 Attention Vets! B & Bs For Vets Will Be Back - Check back with us in August for 2014 B & Bs For Vets

In 2008, Gillum House Bed & Breakfast started providing free rooms for Vets in honor of Veterans Day in memory and in honor of all her family members who served. In 2009, members of the West Virginia Bed and Breakfast Association joined in the program. In 2010, it went International.

In 2012, Gillum House realized one night was not enough – by the time the Vets drove to Shinnston and spent the night, there was not enough time to actually SEE Shinnston and West Virginia. The B & Bs For Vets nights in 2014 will be Saturday, November 8 thru Monday, November 10 so our Vets can attend the Parade and Veterans Program in Shinnston on Tuesday, November 11.

A VALID Military or VA ID will be required at check-in.

Hey Baby! How Do You Like YOUR Curves?

or this:   dsc08357h_566

We have several turn-by-turn routings for day trips to different areas of West Virginia – and you will not cross the same piece of pavement twice (unless returning to the route).

 

We Give Back - With YOUR Help!

 In 2011 one of our Vets staying with our B & Bs For Vets was a wounded warrior. When I heard about High Ridge House Bed & Breakfast Inn in Putney, Vermont donating $25 for every 2-night stay for the Wounded Warrior Tough Mudder event, I remembered Eric. So I posted a Blog. Shortly thereafter (within an hour) without even knowing of my Blog, I had an e-mail from Eric’s wife about a fundraiser for Operation Second Chance – an organization that had helped them while Eric was at Walter Reed for almost 2 years! 

 blogeric_282

Here is how YOU help! Anyone who books the Gillum Room (room with private bath) for two or more nights AND either puts Wounded Warriors or Operation Second Chance in the comments or mentions either on the phone - $25 will be donated to the organization mentioned. The size of the check(s) depends on YOU! This is an on-going Special. (November 8 - 11 exempted annually as it is free to the Vets booked)

Book your stay in the Gillum Room soon

Come with your girlfriend – Leave with your wife!
