About JAN DARRAH
We are a semi-retired, middle-aged local couple who has decided to share our beloved lake cottage when we are not using it. We have four children, seven grandchildren, and two Morkies. We love our family, the lake life, traveling, most outdoor activities, cooking, entertaining, and Sports, particularly KSU Football!!!
JAN DARRAH purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why JAN DARRAH chose Manhattan
My husband grew up at the lake, and I spent weekends on the lake with my family growing up, so it holds special memories for both of us. We enjoy spending time here relaxing, but decided to share our home with others when we are not using it. We have rented vacation homes for years and have thoroughly enjoyed them, so decided to try our hand at hosting. We have owned a business in Manhattan for many years, as well as rental properies, so have a maintenance crew and know how to provide good customer service. We traded a prior lake property that we have rented for this one, so are really "not so new" at renting (35 years in the real estate business) but new at vacation home renting.
What makes this Cottage unique
From the Covered front porch when you first walk up the steps, to the cottagey, homey feeling inside with its wood ceilings, brick fireplace, woodburning stove, comfortable furniture and beds, to the breathtaking views of the lake, large shade trees in the large yard full of perrennials, and private deck, I hope you can feel the love this special home has to offer. The decorations, books, curios, and nooks and crannies are provided to take you back to a simpler time and evoke memories of the past, while you enjoy the wonderfully upscale appliances and amenities, not to mention the breathtaking views...

Roomy cottage with a five star view
I rented this house while helping my daughter move to Manhattan for vet school. It was a lovely place to come back to after working hard all day. This was a very clean and comfortable house and wholeheartedly recommend the rental
Beautiful area and enjoyed the view of Tuttle creek lake. Everything was as described.
Lovely home and area. Worked out perfect for graduation celebration even with all the rain.
Such a beautiful area.
Great place to spend quality time with family.
Plenty of room and gorgeous views.
Easy to find. Close enough to town if you need supplies.
Owner was helpful and pleasant to work with.
Will definitely be back.
Barbara was a lovely guest, left the place perfectly tidy, and followed house rules to a T!! Hurry back and see us!!!
Lovey stay at the cottage. Homeowners had it decorated for our Christmas stay!
I love a story and this home has one to tell. If you are looking for a peaceful place to recharge or spend time with family, this home has something to offer. All I can say is that the owners are truly sharing their "home" and not just a rental. Beautiful home with a very rich history of love and life. I highly recommend.
Our family had an amazing long weekend at this property! It truly felt like we were staying at a friend's house. There was plenty of room for 6 adults, but yet it felt cozy at the same time. The views from the deck were fantastic! The owners have done all of the little things to make this an awesome place to stay. They were also very responsive to questions that came up before our stay. The location was perfect -- just minutes from Manhattan, but yet far enough out to feel like we could get away from it all too. We hope to book another visit in the future!
Tuttle Creek Lake, Manhattan, Kansas location, yet minutes from KSU, Shopping, Restaurants, all on paved Roads.
