Wonderful restaurants and farmer's market will keep you enchanted with regional offerings and fresh market gourmet choices. Our city parks have a wonderful location for family fun either swimming, water park, lap pools etc. Ask your hosts for a Convention and Visitor's Guide.


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About the owner: Paul and I have lived in Manhattan since 1972. We came here from Hutchinson Jr. College, completed our degrees in Finance and Early Childhood Education the year we were married in 1974. We've raised 3 children and now enjoy sharing our custom-built log home Bed and Breakfast with family and new friends.

          Why the Owner Chose Manhattan:
          We truly enjoy sharing our love of Kansas and the Flint Hills with our guests. Tours of the Konza Prairie Preserve can be a highlight of your stay. Planning weddings and special events is a passion we've acquired through expanding our business into our Event Center (Barn) and Meadow area for outdoor weddings. Many families rent the whole Inn and use our Event Center for lunches and dinners during their multiple-night stays. It has a fully equipped kitchen in the loft with seating for 80 to 100 or fewer than that for more intimate dining. We've created a half-court basketball area on the ground floor. We can also set up a volleyball net. We offer a unique setting for corporate meetings and have wi-fi connections there also.

          The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
          Quiet and peaceful, beautiful surroundings, and a view from every window is how our guests often describe their stay and the atmosphere God has provided in our natural setting between two ridges of the Flint Hills. A hearty breakfast will add to the lasting memories for first time bed and breakfast guests and experienced travelers alike. 'It's like being in a tree house with luxury' is one of the exclamations that is often uttered from our friends as they step into the Great Room.
