With one-of-a-kind amenities and delicious home cooked meals, bed and breakfasts deliver experiences that leave guests raving. The inns on this list are as varied as their destinations and include an alpine lodge, historic city mansion, charming small-town estates and quiet rural retreats. Behind each is an extraordinary innkeeper who cares about the details.

The bed and breakfasts awarded this year's Top 10 US B&Bs honor are located from coast to coast, north to south, and offer experiences ranging from guided wildlife tours to a stay in an Amish-crafted tree house.

The winners of the 9th Annual Top-10 Award honors were chosen by criteria that included quantitative and qualitative analysis of traveler reviews. It's clear that guests have plenty to love about these award-winning bed and breakfasts!
