We hear a lot about “buy American” and the shift of businesses and industry overseas but there is one business that is throughly American and is owned and operated by Americans. The thousands of Bed and Breakfast Inns are not like the multi-national global hotel industry. We are local businesses. We buy locally. We support the local economy, charities and volunteer services. We at the Walnut Lawn Bed and Breakfast along with Innkeepers at 38 other Authentic B and B Association members volunteer our time to support our local townships, collect items for charities and those in need, and we have for years offered a free night’s stay for Veterans on November 11th (Veteran’s Day).
When you hear anyone or the media comment on the lack of “Buy American”, just remember that every Bed and Breakfat Inn is owned and operated by Innkeepers that believe in the American Dream and are an important part of the community in which they live and work. So when you plan a trip, visit or vacation, look to a Bed and Breakfast Inn as one “All American” business you can believe in.
