Lafayette Inn Selected for “Vacation of a Lifetime”
MARSHALL, Mich. – A year of free nights at celebrated inns and B&Bs across North America – that’s what William & Pamela O’Brien won, and their travels take them on February 28, 2014 to Easton, PA, where they will stay at The Lafayette Inn.
The couple was chosen from 49,853 entries as one of the grand prizewinners of the 2013 Vacation of a Lifetime from Select Registry Distinguished Inns. The Pen Argyl, PA couple’s prize is a free night at all of the nearly 350 Select Registry inns, B&Bs and small boutique hotels across the United States and Canada.
“It’s a dream vacation – the opportunity to stay at leading inns in great destinations in 40 states and provinces coast to coast,” says Phil Jenkins, Select Registry’s executive director. “They can visit as many of our properties as they like. Wherever they go, they’ll enjoy the very best our industry has to offer.”
Easton, PA residents are invited to be part of the couple’s journey, serving as local experts and sharing their favorite things to see and do here. Top picks will be featured on the Select Registry blog, showcasing all that the destination has to offer. Plus, qualifying recommendations will serve as entries to win the 2014 Vacation Of A Lifetime, awarding three grand prizes of free nights at all Select Registry inns throughout 2015.
William & Pamela are planning overnight stays this year at inns from Easton, PA.; Versailles, KY.; to Orange, VA.; to Chestertown, MD.; Holicong, PA.; and more. Throughout the year, they will share their travels on the Select Registry blog.
“Unique experiences – that’s what you get at inns and B&Bs, along with personal attention and wonderful accommodations,” Pamela says. “That’s something you just don’t get everywhere. We’re thrilled to have this year of travel to great destinations enjoying delicious breakfasts and gracious hospitality.”
