American Idol Finalists of the Lodging Industry

Here are two things that don't fit together:  "generic" and "bed and breakfast accommodations" Ask any bed and breakfast traveler and they'll tell you.  But, there are people out there who think the old stereotype still exists.  Thanks to Fox News' Paul Eisenberg for helping to clear out the old!

"If your idea of a bed and breakfast experience involves antique furniture, creaky floors, and sharing bathrooms and meals with strangers, well, you have the right idea.

However, this is just one possible B&B experience - the traditional one, if you will - that provides a chance to spend time with like-minded travelers in a quaint and eclectic home away from home. But if you look more closely at the B&B landscape you’ll find your choices are as diverse as a pack of American Idol finalists, ranging from happily staid to contemporary, romantic, and freaky." 
Paul Eisenberg, "The ABCs of B&Bs",, March 15, 2010.

As diverse as a pack of American Idol finalists--that's us!  And you can find us right here in Oregon on the new Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild website.  So, what are you looking for in your bed and breakfast accommodations?  Our new website features an in-depth search capability.  You can find inns by (these are just a few examples in each category):
  • Geographic setting (beach? urban?)
  • Architectural style (contemporary? ranch?)
  • Area Activities (birding? wineries? golfing?)
  • Food Service (allergies?  vegan?)
  • Inn Amenities (green lodging certification? business rates?)
  • Policies (children permitted?  not permitted? pet friendly?)
  • Room Amenities (king beds?  steam showers?)
  • Best Suited For (family travel? romantic travel? business travel?)
  • Or you can string together your own set of keywords, price ranges, region or city and find the bed and breakfast accommodations that are best for you.
So, what are you waiting for?  If you want the creaky you can find it here.  If you want the ultra modern you can find it here.  Today's Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild members go toe-to-toe with hotels, motels, and other forms of lodging.  We're proudly not hotels--check into our members' unique inns of Oregon and discover your own favorite styles of bed and breakfast accommodations!
