9 Amazing Guestrooms at Hines Mansion

Most travelers prefer to stay over in a bed & breakfast because these types overnight accommodations usually provide travelers with better service and the accommodations itself is usually quite interesting. Hotel rooms are often dull, cold and usually contain the same white linen and watered down room décor. Bed and breakfasts, on the other hand, strive to entertain their guests by creating rooms with a warm atmosphere, a unique vibe, and an inviting overall look. Visiting a bed and breakfast is almost like taking on an amazing adventure because staying a night in a beautiful and personally decorated room certainly is quite an experience.

At Hines Mansion, we do our best to be one of those bed and breakfasts that go above and beyond when it comes to creating a unique experience for our customers. Each of our guestrooms is personally designed to be completely unique and completely different from any other overnight accommodation you have ever stayed over at before.

The Eagle’s Nest
The Eagle’s Nest is located on the highest floor of Hinges Mansion and is the largest room in the building. This beautiful room features 8-foot oval windows with a breathtaking view and the interior decorating is incredibly patriotic. A vintage American theme is used within the bedroom complete with patriotic flag, matching room decorations and a luxurious king-sized bed with unique quilted bedding.

The Kitty Hines
Kitty Hines was the original hostess of the bed and breakfast and the room was named after her. This room consists of classic shades of blue and with a light and clean vibe. Our Kitty Hines suite is one of our most elegant rooms, boasting turn-of-the-century French stylings, with the shades of blue along with the beautiful décor designed to promote relaxation while you are staying over in this cozy little room.

The blue hues of this suite will whisk you away to thoughts of a cool ocean breeze, and the stained glass window will dazzle you with colors reminiscent of a summer long past.

Secret Garden
The Secret Garden room has a floral design and is a fantastic room if you love an open plan room. There are no dividers between the bed and bathtub which creates promotes the feeling of friendliness and openness.

Inspired by Butch Cassidy, the Lodge is a rustic western-themed suite that will transport you to a cabin in the woods where you can find rest in the king-sized pine four-post bed and enjoy the large two-person jetted tub as well as a private bathroom. The Lodge is a comfortable, rustic home away from home and is undoubtedly the most popular room at the mansion..

5 Reasons to Choose a Bed & Breakfast

Do you love to travel frequently? Traveling is incredibly good for your emotional health. The unique experiences you enjoy on each new journey are amazing for boosting self-confidence, enriching your life and developing your character. Most travelers that love unique experiences on their journeys prefer to stay overnight in a bed & breakfast rather than a hotel room because these overnight accommodations greatly enhance the entire experience. Here are 5 wonderful reasons to choose a bed and breakfast over a hotel room so you can get more out of each and every trip.  
  1. Stunning Property- Most bed & breakfasts are beautiful properties. The buildings that are selected for bed and breakfasts are often located on a beautiful property and most of these buildings have significant architectural designs or a very deep history. Hines Mansion, for example, was constructed in 1895 by Russell Spencer Hines and his wife Kitty with money they acquired through mining. Over the years the building underwent several renovation processes that eventually developed Hines Mansion into a beautiful bed and breakfast that travelers frequently seek out when they journey through Provo.  
  2. Unique and Beautiful rooms- Most hotel rooms are created with functionality and uniformity in mind. The uniform look of hotel rooms makes it much easier to maintain and clean these rooms but the downside to the uniform look is that just about every hotel room looks exactly the same. The rooms in bed and breakfasts are usually designed to enhance comfort and these rooms are mostly breathtaking with a unique warm vibe and style. These rooms provide guests with an immersive experience taking them away from reality, which is perfect for weekend getaways or anniversaries!   
  3. Amazing Food- For many bed and breakfasts, the quality of the breakfasts is outstanding when compared to most hotels and even compared to restaurants. The concept of a bed and breakfast creates a cozy environment because nothing beats smelling the aroma from a nice, delicious home-cooked meal. Hines Mansion puts a lot of effort into creating breakfasts that are healthy, filling, scrumptious and ready for you when you wake up!  
  4. Service and Hospitality- Part of the experience that a bed and breakfast provides is that it accommodates fewer customers at the same time and thus has much more time to attend customer’s needs. When you stay at a bed and breakfast you can count on amazing hospitality, attention to detail and that extra helping hand to help you navigate the location you’re at or to help you find amazing sights to see and things to do during your stay. At Hines Mansion, we do our best to ensure that you have a great experience in taking in the sights, sounds, and experiences Provo has to offer.  
  5. A Personalized Experience- Hines Mansion is owned by local residents with great knowledge on all the wonderful activities to enjoy in Provo. You can get the best advice on all the best restaurants to enjoy, the best activities to do and if you want to get a truly local experience then the bed and breakfast personnel can help you find dining areas where you can taste local foods and markets where you can shop and get a true feeling of locals and their daily interactions. This is generally true for most bed and breakfasts, as they are owned by natives of the area, so their expertise on the area after living there is a good resource for anyone looking to stay with them. 
When you stay at a Bed and Breakfast you get much more than just a breakfast and a bed to sleep in. Everything from the room’s interior design to the hospitality is designed to offer you an amazing experience that will greatly enhance the quality of your journey.The next time you're out on your latest adventure, keep these reasons in mind, or perhaps even visit a bed and breakfast to see for yourself how wonderful of an experience it can be!
