The Anchorage Alaska Bed & Breakfast Association (AABBA) has existed since 1987 when a small group of B&B owners organized to establish standards that would benefit the guest, the community and the individual hosts. To assure that each innkeeper provides quality service for guests, strict criteria for membership has been developed and includes the following:
- Current Alaska State business license.
- B&B permit with the Municipality of Anchorage.
- A scheduled peer inspection to assure that each member B&B maintains the highest standards of sanitation, maintenance and housekeeping.
- Posted tax collection permit.
