Thanksgiving BnB Getaways – Be Welcomed to a Home Away From Home for the Holiday with Inns That Offer Thanksgiving Dinner.
Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for everything you have, which is a good thing to remember considering how stressful it can be planning the big event. Coordinating food, family, and friends can be an overwhelming endeavor – except, of course, if you have a professional handle it all for you. That’s one of the biggest benefits of B&B’s for holidays, and really, all year round! Since the holiday season is upon us, here are few inns where you can take advantage of (and enjoy) the best home-away-from-home hospitality.
The Plantinum Pebble Boutique Inn, West Harwich, MA

Just 10 minutes from the beach and situated in the perfect spot for exploring Cape Cod and the surrounding area, the inn also offers the Stress Free Thanksgiving Cape Cod package – something guests are very grateful for. This “Run of the House” special, which spans through November 26, is priced at just $179 per night (excluding tax) with a three-night minimum.
