Area Covered:
Listing Type/Number:
In 2004 search results indicated 2300 B&B listings; sampling in 2006 tends to show a much smaller number; unable to estimate how many have pictures. Listings are mostly contact and link; the "more information" link provides a features (amenities, not including spa or private bath) and a reservation request form. A few have thumbnails on the city page, but no more details.
