Miranda Lambert Opens Ladysmith Bed and Breakfast in Oklahoma
Lambert created the inn in a historic 1901 brownstone in her adopted hometown of Tishomingo, about two hours south of Oklahoma City. The inn is just across the street from her popular gift store, The Pink Pistol.

The eight-bedroom establishment aims to offer guests a "taste of southern hospitality." That means being welcomed by the ‘innkeeper' with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies upon check-in, and a hot, country-style breakfast every morning. The hotel also features a lounge, New Orleans-style bar, tea room and dining room.

In keeping with its century-old heritage, Lambert preserved certain details including vintage photographs and furnished the inn with repurposed materials and antique pieces she's collected in her travels throughout the US.

Rooms are given playful names like 'Knaughty Pine', 'Flutterby' and 'The Sun Never Sets', while the decor sets off masculine elements like exposed brick, wood paneling, cowhide and even a Chevrolet tailgate headboard, against softer elements like pink chandeliers, angel wings, damask drapery and floral cushions.

Room rates range from $200 to $320 a night. And Lambert has said she hopes to host weddings, birthday parties and other events in the B&B's ballroom, which can hold 60-80 guests.

Activities in the area include shopping on the city's Main Street, nearby casinos and Lake Texoma.

Lambert is the latest celebrity to add hotelier to her resume. Other hotels owned by celebrities include:
