A bed and breakfast that my husband and I stayed at recently in Brattleboro, Vermont, is described accurately on its website as a place for relaxation and renewal, offering the perfect setting for a peaceful, romantic, respite from a busy world. My stay there was indeed restful. The bucolic setting was the perfect place for me to catch up on some R and R and to be pampered. Each morning a tray of tea was left outside our room. Sumptuous breakfast choices included eggs baked in smoked ham, baby spinach, and Grafton Village cheddar cheese and custard french toast croissants with a hint of nutmeg served with maple-orange sauce, all served in a cozy dining room in front of a cozy fireplace. The B and B was also a great place to catch up on literary pursuits. I sent hours in overstuffed, high-backed chairs catching up on some reading and jotting down notes for revising my manuscript. A B and B can serve as the perfect place for a writing retreat. How about you? What’s your favorite sanctuary for writing?
