A Hudson Valley B&B is Giving Away Free Nights for Leap Year
A bed and breakfast in Orange County is getting lots of attention over a special promotion in honor of Leap Year.
You can stay for that extra day at no cost through a promotion that was actually inspired by the innkeepers' own family.
The Caldwell House in Salisbury Mills is a historic home built in 1802 with fourteen rooms where visitors can escape from the city and soak in everything the Hudson Valley has to offer. This month, however, the local bed and breakfast is getting attention for something other than their impressive Tripadvisor reviews.
In honor of Leap Year, the owners of the Caldwell House are offering a free night to people who were born on February 29. If you were born on leap day, which comes around only once every four years, you can stay for that extra day at no cost through a promotion that was actually inspired by the innkeepers' own family. As it turns out, the B&B owners are anxiously expecting the birth of their first grandchild, who just so happens to have a due date of Leap Day.
If you aren't (un)lucky enough to celebrate your birthday only once every 4 years, following another tradition of Leap Day can also earn you a free night's stay. The Caldwell House is also extending the offer to engaged couples where the woman has gotten down on her knee to propose. In some cultures Leap Day is also known as Sadie Hawkins day, the one day where women are encouraged to ask out men. Of course, gender roles have changed quite a bit and modern couples may not really see the big deal in having a woman take the lead, but for a free night's stay who's complaining?
You can find out more about these quirky Leap Day deals on The Caldwell House's website and Facebook page. Are you eligible for either of them? If so, will you be spending the weekend in Salisbury Mills?
