To find a bed and breakfast, the first step is to google the name of the town you’ll be staying in–if you’re a planner. Go to accommodation, and there should be a list of B&B’s–or if the town is small, like Sparwood, there’ll be only one or two listed.
If the B&B has a website, go there for information.
Trip Adviser is a great place to find reviews and visitor’s comments. Word of mouth is the very best advertising, and great reviews are gold for the B&B host.
Find a phone number for the B&B and call with any questions not covered on the web site.
Feel free to visit the B&B and ask to see the rooms before you make a commitment. People often do this at the Blue Collar, and I’m happy to show them what’s available. This is a great option if you’re more of a spur of the moment traveler. Also, ask exactly what’s included in the price–at the Blue Collar, you can have either a full breakfast from my printed menu, or an enormous packed lunch, a choice workmen or skiers often prefer.
