Insurance Coverage?

From “Ask Kit!”:

Q: We are in the process of establishing a gorgeous new B&B and would appreciate some guidance on what companies offer good insurance programs for B&B’s at competitive rates.

A: Man, you have asked a loaded question! From what I can tell there aren’t any “reasonably” priced insurance packages. Check Yellow Brick Road ( and at the PAII site ( for a list of B&B insurance agents.

And when you are comparing your coverage, be sure you are comparing apples to apples — and check the fine print to make sure you are covered in your location (I’ve heard stories of someone buying insurance and when they filed a claim found that their location wasn’t covered becauase it was too far out of town!) — ouch!
