    Directory Listing - BedandBreakfastCountry.com

    Food for thought... a real questoion. When people want to stay at a hotel most will go to/and book through a travel website like hotels.com or expedia.com etc. When people want to book with a B&B they often go direct to B&B itself (either e-mail or phone).

    How accurate are your B&B.com statistics?
