Although I'm not from Kansas, my family was holding a reunion there because my Aunt Dorothy (yes, she lives there) is 93 yrs old & doesn't like to travel anymore. My family had rented a bed & breakfast in Winfield, so I decided to look for something close by as to relieve the overflow because there were only 6 rooms there, as well as something a little less pricey. Well, I couldn't have asked for anything better! This cabin was only 20 minutes away, was very reasonably priced, Lynn treated me wonderfully, the proceeds go to a good cause & even though it's small, it had everything we needed & it was just enough room for my brother & I.
Unfortunately, the rest of my family wasn't treated with the same respect at the b&b over in Winfield & from what I've seen, Ken owns more than one over there so beware. My cousin Joan was so upset about the way he treated them, that she said that's not the way people from Kansas are & that she wanted us to see how the real people from Kansas treat you. I said don't worry about that, I found that in Dexter where I was treated like a queen! Anyways, I am so happy that I chose the cabin & will definitely stay there if I ever come through that way again. The only suggestion my brother made was to get some curtains up in the loft area, as he was hit with the sun shining through early in the morning.
Don't forget to go to Henry's Candy which is right up the road from the cabin. A few miles south is a beautiful waterfall at Cowley Lake that my family that lives near here, had never even been to. Thanks for the hospitality Lynn, you made me feel very at home & welcomed. You definitely outshined what could have been a very disappointing stay if I had stayed with the rest of my family over in Winfield. May God bless your endeavor.
Honestly, I was a bit worried following my GPS to this rental. And if I hadn't seen the pictures and caught a glimpse of it, I would have never found it. But I LOVED it! It had just about everything I could have asked for! A few notes to fellow travellers: bring a bit of charcoal and something to grill. They have a great set-up right outside. And if you use the stove, turn on the fan AND crack the kitchen window a bit, or you'll set the fire alarm off!
The bed (downstairs) was super soft and comfortable. The location was quiet and fairly private. I will definitely be back. Maybe this time without spoiled teenagers who don't appreciate the novelty of sleeping in a loft! Four stars only because my kids were a little too old to sleep on the thin mattresses in the loft very comfortably, but that's just a personal thing. This rental is VERY worth the money if you're attending anything within a 1 hour distance.
