Welcome to The Grandview Inn
Hi, we're the Poe Family! Thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to hosting you and sharing our beautiful historic home with you. Our family moved to Pawhuska in 2012 and it quickly became our hometown. Now, seven years later, we are moving back to the big city and looking for the next owner inn-keeper to pass the torch on for the next season of this magnificent home. Some folks may think we are a bit crazy for wanting to give away our beloved inn, but we couldn't be more excited to see another family or couple enjoy a house that brought us together as a family and gave us some of the best memories of our lives.
If you are staying with us, we look forward to taking great care of you and making your stay incredibly memorable! If you've dropped by our site to enter to win this fantastic bed and breakfast, we say hello and best wishes! We are looking for someone who loves people, food, hospitality and small town America as much as we have! Hope to see you soon.....

About the Inn
In 1923 The Grandview Inn was brought to life as a private residence here in the prominent and bustling town of Pawhuska Oklahoma. Once called the Paris of the "Midwest", Pawhuska has remained a landmark for historic and legacy rich activity as the home of the Osage Tribe of Oklahoma and The Tall Grass Prairie Reserve. For many years to home hosted several families including the well known Drummond family with Food Network Star Ree Drummond and her husband Ladd residing in the home for several years. In 2004 Charlotte Rhineheart, a lover of historical homes, purchased the home from the Drummond Family and envisioned it become a legit bed and breakfast. After years of aging, the home received new windows, central heating and air (for the first time), floor refinishing and an interior design facelift. In 2011 Charlotte relocated to to Kansas City to be with her family and the house was used for short term rentals.
In 2012 Steven and Tiffany Poe purchased the home and opened it as the new Grandview Inn Bed and Breakfast.
Native to the Grand Lake region of Oklahoma, Steven and Tiffany have always had a love for hospitality and entertaining. After relocating to Tulsa in 2009 for business opportunities, the couple had no plans to leave the conveniences of a large city and were happy living the Tulsa lifestyle. However after a series of unique events and viewing the home during a private party, Steven and Tiffany made the decision to relocate and assumed the honor of being the inn’s new keepers.
The Grandview Inn now hosts traditional bed and breakfast enthusiasts as well as those traveling from out of town to visit the Pioneer Woman Mercantile or the Tall Grass Prairie! The inn also plays host to local gatherings, private dinners and receptions. With recent influx of tourism to the town, the Grandview now hosts folks from all across the United States and around the world. In late 2018 the Inn was returned to it's original color of colonial white and black shutters were added as well as a brand new bright green roof.
As their seven year commitment to the inn comes to a close, The Poe's began to dream of the possibility of releasing their inn through the option of a contest. Hence, The Grandview Inn B&B Giveaway 2019 was born. Steven and Tiffany's heart is to see the inn continue to host and care for guests well beyond their departure from Pawhuska. Blessing the new owners with a debt-free successful business is more than they could ever hope or imagine as a happy ending to an incredible seven years.
If you have ever wanted to own a bed and breakfast... well now is your chance! If you love people, food, hospitality and tourism then this could be the opportunity of your life! Enter today for a chance to be the next inn-keeper of The Grandview Inn!
