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 the seven year commitment to the inn approached, The Poe's began to dream of the possibility of releasing their inn through the option of a contest. Over the summer Steven and Tiffany's launch an essay contest to support this dream. Their goal was to bless the new owners with a debt-free successful business. After launching and hosting a contest for over nine months, the entry count to achieve this goal successfully did not happen. Over 1.5 million people saw the contest, but only several hundred entries were received.
After extending the essay contest an additional ninety days, the Poe's have made the decision to terminate the competition and issue the applicants gift certificates as promised.
With 2020 promising to be a fresh new and exciting year, the Poe's look with refreshed eyes toward what the future holds for The Grandview Inn. This beautiful home holds not only treasures of the past but also a bright hope for creating an exciting future! Come visit us and see the history and elegance of this beautiful historic home.
