Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday estate in Kansas - Praireiwood Retreat

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Other (See Description), Sleeps 14

Situated in the Flint Hills just 2 miles from the west side of Manhattan, Kansas, Prairiewood offers an exquisite guest residence with exceptional meeting and banquet space, luxurious bed and bathroom suites, abundant amenities, and over 250 acres of Tallgrass prairie to explore. Nestled on an ancient limestone outcropping between two wooded ravines, time spent here will awaken the senses, renew perspective, and inspire imagination.

By limiting use of Prairiewood to one guest group at at time, experiences here can be custom-tailored to to meet the specific wishes of each guest. There are no interruptions, no other guests wandering through, and no intrusions by our staff - except when requested. The rare privacy, unparalleled service, and stunning beauty of this special place will exceed your highest expectations.

Our Story: 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 team of tremendous individuals.

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. We would be honored to host you.

Capacity & Uses: The floor plan of Prairiewood is highly adaptable to a wide range of uses and events. A first-class, fully wired audio/visual meeting room will seat 12–50 guests, with a wide array of seating and table options available. Banquet seating throughout the venue is offered for up to 60 guests. There are 4 Bedroom/bathroom suites available on-site, an additional 6 luxury temporary beds available, and shuttling to/from nearby hotels is also offered for larger groups needing additional overnight accommodations. Whether a corporate retreat or rehearsal dinner, a family reunion or K-State sporting event, we would be honored to show you why Prairiewood is the region’s premier venue for those seeking a truly distinctive experience.

Why Praireiwood?: 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.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Our mom's surprise 80th birthday weekend!

Our mom's surprise 80th birthday weekend!
  • 5 out of 5
GORGEOUS Retreat! We surprised our mom for her 80th birthday and her weekend could not have been better! Families from Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Ohio, California and Wisconsin spent the weekend swimming, touring the prairie, playing in the creek, fishing in the pond, playing pool, enjoying the peacefulness and cows and wildlife...just having a wonderful time together. With its proximity to Manhattan it was easy for those who could not stay overnight to come and go throughout the weekend. The house was beautiful, including a kitchen with everything we could possibly need! We turned the conference room into a dorm room for some of our younger generation and that worked perfectly! Kimberly was very helpful with any questions we had as we planned our surprise. Kail, the owner, was so friendly and informative as he drove us through his prairie trails! Four generations celebrating our mom/grandmom/great-grandmom together...we could not have chosen a better place!
