Grab your brackets and pencils because this month the NCAA teams are bringing the heat! This past weekend Selection Sunday officially kicked off March Madness casting the 64 teams in the final bracket. They’re going to pull out all the stops as they battle to reach the “Big Dance” at the NCAA Championship in New Orleans.

Like those teams, B&B’s from the four separate regions – East, Southwest, Midwest and Southeast – are laying it all on the line. From “mancations” filled with biking and brewery tours to pantries filled to the brim with game-watching snacks, they’re gearing up for a big season. Plus, you won’t miss any of the high-definition action since most B&Bs offer large, flat-screen TVs.


The Lady of the Lake, located in the heart of Skaneateles, NY, is offering up top-notch accommodations with a perfect place to relax while watching the East’s Syracuse Orangemen dribble their way around the competition. Relax as you “lay up” at this romantic Victorian inn with plush beds and claw-foot soaking tubs. Just like the West’s Michigan State Spartans, the Vitosha Guest Haus Inn, located in Ann Arbor, MI, knows how to create a custom play that will leave others in the dust including a trip into town after the buzzer for a brewery tour or warming up with a celebratory toast by your in-room fireplace after watching the game.

If you play as hard as the South’s Kentucky Wildcats, a little R&R may be the right play. The Inn at Woodhaven, located in Louisville, KY, has the perfect game plan that involves a therapeutic massage in the privacy of your own room. When you step out on the court again, you’ll be ready to make some big shots! Pull out all the stops, like the Midwest’s UNC Tarheels, when you arrive at The King’s Daughters Inn, located in Durham, NC. Their healthy, generous breakfast will get you full and focused for the day ahead including a ride into town courtesy of the inn’s complimentary bikes. Return and unwind in front of the TV while watching the game before pouring yourself a nightcap.

Like March Madness,  sometimes the road ahead is long and challenging. Why not build a winning strategy by staying at a B&B? You can combine an active stay with some R&R and not miss a single minute of the action. It’s a slam dunk!
