The Promising Business Outlook for Country Inns


While the pandemic put a temporary halt on the growth of the hospitality industry, the demand for travel accommodations is once again increasing. Industry reports show that travel spending and travel rates are projected to grow rapidly over the next few years. The influx of money from both domestic and international travelers will bolster revenue for boutique hotels and inns. Because of this, investors are increasingly looking at country inns and bed & breakfasts for sale as a smart investment as the travel industry booms. 


Why Visitors Choose Country Inns Over Hotels 


For many travelers, country inns and bed & breakfasts are the obvious choice over larger hotel options. Country inns leave guests feeling relaxed and refreshed – and here are just a few of the reasons why:


  • Country inns offer a more personal experience – visitors can spend more time chatting with the owners and other guests, and receiving individualized recommendations about the best hikes, sites, stores, and restaurants in the area. While larger hotels have friendly staff, the service is nonetheless impersonal and generic. 
  • Country inns are unique and showcase the personality of the innkeepers and of the area. With large hotel chains, each hotel looks the same regardless of the location. Country inns have more personality that gives guests something to remember their stay, and many of the buildings have their own rich histories. 
  • Country inns are a much better value than hotels. Since country inns are small, they often provide additional amenities that you wouldn’t find at hotels or would have to pay extra for, such as complimentary breakfast, afternoon refreshments, and high-quality linens. 
  • Country inns are small businesses run by innkeepers who take pride in their work and emphasize quality and hospitality!
  • Many country inns provide incredible, freshly-prepared food. Oftentimes these memorable meals are even crafted with locally sourced ingredients. 


The Many Benefits of Owning a Country Inn


Travelers are increasingly choosing small inns and bed & breakfasts over larger and more generic chain hotels. Whatever your reason for considering a country inn for sale, there are many benefits to owning a small hospitality business.  


  • Owning a country inn presents the opportunity to be your own boss and make the final decisions for yourself and your business.
  • You can put your unique skillset to work. Whether you like cooking, baking, decorating, working outside, or entertaining, you’ll be able to put your strengths to great use.
  • Country inns are set in idyllic surroundings, so owning a country inn means being constantly surrounded by natural beauty! 
  • There are tax benefits: you’ll be able to deduct a portion of the depreciation of your country inn and operating expenses as business expenses on annual income taxes.
