The bed and breakfast business is really a creature of the local zoning authority such as a city, town or county. The typical B AND B has a special use permit and restrictions set forth by the local authority. The other element of the rules of the B and B relate to their published policies and contract with third party banks and credit institution if you paid with a credit source. You should review the web site or reservation language you were offered at the time of the booking and contact the credit card company for a refund request. If you contact the local zoning administrator he or she can inform you of the local conditions imposed by the government and if violations are occurring. This is a basic contract dispute as between a buyer and a seller. If there is a breach of the contract you can sue for a refund and damages in a small claims court.
