Bed and breakfasts are a popular option for travelers seeking an intimate getaway. These small, usually independently-owned establishments are a niche part of the travel industry and operate internationally. They provide a more personal experience for travelers and often provide a close connection with the host and local culture.


According to the Small Business Development Center, bed and breakfasts tend to be family-run businesses — with no employees. Most establishments have less than 10 rooms and include, as the name implies, breakfast. Inns, on the other hand encompass establishments that provide additional meals.


Bed and breakfasts are a pleasant alternative to a hotel — many have similar amenities and generous hosts. They can provide a personal element to your trip and help support the local economy; some may even be less expensive than a large hotel chain. Accommodations vary, so be sure to do your research and check with the establishment before booking your trip.


The Small Business Development Center reports that almost half of guests are business travelers.  Unlike hotel chains, bed and breakfasts provide a more home-like environment. Most owners cite their love of people as their main motivation to open their establishment.


Whether for business or pleasure, bed and breakfasts provide a unique travel experience that is sure to enhance your next trip.
