National Small Business Week 2021

National Small Business Week 2021 – May 2, 2021 to May 8, 2021

National Small Business Week is May 2 through May 8. 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.

For more than 50 years, the U.S. Small Business Administration has celebrated National Small Business Week which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

National Small Business Week 2021 – May 2, 2021 to May 8, 2021

We hope you will celebrate with us by supporting the inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. Support local by shopping local, spreading some kindness, and encourage your community to do the same!

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

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.

When you commit to Book>>Direct, you will enjoy many perks and amenities that you would not have access to when booking through a travel agency.  Not to mention, you will almost always pay less!

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: We all may be a little rusty, and a little leery, on planning trips just yet. And while it’s almost safe enough to climb aboard that travel train, we’re ready when you are! Our inns have been proactively doing everything in our power to keep you safe and welcome you back. Not sure if your favorite inn is open? Give them a call as they just might be.

A Gift of Relaxation through the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild

A Gift of Relaxation is the perfect gift for any occasion, any time of year. Rest and Relaxation in the form of a stocking stuffer? A wedding gift for the newly married? A graduation present? Employee holiday gifts? A much needed reprieve from the months of lockdown we’ve all endured? No two inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild 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.

Guests at Thyme and Tide Bed and Breakfast on the Oregon Coast recently used 6 gift Lodging Gift Vouchers for a two nights stay. Susan and Duane from Eugene receive the gift of relaxation every Christmas from their kids. This last year the kids asked them if they’d prefer something else and they replied, “no, we like the gift cards best.”

Duane and Susan chatted about their long history of enjoying Oregon B&B’s and using the OBBG Lodging Gift Vouchers. They prefer B&B’s when they travel and Duane even Inn-sat for a 7 room B&B, single handedly, long ago when the full time Innkeepers went on vacation.

They arrived in masks and social distancing due to Covid and were quickly able to relax at Thyme and Tide, confident that all safety protocols were being observed. The Three Capes Scenic Drive led them to Oceanside and Thyme and Tide where they had a sunny day to explore the Oceanside tunnel to Short Beach. Dungeness crab is abundant right now. They feasted on crab quiche, made with locally caught crab, veggies on the side and fresh cinnamon buns the first morning. The second day they requested Bacon and Eggs with English muffins and avocado. A warm berry crisp rounded out their breakfast.

With Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild Lodging Gift Vouchers you’ll give the gift of relaxation, time away from the everyday, the opportunity to gain a clear head. They are available in $25 increments and can be redeemed at every Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild member across the state. With over 25 members to choose among, that’s a lot of choice.

And the recipient can decide where and when to use them. Maybe they’d like to walk in the sand on the Oregon Coast?  Hike along the rim of Crater Lake? Catch a new museum exhibit in Portland? Sample a pinot noir in the Oregon Wine Country? It’s not just about the lodging. It’s about time. And if you’ve been on the receiving end here’s your chance to pay it forward.

You can purchase Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild Lodging Gift Vouchers online, choose the amount and where you’d like them delivered.  We’ll send them by mail with delivery confirmation.

It’s that simple. Not much of your time, but a generous gift of time for your recipient. What are you waiting for? Support a local, independently owned, small Oregon business. We thank you in advance.
