Maureen leases a bed and breakfast in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and enlists Bobby and Carnie to help out.

Meanwhile, Bobby discovers something surprising while hunting for some moonshine.

  • 2. "Pigeon Idol" (August 22, 2008)

Ross Mathews asks the trio to serve as judges at a talent contest he is hosting. But as Maureen and Bobby prepare to take part, Carnie starts suffering from an uncomfortable and painful hemorrhoid that could threaten the event when the pain starts to control her mood.

  • 3 "Redneck Honeymoon" (August 29, 2008)

Maureen reveals her new Pigeon Manor Honeymoon fantasy package, which comes complete with mud baths, wraps and an on-call masseuse. Maureen and Carnie are tasked with the handling of operating the spa, while Bobby is in charge of making a couple's "fantasy requests" come true. The first couple checking in for the reservation is the Basil's, who appeared on CMT's Redneck Wedding. While Bobby attempts to fulfill the couple's honeymoon fantasies, which includes breakfast in bed, bathing nude in the river, playing in a tub of lime jell-o and witnessing a miracle, Maureen and Carnie must play host to members of the Animal Courtship Association, who just arrived for their annual conference in which the festivities includes an awards ceremony featuring "Best Females in the Animal World" and "Most Romantic Courting Ritual in the Animal World."

  • 4 "Easy As Pie" (September 5, 2008)

Maureen asks Bobby to escort guest of the manor to a bear hunt, so he enlists the aid of a local hunter.

A network of "coon dog" owners checks into Pigeon Manor for a local hunting contest. Maureen and Carnie are overwhelmed by the special requests and unsavory needs of this bizarre group. Bobby is not happy --- he only likes little dogs. The three discuss what to do about "doggie guests" at the inn because Maureen thinks the previous animals at the inn were a bad experience. She wants to begin a 'no pet rule' which means she has to figure out where to put the dogs. Carnie suggests rigging up a place for them to stay on the veranda. Bobby prefers they be far away.

  • 6 "And You Are?" (September 19, 2008)

A therapist is coming to the Inn to treat a group of patients. The patients turn out to be celebrity impersonators suffering from identity crises.

In this final episode, Pigeon Manor plays host to its first wedding, but it does not go off without a hitch. It is also discovered that the bride and groom represent the Dotson and Starr families, who are embroiled in a longstanding feud.
