Property description

Prairieside Cottage is an idyllic family-friendly retreat nestled in the heart of the Flint Hills of Kansas. It is located in the tiny and energetic creative community of Matfield Green. The property is adjacent to town and privately situated with 8 acres of beautiful tallgrass prairie beside the cottage. Stargazers will delight in the rural location of Prairieside Cottage which has spectacular night skies within a truly dark site for astronomical observation.

Nature lovers, artists and vacationers looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway will enjoy Prairieside Cottage. The main house features a full kitchen, dining room, living room, office space, bedroom and bathroom (with a deep soaking tub), as well as a custom loft space that is perfect for reading and dreaming. The property also has a quaint one-room studio building that can be used as an artist’s or writer’s studio or an extra bedroom.

Families and children are welcome. Nature walks are possible on the property, which hosts abundant wildlife and a variety of plants and grasses. Trains run close by, art galleries are just around the corner, the sky is a constantly beautiful canvas, and there are many local attractions and historical sites to explore in the area.

The cottage is newly remodeled and welcomed the first guests in May 2014.
