Need an escape? Place to put up guests and visitors? An intimate retreat from city stress?
The Sesquicentennial B&B Tour, scheduled Saturday, September 13, offers getaway seekers a preview of ten Mason area lodgings. The tour, sponsored by the Mason County Chamber of Commerce, will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., plenty of time to see each of the unique, historical B&B’s and guest houses. For this first annual tour, the Chamber selected six charming places in the Historic District of Mason close to the Courthouse square, two traditional lodgings very near downtown, and two historic B&B’s in the nearby countryside within a few minutes drive.
Tickets include access to any or all of the participating B&B’s. Touring guests will be eligible to win restaurant gift certificates, discounts on overnight stays, and special gift items. Start your tour at any of the B&B locations or pickup presale tickets with maps at the Chamber Visitor Center on the north side of the square.
