Those hoping to stay at Meri Brown’s B&B will have to continue to wait. Lizzie’s Heritage Inn will not open during the month of June. According to the bed and breakfast’s Instagram page, the current plan is to reopen on July 5th, 2020. This, however, is assuming nothing changes between now and then regarding the virus in the state of Utah.
Lizzie’s Heritage Inn confirms it will remain closed on Instagram
According to The Sun, an Instagram user took to the bed and breakfast’s comments to ask if they had opened back up yet. Unfortunately, the bed and breakfast responded that it was not open just yet.
“We are still closed until July 5th.” The B&B responded.
As Sister Wives fans know, the B&B remaining closed cannot be easy for Meri Brown and her family. Especially when the family is rumored to be struggling financially.
When did Meri Brown originally decide to close the B&B?
It was toward the middle of May that Meri Brown announced the closure of her bed and breakfast.
At this time as things seem to be loosening up a bit, I’ve been putting some deep thought into how to move forward with the B&B. In the interest and safety of my staff, in particular my sweet mom who so graciously and lovingly welcomes all our guests on a daily basis, as well as the local southern Utah community, we will not be accepting any bookings until further notice.”
Toward the end of the announcement, Meri explained it was a decision she made in “good conscience.” She explained she just would not have felt right about leaving the B&B open under the current circumstances.

Over the past weeks and months during the current pandemic, I've kept a close eye on Utah guidelines for travel recommendations and possible restrictions for closures in the hospitality industry. At this time as things seem to be loosening up a bit, I've been putting some deep thought into how to move forward with the B&B. In the interest and safety of my staff, in particular my sweet mom who so graciously and lovingly welcomes all our guests on a daily basis, as well as the local southern Utah community, we will not be accepting any bookings until further notice. We are also not conducting ANY tours at this time. I feel it a duty to do my part in limiting the potential spread of COVID-19 and I can't, in good conscience, continue to keep the inn open at this time. As a small, family-run inn, I appeciate all your continued kindness and support. Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times. The inn and staff miss the guests that keep our home so lively and we look forward to when we can all commune safely together again. @lizzies_heritage_inn 💙💙💙 #LivingMyWhy #BecauseICan #LoveWhatIDo #LoveWhoIAm #LizziesHeritageInn #BedAndBreakfast #Family
The history of Lizzie’s Heritage Inn
It was back in 2017 that Meri Brown founded the Lizzie’s Heritage Inn. Unfortunately, Meri currently lives in Arizona with her husband Kody and her children. So, she is not able to run the Inn directly. Fortunately, her mother runs the establishment for her.
On Sister Wives, fans watched Meri ask the family for $40,000 so she could pay the rest of the down payment on the establishment. The wives supported her. But, Kody Brown didn’t. He did not see a bed and breakfast as a wise investment. It just wasn’t a “big moneymaker” in his opinion.
Kody wanted to know if he would get to help make decisions on running the B&B because he invested in it.
Meri Brown shut that down.
This is my baby. They don’t care about the house or the bed and breakfast business. I want to run my own business my way.”
Unfortunately, Kody Brown did not have enough money to give Meri to put into the business at the time. She, however, was able to make the money on her own.
Moreover, despite Kody Brown’s reservations… The B&B has done very well since she opened it.
