Prairieside Cottage is an idyllic family-friendly retreat nestled in the heart of the Flint Hills of Kansas. It is located in the tiny and energetic creative community of Matfield Green. The property is adjacent to town and privately situated with 8 acres of beautiful tallgrass prairie beside the cottage. Stargazers will delight in the rural location of Prairieside Cottage which has spectacular night skies within a truly dark site for astronomical observation.
Nature lovers, artists and vacationers looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway will enjoy Prairieside Cottage. The main house features a full kitchen, dining room, living room, office space, bedroom and bathroom (with a deep soaking tub), as well as a custom loft space that is perfect for reading and dreaming. The property also has a quaint one-room studio building that can be used as an artist’s or writer’s studio or an extra bedroom.
Families and children are welcome. Nature walks are possible on the property, which hosts abundant wildlife and a variety of plants and grasses. Trains run close by, art galleries are just around the corner, the sky is a constantly beautiful canvas, and there are many local attractions and historical sites to explore in the area.
The cottage is newly remodeled and welcomed the first guests in May 2014.
We are frequent visitors to the Flint Hills region, and we are now putting down roots of our own in a place we love.

I had a wonderful time at Prairieside Cottage. It's the perfect retreat. It seems so far away from every placed, a good place for resting, reading and thinking.
Good value and pretty comfortable house. Good location for exploring too.
We were looking for a retreat in the Flint Hills and we found it. Sweet, cozy, peaceful, modern, beautiful and creative. We were enthralled with exploring and enjoying every inch of the place. Our family needed a getaway to reconnect, slow down, and enjoy each-other's company, which is exactly what the Prairieside Cottage helped us do. Next time we venture to the Hills, I know where we'll stay. Thanks so much!
My wife and I chose this location to celebrate our wedding anniversary this year. We were impressed with the decor and design of the home. There was custom woodwork throughout the home, tasteful pottery and furnishings, and an eclectic collection of books. This is a great place for cooking and conversation... if you want a TV stay somewhere else. :-) The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked. We were there on the weekend and at night as you lay in bed you could hear the rumble of passing trains nearby. The place has a wonderful ambience and was comfortable for us. It offered many cozy corners for reading and relaxation. It served as a pleasant retreat for us.
This was our second stay and we enjoyed the quiet setting and the house itself. The only problem was that it was locked when we arrived. We were able to track down someone with a key, but it was an aggravation and we received no apology afterward.
Peaceful late December retreat. Gorgeous home and surroundings. Starry nights. I will return.
The host has clearly paid attention to every detail in creating a retreat space for introspection, relaxation, and reflection. The simplicity, yet charming comfort of Prarieside Cottage is a welcome delight! Thank you SO much!
