Bed and breakfasts are holding fast in the age of Airbnb and Expedia

Tami and Doug Schluter weren’t looking for a life change when they set out on a driving vacation in the summer of 2005.

Tami, whom Doug jokingly calls “unemployable because of her authority issues,” worked part-time in sales and in real estate. Doug had owned his own CPA firm since 1990 in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, where the couple lived.

But with their only daughter away for the summer, the Schluters “kind of cruised around,” staying at bed and breakfasts for a few weeks. “On the way home we were in some of the southern suburbs of Minneapolis, and, there was a beautiful four-square house for sale and we both said, wouldn’t that make a cool B&B?” Tami said.
