J.R. & Liz love Downtown Knoxville and bought a historic home in the area the summer of 2014. They renovated the basement studio the following summer and registered The Glenwood Inn as an official Bed & Breakfast with the city of Knoxville. They very much enjoy meeting all the travelers who come visit.
J.R. is passionate about fly fishing and hooking trophy trout/bass/carp - any BIG fish. Liz loves cooking, art, music & natural healing. J.R. and Liz welcomed their first baby in September 2015 and their second in February 2017. They both long to travel together to experience new cultures and enjoy time with family & friends.
