Ree Drummond has invited you into her family home (via her blog and Food Network show), her shop and restaurant, and even her ranch—and now, the Pioneer Woman wants you to come stay with her at the Boarding House, the new hotel she just opened with the Marlboro Man.
Yep, y'all read that right: Your favorite Food Network star (and new "cover 'gal") and her husband, Ladd, finally opened their new business in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, for reservations. It's already , and we can see why. Each room, ranging from $149-$279 per night, is completely unique—and completely gorgeous!
Here's what we know about the Pioneer Woman's exciting new property, how you can .
What is Pioneer Woman's new hotel called?
Throughout the renovations, the Pioneer Woman referred to the building as a "boarding house" since, as she , "hotel doesn't sound right." The name must have stuck, because Ree revealed the hotel's official name, the Boarding House, in the caption of new photos and launched an Instagram account and website.
The Boarding House is open now!
Pioneer Woman is officially accepting reservations, but act fast: The rooms are booking up fast.
"It has been such a fun project from start to finish (well...some days more fun than others, ha!) and we're so excited to be welcoming our first guests," Ree wrote on Instagram April 12. "Our website is live () and you can browse the different rooms and see the details of the special experience we hope to give every single person who stays here. We would love to see ya in Pawhuska!"
Where is the Boarding House located?
Right down the street from "The Merc!" That means it's basically bound to be fully booked year-round. Since opening its doors last fall, has attracted 6,000 visitors a day on average—and that's in a town of only 3,477 (as of 2016). Now with a hotel, soon some of those people will have a place in town to stay.
The Drummonds opted to renovate rather than build.
Pioneer Woman and Marlboro Man have already proven they're pros at breathing life back into old buildings. They did so with the old Osage Mercantile, now , and the Boarding House, as well as the building adjacent to it, will surely follow suit.
It's a "cowboy luxury" hotel.
There are eight rooms.
"The three story building is going to be an 8-room hotel with suites so comfortable and cozy, Marlboro and I are going to want to move into one," Ree explained. "We won't, of course, but just think of the reduction in chores it would mean!!!!"
Each room has a theme.
In the Pioneer Woman's , she listed the "Tackroom" (photos above, complete with coffered ceilings and stained paneling), "Butterfly Room" (with the most beautiful bathroom tile you ever did see), and "Drugstore Room." Three more rooms were revealed in March: the "Ranch Room," "Photograph Room," and "Emerald Room" (bathroom below). And now, we know the names of the others: the "Boudoir Room," and "Prairie Room."
The Boarding House used to be a drugstore.
Inside the Boarding House, an old mural reading "Puryear's Drug Store" recalls the history of the structure. The Pioneer Woman plans to keep it, making that section the common area.
They're preserving what they can...
Expect to see multiple old murals from the space's drugstore days, salvaged ceiling tiles repurposed in interesting ways.
...and implementing gorgeous new designs.
We already told you about the tile in "Butterfly Room," but check out some of the other bathroom floors below. The whole hotel sounds stunning. The second floor boasts a balcony that doubles as an awning for the ground floor—an idea Ree said they borrowed from a building in downtown Houston. There will be ferns hanging from the railings, she added. The layout of the bathrooms will be inspired by another hotel, which the Drummonds stayed in recently ( on her blog post).
It's Marlboro Man's "baby."
Ree stresses that Marlboro Man is the main man behind this particular project. "I have had almost zero to do with it aside from an occasional 'Oooooh, neato!'" Ree writes. "The helpfulness of my contributions can not be underestimated. Ha."
As for the two-story building next door, also owned by the Drummonds? The Pioneer Woman hints that they have "separate plans for this." Perhaps this is where she's been focusing her efforts while Marlboro Man works on the hotel ... we'll report back when we know!
