For a memorable stay that is as unique as the area, try staying at a smaller space like a Bed & Breakfast. Generally these will include a warm breakfast with the owner and other guests, and the service will be much more personalized that a visit to a chain hotel. Some places also offer complimentary hors d’oeurves in the evening.

Pro Tip: be sure to mention any dietary restrictions when booking to give the hosts enough time to accomodate your requests.
