B & B Fence

My hubby and I found this sign pretty amusing and wanted to share it, along with the gateway and fence. Thanks to Theresa for hosting the Good Fences!


The notation under the sign says "back one street, left (can't read the rest)". Wouldn't you be glad the B & B isn't the one behind the sign if you had a reservation? And the sign looks a bit worn.

Wondering if the B&B is still in operation?

Great fence and sign shot. Yes, I would be very happy knowing that building is NOT the B&B! LOL!

Have a happy day!

Revrunner said...

Yes, this does look a bit dubious. :-)

Anvilcloud said...

Nicely found. I don't think I'd care to explore that B&B even if it's not the one behind the sign.

"Back one street left on 3rd"
Hopefully it is a nicer looking place!
Have a great day!

Andy said...

Great find!

Cranberry Morning said...

HaHa. Yeah, that does look a bit vintage. LOL I'd love to have that sign on my front porch, though!

That sign is not a selling point!

Hi Linda Kay, I wonder if this was out where there are few choices. Otherwise I would just smile at that sign as I passed by. :-)

Too funny, they had a dream, but things happen right! The moment you wonder, have we left Oz!

TexWisGirl said...

too cute. yes, the sign placement doesn't bode well. :)

Linda W. said...

Yeah, at first glance of the sign, I might be looking for different lodging! :)

Gail said...

Bet they don't have much drop in business.

Lin Floyd said...

confusing....

Mike said...

That building looks like it still has a good roof on it. And the paint looks OK. Somebody could still be living there. I see a satellite dish too.

Cherdo said...

If the sign just said "B & B" I would be suspicious of what the "Bs" stood for, Linda! LOL.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I think if I owned a bed and breakfast I would work on that sign! LOL!

Margaret Adamson said...

Not up to my standard of a B&B when I ran one.

fishducky said...

At least they tell you where it is!!

William Kendall said...

Dubious is an understatement!

Amy at love made my home said...

I wonder how many people didn't read all of the sign and drove off because of the house! xx

Connie said...

This would be a true disappointment. I found your blog from a comment that you left on John's Island blog and just had to come visit:) It's always a pleasure meeting a new blogging sister. Please come visit, my welcome mat is always out.
Connie :)

it would be nice to stay there

Rebecca said...

Hmmmm, I think the sign would be a turn off for me!

The Yum List said...

What a quaint little B&B.

Ida said...

That's funny! Makes you wonder if people actually thought that place was the B&B for them to put up a sign telling people where it actually is located.

whiteangel said...

I looked at the sign and smiled. Then read the bottom part of your post :). Not a great idea to put the sign where it is, must turn people off...

Rory Bore said...

oh yes, I would definitely have a moments panic!
perhaps the place is no longer in business.

Anita said...

If it's meant to be a sign-board, it should be appropriately placed, else it may be misleading :)

strangelynaked.com said...

The bottom part says "Back one street, left on 3rd." What kind of strange advertisement is that? It's not like an actual billboard. It's a sign in a field. I don't know if I'd stay in a place that advertised like that. I might be more apt to stay in the barn.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

LOL...I seriously, at first, thought the B&B WAS the building behind the sign.

carolann said...

Nice finds.

Marie C said...

Such a cute post...one has to hope the real B&B is worth the stay!

Cynthia said...

Funny! So odd to put a sign where you have already passed the business.I would like to see the B&B just because of the sign.

Mildred said...

So cute. I had no idea you were blogging again.

Rose said...

My first thought was oh, no, surely that is not the bed and breakfast. I am even wondering what the real B & B was like.
