Honoring our Veterans This Veteran’s Day – B&Bs for Vets 2017
In honor of Veteran’s Day, we at A Bed of Roses are offering free rooms to active and retired US military personnel and their spouses on November 12th, 2017.
We are proud to join the Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association (ABBA) and the B&Bs for Vets program in this gesture of thanks to veterans for their service and sacrifice. B&Bs across the nation have been giving away rooms free-of-charge to veterans since 2008. It has been an enriching experience for all of us. The full amenities of the inn will be available, including a plated 2-course gourmet breakfast served at 9AM.
Once all rooms have been booked we will be glad to refer you to another Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association inn with openings. All of our member inns have the highest standards and we inspect each other’s B&Bs to ensure it, so even if we are full that day you will find a welcoming high quality inn to stay in. Once all of the openings in ABBA have been filled we will make sure you get on the ABBA wait list. We do occasionally get cancellations so it is definitely worthwhile to put your name on the list!
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 we do require that the room be reserved with a credit card. We want to ensure that another Veteran will be able to make use of the donated room if you are not able to.
Thank you for your service.
