B&Bs for Vets 2015
This Veteran’s Day we have reserved all five of our guest rooms for active or retired military and their spouses as part of this year’s B&Bs for Vets program. The Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association (ABBA) is proud to participate in this nation-wide gesture to thank service members and their families for their sacrifice. A Bed of Roses Rooms, as well as all ABBA member inns, are offering free rooms to veterans and their spouses on Tuesday November 11th. You can also add your name to a waiting list once all of the donated rooms have been filled. A Bed of Roses will be giving priority to those veterans who are new to the program. Please call us at (828) 258-8700 to book. Guests are required to abide by all of our inn policies including our cancellation policies, so although we will not be charging Veterans for their rooms we do require a credit card on file in case of last minute cancellations or no shows. This ensures that another Veteran will be able to make use of the donated room if you are not able to. Please join us for a special day in Asheville in honor of your service.
