Spend a Weekend in One of Baton Rouge's Best B&Bs

by Glenda Daughety & Team

Once in a while we all just need to get away and relax for a day or two.  One great way to do that is with a bed and breakfast. Maybe you live in the Baton Rouge area already and don't have time for a long trip, but want a romantic getaway.  Or if you live outside of Baton Rouge and want to visit this extraordinary city, then staying at a B&B might be the perfect accent to a great stay in Baton Rouge.

Baton Rouge has some of the most outstanding bed and breakfasts you'll find anywhere.  Here's a few of the best bed and breakfasts in and around Baton Rouge.

The Stockade Bed and Breakfast

This relaxing retreat is set among the tree-lined neighborhoods of Baton Rouge on 11 acres and named after the Civil War stockades that used to be located here.  This historic B&B features 5 large suites, including a two-bedroom unit, all with private baths. You'll enjoy the peaceful grounds that have been certified as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. This B&B is also a perfect place to host an intimate wedding, showers, or small gatherings.

But this bed and breakfast also offers modern touches, such as WI-FI and 1000 DVDs to choose from.  You’ll start your mornings off right with your choice of continental breakfast or local egg dishes.

Useful Tips for Moving with Children

by Glenda Daughety & Team

You’ve made your decision. You’re moving. You even found a great house. Time to start packing. As well as tell the kids. It doesn’t matter how far you are moving. Moving at all can be an unpleasant event in a child’s life. So how can you make sure that it goes relatively smooth?

First Try a Family Meeting. Get some take out like pizza and have an enjoyable family diner, that way you can casually bring up the subject. This gives you a chance to slip into the conversation without too much upset and to let them know why the move is necessary. It’s also a good opportunity to let them ask their questions, so you can answer them and ease any concerns they will have.

Get Them Involved in the Process. This is also a good opportunity to go through the house and clean out all the unnecessary stuff that that your family have picked up over the years. Get the kids to help you decide what can be trashed, donated or sold. Moving sale time!

Encourage them to Learn More About Where Your Family is Moving. Help them learn as much about their soon to be new community. Encourage them to do some of their own research. Help them check out the local schools and school district. A website of the local schools with pictures would be a great help and let them get an idea of where they’ll be attending school. You could also try to find a local online paper to help the whole family get a feel for the local people and issues.

These are just a few helpful ideas on how to make moving with children go smoother. For more tips, check out this link here.
