I travel a LOT, both for business and pleasure, but in all of my travels, I have never stayed in a B&B. My husband and I will be doing a road trip and plan to spend 2 nights in Page so we can have access to Glen Canyon dam, antelope canyon and a few other activities. I am reading the nice reviews about Dreamkatchers B&B, and see that they do have availability for the nightw we will be going thru there and is comparable (even cheaper) than some chain hotels or others in the area.
Obvisiously, I am somewhat naive about this whole concept and therefore have many 'pre-conceived' senarios about what staying in a B & B would be like. Could some of you who have stayed there (or other similiar ones) 'sell me' or 'sway me' on this place. Is the location good to the things I want to see, or would we be better off staying in Page?
Here are a few of my (foolish, I'm sure..) concerns...
Since a B&B is usually somone's home, I picture it like I am showing up a strangers place and staying in one of their bedrooms. Would we show up and knock on their front door and stand in their hallway while they 'register' and then have then show us to our room to put our bags down and then invite us to come sit in the living room with them while they tell us stories and look thru baby albums (yes..I am exaggerating here, but you get the idea!)
Next, I envision going to our room and having total strangers right in the next bedroom on the other side of the wall. Yes, I realize that is how motel rooms are, but a 'bedroom' house wall seems different than a motel room wall.
I see that the bathroom is private for each room at the DreamKatchers, so that shouldnt be an issue...no one accidently walking in, or coming in after my husband has been in there after a good dinner...right?
And lastly..can you come and go as you please? I mean, are you walking into their HOME thru their main enterance?? should you be back 'home' by say 8?
I feel foolish asking these questions..but have never seen them addressed. I am WANTING to try this experience, but just want my perceptions cleared. We are both social people and like to meet new people and talk, I just dont want to feel obligated to every time I come back to my room.
does any of that make sense....:)
