"Really, I give you a 4.75 rating. I really liked the south room. It is my 2nd time here. The obvious positives are the clean, well stocked rooms, great vistas, and if you are a train buff, what could be better? My little fussy negative is the extremely low beds which are hard for an older person to get out of. The trudge up the hill with all the gear is starting to get a little difficult also. Maybe make a few parking spaces on the south end of the units? Also, how about removing the hill to the west to improve the sunsets? Ha! Looking forward to our next visit."

"My husband son and I stayed at the Scenic View Inn as our first bed and breakfast experience. What an awesome experience. Diana and Paul treat you like family and the breakfast was incredible! We will definately be back! It was nice to be able to bring our 4 yr old son w us. He thourougly enjoyed their pets and the game room."

"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."

"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."
