(Washington, D.C.), and Akwaaba in the Bayou (New Orleans, LA) are a collection of upscale bed and breakfast inns owned and operated by husband and wife team Glenn Pogue and Monique Greenwood. Monique and Glenn fell in love with the idea of inns when they stayed at their first bed and breakfast back in the early '90s. As guests, they enjoyed the hominess and comfort of the bed and breakfast experience. Monique quickly discovered that innkeeping combined all of her personal passions – architecture and interior decorating, entertaining and meeting new people, and helping others create wonderful, lasting memories.
