SEPT 18 B&B Open House attracted many visitors…
The public was invited to have a “B&B Experience” on Sunday, September 18, 2016. Over twenty licensed B&B’s around the province of Manitoba participated in this event, which was held in conjunction with Manitoba Open Farm Day.
Bed and Breakfasts across the province tend to be unique experiences, ranging from century-old heritage homes, to working sheep farms, to urban art galleries, to Mongolian yurts, to artist retreats and health spas.
“Public was invited to drop by, look around our premises and talk with one of our operators about what it would be like to stay in a B&B”, says Susan Proven, President of the Association and owner of the Fairmount B&B in western Manitoba.
“We know from our guests over the years, that some people may not have a true understanding of what it is like to stay in a B&B”, said Proven. “We also know that people want to be assured that their accommodations will be clean and safe. All of our B&Bs meet the highest standards for safety and quality and this is assured through our rigorous third party inspections process.”
Sunday’s Open House Day drew a steady flow of traffic throughout the afternoon, according to several local Interlake B&B’s that participated in the event.
Laurel Sarginson, owner of Evergreen Gate B&B in Selkirk commented that she had approximately 25 visitors come through during the course of the afternoon. “Some of our guests said that they had walked by or cycled by many times, and had always wondered what Evergreen Gate was like inside?…They appreciated the opportunity to visit, and were very positive about the design, decor and warm welcome!”
The Bed and Breakfast Association of Manitoba invites everyone to discover the highly personalized, unique experiences that B&B’s have to offer. You’re likely to discover aspects of culture, history and Manitoba life that you’d never glimpse from a generic hotel room.
