When my daughter was about 13 months old, we wanted to travel to Knoxville, TN to visit a friend of mine. This was the first vacation that we would be taking with our daughter. Before she was born, we enjoyed staying in Bed & Breakfasts rather than hotels. We had considered taking a trip to one of our favorite spots until we realized that none of the B&Bs in the entire city would allow children under 12.

We found a B&B in Knoxville that did not discriminate (yes, that is what I consider it) against children. The owner was so wonderful. He told us he would much rather have a fussy baby heard through the halls than a couple of teenagers being rowdy all night. He was happy to keep milk in the fridge for us and be sure there was nothing special she needed for breakfast.

Luckily his breakfast was a huge variety anyway and there were many things that she could have. He sat with us and another couple while we had breakfast both mornings and even played with my daughter at the table while we ate and talked with the other couple.

We had plenty of room for her travel crib in our room. We were able to put her in the crib and close our door and go across the hall to the sitting room to talk. We used our cell phones as make-shift baby monitors.

This is never something we would even consider doing at even the smallest of hotels. We would basically have to lay down and be quiet after she went to bed. Never would we leave her in our hotel room and go all the way to the lobby.

It was just a great experience. If you are ever in Tennessee, you should check out Sonny at the Maplehurst Inn B&B in Knoxville!
