Bed and breakfast plantations are not as hard to find as you might think. There are areas in the South where the owners of dozens of incredible antebellum plantations survived hard times by taking in guests. Lucky for us, a new tradition was born. You will find that Southern hospitality and country charm make these bed and breakfasts an excellent choice for your getaway vacation.

Staying at a bed and breakfast plantation may be somewhat of a surprise for you and your family. Many of these fine old homes offer rooms and suites in the main structure. Some also offer the privacy of outbuildings that were part of the original plantation. The surprise is that the majority of these plantation gems also offer amenities such as cable television discreetly inserted into the ambiance of the past.

The Breakfast Part

Down home cookin' is a tradition at even the most elegant of Southern plantation homes. Often breakfast is a "family" affair served in a main dining room, with food selections arrayed on an antique sideboard. As the name says, breakfast is included with the package. You will be able to enjoy scrambled eggs, potato casserole, freshly baked biscuits, bacon, ham, and sausage, fresh fruit, fruit juices, and truly great coffee.

Some plantation bed and breakfasts also offer lunch and dinner menus as well. You may choose to dine in one of the local eateries. Some plantation cottages have small kitchens for families that want to have quiet family time at the plantation. Just remember that, in the South, good food is an honored tradition and that, whether part of your plantation package or in nearby towns, very special eateries abound.
