Not to be confused with vacation rentals, “packages” at hotels or accommodations that simply offer both a “bed” and a “breakfast”, a true “Bed & Breakfast” (noun) is a unique property type that operates more like a small inn or boutique hotel. Averaging eight rooms in size, bed & breakfasts are typically owner-operated with the owner being the full time innkeeper that lives on-site. B&B’s are typically licensed and provide extra services and personal touches such as breakfast, daily housekeeping, welcome gifts, etc. B&Bs are as unique as the innkeepers that own and run them. Not only is every property unique, but every room in every property is unique. No cookie-cutter here.
