BedandBreakfast.com has listed Hummelstown’s The Inn at Westwynd Farm to its Top 10 U.S. Bed & Breakfast list.

“It’s a true honor to be chosen for the Top 10 U.S. B&B’s award, and we are thrilled that our hard work and that our staff has set us apart,” says Carolyn Troxell, innkeeper.

BedandBreakfast.com, an international B&B reservation website, began honoring 10 B&Bs each November across the country. Finalists were chosen based on an analysis of traveler reviews, and winners were selected by guest judges including Michael Franco, travel writer for TravelMag; Stirling Kelso, freelance travel writer, Travel + Leisure; Carol Morse, features editor, SmarterTravel; and Laura Motta, director of publishing, Shermans Travel.

“These award-winning inns like The Inn at Westwynd Farm really showcase bed-and-breakfasts and inns that often become a destination to discover and not just a place to stay, says Matt Laessig, general manager, BedandBreakfast.com. “Travelers select bed-and-breakfasts because they enjoy staying in a one-of-a-kind place that offers not only character, special amenities and unmatched hospitality, but also enables them to discover new experiences.”

The Inn at Westwynd Farm is located on an equestrian farm that allows guests to watch horses roam through the pastures. Amenities include antiques, fireplaces, Jacuzzis and more. Other inns on the list include the Inn at Harbor Hill Marina in Niantic, Conn., and The Provincetown Hotel at Gabriel’s in Provincetown, Mass.

Last November, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced a comprehensive $450 million “Bring Back Tourism, Bring Back Jobs” recovery package to support New York’s hard-hit tourism sector. Part of that package is a $25 million “Meet in New York” grant program that focuses on venues and events that generate and support business-related travel. “This holistic approach to visitation recognizes the spending habits of business and convention travelers for overnight stays, food, and activities,” the governor’s press office noted.

 

After having closed its doors in November 2019 for an extensive renovation, The Pridwin Hotel & Cottages on Shelter Island, New York, is accepting reservations beginning July 15. The 49-room luxury property, which dates to 1927, will be reopening under the ownership of a collaboration between Cape Resorts, a hospitality investment and management company specializing in adaptive reuse and historical preservation of resort properties, and the Petry family, who has owned and operated the resort since 1961.
