StayVA Is The New Bed and Breakfast Association Brand
As you have probably already noticed, the Bed and Breakfast Association of Virginia (BBAV) has recently re-branded. That includes a new name, a new website, and a new logo. We’re proud to introduce StayVA
to all of you. And, we’re excited to watch the continued evolution of our hospitality association.
First, let’s step back in time for a bit. BBAV was formed in the late 1980s and then incorporated in November of 1990. For 25 years, the organization has worked to offer the best bed & breakfast lodging for Virginia travelers. Naturally, the next step became the inclusion of other hospitality establishments.
As Donna Olney Kohler, BBAV President and owner of Fig Street Inn, says, “The new brand and website is a much more accurate representation of our membership. For years, we have had farm stays, cabins, cottages and other properties that were not labeled by their proprietor as a ‘bed and breakfast.’ But our guests and the travel community didn’t really know that by looking at our website.”
Are you wondering about the educational aspect of BBAV? Will it continue to be a part of the new brand? Our answer is yes! StayVA and BBAV will keep offering education, advocacy and leadership to Virginia’s small lodging industry.
