"Myself and three coworkers stayed here while in the area for work. This was the perfect place for us, lots of space with living areas on both floors. The design is very unique and fun. We were very pleased to find all the amenities we could want and a kitchen fully supplied with everything we needed to cook our meals. There is a lot of attention to detail which makes it a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. We really enjoyed the evenings on the porch overlooking the endless green hills and lake. Niki was wonderful and very helpful with any questions we had. Thanks for providing us with such a lovely home for our stay in Lawrence."

"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 house was a great location for our girls weekend in KC. It was close to Westport, Power & Light, and Boulevard Brewery which made our weekend very easy and convenient. The house was clean and cute and had plenty of space for us to enjoy ourselves. We would stay here again if coming back to KC!"
