Paradise Garden opened its original AirBNB in 2014. Since then, the bed and breakfast has produced hundreds of satisfied guests.
In fact, 101 guests stayed there in just 2017.
The AirBNB opened across the street on the side of the house that also held the Paradise Garden office. Since then, Paradise Garden has moved the office to the museum and is working on building an additional room for guests beside the original room where the office was located.
Renovations are also being done on the original room. They have added central heating and air to the house where the rooms are located. The end of March has been designated as the target for the work being done.
“That may be a little tight, but that is the goal,” Donnie Davis, a Paradise Garden employee said.
Officials at the Garden said that during 2017 out of the 101 trips, 97 percent of the ratings were five stars.
“People really like it,” Davis said. 
One of the biggest draws in regard to the AirBNB is the fact that guests have unlimited access to Paradise Garden – even after dark.
“People really seem to like that when we give them a key,” Davis added. “Most people take advantage of the perk and go over there at night. It think that is the reason people like it so much.”
Davis said that Paradise Garden gives the guests a restaurant map for local restaurants in which to eat. A lot of them also go hiking either at Sloppy Floyd State Park or Cloudland.
Guests usually book the rooms a month or two in advance of the time they plan on coming. They register at AirBNB online to begin the process.
“If they are on a trip, then they can look for places along the way,” Davis added.
 
FIRST BEGAN
The AirBNB began when Jordan Poole was at Paradise Garden, according to former board of directors member Eddy Elsberry.
“It had always been like an artist in residence cottage and then Jordan talked with someone and suggested it as an AirBNB,” Elsberry said. “It was brought up that we could do it so we approved it.”
