Oregon's Inspected and Approved Bed and Breakfasts

All B&Bs are not alike. That's one of the great things about B&Bs, but it's also what makes choosing just the right one for each traveler a challenge. When making your decision on where to book, we suggest that you choose a member of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild which has been inspected and approved and follows the Guild's Standards and Ethics.

Did you know that in the State of Oregon a bed and breakfast with 2 or less rooms are NOT required to meet any state or county standards?! There is NO inspection by county health departments, NO food handlers training or permit is required and nNO entity checks to see if there is even any commercial liability insurance to protect you if you are injured on their property. If they have their own private water system, NO county or state agency is checking to see if the water supply is safe.

You never have to worry about any of that when choosing a B&B that is a member of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild! The member inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild (OBBG) have all been inspected and approved by OBBG and even it's small 1 or 2 bedroom B&B members meet state standards and more importantly, OBBG standards which are even higher than the state in many cases!

Here at Sandlake Country Inn we have been proud members of OBBG for more than 15 years and are also licensed and inspected by not only OBBG, but also our county health department twice a year with surprise inspections. Sandlake Country Inn has also been certified "Green" by the OBBG Green Inspected Program.

When making your choice of where to stay, choosing a B&B is a great choice, and choosing an Inspected and Approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast is is not only a great choice, but you can rest assured that you'll be healthy and safe too!
