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!

As in Pocahontas, local people in Walnut Ridge are investing in the restoration and develpment of their downtown area. It’s both fun and rewarding they’re finding.
