Several local bed and breakfasts offer Vets Day discounts

This from the AP: As of Tuesday morning, nearly 400 independently owned inns, including several in Washington, had signed on to offer free rooms Nov. 10, the night before Veterans Day. Most of the establishments are small: The average size of a bed-and-breakfast in the U.S. is five or six rooms, according to an industry group. Some participants can spare just a single room, while The Colonial Inn in Smithville, N.J., is offering 20 of its 24.

A valid military or Veterans Administration ID is required for each reservation.

For a complete list of all the participating inns in our state, click here.
