Aspiring Innkeeper Membership

Thinking of opening your own B&B in Montana?  Do you want to learn the Bed and Breakfast business?  Trying to find a B&B for sale?  As an aspiring innkeeper or a new B&B owner, you can find resources through MTBBA, your state association.

No one should have to start a bed and breakfast without support.  That is why the MTBBA has created a way for you to become a member.  As an Aspiring Member you will have all of the resources of the Association as our long term members.  Once you open your B&B, you can then move right into Inn Membership.

Program Benefits:

  • Four hours consultation with experienced MTBBA Innkeeper (one time).
  • Access to the “members only” section of the MTBBA website including vital information on running and maintaining an Inn.
  • Access to all MTBBA Associate members and benefits offered for their products and services.

Eligibility: Those person(s) who do not currently own or operate an Inn, yet are engaged in the process of determining whether they wish to construct, purchase, or manage a Bed and Breakfast. Aspiring Membership terminates 30 days from the opening/and or operating a Bed and Breakfast. Any portion of unused dues may be applied within 90 days toward the immediate transfer into application of full membership of the MTBBA. Aspiring membership dues are $100 annually

Our Aspiring Conference will show you everything from bed making and breakfast prep to how to finance your business.

Most importantly, you will start to become part of the B&B community.  As the world changes around us, it is important that we keep up with regulations, technology, and trends that affect our business.  Together we are all stronger than if we try to go it alone.
