With “The Walking Dead” back to life in full force on the small screen, it got us thinking about the best ways to reenergize and revitalize during the long dark days of winter. Not that this season equates to a zombie apocalypse mind you, but the bitter cold can leave you feeling pretty lifeless. Heading to the home state of where the hit TV show takes place is one great way to escape, especially since the B&B’s there offer plenty of R&R. If you’re feeling lackluster, these inns will definitely restore your body and soul as they help you take a bite out of Jack Frost’s fury.
