Select Registry Gives Away ‘Vacation of A Lifetime’: Free Nights at Each of 350 Leading Inns

Travelers can win a “vacation of a lifetime” with a new contest from Select Registry Distinguished Inns of North America. The grand prize winner will be entitled to a free night stay at each of the nearly 350 inns and B&B’s in the Select Registry™ portfolio for a full year.

“It’s a dream vacation – an opportunity to explore exciting new places and visit family and friends, with complimentary accommodations at the most celebrated inns and bed and breakfasts throughout the U.S. and Canada,” says Will Carlson, executive director, Select Registry.

To enter the Vacation Of A Lifetime Contest, you register with the Select Registry Golden Quill Loyalty Program at http://www.SelectRegistry.com/GoldenQuill. After that, each of your qualified Golden Quill nights throughout 2012 will count as an additional entry.

One grand prize winner will be entitled to a free night’s lodging at each of the nearly 350 Select Registry inns, B&Bs and boutique hotels throughout North America, redeemable for a full year.

Additionally, three first-place winners each will get a $500 Select Registry Gift Certificate good at all the portfolio’s properties. Five second-place winners will each receive a $250 Select Registry Gift Certificate.

Select Registry’s Vacation Of A Lifetime Contest is open to travelers ages 18 years of age and older in the U.S. and Canada. The promotion ends midnight EST, Dec. 31, 2012, and winners will be announced in early 2013.

Only 350 inns in North America have earned this designation, passing rigorous inspections to gain and then maintain membership.
Former Vacation of a Lifetime winner Lee Willson traveled with his wife, Joyce, from their home in Washington to Select Registry inns in that state as well as in Arizona, California, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, Washington D.C. and British Columbia.

“We stayed at amazing inns in cities and towns where we have friends and relatives,” Willson explains. “Joyce and I like regional cooking and things that are local and unique. We sampled fantastic regional cuisine from the Pacific Northwest all the way to New Orleans and Charleston, and we got our recommendations from the Select Registry innkeepers.

“Unique experiences – that’s what we got at each B&B,” Willson continues, “along with beautiful accommodations and a real feel for the local culture. It truly was the ‘vacation of a lifetime.’”
