Inns, beds and breakfast, and boutique hotels across the country are encouraging people to stop and smell the roses – or at very least, flip through them. Nearly four dozen inns dotting the U.S. and beyond are showcasing the uniqueness of their gardens via a trio of interactive eBooks with beautiful floral imagery, garden videos, and discounts for road trippers
Forty-two inns have pulled together to create a set of eBooks that one can download for free inspiration, a virtual pick-me-up, or an in-person discount.
From a vegetable garden terrace overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains to landscaped waterfalls in the Midwest to grape-covered vines overlooking the Alps, the books cover a vast amount of terrain.
Arranged as a trio and dividing the participating inns into three regions, each book tells the story of the various gardens with hundreds of links to stunning visuals and steep discounts. The regions include Northeast region, Southern region, and West, Midwest & Abroad (Canada and Italy).

Like many businesses, the independent lodging industry has suffered unprecedented financial hardships due to COVID-19. Property owners have had to contend with the loss of income as well as the anxiousness over the loss of their home – since many B&B owners live on the premises too.
All of the participating properties are part of STILL INN BUSINESS, a preparedness campaign that launched this spring to help innkeepers stay visible in travel media and sustain industry optimism. The pro bono campaign has upward of 300 members.
