There are no interruptions, no other guests wandering through, and no intrusions by our staff - except when requested. The rare privacy, unparalleled service, and stunning beauty of this special place will exceed your highest expectations.
The RetreatHouse is available for general rental Sunday- Thursday. However, Thursday- Sunday it is ONLY available in combination with the Blue Sage Barn Event Space (seats up to 200 guests), for a 3-night experience. Please inquire for specific pricing of this weekend experience, as rates do increase, and vary month to month.
Our Story: The dream and vision for Prairiewood began over 10 years ago. It all started with a simple vision for saving some of the native tallgrass prairie landscape in and around Manhattan, Kansas. Along the way, we became more and more compelled by the idea of using the prairie to provide a place where the values of the land can find their way into the hearts and souls of its visitors–a place where the senses are awakened, perspective is renewed, and imagination is inspired. We have worked diligently over the past 10 years to bring together all the pieces for such a place. We have acquired land surrounded by native prairie ecology, created exquisite accommodations and meeting space, blazed miles of walking trails, and assembled a team of tremendous individuals.
From our first-class, carefully appointed accommodations to our world class guest service, everything at Prairiewood has been thoughtfully assembled to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience. We would be honored to host you.
Capacity & Uses: The floor plan of Prairiewood is highly adaptable to a wide range of uses and events. A first-class, fully wired audio/visual meeting room will seat up to 30 guests, with a wide array of seating and table options available. Banquet seating throughout the venue is offered for up to 45 guests. There are 4 Bedroom/bathroom suites available on-site, an additional 6 luxury temporary beds available. Additionally, Prairiewood's StoneHouse (www.vrbo. com/588540) and HomePlace (www.vrbo. com/761266) also serve as additional lodging options. Whether a corporate retreat or rehearsal dinner, a family reunion or K-State sporting event, we would be honored to show you why Prairiewood is the region’s premier venue for those seeking a truly distinctive experience.

About the owner: We fell in love with the Flint Hills tallgrass prairie when we each came to Manhattan to attend K-State. Now, some 20 years later after graduating from KSU, we have made the Flint Hills our home - and Prairiewood our labor of love. Together with our 3 children, we enjoy the charm of Manhattan living, KSU sports, and the great outdoors of this special place.
Why the Owner Chose Manhattan, KS, USA:
Praireiwood is very versatile. It is intentionally intimate, unusually private, and thoroughly welcoming. While just next to town, there is feeling of being a million miles away. The prairie has a subtle yet profound beauty that tends to calm our nerves and inspire our dreams. We always feel refreshed after spending time there, whether waking the trails or sipping coffee in the sun room. We take great pleasure in sharing this very special place which we so love.
