Bed & Breakfast Market Continuously Grows

The bed and breakfast market gains popularity world-wide as travellers always seek unique and budget-friendly options in accommodations. There is a definite niche for bed and breakfast in the travel industry and growth is inevitable even in coming years with the shrinking economy.
During the last five or six year’s bed and breakfasts gained popularity over thousands of large hotel chains and serviced apartments. Bed and breakfast are homely, comfortable and always available at a much lower rate than all its counterparts.
The advantage of the growth in popularity in bed and breakfasts are the insurers which support the industry as they feel the risk in bed and breakfast insurance are much lower. The advantage for insurance companies is that most owners of this niche are living on their premises and it is a strange combination of home and business, yet safer for insurers.
Around the same time that bed and breakfasts took popularity the Bed and Breakfast .com awards was set up and for the last few years all owners of bed and breakfast and Inns have all been competing to appear on the list as one of the top bed and breakfasts. Independently posted reviews of B & B’s and Inns are regarded both as qualitative and quantitative analysis of the respective entrees.
Historic places are especially popular to convert into Bed and Breakfast accommodations as travellers loves the idea of staying over in historic places which they can never own and it adds to the novelty of romance. B & B’S are very often a historic home converted and typically Revolution-era townhouses, Queen Ann mansions and more. These types of structures are always steeped in history and add to romance. Working cattle ranches, dairy ranches and homes perched beside lakes and rivers are equally well suited for bed and breakfast and typically very popular.
