the B&B experience others are trying to achieve, especially one that's meant to be a romantic time away from their own children.
55+ magazine did a piece in this month's issue on just this topic -- a getaway for just the two of you. (Free publication at your neighborhood store.) They found there weren't many options in the Finger Lakes where B&B's specified "adults only", which the author found quite interesting.....almost surprising. Yet, that is the case. So, if you are insistent that you don't want to share a breakfast table with a 12-year old, or hear any child-like chatter or behavior from the next guest room, be sure to look at policies closely before booking. It doesn't matter if you're 55 or 25, if you want a B&B for adults only (or contrastingly, if you want a B&B that does accept kids), be sure to know what you are signing up for.....before you arrive.
Happy travels to all.....
