Vacation-worthy Bed and Breakfast Inns With Great Views
Who doesn’t appreciate a beautiful view? Here in New York City, it’s hard to come by a great view in a private setting. New Yorkers often find themselves gazing out their windows in a daydream state, only to wake up to the realization that they are staring at a brick wall, or worse, straight into the eyes of a stranger in the building across the way!
It’s not just city-dwellers that find themselves needing to escape – suburban and rural residents can also benefit from a fresh perspective. Wherever you live, if you’re in search of a getaway with a spectacular view, look no further. The BnBFinder team has put together a list of some of our favorite B&B views, celebrating the rich geographical diversity of this wonderful land.
Mountain – Waynesboro, VA
The Iris Inn (www.bnbfinder.com/IrisInn) is perched on a 12-acre mountaintop with breathtaking views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley below. The inn offers modern, luxurious private cabins for the ultimate vantage point. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow the cabins to bathe in natural light – you’ve never seen sunsets like this. And as a bonus, 30 wineries are within a 30-minute drive of the inn.
Beach – New Smyrna Beach, FL
The waterfront Black Dolphin Inn (www.bnbfinder.com/BlackDolphinInn) is a Spanish Isle-inspired historic estate on the shores of the Indian River. The inn boasts 14 exquisite rooms and suites, most of which overlook the tranquil bay. Vintage furniture, European-inspired bedding, and spa baths are just a taste of the decadence found at the Black Dolphin. New Smyrna Beach has the longest stretch of public beach in the nation, and is conveniently located just an hour northeast of Orlando.
Country – Fossil, OR
Wilson Ranches Retreat Bed & Breakfast (www.bnbfinder.com/WilsonRanchesRetreat) offers pioneer hospitality on a 9,000-acre working cattle and hay ranch in the majestic Butte Creek Valley. Experience pure serenity as you marvel at the panoramic view known out West as a big-sky horizon. The abundant wildlife is sure to delight nature lovers – deer and quail are frequent visitors to the property, and a variety of songbirds migrate through the area.
Desert – Sedona, AZ
Sedona is famous for its red rocks – sandstone formations that contrast with the crystal-clear skies to create one of the world’s most dramatic landscapes. A Sunset Chateau (www.bnbfinder.com/SunsetChateau) is a boutique hotel in the heart of Sedona where guests can enjoy magnificent red rock views while playing tennis, swimming in the outdoor pool, or lounging in the Jacuzzi. For an authentic experience of Southwestern culture and style, this chateau is the perfect choice.
