About Susan

Our family welcomes you this charming home. Randy and I are Landlords in Manhattan and have been in the business for 29 years. We have properties located in and around Kansas State University that we rent to college students. However, when we purchased this property it had a different feel to it. We had a vision to make it a special vacation retreat to share it with others.

We love the charm and character that older homes have and decided to restore and decorate it much like our own 100 year old farm house. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Susan purchased this house in 2011

A good option for friends & family

  • 4 of 5

Grandma Mitchum's was a good choice. The bedrooms have comfortable queen-sized beds, and the two bathrooms are modern, with shower and shower/tub. The dining room table provides ample seating and it flows into the living room. The kitchen is equipped with basic pots, pans, utensils, and serving ware (could use more supplies such as a tea pot, more cooking pots and plates). No recycling. Lots of curios in the built-in cabinets. The gas BBQ off the back deck was a great bonus, as was laundry downstairs and wireless. Windows have screens and they open for fresh air. I'd give it 3.5 - 4 stars as it needed a good deep cleaning (crumbs under sofa! Someone's old beer cup! Dust & cobwebs!), door screens needed repair, and kitchen supplies could be better. Also, it is between student housing, so it was not quiet. That said, one can easily walk to campus, Aggieville, and City Park, and it is a positive addition to the vacation options in MHK.

K-state alum!

Was in town for a reunion. Stayed here with a few friends and had a great time. Great location, just a few blocks from aggieville and campus. Beds were comfortable and the house was clean! Would definitely stay again.

Excellent place to stay for Mom's Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I certainly enjoyed this comfortable home to stay in during my daughter's Mom's weekend at K-State. What a great place to invite other moms and daughters to visit over a cup of coffee or order a meal and dine in away from the crowded restaurants. Wish I would have discovered it sooner as by third child is about to graduate from K-state.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for graduation weekend! The house is simply fantastic! This home is a home away from home. Susan is great to work with and so helpful throughout the booking process. We will always try to rent this home whenever we are in Manhattan. Having a fully stocked kitchen is wonderful as you don't have to eat all of your meals out. Two beds and two baths - can't get any better than this place.

Thanksgivng Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for Thanksgiving weekend which also was the weekend of the KU - KSU football game. My five children, three in college and two in high school, were able to have a great Thanksgiving Day in our "home" in Manhattan. The house exceeded my expectations. The location was great. Susan was very easy to work with and very helpful with booking the house. I plan to rent this home again in the future.

trip without the kids

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house and space. Bathrooms very nice and up-to-date. Easy walk to Aggieville. Would have given 5 stars if the cable had included sport channels. The husbands wanted to watch college football during our down time.

Location

Within 1 block is the Kansas State University campus and the Beach Museum. Aggieville is just 1 1/2 blocks south and offers shopping, dining, and a great night life. The city park is just 1 block south of Aggieville. It offers a huge pool, a children's sprinkler park, a wonderful playground, and every Friday night during the summer a live band performs which is family oriented. The downtown district and Mall is only about 1 mile away. The newly opened Flinthills Discovery center would be a great place to explore.
