Those who have been here know: Not much beats the tallgrass prairie in serene beauty. The Flint Hillls in east-central Kansas were never plowed, and now form the last remaining of America’s original “sea of grass” where hundreds of thousands of cattle roam almost like in the old days of the buffalo. The prairie offers stunning views as well as pastoral settings along its many creeks and rivers.
At the edge of the small town Matfield Green Elaine’s two-story home is available for weekenders and vacationers, or for an extended stay.
The house is idyllic and comfortable, restored with a good eye and with the wise use of original materials.
Filled with the work of regional artists and lots of books, this home is a wonderful getaway for artists and writers.
The two bedrooms and bathrooms, and the living and open kitchen are pleasantly furnished with well-chosen regional antiques. Two porches and a large and well-maintained garden allow for great comfort outdoors.
The tracks of the Santa Fe railroad are nearby. The house is located on the north side of town just off Highway #177, a National Scenic Byway.

Your home proved to be the perfect respite from my two working days at the Symphony site in Butler County. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Look forward to our paths crossing in the near future.
Elaine's Prairie Home is located near Pioneer Bluffs, a ranch listed on the National list of Historic Places. Inside the 1908 main house on this beautiful property you'll find a gallery with extraordinary contemporary art. Also in Matfield Green you'll find The Bank art space where the coffee is always ready. Cottonwood Falls (just a short drive north) has nice shops and eating places on its handsome Broadway, with the iconic Chase County courthouse at its south corner. A fishing lake is nearby, so are rivers, creeks, and abundant wildlife. Hiking, biking, running, birdwatching -- it's all here.
Buffalo are reintroduced on the prairie in the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve 30 min. north of Elaine's Prairie Home. And the views of the prairie are mindblowing.
