Mentone has it all! Excellent restaurants, cozy cabins, bed and breakfasts, historic hotels, lodges, Desoto State Park, and of course camps. Mentone literally means, "musical mountain spring," and while natural cascades and rippling streams create a melody all their own, it's the sound of church chimes and harmonizing homefolk that draw the most interest, musically, today. As a special place, Mentone qualifies naturally! It simply has everything good you'd expect to find in a mountain environment -- clean streams; lush fragrant flora; unobstructed vistas; cool temperatures; and a certain peacefulness so hard to find nowadays. The air here is clear and crisp. There are no flashing neon signs -- no shopping malls -- no traffic jams.

Mr. Martin, a friend of Mr. Roach, spent a lot of money on the old home, and they name it Romar, Ro, for Mr. Roach, and Mar, for Mr. Martin's family. As the golden sun disappears beyond the white sandy beach, another memorable evening begins at The Original Romar House, Alabama's first seaside Bed&Breakfast Inn. Listen to the palm trees rustle in the wind, smell the salty air, abd fell the cool Gulf breeze while sipping a tropical drink on the the deck of the Purple Parrot Bar overlooking the beautiful Gulf Of Mexico.
BBAA Member Info
Come “INN” and let us introduce
The BED & BREAKFAST ASSOCIATION OF ALABAMA
The Bed & Breakfast Association of Alabama was organized in July, 1994 and has experienced immense growth. The Association began with fourteen charter members and today boasts a membership of approximately thirty five bed & breakfast inns throughout the state. BBAA has received statewide recognition as “THE” voice for our segment of the tourism industry in Alabama. It is the goal of the Association to promote awareness of B&B’s to the public and to seek out new members. The value of membership is found not only in the many services that are outlined below and available to each individual B&B owner/manager, but also in the invaluable networking within the association membership.
BBAA Brochure : Each Member B & B is listed in our yearly Brochure. New Members need to have their Application for Membership process started by August 1 to be considered for inclusion in next Brochure. Each Member receives Brochures to be displayed at their B & B and to pass out to local Chambers, etc. Brochures are also distributed at the 4 major Alabama airports: Huntsville , Birmingham, Montgomery & Mobile . Brochures are mailed to those requesting them from the BBAA Website. The Alabama Tourism Department (1-800-ALABAMA) distributes our Brochures, for display & distribution to prospective guests, at all 8 Alabama Welcome Centers and also forwards BBAA Brochures upon request.
Association Meetings & Conference : District Meetings are scheduled quarterly by the District Director. Annual meetings are held in January during our Annual BBAA Conference (discount for Members) which includes workshops (including Aspiring Innkeeper & Innkeeper Certification Workshops), roundtables and open sessions that provide opportunities for networking. Featured are special speakers such as travel writers and industry experts along with vendors of products and services.
Standards Program: BBAA has established high standards for membership. The Association requires membership to adhere to these standards. The Program is implemented by making it a part of the initial property inspection prior to membership and re-inspection every two years for membership. The BBAA designation and high standards are synonymous throughout the industry.
Public Relations Services: Services are available through the Alabama Tourism Department, national and international publications, with magazine articles written by local travel writers. By pooling our resources, BBAA is advertising to help promote all our Member B & B's throughout the State, Country and beyond! Southern Lady Magazine has run a full page ad for one year for BBAA starting with the November/December 2007 issue. BBAA Members were included in a back inside cover advertisement in the 2009 Alabama Vacation Guide, which is distributed worldwide by the Alabama Tourism Department. In 2010, BBAA will be included in the beautiful Stars of Alabama coffee table publication and also on Alabama's largest website AL.com.
Mentor Program: Mentors are available for members. Your participation is important. Join hands with an Association of Bed and Breakfast owners who network together. Will you join us?
