Meet Our Family
Rhonda + Bryan
Rhonda is a DuQuoin, Illinois native and mother to 3 children, Savanna, Amelia and Andrew. Her journey as a musician led her and her two youngest children to relocate from Southern Illinois to Nashville, Tennessee in 2012. In those ten years she had the opportunity to facilitate numerous relationships in the music and entertainment industry. What started as a small business venture turned into multiple properties and a genuine love for "southern style" hospitality. Bryan and Rhonda met 10 years ago in Oxford, Mississippi while recording an album. Bryan is originally from Baltimore, MD, living the last three decades primarily in Tennessee and Mississippi and has 3 children of his own, Mason, Jackson and Maggie. Bryan's career over the years has been in music production and live entertainment. Throughout those years, he was also immersed in the trades. Painting led to drywall and plaster, which led to trim carpentry which led to cabinet, furniture and home restoration. These two now reside at the Bell Hill home and will be your host during your stay. Most days you can find Bryan cooking up a storm in the kitchen and Rhonda in the garden.
Savanna + Brandon
Brandon and Savanna were born and raised in Southern Illinois and both graduates of Southern Illinois University. They currently live with their two boys, Hudson and Hayes, in Carterville, Illinois.
They love Southern Illinois' close knit community and feel proud to continue raising their family here. Brandon currently works full time for liquor distribution company, BreakThru Beverage and comes out to the house to help with projects or when heavy lifting is needed. Savanna has worked as a photographer over the last 10 years, photographing countless families and over 150 weddings. She has worked alongside couples, vendors and venue owners while gathering a wealth of knowledge in all things wedding related. These two love Bell Hill and are so excited to bring it to full potential while preserving the beauty and incredible history throughout the property. Savanna is our official tour guide and marketing extraordinaire.
