Staying at a bed and breakfast like Huffman House B&B (located in downtown Minden, LA) can be quite different form staying in a hotel. In most bed and breakfasts you have direct contact with the owner. Most owners are driven to make sure you have a great stay in part because you’re paying them and in part because they take pride in their home as well as their city. Most bed and breakfast owners (at least the ones I’ve met) are out going, enjoy entertaining and have a wealth of knowledge about their community. I encourage you to slow down take the time to uncover the hidden treasures by have a talk with your next innkeeper. Yes, bed & breakfasts can be quite different but different can be a good thing.
