Two Select Registry® bed & breakfasts for sale, one in Arkansas and the other in Massachusetts, offer contrasts in style while demonstrating striking similarities.
In Stockbridge, Massachusetts (recall the James Taylor line, “…from Stockbridge to Boston”), The Inn at Stockbridge is a beautiful, historic 15 room bed and breakfast inn that offers its guests a variety of beautifully appointed guest rooms in three buildings. Enjoying a location that takes full advantage of the Berkshire Mountains, the original colonial style home on almost 12 acres was built in 1906 and boasts 7 guest rooms, spectacular common rooms with porches and terraces, and superb owner’s quarters. Two additional buildings, the “Barn” and the “Cottage House” each have 4 over-sized luxury rooms. Whimsical sculptures dot the yard and add a special uniqueness to each guest’s arrival.
At The Inn at Stockbridge, quality amenities and service, which are the hallmarks of Select Registry inns, are what make it very much like another B&B halfway across the country in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Hilltop Manor Bed & Breakfast has five guest rooms which, in their own way, couldn’t be more different from those at the Inn at Stockbridge. Owned by a young couple who have brought a contemporary flair to their 7,000+ square foot Craftsman style B&B built in 1890, Hilltop Manor offers 1,000 thread count sheets, large flat screen TV’s, and iPod docks in every room. Sitting on over 5 acres on the edge of Hot Springs and surrounded by National Forest, the B&B can tell the tale of famous Prohibition Era gangsters partying into the night and perhaps escaping into the woods during the frequent police raids. Creative packages provide each visitor the opportunity to customize their stay.
While both of these B&B’s are incredibly different, they share a lot in common. They are both members of Select Registry®; they are both upscale lodging establishments that offer their guests a high-end lodging experience; both cater to the needs of their guests in a very personalized way; both enjoy a country setting with convenient access to in-town amenities like restaurants, museums, and entertainment; both are very profitable businesses; and both are represented for sale by The B&B Team®.
Hilltop Manor Bed & Breakfast is available for $995,000, and The Inn at Stockbridge is offered for $2,750,000. Different? Yes. Great value? Double yes! It’s one of the reasons why we at The B&B Team® love what we do because we work with some of the best inns in the country!
