The PA Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns was initiated when a group of innkeepers gathered in State College in May 2011. This group of Innkeepers met frequently for about 18 months to write ByLaws, review our mission, decide on operational standards, and plot a course for this new association. Because PA stands second only to California in number of B&Bs in a state, PABBI’s volunteer Board of Directors saw the need and the potential strength of this group.
The following points tell much of the story of PABBI…
The mission of PABBI is to elevate and grow the bed and breakfast industry in Pennsylvania by providing support, guidance, and education to innkeepers; building strong relationships with key industry leaders; and lobbying for state laws and codes that fairly deal with the needs of innkeepers and guests.
To support Pennsylvania as a robust tourist destination by ensuring a strong, vibrant, top-quality bed and breakfast industry.
