Life is too short to settle for generic lodging....and this little two bedroom cottage in the heart of the Midwest has all of the comforts of home -- and then some! (Fiber Internet!) You have the entire property to yourself, complete with a fully appointed kitchen and laundry, & large outdoor space for relaxing. Our hens will treat you to fresh brown eggs daily ...and copies of Marci Penner's Kansas Guidebook are by the beds to encourage exploring in Kansas!

The space
Two bedrooms (with plenty of pillows), fully appointed kitchen & laundry facilities, shared bath, full living room with additional fold-out sleeper sofa, electric fireplace, smart TV with Netflix and high speed wireless internet. Outdoor amenities include a gazebo complete with twinkle lights…grill, picnic table, outdoor furniture, a firepit for stargazing and S'more's, and a life-sized "Jenga" game and yard dominoes for hours of entertainment!
If you will be arriving early enough for a fire, and the weather is cooperative....Gary will light the firepit for you to enjoy!
When you make reservations at the Guest House, you will be assured that it is all yours...the kitchen, laundry facilities, everything! A great way to make your next stay more affordable.
The front door has a digital keypad entry and the code will be shared with guests in advance of arrival.
We welcome dogs who are house-trained or crated. If you need outside pens for dogs, we have 3 pens, and 2 igloo doghouses—just let us know and we’ll have it ready.
(Sorry...I have an allergy to cat fur.)

Where you’ll be

Hanston, Kansas, United States

Our neighborhood is a quiet family neighborhood in a very tiny Midwest town. You are welcome to walk or bike and explore the town! There is one restaurant in town....only a few blocks away; and a variety of other restaurants 11 miles to the West in Jetmore. We are a short 1/2 hour's drive from Fort Larned Historical site and HorseThief Reservoir...and only 45 minutes from world-famous Dodge City! A do-not-miss if you want to relax and enjoy a taste of life in the Midwest.
We are really big on quiet evenings around the fire pit, with Smores and an adult beverage...and Gary will be happy to build a roaring fire for you (S’mores supplies are kept stocked for you.) The custom-made fire pit represents each branch of the military in it's custom base.
Our neighborhood is made up of retirees and a few young families. We ask that you drive slowly in case there are little ones riding their bikes.
One thing that we want to make sure you are aware of...is that we’re right next to the Coop. This is generally not a problem, but during wheat harvest they are open until 10:00 pm and there are sometimes farm trucks lined up to dump grain. At first I was afraid this might bother guests, but much to my delight, guest love it and often want to come back during harvest. ❤️ (It is a fun time of the year!)

I love to travel, to read non-fiction, and to plan events! My husband and I have a Guest House (B&B we don't live in) and are enjoying meeting new friends and fellow travelers. Most of my travel is within the US, but I have been to India and Europe and loved it! I am employed in the Economic Development and Tourism industry and enjoy spending time with my family. I have a little black Scotty named Mamie; can't function without coffee; am a big fan of wine by the firepit; and enjoy my little Glamper ( a vintage 65 Shasta camper) that I have "glamped up". My current passion is developing a Community Maker Space with 3D printers and other equipment. My life motto: "The best way to predict the future is to invent it." -- Alan Kay

During your stay

We always try to be on site when our guests arrive to give them a tour of the house and make sure that all of their questions are answered. We try not to hover...but are always right across the street (and only a phone call away) should they need anything. If for some reason we will not be on hand...we will let them know in advance.
We do have a little Scott Terrier, Mamie (named after Mamie Eisenhower) who lives with us across the street. She has been known to bark....but will not come over without us.
There are always fresh eggs in the fridge from our neighbors...and you are welcome to our garden fresh goodies in season. (Gary is the one with the green thumb.)
