Celebrations Getaways Contest May 2017

Celebrations Getaways Contest in May 2017 features three member inns known for their superior amenities, gourmet cuisine, and stellar Southern hospitality.  Each month NCBBI features three member Inns, does three drawings, and provides the three winners gift certificates, whose values are $250, $150, and $100 – respectively first, second, and third prize awards. In May 2017, the FREE CELEBRATION GETAWAYS drawings are for stays at Big Mill Bed and Breakfast, Mast Farm Inn, and The Cedars Davidson.

These certificates may be used at the winner’s choice at any one of these three NCBBI member Inns featured this month. Winners can use their gift certificate towards their stay to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, or for any other occasion.

Each month’s sweepstakes starts on the first of the month (this month’s begins on May 1st), with drawings on the 21st of that same month. Gift certificates remain valid for use anytime within 12 months of their issue date.

From the mountains to the sea, North Carolina has it all: natural beauty, history, arts & crafts, music, restaurants, and wineries.  Guests at NCBBI member bed and breakfasts and inns can be assured of the highest standards in quality, safety, housekeeping, food service, comfort and hospitality.

Zinnias at Big Mill Bed and Breakfast

Featured in Our State Magazine as one of North Carolina’s best botanical B&Bs, Big Mill Bed and Breakfast has 200 acres to roam. You can walk through the landscaped gardens with gorgeous flowers like the zinnias pictured above, explore the original farm outbuildings, and wander through scenic woodlands. Shaded by stately, ninety-year-old pecan trees that were planted by the owner’s parents, this Williamston Bed and Breakfast is in the original farmstead that has been in the family since 1920.

Minutes from major highways, this is a perfect stopover to the Outer Banks. Big Mill Bed and Breakfast offers wireless internet, first floor rooms, and a private location with commanding lake views.  Big Mill hosts elegant weddings at this romantic getaway. Special extended stay rates are available.


Go Canoe Riding at Mast Farm Inn

The Mast Farm Inn of Valle Crucis is an historic farmhouse (hosting guests since the 1800’s) with cottage and cabin lodging, invigorating retreats and workshops, and memorable elopements, weddings, and honeymoons.  The Mast Farm Inn has received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award the last five years and, in 2015, was inducted into the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame.  Mast Farm Inn is a member of the upscale Select Registry properties as well as the elite Historic Hotels of America.

Guests of Mast Farm Inn can go fly fishing, fresh water canoeing, Blue Ridge Trail walking and biking as well as other scenic outdoor activities.  Over Yonder is a new destination restaurant and bar located a few hundred yards from the Mast Farm Inn that was co-founded in 2014 with Mast Farm Inn and is now designed, owned, and managed by the award-winning Executive Chef Andrew Long.  This is located across from the Original Mast General Store.

Gorgeous Blooms at The Cedars Davidson
