Thinking about surprising the wife with a 2 or 3 night stay at a bed and breakfast. I have been looking in the Hot Springs, AR area and found a nice one with good reviews call the Wildwood 1884 which looks great.

I wanted to find out what other B&B's might be closer to the KC area that would be comparable. Not sure I really want to do an 8 hour driving trip right now so closer is better. Spa treatment would be a nice plus too.

We've got one here that I've heard is suposed to be good in the Museum Hill area but good luck finding much else to do unless you like history then it's a great place to visit.

Of course I could hook you up with free tickets to see our minor league baseball team The Blacksnakes.

Here's a link (http://www.museumhill.com/)

Thread Killer?!?!

That's my job! :)

Good luck Guru, but I think you'll probably have to go south buddy unless you're just looking for some R&R.

Several years ago we stayed at the School house B&B in Rocheport, Missouri. It was a nice quiet little town with several antique shops, and the Les Bourgeois Winery and Bistro atop the river bluff, offering an incredible view. As far as the drive if I remember correctly it was about 3 hours.

If it's a well run B&B, there's a significant difference between staying there or a hotel.

Eureka Springs, AR will blow Hot Springs out of the water as far as romantic weekend getaways, and it's also a lot closer. Get her a spa treatment at one of the spas as well. I can answer any questions you might have about the place.

I hear this is a nice place for a longer stay:

BTW, being a resident "down here" and having been to both, if Bob Dole were looking for a relaxing, romantic B&B weekend, he'd go to Jefferson, TX before he'd go to Hot Springs.

Gotta keep it close to home this time around. Too far south this time around but I will keep it in mind in the future.

B&B's are frequently cheaper than hotels and the service kicks the s**t out of hotels.

Just be careful, some of them have shared bathrooms. Not very romantic.

Yep, that is one of the first questions I plan on asking when I start calling them.

spent 4days in a b&b in norwalk, ct. a couple years ago. we were out there for my sons wedding and they treated us like royalty. free breakfast, free drinks at the bar, and when we wanted to go anywhere, they'd drive us in the limo. it was the easiest drunkin binge i've ever been on.

My former GF and I did a Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont trip a few years back. We only stayed in B&Bs for the 10 days. Much better than hotels. We never asked about private baths - I guess we just lucked out that we always had one.
