Author Nora Roberts Opens Bed & Breakfast With The Writer In Mind

February 28, 2009

Boonsboro Inn

I came across this jewel in a hunt for unique vacations for writers.  Located amongst the rolling hills of western Maryland, Boonsboro Inn recently went through a $3 million dollar renovation led by famous author Nora Roberts.  Seven of the eight rooms in this exceptional bed and breakfast are named after famous literary couples. How fun it would be to nestle in the Jane and Rochester room of Jane Eyre or the Westley and Buttercup room of The Princess Bride.  Each room is meticulously decorated from floor to ceiling.  Rates start at $220 per night.

The town of Boonsboro is a family affair for Nora Roberts.  Her husband, Bruce Wilder runs the local Turn the Page Bookstore cafe with a room dedicated to just Nora Roberts.  The couple also opened Gifts Inn BoonsBoro where regional artists can showcase their wares.  If you’re hungry stop in at Vesta Pizzeria & Family Restaurant, owned by Roberts’ son Dan and his wife, Stacie.

BoonsBoro Inn looks like one of those places that if you just let ’em know you’re coming, they’ll leave the light on.  What an extraordinary gift for a writer or Nora Roberts fan!  Stay for a weekend and indulge in the latest Nora Roberts novel or start the first act of your screenplay.  Check out the USA Today video coverage.
