Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably significant to world history with respect to their architecture, engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.

They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging, excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.

Unfortunately, countless historically significant structures have been (and continue to be) lost forever.

Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.

When you travel, use HistoricStay.com to discover Historic Stays in and around your destination(s).
