Comfort-food expert Ree Drummond, aka the Pioneer Woman, is stepping outside of her comfort zone (ha) and into the hospitality business. The Food Network star is teaming up with her husband, Ladd Drummond, to open a hotel in their hometown of Pawhuska, Oklahoma, and it sounds like it will be the perfect Midwestern abode.
The blogger and cookbook writer has been at work renovating an old boardinghouse, and she took to her blog to share the latest construction updates. Of particular interest: the spacious balcony for guests to enjoy “smalltown goings-on” and the exposed brick walls with original murals intact. The hotel will have eight guest rooms, and according to Drummond, each will be unique.
An opening date for the quaint accommodations has not been set yet, so keep your eyes peeled (and plan your pioneering trip accordingly).
