About the property

Country House / Chateau, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-11)

Tranquil setting just outside the city limits of Hutchinson, KS. Built on the west edge of a five acre pond. Great for fishing, swimming, or just laying back and relaxing. Located less than one mile from the Hutchinson Zoo, Hutchinson dirt bike/ATV track, Carey Park, and Carey Park Golf Coarse. Within two miles of the Hutchinson Downtown Shopping, The Mall and Mall 8 Theaters, Underground Salt Museum, Hutchinson Sports Complex, Cosmophere Space Center, Kansas State Fair Grounds, and many fine Dining Establishments. We could probably fill two or three pages of different things you can do while you are staying at the Pond-a-Rosa Inn, but you will have to come and stay to see what we are talking about.

Hunting: The pond is just out the front door about 20 yards AND it is in the county and ducks and geese flock to it on a regular basis. Can't shoot in the city, but OK in the county. Don't miss out on this opportunity before it is GONE. We do allow pets and hunting dogs; JUST NOT IN THE HOUSE.

There are only 6 houses within a one half mile radius of the lodge and three of them belong to us. this means plenty of room to stroll around and relax. Play tennis on the tennis court or shoot some hoops on either of the two basketball goals. Go fishing, swimming, paddle boating, or just relaxing on the more than 100 yards of sandy beach area along the edge of the pond. We do offer paddle boat rentals, and horse back riding, or you might want to try out our zip line rides.

Rental rates are as follows; for up to 6 adults and 4 children. More than these numbers will require additional fees. Call 316 772-7708 for more info.

1 night = $250

2 nights @ $250/night = $500

3 nights @ $250/night = $750 less 10% discount leaves a total stay of $675

About Randy Lubbers

Owners are Randy Lubbers and LeAnna Doane who also run Lubbers Equipment Inc. of Hutchinson. We sell fertilizer equipment as our main business and operate the Pond-a-Rosa Inn as a second business. Also featured in the photo is our dog 'DeOhGe' who works very hard at helping out here at the Pond-a-Rosa Inn. Ask us about his abilities.

Randy Lubbers purchased this house in 2010

Why Randy Lubbers chose Kansas

These two properties are located on this pond and we decided if we owned the second property we could make sure we did not have any problems or conflicts with our neighbors. Also the house we live in was originally built as a bar which Randy had visited a few times when he was younger. It carried some sentimental value to him. It also has a very country atmosphere yet a convenient location close to shopping and dining. Which both of us enjoy very much.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the Pond-a-Rosa one day and night and were thoroughly relaxed even though we had a rough ride towing a trailer for more than 4 hours. The hosts were helpful and friendly so that we felt like we had come to a relaxing atmosphere including a comfortable home with nice furnishings and comfortable beds. The lake and beach were a great surprise, and we especially enjoyed the ducks, geese, and horses. A gentle breeze and the peaceful country setting made our outdoor supper into a good memory we shall enjoy. The location has easy access to many points of interest, a helpful plus! We would love to stay there again.

My family arrived to the place and we had a gathering of family from all over to visit us. We had easy access to all amenities and the owners were extremely friendly and hospitable. The house was clean and well cared for just as shown in the photographs online and there were home supplies provided such as dishes, silverware etc. The rope swing diving board and slide were tons of fun. The zip line and the paddleboats were enjoyable as well. Our daughters rode horses in the evening which was an amazing experience. Later each evening we sat by the fire pit talking and laughing while we enjoyed the cool evening breezes and the warm glowing fire. Our visit was not long enough, we would have loved to stay longer. We were so comfortable and treated so well, we will be back again and again.

Some very neat places to visit in the area are the Salt Mines, Zoo, and Cosmosphere. Downtown Hutchinson is beautiful old and quaint. A great place to eat while there is the Carriage House. Good food fresh baked goods etc.

Interesting, but fun

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here over a Memorial Day weekend. Honestly we were a little taken aback by the property.. Kind of a hap hazard petting zoo scenario with lots of equipment and random things everywhere. It did seem like recent flooding/rains had changed the landscape a bit. The house was nice, a little musty and dark. But nice and had everything we needed. The playground was great for our two toddlers and the baby goats following us around provided endless entertainment. The beds were comfy. The shower was odd but has great pressure. The owners were very kind, even brought over fishing poles for my husband to use. Overall it was a nice stay. If I'm ever in Kansas again I'd probably book it again.

Quaint and peaceful...

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for a quaint place to get away thats just far enough from civilization, this is the place. Sunrise over the pond, a nice evening dip in the hot tub, basketball/playground for kids...The place itself needed a little sprucing up, but as it was just the close of winter, I understand. Randy was a text away and very accommodating.

Beware of the nosey goats!

Hutchinson is minutes away and has many great businesses for food, shopping, and entertainment. Do visit the salt mine!

Amazing fun-filled / relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the property. Our families got together for a high school graduation ceremony. Most of us stayed in the spacious big house and then used an RV hook up for my folks camper. It was wonderful to have everyone together and not separated and going stir crazy at a hotel. TV's in every room, lots of comfy couches, 3 bathrooms! The rope swing and basketball court were the biggest hits! The kids went horseback riding and paddle boating and loved it! Well worth the money!
