It's no secret that Wichita loves Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond.

Wichitans have frequently been among those who flock to downtown Pawhuska, Okla., to stand in line for as long as five hours to eat in her cafe, as previously reported by Dining with Denise. The town is a two-hour drive from Wichita.

The Mercantile — her massive shop, restaurant and bakery — draws long lines to a town of about 3,500 people. And if you're lucky, you might get to visit Drummond's lodge, where she films her Food Network cooking show.

Now, a trip to the town can easily become a weekend getaway thanks to Drummond's new hotel that opened last week.

The Boarding House is an eight-room "cowboy luxury" hotel, according to her website. The house is an old building that took nine months to renovate and is just down the street from The Mercantile.

Each of the eight suites — from The Ranch Room to The Butterfly Room — has its own character and charm.

The Photograph Room features a gallery of photos shot by the Pioneer Woman herself, and The Emerald Room has pops of saturated green color — and may be inspired by The Wizard of Oz, according to the website.

Other suites include The Boudoir, The Drugstore Room, The Prairie Room and The Tack Room.

A stay at The Boarding House includes personalized morning coffee, treats on your pillow, in-room dining, still-in-theater movies, a private balcony and complimentary wine and beer "Happy Hour."

A one-night stay in one of the eight rooms can cost between $149 and $279.

You can currently book your stay in The Boarding House through March 2019, but most of the dates are already booked or not available. Dates after March 2019 will open up for booking soon, but Drummond hasn't yet said when that will be.

The soonest available dates are April 22 and 23 — followed by dates in January 2019.
