A Better Way to Start the Day


A Better Way to Start the Day

A single guest room over a first floor bakery makes for a unique B&B. The owners of BREAD & BED both worked as editors for travel magazines, so they know travel. Also, they share a love for bread. “Baking can be hard, but it’s also interesting. Every day the temperature and humidity change the way the yeast ferments.” One of the owners says. The concept of fresh-baked bread and an overnight stay sings through the redbrick, kiln-like building. Bookings for the guest room come in regularly, lending credence to the overwhelming charm of waking to the aroma of fresh bread wafting into the bedroom. Eating fresh bread is one of life’s little pleasures.
