presentation of select, distinctly historic lodging accommodations,
including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges worldwide.
Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably
significant to world history with respect to their architecture,
engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location,
design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.
Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer

They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to
connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging,
excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.
Sadly, countless historically significant structures
have been (and continue to be) lost forever.
Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the
vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising
proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort
and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities
reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
