Fans of the original Fixer to Fabulous know Jenny and Dave Marrs for their ability to take old, worn properties in desperate need of a makeover and renovate them in a way that previously seemed impossible. And now, with Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn, they’re doing something for themselves. While renovating an old 1800’s house, Dave and Jenny have their hearts set on turning it into a bed and breakfast. But can you stay at the Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn hotel?
The OG program is all about helping couples and families turn their homes for repairs into the homes of their dreams. This iteration on HGTV is more focused on Dave and Jenny’s personal project. And while it’s only a few episodes long, Fixer to Fabulous fans are here for it.

Jenny and Dave Marrs from ‘Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn’.
Dave and Jenny Marrs are building a real bed and breakfast on HGTV.
The Fixer to Fabulous spin-off is all about Dave and Jenny’s efforts to put the old house they bought for themselves to use. They had planned to buy and renovate the house on their own, but it wouldn’t be a true Marrs project if they didn’t let the HGTV cameras in on the process. No, the house is not intended to be sold and is not for a client. But Dave and Jenny’s bed and breakfast is still an important project for them.
“We immediately knew it was a cool house that we wanted to save,” Dave told HGTV of seeing the house and wanting to buy it right away. “We didn’t even know what we were going to do with it, we just didn’t want it to be taken down. So we bought it, really, without any plan.”

But even if the house is theirs, Dave and Jenny were able to share their renovation with the former residents of the house. Jenny told HGTV that they were able to show her progress to an 89-year-old woman who was born and lived in the house, although that is not shown in the series.
Can you stay at the ‘Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn’ hotel?

Although not yet available, there will be an Airbnb listing for the Welcome Inn and you will be asked to rent the entire house. It will be available for rentals from Monday, Wednesday and Friday only. While it’s not yet clear how much it costs to stay at The Welcome Inn, it’s still a unique experience for Fixer to Fabulous fans.
How many episodes does ‘Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn’ have?
Unlike the seasons of the original Fixer to Fabulous series, Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn has only four episodes. For some viewers, that’s not enough time to watch Jenny and Dave completely renovate this house.
But they chose not to change too much as they modernized the house. Much of the old charm remains, along with a few modern conveniences added to make The Welcome Inn a welcome escape for fans.
Watch Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on HGTV.
