Membership Information

FLBBA has developed a series of recommended standards to ensure that members provide the highest quality Bed and Breakfast accommodations in the Finger Lakes Region. These guidelines are designed to assist innkeepers in providing a high level of safety, comfort, cleanliness and hospitality.

While FLBBA members are not regularly inspected, we do require that members be in compliance with our Association’s Recommended Member Standards, and sign a pledge to uphold these standards, and have our Membership Chair visit your B&B to welcome you to FLBBA and answer any questions.

Members are required to send copies of their DBA Certificate or Incorporation Documentation, New York State Tax Certificate of Authority, a copy of your Homeowner’s/Bed and Breakfast Insurance Policy cover page showing a minimum liability rider of $1,000,000 (one million) coverage, and town/village or county permits where applicable.  You will be asked to provide information about your B&B, including a brief description with your application.  This information will be used to set up your FLBBA page on our website.

Dues are currently $150.00 per year.  There is an additional $50 one-time fee to set up a new member on the FLBBA website ($200.00 total). If you are interested in joining, please mail back the completed New Membership Application Form, the signed Recommended Standards Form with a check mark next to completed items and/or notations where appropriate, and copies of your DBA, Tax Certificate of Authority, Insurance Liability coverage, permits and a check made payable to FLBBA for total dues to:

Please bear with us as we conduct our businesses differently than we were just a few short months ago in an effort to keep ourselves, our employees and our guests safe and healthy. Thank you.
