You guys ROCK! Fifteen of us stayed here for my son's wedding in town. We had Rehearsal Dinner here and everyone was blown away by the entire property. There isn't a single thing any of us would change. This retreat is stunning and amazing, and Kimberly is fantastic. Thank you so much for such a wonderful idea and home. We will definitely be back if you will have us. Love the Sirius Radio, wow! Thanks a million.
We fell in love with the Flint Hills tallgrass prairie when we each came to Manhattan to attend K-State. Now, some 20 years later after graduating from KSU, we have made the Flint Hills our home - and Prairiewood our labor of love. Together with our 3 children, we enjoy the charm of Manhattan living, KSU sports, and the great outdoors of this special place.
The dream and vision for Prairiewood began over 10 years ago. It all started with a simple vision for saving some of the native tallgrass prairie landscape in and around Manhattan, Kansas. Along the way, we became more and more compelled by the idea of using the prairie to provide a place where the values of the land can find their way into the hearts and souls of its visitors–a place where the senses are awakened, perspective is renewed, and imagination is inspired. We have worked diligently over the past five years to bring together all the pieces for such a place. We have acquired land surrounded by native prairie ecology, created exquisite accommodations and meeting space, blazed miles of walking trails, and assembled a staff of tremendous individuals. Now, after officially opening in January of 2010, the next chapter of our story is just beginning...
Prairiewood is now a unique property set aside specifically as a prairie preserve to be used as a retreat facility. Whether an individual or couple seeking a place to rest and renew, a small group looking for a unique and inspiring place to meet, or a board-of-directors requiring a state-of-the-art meeting room, Prairiewood won't disappoint. From our first-class, carefully appointed accommodations to our world class guest service, everything at Prairiewood has been thoughtfully assembled to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
Praireiwood is very versatile. It is intentionally intimate, unusually private, and thoroughly welcoming. While just next to town, there is feeling of being a million miles away. The prairie has a subtle yet profound beauty that tends to calm our nerves and inspire our dreams. We always feel refreshed after spending time there, whether waking the trails or sipping coffee in the sun room. We take great pleasure in sharing this very special place which we so love.
