Coronavirus Update for Travelers (as of 5/10/20)

The Coronavirus has impacted all of our lives. Governors across the country are asking their citizens to stay home, practice social distancing, and have closed non-essential businesses.

Pennsylvania’s Governor has deemed “Travel Accommodations” as essential businesses for essential travel during the red phase (stay-at-home orders). 

On May 8, Governor Wolf moved 24 counties from the red phase to the yellow phase that allowed additional businesses to open. Innkeepers can accept reservations for those traveling. These counties are mostly in the northcentral and northwest regions of PA. On May 15, Governor Wolf will move 13 counites in the southwest region to the yellow phase.


If you have an essential need to travel to a county in the red phase or leisure travel to a county in the yellow phase, 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 that need a safe place to stay. 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 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.


"Waking up in a Better State" never meant as much as it does now. When the time is right, we'll be here waiting. Your PA Innkeepers miss you! 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.
