Ha! It's so nice to hear that viewpoint! We have a six year old, so, as a parent traveling with one of those little humans, I was going to keep quiet on this thread. I agree parents make the difference...we have also had our share of overly energetic kids, but I wouldn't ban them. Now, if I could only ban some of the parents....Sorry to hear this, We love children at our Inn. They are so cute in the mornings at breakfast. (OK, Some are!) Two days ago a little girl asked Margie if she could hug her. BUT, and it's the BIG BUT - The Parents make all the difference. Maybe, people are used to No Children at many B&B's - I think they are on there best behavior??? I like to think so anyway. People are a Pain for sure! We try to remember that everyone is doing there best..... Honestly though, we don't get many Children - I guess we may feel differently if we did ???
