May 4- 12 is National Travel & Tourism Week

NCBBI Cookbook

NCBBI celebrates in a delicious way!

From our President, Debbie Vickery:
As a salute to travel and tourism in America, the first week in May is recognized as National Travel and Tourism Week. This is also the time when innkeepers across North Carolina celebrate North Carolina Bed and Breakfast Week. This year, North Carolina Bed & Breakfast and Inns (the state bed and breakfast association) invites everyone to indulge in a taste of North Carolina. Anyone purchasing one of our North Carolina Bed & Breakfast Cookbooks from May 1st to May 12th, will also receive a $25 Gift Certificate that can be used at any of our member inns.

Our cookbook represents the best of the best, in taste, flavor, appearance, and appeal. The recipes are tried and true and the most requested from our guests--from the most simple, elegant breakfast dishes to fabulous entrees for elaborate dinners. Our members also tell you a bit about their inns in this cookbook, just a tease at the potential of each, all served up with a hearty dollop of gracious southern hospitality.

So, indulge all of your senses, starting with a recipe from our cookbook and following up with a stay at one of our member inns.  Go to the North Carolina Bed & Breakfasts and Inns (NCBBI)   website - click here -    to place an order for this special offer—a $54.45 value that can be yours for only $29.45. Quantities are limited so place your order early. Offer expires May 12, 2013.

There are an estimated 17,000 inns in the US, over 350 of these are located in North Carolina—gorgeous accommodations in scenic, diverse and exciting locations throughout the state. These bed & breakfasts are as unique as the innkeepers who operate them. You can be assured that all of our member inns are inspection certified, promising the highest levels of hospitality, cleanliness, comfort, service, and value.
