                            If you love the Flint Hills of Kansas (and who doesn't?!) this barn/lodge on Lake Wabaunsee has something for every age group. I loved the serenity of sitting out by the water, walking around the lake, watching the young people fish and swim. We had one of our happiest reunions at this location. Everything about the lodge is clean, uncluttered, beautiful. The hosts are thoughtful, kind people who know how to be great hosts.

                            My husband and I returned to this beautiful place for the weekend. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy staying here! (We stayed here earlier in the summer while enjoying our family reunion.) The accommodations are so comfortable and relaxing. Nothing beats waking up and taking your coffee outside to enjoy the lake and the surroundings. I have stayed in many upscale hotels, but this one beats them all. Don't think twice. Just book it!

                            My husband and I spent four nights at Lakeview Barn for our 20th anniversary and had a wonderful relaxing stay. We loved being right on the lake. We are avid road cyclists, so every afternoon we went for a ride in the beautiful Flint Hills and then came back for a refreshing dip in the lake. We also enjoyed paddling the kayaks around. We don't fish or golf, but those activities are available. The cabin is darling and very comfortable, and the lake is beautiful and peaceful. We spent a lot of time just reading and enjoying the quiet. Before our arrival I was concerned about the lack of a stove, but the gas grill outside has a regular burner on one side, and the kitchen is well stocked. I used an electric skillet for our eggs in the morning and didn't lack anything I needed. The cabin is roomy and would be great for a family reunion, but it made a nice romantic getaway, too. Since we didn't use the upstairs, the owners gave us a reduced rate. The Manzes are really friendly and were helpful in every way, even offering the use of a golf cart. Their cabin and hospitality gave us happy memories of our 20th we will treasure.

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: Roger & Cindy Manz moved off the farm to Lake Wabaunsee. Roger always wanted to build a barn here, a testament to his farm heritage. Lake View Barn brings a down home flavor to your lake vacation. The rural setting of this Kansas lake will set your mind free. Beautiful in all seasons, bring your camera, perhaps a telescope and have a memorable stay!

                          Why the Owner Chose Lake Wabaunsee:
                          A kayak becomes a tiny secluded island. Hundreds of song birds supply musical accompaniment. And all at once, it feels like someone just pressed the world's pause button... Plan your vacation for Lake Wabaunsee's Lake View Barn.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
                          As the sun slips down, dimming the house lights, leaves shimmer with excitement in anticipation of what's next. A dock becomes front row seats for today's performance -- sunset!
