Bed and Breakfast Locations in Google Earth

Bed and Breakfast Locations in Google EarthThey call themselves Pillows and Pancakes (an amusing variation on Bed and Breakfast). Their web site’s focus is to collect information on Bed and Breakfast lodgings all over the world. PnP has written a network link for showing their database in Google Earth. So, you have a new way to look for alternative lodging while travelling. Once you load the PnP network link, you need to zoom down to the area of interest. The network link will then load the nearest bed and breakfast location to your current view. If you click on a placemark you will get the name of the location, usually a photo, and a link to the more in-depth information at the PnP web site. A nice resource for storing in your Places folder. By the way, when you are done testing it, make sure you turn off the network link.

  1. We’ve updated our Google Earth Layer. The system handles tilt views much better now. In the past when the view was titled, the B&Bs in the foreground would vanish.

  2. Hi, am planning a slow trip from Pennsylvania to Florida with my wife in the next month and would like to stay in some really nice B&B’s on the way down. King bed with fireplace would really be nice.
    What really nice ones can you reccomend.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards…….Jack

  3. Hi Jack,
    If you were coming out west you could stay at the Anniversary House B & B in Cedar City Utah. King size bed and a fireplace in the Oceanside Suite. If you ever get out this way stop and see us at the Inn.
    Pillows and Pancakes is a great site to find B & B’s on.
    Sincerely,
    Nan (Innkeeper)
