I just got home from an open house in nearby Walnut Ridge where my friends Charles and Jackie Snapp have just opened Hotel Rhea, with 4 guest suites on Main Street. The suites include living areas with electric fireplaces and large flat screen cable TVs, kitchenette, bedroom and bath. One of them is a two-bedroom suite with windows over Main Street. The one-bedroom suites have a view of the old train depot.
The Snapps have definitely stepped up the accommodation offerings in the Walnut Ridge/Hoxie metroplex where their only competition is one 1940’s style motel. I predict their suites (one is handicapped accessible, the others are on the second floor) will be full most of the time!
