"A wonderfully updated home with everything you could possibly need. Owner went above and beyond in ensuring we had everything we needed. The location is perfect: minutes away from campus and a quick drive to downtown. The sun room behind the kitchen was the perfect place for enjoying our morning coffee. Also enjoyed the front porch swing in the evenings, the neighborhood was very quiet. The week we stayed was extremely hot & humid and the A/C did a great job of keeping the house comfortable. As others have mentioned, the 2 bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom downstairs, it was not an issue for us, but it is something to consider if one has difficulty navigating stairs. Overall, an enjoyable stay and would stay again."

"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."

"We had a wonderful time at the Wagon Wheel Ranch! The cabin was more than we expected and it accommodate all of us perfectly. There is nothing we would change at all! The kids had a wonderful time kayaking and even my 5 year old granddaughter got to do it on her own! When the storm came, it gave all of us a chance to sit in the living room and talk about coming back this summer. Taking a morning walk and listening to natures voices (birds and squirrels) was revitalizing. We will come back in a month or two and are recommending the place to our friends and family! I want to give a special thanks to Helen for letting me bring my special babies.
P.S. we did not find the trash bags until we were ready to leave, but there was plenty of plastic bags that we use for the trash, it is not a complaint, just an explanation of why we use grocery bags."

"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."
