We opened July 1, 2020 and it has been a year of an amazing journey! Hee Haw!!
WELCOME TO MOE & WILLIE’S B&B AND GIFT SHOP
We are happy you stopped by to check us out and we are looking forward to your stay at our B&B.
MOE AND WILLIE’S B&B AND GIFT SHOP IS A PLACE YOU CAN STILL BE A KID, IT’S NOT THE HILTON, WE OFFER A UNIQUE BARN EXPERIENCE!
WE ARE A NEW B&B IN COLUMBIA COUNTY, MAGNOLIA, AR CELEBRATING JULY 1ST OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY
We (Jim & Julie Nicholson) at Moe & Willie’s B&B, want to introduce ourselves to those who are just now learning about Moe & Willie’s B&B and Gift Shop and have not been following our journey to restore a 70+ year old red barn on our property for the last 5+ years. We have a Facebook page that we have been sharing our journey of making our dream come true. Please visit our page FB page https://www.facebook.com/Moe-and-Willies-B-B-and-Gift-Shop-743823042459823
Moe & Willie’s B&B and gift shop is located in the piney woods of south Arkansas on 7 acres.. It is located in one of the oldest communities (Calhoun) in Arkansas, older than Magnolia and El Dorado. Calhoun is 6 miles east of Magnolia. Our B&B is a perfect place to turn off the phones, relax, chill out in your very private room, with your private entrance and patio area with table, chairs, and a bench.
So, we have this old red Arkansas barn built in the 1940’s on our property. Seven + year’s ago, Moe and Willie lived in our BIG old RED ARKANSAS BARN.. They had it all to themselves. Moe and Willie are our pet donkeys. We decided the BIG OLE’ RED ARKANSAS Barn is too BIG for Moe and Willie and we decided to restore the barn and turn the barn into a B&B with a Gift shop.. We also designed and built a room for Moe & Willie in the barn.
Yes, our guest will be sleeping with Moe and Willie in the BIG OLE’ ARKANSAS RED barn. Though Moe and Willie will have their own separate quarters, our guest will be able to watch the donkeys from a picture window inside their own private rooms.
Our guest enjoy being able to feed Moe & Willie chips, during their stay.
Moe & Willie LOVE Mexican Chips.. With our help, many of our guests have loved to groom, hug and pet Moe and Willie. We also offer, for those who want to learn more about donkeys a detailed understanding about a donkeys personality, nature, care and upkeep. It is an option.
We have two guest rooms with private baths and have named each room, so they have their own personality and comfort of feeling like you are at home. Both rooms offer WIFI, Satellite TV, Coffee Bar, Mini Fridge and Microwave and small Ice Maker. We offer our B&B guests use of an outside ice chest for those who stay with us for several days. Many have brought their cold drinks, hot dogs and marshmallows to cook on our fire-pit during their stay. Many of our B&B Guests have loved sitting around the fire-pit and making family memories. Please let us know when booking if you are interested in the ice chest or sitting around the fire-pit.
The St. Mandi Bear Room, named after our much loved St. Bernard, but is no longer with us. Mandi Bear’s head shot, primitively painted on the wall of the St. Mandi Bear Room, gives honor to her by naming this awesome room after her. The St. Mandi Bear Room has a king size bed and a separate room with 2 twin beds. The private bathroom has a very nice TIN walk-in shower.
The Betty Boop Room. Why name a room in an ole’ Red Arkansas Barn, after Betty Boop? Well, because when you look out your picture window at Moe and Willie, you will see a primitive painting on an old barn door (door no longer in use) of Betty Boop. This was painted a few moons ago, because the old barn door was built out of old lap boards, and has a natural hole in the door that looks like Betty Boop’s lips.. LOL It was painted by me (Julie) when we first moved here 16+ years ago, just because. LOL Betty looks like she belongs there.
We are folks who love to travel and we always try to find B&B’s to stay in when we do travel. Our B&B experience through the years, we hope has given us the knowledge and experience to offer not only a place for folks to stay, but a place that feels at home, is clean and also has a charm about it, like no other place. We hope all our guest will continue to return year after year. Our first year open, we have had several of our guest return for a second, third and fourth visit. We are proud to have maintained a 5 ***** Star Rating and our goal is to always stay there.
Moe and Willie’s B&B and Gift Shop is not for those who are NOT country at heart or do not like the laid back life. In many ways, we would compare staying in our old Arkansas red barn, much like a farm experience, but with the luxuries of home. We are located 6 miles from Magnolia, Arkansas, a quaint southern town that has a historical square with many shops, restaurants and antique stores. Magnolia also has several other places to discover away from its Historical Square. We at Moe and Willie’s B&B love to point our guest to local points of interest and things to do in our South Central Region of Arkansas.
Many local and regional festivals in our area from Magnolia, Camden, El Dorado, AR and being so close to the Louisiana and Texas borders, there is always something to do. We know some of the best kept secrets of things to do. But, you might be one who would love to get away from it all and do nothing, and take the time to relax at our little hobby farm around the pool or relax in the Chicken Coop and playing games with your loved ones.
We have some of the best fishing and hunting in our region too and hope we get a few Hunters, Fishermen and women will come check us out.
We also offer corporate rates to those who are here on business in our area and would love to stay at a place you will feel like you are on vacation, while working. We also offer discounts for travelers needing a long term stay. Call us at 870-904-1114 for the details.
Again thanks for stopping by and we hope you will book a reservation and come meet Moe and Willie!
Our Gift Shop opened, always for our guest!
We are a kid friendly B&B and have rules and age limits for children. Moe & Willie’s B&B is not a place for babies and toddlers and we require all children be at least 6 years old, know how to swim or be with an adult who knows how to swim and be responsible for the child in the pool. Our pool is not a diving pool, and all guest swim at their own risk. If you have children and plan to book at Moe & Willie’s, please call us before booking, to make sure this is a place that your family will enjoy. Our goal at Moe & Willie’s B&B is always to provide a safe place for all.

Fourth of July Message
Happy Fourth of July! We wish everyone a very special day today as we celebrate our Great Nation!
Sharing on this great day, our One Year Anniversary in Business! Yep, can you believe it has been one year since we opened to the public, our Labor of Love – Restoring an ole’ Red Arkansas Barn?
July we at Moe & Willie’s B&B celebrate 1 year in business and we put this video together to look back to our amazing year!
We still can’t believe we accomplished our dream, a dream to restore our Ole’ Red Arkansas Barn into a B&B… A Labor of Love that took 6+ years.
Our first guest were our Guinea Pigs in June last year. We had several Guinea Pigs win a free night stay and they were ALL very helpful in giving us pointers and confidence to finally become Inn Keepers, opening up to the public.
July 1st our very first paying guest were Tom and Jill from Granbury, Texas and guess what? They are coming to see us again the end of July!
Hee Haw!!! 🧑🏼 we are loving being Inn Keepers!
Can you believe we have had 200 + stay with us in 2020-2021 ? We are blessed, we actually are living our dream…. owning a B&B! ️
