What is an Airbnb Superhost?
In 2016, Airbnb launched a new program, the Airbnb Superhost Program, to entice more guests to choose their properties over more traditional choices like hotels or Bed and Breakfasts. It has also been a way for Airbnb to reward its most prolific and devoted hosts, giving them better search placement, better booking conversions, and therefore a better bottom line. Ultimately, the Airbnb Superhost program has been a tool that allows Airbnb users to distinguish between experienced and novice hosts, and therefore confidently choose a premium-level property.
While Airbnb Superhost properties certainly sound good on paper, there is definitely something missing from the experience as a whole. A clean house, a comfortable bed, a smooth check-in/out process, and basic amenities are all great things to have. But where is the personal service; the actual hospitality?
Wisconsin Bed and Breakfasts are the Only Superhosts You Need
At first glance, the Airbnb Superhost program seems like a novel idea. But what has been overlooked is that Bed and Breakfasts, like those of us here in Wisconsin, are actually the original Superhosts. And we're still the best in the business. We've been in the hospitality industry for decades. We pride ourselves not only on offering some of the best and most unique lodgings in the state of Wisconsin but we also excel in hospitality, offering personalized service that simply can't be matched.
Pick from any of the hosts within the Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast Association, and you'll find they meet the same criteria laid out by Airbnb for its Superhosts, plus a whole lot more. We take being a Superhost beyond the basics and into the extraordinary. Your day will always start with an impressive, and often locally-sourced and made-from-scratch breakfast, the basic and not-so-basic amenities are always included, and moreover, all Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast Association properties are licensed, inspected, insured, and approved. That is a claim that not all Airbnb properties and Superhosts can make, and it does make a difference in the safety, quality, and comfort of your stay.
Additionally, we know that when you go somewhere special, you want to stay somewhere special. From urban contemporaries to working farmsteads, lake homes to historic estates, log cabins to eco-inns, and spacious inns perfect for destination weddings or business travel, our member's properties represent some of the finest and most unique accommodations across the state of Wisconsin. Stay with our Superhosts, and you'll enjoy an authentic experience that starts from the moment you are greeted at the door. After all, no one knows how special Wisconsin is more than our trained Innkeepers. Each has intimate knowledge of their area, and most importantly, they love to share their passion for their area, their house, and the industry!
Safe and quality accommodations matter, but so too do the little touches that set our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfasts apart. Next time you travel to Wisconsin, make it a vacation you'll never forget. Forgo Airbnb, and choose to stay at one of our member properties, the original Superhost, instead. You won't regret it.
