Paul and I have lived in Manhattan since 1972. We came here from Hutchinson Jr. College, completed our degrees in Finance and Early Childhood Education the year we were married in 1974. We've raised 3 children and now enjoy sharing our custom-built log home Bed and Breakfast with family and new friends.
Diana Nickel purchased this lodge in 2003
We truly enjoy sharing our love of Kansas and the Flint Hills with our guests. Tours of the Konza Prairie Preserve can be a highlight of your stay. Planning weddings and special events is a passion we've acquired through expanding our business into our Event Center (Barn) and Meadow area for outdoor weddings.
Many families rent the whole Inn and use our Event Center for lunches and dinners during their multiple-night stays. It has a fully equipped kitchen in the loft with seating for 80 to 100 or fewer than that for more intimate dining. We've created a half-court basketball area on the ground floor. We can also set up a volleyball net.
We offer a unique setting for corporate meetings and have wi-fi connections there also.
Quiet and peaceful, beautiful surroundings, and a view from every window is how our guests often describe their stay and the atmosphere God has provided in our natural setting between two ridges of the Flint Hills. A hearty breakfast will add to the lasting memories for first time bed and breakfast guests and experienced travelers alike. 'It's like being in a tree house with luxury' is one of the exclamations that is often uttered from our new friends as they step into the Great Room. Viewing humming birds and wildlife on our peaceful property is a very enjoyable pass time.
We can not get over your attention to detail. It is impeccable. Thank you also for making our baby, feel welcomed while celebrating our 3rd Anniversary. Everything was perfect! And the food this morning - delicious!
Hope to see you again.
My wife and I love the Scenic Valley Inn! We had our wedding reception in the event center and stayed at the Inn that evening back in 2010. We could not have had a more pleasant experience working with them and staying there for our wedding night. Thus, we made it a point to stay there again, and we were able to this past Spring!
Diana is a wonderful host who makes you feel right at home. Her company over breakfast is always full of delightful conversations and we feel as if she is a part of our family now.
Our next trip back to Manhattan will for sure include another stay at Scenic Valley! Since we have kiddos on the way, we are excited to utilize the wonderful amenities Scenic Vally provides for children.
I highly recommend staying here. That is if you are looking for a relaxing and cozy getaway.
My daughter and I surprised my sister with an overnight stay at Scenic Valley Bed and Breakfast in Manhattan, KS. We almost didn't make the trip due to impending blizzard warnings, but decided to go for it and oh my, what a satisfying stay we had. Diana made us immediately feel at home and offered us all the comforts of being in our own home. What a peaceful, calm atmosphere in their beautiful log cabin home they built specifically for blessing others in their travels. Our room was every bit as big, roomy, and cozy as depicted on the website. We awoke the next morning to a breakfast fit for kings and an enjoyable visit with our hostess. Once again, she made us feel totally at home and even showed us around the whole house before we left. Husband Paul was too busy grading snow off the premises and cleaning off/warming up our car to spend time with us. But, his efforts in assuring our departure would go well -due to the snow that did come-was indeed a blessing to a carload of women! I would recommend this setting/home/couple to you for a most enjoyable stay in a Christ filled atmosphere. What a relaxing time we had and I will go again in the near future!
PS. They have a really cool game/exercise room that we didn't make use of, but I know a few males in my acquaintances that would have enjoyed that aspect of this B and B.
We recently stayed at Scenic Valley Inn for our 25th wedding anniversary and we had a very enjoyable and relaxing time!. Diana and Paul's home is simply unbelievably gorgeous! They spared no expense in building their home and the work they put into building their place was truly a labor of love. Paul and Diana felt like long time friends and we were so comfortable in their home, they truly made us feel welcome and as if we lived there! We enjoyed the delicious breakfasts they provided for us and they made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Diana was extremely helpful as we made our reservations over the phone as we had many questions regarding our stay, she was patient and honest in her answers to us. The listing description was accurate and everything was exactly like it was represented on the website. Truly, the best part of the stay was our fellowship with these like minded Christian believers, truly a blessing from our Lord, Jesus Christ!
My husband and I have always preferred bed and breakfast inns to chain hotels. However, when we had children, we could only generally stay at them when we traveled alone. What a delight to discover this gorgeous bed and breakfast in Manhattan, KS that will accommodate families with children. We stayed in the Americana room, which was perfect for me and my husband and our two children (the kids stayed on comfy mattresses on the floor). We had a large private bath and a gorgeous view of the woods. In addition to our nice room, we had access to the rest of the home that included a beautiful living room, loft sitting room, basement game room and children's playroom, and a kitchen stocked with hot cocoa and apple cider. My five year old loved the two story playhouse in the playroom, and my 12 year old loved playing air hockey and pingpong. Breakfast in the morning was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed our conversations with the owner of the inn who made us feel like family. This inn is a hidden treasure tucked away in the woods of Kansas (yes....woods in Kansas!) and made our recent trip to Manhattan feel like a stay at a Colorado lodge.
Great place, friendly and breakfast was wonderful! We really appreciated the hospitality. Diana made us feel like long lost friends. We would recommend this venue to anyone! If you like a wooded setting in a beautiful log lodge then this is the place for you
This is the second time I have stayed at Scenic Valley Inn. My girlfriends and I have had wonderful experiences both times, years apart! The breakfasts are great and they even prepared gluten free items for one of us who has celiac disease. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and homey. The morning we were leaving I had a flat tire and they helped air it up! They also gave us bottled water for the trip home. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Thank you Diana!
