Take a look at this sneak peak of “Checked Inn”… OWN’s new docu-series featuring entrepreneur Monique Greenwood and the couples who visit her family-run, upscale bed and breakfast. This exciting new show will premiere on Tuesday, November 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and will air regularly on Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, beginning on November 25.
In 1995, Monique Greenwood pursued a newfound love for hospitality by opening her first B&B in Brooklyn, NY while also working as a magazine editor at Essence. Today, Akwaaba Bed & Breakfast Inns is the most successful B&B business on the east coast and Monique remains the hands-on force behind it. She runs her now four inns the only way she knows how-as the heart and soul, the everything planner and the innkeeper. Ever-helpful, Monique even finds herself offering advice to her guests when they confide in her.
Set at Akwaaba’s Mansion at Noble Lane in the Poconos, Pennsylvania, this former Woolworth estate is where couples go to push back the world, re-ignite passion and celebrate life’s most exciting events. Things may not always go smoothly, but Monique-with Glynn under her wing-and the hard-working staff, make sure their guests have an experience they’ll never forget. Celebrity guests include two-time Grammy® Award-winning singer/songwriter Peabo Bryson, black hair care entrepreneur Lisa Price of Carol’s Daughter and Pastor John Gray and his wife Aventer.
