She won! Meri Brown is the owner of Lizzie’s Heritage Inn in Parowan, Utah — the purchase of which was a big storyline previously on Sister Wives. Thankfully, her persistence in buying the property that once belonged to her great-great-grandparents paid off, and the bed and breakfast recently won an award from Official Best of America for being a “Best Country Inn” in Utah for 2019. Congrats!
“I’ll just leave this right here,” Meri, 48, captioned photos on Instagram from a video about the inn and its new honor. “After I do a little happy dance! 😍😊😄” She’s clearly very proud of her accomplishment, and she should be — the inn won the same award in 2018 as well, meaning she’s now taken the prize two years running.
The inn, seen in the video above, features plenty of beautiful antiques. The award video shows off a photo of Meri’s grandmother, Lizzie, as well as a hat she made. “She actually was a milliner,” Meri revealed. The house even includes a painting her grandma did.
The video continues to display the living room where a telegraph office once was according to the Sister Wives star’s narration. “The home has four rooms,” she explained, as the clip showed each space off. Specifically, Meri talked about the “Grandma Room,” which she said was once her grandmother’s own childhood bedroom. The video also displays a sweeping view of the beautiful backyard including a patio where Meri explained guests can enjoy breakfast in the morning and sunsets in the evening. The house truly is a beauty.
Previously on the TLC series, Meri sat down with her husband, Kody Brown, and his other wives — Janelle Brown, Christine Brown and Robyn Brown — to talk about buying the property that once belonged to her family, but they were a little reluctant. Kody, 50, for example, didn’t think the opportunity was all that lucrative. However, Christine — whom Meri has shared a strained relationship with in the past — was actually pretty supportive of Meri’s dream.
In a confessional on the show, Meri was quite protective of the inn and worried about her family getting too involved. “This is my baby,” she explained. “They don’t care about the house or the bed and breakfast business. Once I get this house done, I don’t want to have any more business meetings about my house. I want to run my business my way.” Whatever she’s doing, it’s clearly working out and people are taking notice! Would you stay at Lizzie’s Heritage Inn if you had the chance?
