NHBBA Member Benefits:
Membership in NHBBA is open to Bed & Breakfasts with as few as two guest rooms, with no more than three guest rooms sharing one bathroom. Members posted room rates shall include breakfast. No properties with public restaurants will be eligible for membership. For more details see the NHBBA by-laws.

Annual dues are currently set at $75.  Upon joining, a one time separate listing set up fee of $40 will put your property on our web site.  Forms below form the content of that listing.

Some B&B's are located at the edge of one of New Hampshire's designated tourism regions so they draw their business from both the "home" region and the neighboring one.  NHBBA permits a second listing in the "Find a B&B by Region" section with board approval and an additional $50 annual fee.  With Availability On line, you will show up in your "home" region.  If this applies to you, please include this request with your listing form.  Jack or Kate will advise if your request will be filled.
