PHOTOS SISTER WIVES Meri Brown opens B&B Lizzie’s Heritage Inn

Sister Wives Meri Brown bed and breakfast Lizzie's Heritage Inn

TLC just released the first teaser trailer for the brand new season of Sister Wives, and in the clip Meri Brown drops a sizable bombshell (to me anyways!) when she reveals that she wants to open a bed and breakfast. Apparently Meri has turned her dream into a reality as she opened the Lizzie’s Heritage Inn in Parowan, Utah on Wednesday!

Meri posted a photo of the grand opening on Instagram and shared the announcement with her followers:

I am beyond excited to announce the opening of Lizzie’s Heritage Inn! We had the official grand opening and ribbon cutting on Dec 13. This is an old family home of mine, built by my great-great-grandparents in 1870 and occupied by 4 generations until it sold out of the family in the 1980’s. It has been a long time dream of mine to get the home back into the family, and after a lot of work, and when I say a lot, a mean a LOT, it is back in my family where it belongs! I am beyond blessed & excited!! #LivingMyWhy #Family #LizziesHeritageInn https://lizziesheritageinn.com/

Browntrepreneur Meri adds a little more about the property and its history with her family on the Inn’s website:

Built in 1870 by Meri’s great-grandparents, this was a family home for four generations, but was eventually sold out of the family. A more than 20-year dream of Meri’s was to bring the home back into the family and through a recent chance meeting, a unique opportunity presented itself and this dream was realized. I am so excited and beyond blessed to have had the chance to bring this home back into the family where it belongs. I have had so much fun redecorating it with my great-grandmother’s things, items that she made and created and can now be on display in her old home. I hope all our guests can feel the welcome that she, herself, would have given them!

The Inn is named after Meri’s great-grandmother Lizzie, who was one of the original owners. “Meri’s cherished great-grandmother, Lizzie, not only is reflected in the name of the inn, but her character is representative in the period furniture selectively added to many of the guest rooms; along with the great room shared by all our guests,” reads the “About” section for the Inn.

the Inn offers four different rooms, ranging in price (at the time of this post) from $125 to $155 a night. Here are some photos of each followed by links with even more pictures and information:

Still not sold? Lemme share the Inn’s pitch:

Escape the city and come to relax and unwind in a country environment in southern Utah, which offers couples the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. All of our accommodations are complete with deeply comfortable mattresses, period furniture, modern bath accommodations. In addition, you’ll find gas fireplaces, thick luxurious bed coverings, plump over-sized pillows, and antique four-poster beds. The walls in our rooms are papered in petit fleur coverings and a superb collection of 18th century photo art can be found throughout the inn.

I have to confess that I am a bit blown away by all this. The Inn looks AMAZING! I don’t think a simple “congratulations” are enough here, so let me add some 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 emoji! this kind of project takes SO MUCH work, and I’m guessing bed and breakfast dreams are in the top five least often achieved lol. (For example, there was another TLC reality star named Mary who explored the possibility of opening a bed and breakfast, and that didn’t work out so well.)

I love all the Brown family drama, but I am particularly excited to see how this all happened so quickly. Of course, drama and entrepreneurship will almost certainly cross paths when it is revealed whether or not Meri actually lives at the Inn now — which is a little less than three hours from the Browns’ new hometown of Las Vegas. I hope for Kody and Meri’s sake that she still spends most of her time in Las Vegas, but I hope for my sake that if I’m venturing through southern Utah and get a room at Lizzie’s Heritage Inn that Meri is there to hang out and sip wine with! 😉

OK, I will wrap up this post by dedicating this 93% not really appropriate Springsteen tune to Meri and to the success of the Meri-ot Hotel. (Just ignore Bruce’s spelling.)

    I think this is a cool new venture for her, but I’m wondering if she really thought it through.

  • Yep

    I’m happy for her. hearing Christine on the preview for the new season saying it will make Meri more disconnected to the family and all I could think is ok that’s a good thing. She only has 1 kid shes gone at college, her husband wont have any more kids with her because hes too busy knocking up his new wife that is now his legal wife. Meri isn’t important to him anymore. Christine just wants her around for a pay check and a free baby sitter. no thanks! Go Meri! I hope this makes you happy.

      None of that is true. If you even watch the show you’d know everything you just stated was you spreading rumors.
      A) Meri can’t have more children, she thought she wasn’t even able to have Mariah but thankfully she did. She would have to go through medical help to get pregnant and neither of them at this point in life wanted to go that route.
      B) they’re divorced so Kody was able to adopt Robyn’s children, Meri decided that’s what she wanted. Kody and Robyn had Solomon before they were legally married.
      C) None of the wives, Christine included asked her to babysit. Christine’s mother has been living with her and Truly is now in kindergarten anyway. Besides, her girls are older now and they older ones all watch the younger ones.
      Last but not least, all the wives think Meri has been disconnected but they’re all in agreement she should get the house. Christine was the first one to agree.

      It’s obvious you have no idea what you’re talking about so do the whole Brown family and their fans a favor and stop!

    no offense but the decor of the rooms is tacky and frumpy. Their names are just as bad. meri’s decorating prowess is about as good as her frumpy lack of fashion style

    • Samara A. Holton

      It was decorated from the time period of her great grandparents, including the furniture. That’s that makes it so special.

  • Amanda Knighly

    Compulsive phone sex and the extensive use of sex toys while Meri engaged with her on line lover in an affair has hardened the heart of Kody to her. Who can blame Kody after Meri embarrassed him and the whole family through her wonton actions which perverted their faith? Meri’s total disregard for the well being of Mariah is something that no child should have to suffer at the hands of her own mother. Meri has proven herself to be a woman of great deception and duplicity, causing untold anguish to those who once trusted and respected her. Meri looked people in the eyes and lied to their faces, but now the consequences of her shameful and despicable actions are a cold reality.

    Former “first wife” sure goes for bad clothing, bad sex and bad decorating. She was born with bad taste and has lived it. Has a penchant for mock food also. LOL

    I am very happy for Meri. I hope she finds a nice guy and leaves that Robyn worshiping Cody. He doesn’t care about her anyway and I’m sure he would be glad if she left.
    Go for it Meri!!! Live your life!!!

    It was sad watching Meri trying to get fulfillment in her marriage to Cody. He was emotionally unavailable and devoted all of his attention to Robyn. While I don’t condone Meri’s online affair, let’s face it, she was pretty lonely. I hope that she finds happiness in whatever she chooses to do. You go, Meri!
