we stayed in a B&B when ds was about 2 and the owner was happy to have us there. so i would agree that there are some that probably don't want children i know there are plenty that are also family friendly. i could definitely see them just being worried about the fire hazard issue.

I'd call the fire department wherever you're going and ask about it. I can see how, if a fire broke out and the firecrew went into a room meant for two adults max, found two adults passed out from smoke inhalation but didn't notice the baby in the bed - that would be so terrible... they might however notice a crib in the smokey room and then search for an infant... just where my mind went with your OP.

OK, that's what we did. I wrote back and said, 'no worries, we have a p&p that we can bring.' She said great and asked if there was anything special that our baby might want for breakfast. And I didn't really lie.

Thanks for all your responses. I know you guys understand that it's just tough to feel like you always have to defend your parenting choices.

I never knew B&B didn't like children. Growing up the best vacation we went on was from FL to a B&B in Pa. They had the biggest and most amazing two story play house[like a normal house with play kitchen and loft] and we got to milk cows! I guess I never realized this wasn't normal for B&B's as I haven't gotten to go to another.

This. We often stay places that have sleeper sofas or murphy beds. But the maximum occupancy rules are firm regardless of the age of the people.

Some are intending to attract people planning romantic get aways. It just really depends on the B&B.

If the B&B specifically states that they're family-friendly, then my guess is the owner was concerned about liability issues: if the baby fell off the bed or if their bedding caused suffocation. As your DH suggested, dutifully bring the P&P, then sleep in the manner you wish.

sounds like you ahve a solutiont hat works for you, so replying now is a bit silly, but FWIW, in defence of the innkeeper, I read it this way:
max. occupancy might not be based just on square footage, and I can see the rule being max 2 people in a room with one bed. By bringing the pack and play, you are turning it into a room with 2 beds, which could then have a max occupancy of 3 people.

dunno, and it doesn`t matter much, but as a small business owner myself, I can assure you that there are plenty of little illogical rules like that out there!

I would lie and not give a hoot about it

Honestly, I think this b&b owner is ridiculous. It is non of her business how you sleep in the room if the baby is allowed in the room! I would not mention it anymore and NOT bring the pack and play.Why inconvenience yourself by hauling even more stuff ? I would just be sweet as pie and not mention a thing.
If the fire marshall allows a baby in the room a baby cosleeping is not an issue, there are not fire regulations for an infant sleeping with their parents!!

So..........

Why would WHERE you sleep in the room be any of their business? What would/could they do if you were up late and fell asleep on the sofa? Or if DC fell asleep on the floor with her binky? Or you were all snuggling for a night-night story in bed and ALL fell asleep there?

I agree with PP-- I think the B&B owner is being ridiculous.

Yep, sounds like a liabilty thing and you've settled it well.

"why yes of course that would be possible" (subtext, "but we won't be doing it")
then when/if she asks about the baby sleeping
"the baby slept just fine!"
