Coronavirus Update for Travelers (as of 8/29/20)

The Coronavirus has impacted all of our lives. Governors across the country are asking their citizens to practice social distancing and to wear masks when visiting attractions, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, etc.  

As of July 29, all counties in Pennsylvania are in the green phase. In the green phase innkeepers can accept reservations for leisure travelers and are required to follow Business and Building Safety Orders as set forth by the Department of Health. In the green phase, restaurants/bars can operate at 50% capacity for outdoor seating and 25% indoor seating.

TRAVEL

Please call ahead to ensure that the B&B/Inn is open for business. Some of our innkeepers have closed temporarily to protect themselves, their staff and guests, while others are accepting guests. Find a B&B/Inn that is near your travel route and destination.

Members of the PA Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns are licensed, inspected and insured and comply with PABBI’s Code of Hospitality Standards & Ethics. Our professional innkeepers exhibit a high degree of cleanliness for guests and are taking additional precautions to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 pathogens.

PABBI has asked our Pennsylvania Innkeeper's to adopt the Bed & Breakfast Inns Promise. You can learn more about the Promise at www.painns.com/promise. Please have a mask with you as you travel in PA.

The small size of our B&Bs/Inns help to limit the risk of exposure since there are no crowds. Many are taking extra precautions to ensure social distancing among guests - such as serving breakfast in your room.

Booking directly with our B&Bs/Inns is your best option for you to ask what safety measures they have implemented to keep you and your family safe. In the event that you have to reschedule or cancel your reservation, you’ll find innkeepers more willing to work with you to avoid penalties and cancellation fees.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

"Waking up in a Better State" never meant as much as it does now.  If you are planning to travel in the coming months, please consider purchasing a PABBI Gift Certificate (no expiration date) that is valid at any of our member properties. A PABBI Gift Certificate makes a great wedding, anniversary or birthday present.
