Savor Thanksgiving at a Charming B&B
Looking forward to gathering with family and friends around a table for a Thanksgiving feast of turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin cheesecake and other delicious dishes? Every year, we come together to say thanks, express appreciation for our good fortunes and, of course, eat. It’s a wonderful tradition.
For those hosting the dinner, it usually means days of planning and hours of cooking once the holiday arrives and time spent cleaning up as it leaves; not a small task by any means. So, this year why not break with tradition and let someone else do all the work? A Thanksgiving getaway to a B&B will give you a chance not only to enjoy activities such as boat rides along the bay, sipping wine by the fire or relaxing on the inn’s porch with a good book, but also a feast that was prepared by others and served to you.
The Platinum Pebble—West Harwich, MA
How about making this Thanksgiving getaway a family affair? The innkeepers at this West Harwich bed and breakfast are offering the entire inn for a large-scale celebration from November 23 through the 26. There are eight rooms to choose from, and everyone will receive a delicious breakfast delivered to their door each morning.
Cabernet Inn—North Conway, NH
Maybe you’re hoping for a more intimate Thanksgiving with your beloved this year. Located in the White Mountain’s of New Hampshire, the inn will create a romantic Thanksgiving rendezvous complete with a champagne toast when you arrive and a candlelit dinner just for two. You can spend the rest of the evening cozying up by your in-room fireplace followed by a soothing bubble bath in the two-person Jacuzzi tub.
If you’re favorite part about the Thanksgiving holiday is enjoying the leftovers the next day, this B&B has you covered! The day after gathering at the table for their multi-course Thanksgiving dinner of traditional favorites and new recipes, the inn will make the leftovers available for you to enjoy at the inn or on the go.
Do you have a creative eye or just enjoy decorating for the holidays? The innkeepers at the Bross Hotel Bed & Breakfast are giving you a chance to roll up your sleeves and get to the work of ringing in the holidays with them! After savoring a delectable turkey dinner complete with all the trimmings on Thanksgiving Day, you can assist the innkeepers with dressing up the inn with garland, ribbons, bows and lights.
Fairbanks House—Amelia Island, FL
Thanksgiving Day will start off with a special holiday breakfast followed by a narrated boat tour of Amelia and Cumberland Islands. Later on, you’ll gather with other guests for a wine toast at the inn before heading to the Ritz Carlton for an exquisite, gourmet Thanksgiving feast. You can stay in your pajamas and fuzzy slippers the next morning and join other island residents in their sleepwear for the annual Centre Street Merchants Friday morning pajama party. Discounts at local shops are available. If you decide to stay through Saturday night, you can revel in the Fernandina holiday celebration and tree lighting.
This year let someone else take care of the Thanksgiving cooking and cleaning. Then, you’ll get to focus on the most important task: figuring out what to pack for your getaway!
