B&Bs offer free rooms for veterans

Two Summerland bed and breakfast establishments are offering free accommodations for veterans for Remembrance Day.

Two Summerland bed and breakfast establishments are offering free accommodations for veterans and serving and retired military personnel over Remembrance Day.

For the second year, A Apples-N-Wine Bed and Breakfast at 5680 Hespeler Rd. is offering a free night in its Lakeview Suite. The offer is for Nov. 10 for a veteran or serving or retired military person and one guest.

Also this year for the first time the At Morrow Suite, 12650 Morrow Ave., is offering a veteran or military special.

The two businesses are taking part in B&B for Vets, an international program started in 2008 by a bed and breakfast in West Virginia that has now spread to at least six countries.

“It is our way of saying thank you to those who are presently serving or have served to protect our freedom,” says a news  release from the hosts at A Apples-N-Wine, Liz and Denis Cyr.

The guests will wake up on Nov. 11 to a three-course gourmet breakfast prior to participating in the Summerland Remembrance Day Service. Interested persons can contact A Apples-N-Wine Bed and Breakfast at 250-404-0503 reserve the suite.

The participating individual must show appropriate identification at check-in. Accepted ID will be Veterans Affairs Benefit Card, DND ID Card or Record of Service Card.

At Morrow Suite is offering a four-night stay for three-nights pay or a seven-night stay for five-nights pay. Nov. 10 and 11 must be included.

Anne-Mieke van Bueren said she wanted to take part in honour of her father. She and Rudie Smits are hosts and can be reached at 250-494-9234.
