As summer starts to wind down, we can take comfort in the fact that there are still plenty of opportunities for adventure at an inn. The sky’s the limit at some, while it’s a smooth sail of discovery at others. Enjoying an excursion catered to everyone’s taste isn’t easy, but whether you’re seeking exhilaration or relaxation, there will always be a B&B that fits the bill. Here are a few unique packages that will definitely pique the interest of those who love the great outdoors.
Dive into Discovery at The Inn At Cape Cod
Have a whale of a time at The Inn At Cape Cod in Yarmouth Port, MA. With their Tale of the Whale Trail special, guests can enjoy a 4-night/3-day voyage of discovery including viewing whales up close in their natural habitat on a 4-hour excursion with expert commentary from Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises. They will also visit the historic Nantucket Whaling Museum, which is included along with roundtrip tickets on Steamship Authority’s fast ferry to Nantucket, plus dinner for two at Mattakeese Wharf Waterfront Restaurant. Visitors who purchase this special will rest well knowing that for every package sold, a $25 donation will be made to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).
Elevate Your Experience at The Bottger Mansion of Old Town
Albuquerque, NM is known as the hot air ballooning capital of the world, so it would only make sense for high-flying enthusiasts to take advantage of the Hot Air Balloon Ride Package from Bottger Mansion of Old Town, located within the historic Old Town district of Albuquerque. Rainbow Ryders will be their guide as they drift over the Rio Grande River Valley with the majestic Sandia Mountains as their background. Visitors can either get “hands on” with crew members and help inflate the balloon or sit back, relax and take pictures. This package includes a 2-night stay at the inn, a hot air balloon ride for two via Rainbow Ryders, a complimentary passenger pick-up/drop-off shuttle, continental breakfast, a flight certificate and a balloon ornament.

Situated in Hocking Hills on a 140-acre estate in Rockbridge, OH, Glenlaurel A Scottish Inn & Cottages offers three private hiking trails that feature rock cliffs, the scenic and private Camusfearna Gorge, and numerous waterfalls.
