"This house was centrally located to everywhere we took the family! We are not great city drivers, but everything was super easy to get to from here. The house was clean and comfy. She even left a few cold beers in the fridge for us! Others commented on the train, but we didn't notice it at all. Great house, great value! We would be happy to stay here again!"

"It hurts to give Elaine's Prairie Home four stars because probably any other week of the year I'd hike it up to five. The place is exactly what it tells you it is: a little old frame home in a town that's barely a town. You can't get a Big Mac anywhere close or walk to the pool. But that wasn't a surprise. We knew that long before we pulled into Matfield Green. What we didn't count on--and should have--is the sheer power of the heat, lots of it, Death Valley-like heat, the kind of heat that shriveled crops up in a day during the dirty Thirties. That dear little place--it's beautifully decorated--simply isn't the place to be when the temps sky like they did during our long weekend there. Elaine's Prairie Home has wonderful air conditioners in both bedrooms--really good ones; but the rest of the house got hot. Really hot. So did we.
But it's a darling place, and it's in the middle of jaw-dropping landscapes so brightly emerald they'll take your breath away. I loved the region. The Flint Hills are simply immense. Nowhere else in the states is there anything like the tall-grass prairie all around Matfield Green. And right there in the middle is Elaine's Prairie Home, a place that clearly offers its love the region of the country where it sits so admirably.
It's a wonderful place, really--but not when it's hot."

"What a beautiful, serene setting any time of year. Though I only stayed by myself, the lodge was large enough for multiple families. It was an excellent and relaxing getaway. I went for long walks in nature (an unusually warm day for Jan) and enjoyed the sunshine on the back porch. Saw deer, pheasant, horses, cattle and tons of birds. When it finally got cold I went indoors for the warmth of the fireplace."

"This well-appointed cabin has everything you need to enjoy a blissful weekend - or more - in the rolling hills of Western Kansas. Sit on the porch and listen to all kinds of song birds, watch dear, rabbits, and other wild life, hear the beautiful rustle of cottonwoods trees. Inside, you'll find all the amenities of a fully equipped kitchen (including fresh cinnamon rolls and a dozen farm eggs the day we arrived - not guaranteed of course, but I'll bet Mary will have something special for you). Twin beds are comfy, bathrooms have several nice extras, and the cabin comes complete with it's own yellow lab should you feel inclined to sit a spell on the porch with him."
