America Runs on Small Businesses

America Runs on Small Businesses and We Are Small Businesses

Shopping Small adds up to Big Things.

Small businesses are at the core of every thriving neighborhood. That’s why, in the midst of the recession in 2010, American Express created Small Business Saturday® on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses.

America Runs on Small Businesses and small businesses are the retail backbone of our communities and our economy. Shop Small is a nationwide movement dedicated to supporting thousands of small businesses and encouraging shoppers to think small.

The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild offers a wide variety of inns, from a small guest cottage or two-room bed and breakfast to a larger country inn or small historic hotel. No two inns are alike. One thing we all have in common: we are small, owner/manager operated, independent lodging properties. When you stay with us, or purchase a Gift Certificate, you are making a difference by supporting our businesses and our community. Fact: for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community

When giving the gift of lodging you will be giving the gift of a unique Oregon experience. And the recipient can decide where and when to use them. So maybe a walk in the sand on the Oregon Coast would soothe the soul. Or a hike or snowshoe along the rim of Crater Lake.  Catch a new museum exhibit in Portland. Sample a Pinot Noir in the Oregon Wine Country. Maybe just relax with a good book in one of our inn’s lovely gardens.

The Lodging Gift Certificates of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild can be purchased online line and are redeemable at any one of our 40 Oregon Bed and Breakfasts, available in $25 increments. By giving the gift of a Lodging Gift Certificate from the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild, you’ll be giving the gift of a unique Oregon Experience. And unlike some other Gift Certificate programs that keep upwards of 20% of the face value, know that 100% goes directly to our innkeepers, each a small individually owned Oregon Inn. We thank you in advance.

Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is ready to share Oregon with you: it’s environment, culture, and heritage. Combine gracious hospitality with ambiance at an inspected and approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member Inn.

Hospitality Update: Watch for updates as mask restrictions may lift soon under guidance from the Oregon Health Authority, Oregon is still requiring masks in some outdoor public spaces and all indoor public spaces, that includes the inns of the Oregon B&B Guild.

Let’s all be respectful and safe and follow the guidance of the CDC. Our inns will continue to do everything in our power to keep you safe. Not sure if your favorite inn is open? Give them a call as they just might be.
