For the 9th consecutive year, patriotic Bed and Breakfast owners across the United States and Canada are saluting our active and retired Veterans by offering free or discounted stays over Veteran’s Day weekend.
This heart-felt program of appreciation for Vets was started by the Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals in 2008. Since then they estimate that they have hosted more than $2 million in free room stays for Vets during Veteran’s Day celebrations.
For 2016, BnBs in the United States and Canada participating in the program can be found on the dedicated websites BandBsForVets.org and BBCanada. On these sites you will find a list of BnBs by state who are offering complimentary rooms for November 10 or 11, 2016, Veterans Day Weekend. Some inns have extended their offering of rooms through the month of November. Many of the BnBs have partnered with local businesses to offer additional amenities to Veterans. For instance, the White Fences Inn in the Hamptons, NY has partnered with local vineyards and restaurants to offer guided tours, dinners and gift certificates as well.
Veterans, active or retired, who are interested in booking a complimentary stay should contact the inn or bed and breakfast directly using the contact information on the BandBforVets.org website. Proof of military service is required. The Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting small independent lodging owners.
The small business owners of these lovely inns are stepping up to show their appreciation to our nations veterans for another year in 2016.
