About the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association
The Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association was established in 1987 and is one of the largest B&B associations of its kind in the United States. The B&B industry considers itself the original share economy, offering travelers a unique opportunity to stay as a local. Member inns of the WBBA are also well-known for their eco-friendly practices and farm-to-table cuisine. All member inns in this elite collection of B&Bs are inspected, insured and licensed.
