The Pounds' cozy inn is the realization of a dream come true. 
While living in New Orleans, Paul and Brenda took "over-flow" guests from two B&Bs on St. Charles.   This planted a seed that grew into a desire for a B&B of their own.  Brenda, who had traveled extensively with her football coach husband fondly recalled the sense of community pride her hometown offered, so when the two retired, they moved there and opened Corner Oaks in an 1896 Victorian.  Maintaining the home's original character, the couple renovated every room to make it suitable for modern living.  The Inn opened in 2000 and maintains a steady flow of guests.
