Thanksgiving allows us to take a step back, appreciate friends and family and spend a little time being grateful for the things in life that really matter. We also get to gather around the table for a Thanksgiving feast of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green beans, pecan pie and more. But, if you’re the one in charge of preparing the meal, you may spend days planning the menu and hours cooking it up just right along with taking care of the clean up after the last morsel has been savored.
So, this year instead of spending Thanksgiving Day working away in the kitchen, why not let someone else wear the apron? A Thanksgiving getaway to a B&B will give you a chance not only to enjoy activities such as sipping Pinot Noir by the fire, cruising along the bay at sunset, or relaxing on the inn’s generous porch with a good book, but also a dinner that was prepared by others and served to you.
