Being a “Green” Bed & Breakfast

Posted on September 3, 2019 by Bedfordlandings

Parts of the last two blog posts have focused on steps that we are taking to reduce our carbon footprint. To that end, we had an opportunity to collectively report these steps to Virginia Green Travel Alliance.  Recently, we were awarded a certificate recognizing that we are a Virginia Green Travel Partner.

Referencing last month’s blog, our solar panels have not been inspected yet but we are hoping that we can report that we are collecting the sunshine soon!

And for those who know that Jack built a GREEN airplane, he now has it back at the Smith Mountain Lake airport.  After he flies 40 hours on it (to be sure all is working properly), I plan to fly with him!  It is a beautiful work done by a fine craftsman, mechanic, and engineer!

Thank-you for the part you are doing to be green as you reduce, reuse, and recycle.

We loved this B&B! Best hosts and best BREAKFAST ever. Our room was beautiful and romantic. Very very close to Smith Mountain Lake State Park, which was gorgeous. If you are a pilot you definitely want to spend a night or two here. Right on the SML airport runway. The house is an amazing timber frame house with a stacked stone fireplace. My dream house!!!!
