HomeAway, the online vacation rental marketplace, announced today the acquisition of BedandBreakfast.com. The deal further positions HomeAway as a leader in the online real estate rental space. The terms of the deal were undisclosed but HomeAway has said they will continue to operate the B&B site as its own independent brand.

BedandBreakfast.com was founded in Austin, Texas, in 1995 growing into a top travel site listing more than 10,000 B&Bs across 100 countries.  The site specializes in providing travelers with a way to have a more personal travel experience for a weekend getaway, business trip or extended vacation.

As a big fan of HomeAway, I am excited to hear about this deal as it opened my eyes to another site that I could potentially use the next time I travel.
