About Rachelle Routh

I'm the GGGgranddaughter of the originally owners. Henry and Elenora Strong. Henry built the limestone home in 1867 from his nearby rock quarry at the foot of Bluemont Hill. The Strongs were early pioneers of Manhattan, Kansas locating there in 1858 from Bolton, CT. The Strongs had the largest apple orchard and dairy during that time. Elenora was the first school teacher in Manhattan along with Rev Blood's wife. Elenora taught in the loft of the Strong's barn. Henry was an abolitionist and walked to Missouri to fight the Civil War. Henry was on the good side of Government and was known to tend to sick livestock around the neighborhood. Henry supplied the limestone for Anderson Hall on Kansas State University Campus while Elenora sang at the laying of the cornerstone ceremony in a wagon. The Strong were very vital in the making of what Manhattan Kansas is today. Henry supplied stone to building on Poyntz, Sunset Cementary and the Strong School. Strong Ave. was also named after this family. The family was strong in their faith, trusting in GOD to guide them through hard times. The Strongs were no strangers to hard times as were most folks of that time. The lost several children, crops to natural disasters, livestock to disease, their orginal log cabin to fire and illness themselves.

Rachelle Routh purchased this house in 2006

Why Rachelle Routh chose Kansas

This property is close and dear to those in Manhattan that love history. The location is in a nice established neighbor with nice trees and a large lot for privacy, grilling, volleyball and outdoor picnics. A great easy drive to the Bill Synder Stadium, Mercy Hospital, the Mall the Walmart.

Go Cats

  • 5 out of 5
Having KSU football tickets our family travels to Manhattan frequently during the season and finding Strong House was a blessing. Finding a home base for games is great, we especially enjoy the TV and living room for pre-game viewing and after game recaps. It was great to sit back relax, and with a kitchen so convenient, make meals and avoid lines at restaurants.
Thanks Rachelle for making our getaways comfortable and welcoming. We look forward to spending the entire season at Strong House.

Comfortable Strong Inn

  • 5 out of 5
Since my three sons and I no longer live in Manhattan, I was worried about where we could all stay comfortably when one son chose to be married in the flint hills. I was not worried long after I found the Strong Inn. The owner was pleasant, easy to contact and accommodating with our hectic schedule. What a nice surprise to find fresh flowers, and a gift waiting for us. Our family enjoyed the quaintness and history of the old home, and sitting on the patio in the evenings. Hosting the post wedding brunch was so much fun, and easy to do, with all the comforts of home. I have told all my friends about the Strong Inn's great alternative to staying in a cramped hotel, and am looking forward to staying there again when I am in Manhattan.

A stay with grandchildren

  • 4 out of 5
We were looking for a place between Nebraska and Kansas to gather our 6 grandchildren for our annual Cousins Camp. The Strong Inn was a great place for the 8 of us to sleep, eat, do crafts out on the patio, play in the yard and just have fun. It is well furnished and a home away from home. Thank you to the owners for their friendly help!

Family reunion

  • 5 out of 5
Our family needed a comfortable place to stay for a family reunion and this was the perfect place! It was child friendly with a large yard, nice outdoor patio space and a playroom with toys. We were welcomed with flowers and a gift and the owner was readily available by phone to answer any questions we had. There is a washer and dryer and the kitchen has everything you need.

Family trip to see daughter & husband

Family trip to see daughter & husband
  • 5 out of 5
We came to see our newlywed daughter & her husband in the Army at Ft. Riley. Loved our stay in your wonderful historic home! Great location with lots of military, Presidental, and area history outings. The home was very clean and comfortable. More than enough room for us. We even had a cookout for our daughter's 26th birthday! We will be back for sure! Recommend to all!

What a find

  • 5 out of 5
We were in Manhattan for a swim meet. We have 5 kids and obviously get very stir crazy in a hotel room. We were looking for a place close to campus so we could go back and forth during the long days. The Strong Inn was the only listing that popped up available when we were looking, but what a great find it was. Staying in a historic home was a real treat for the kids. They spent the first hour going room to room reading about the history of the house and the Strong Family. There was a welcome basket on the kitchen table that brought a smile to my wife's face. The back yard had plenty of room for the kids to play around in. I went for a ran each morning on the Linear Trail which is right across the street. The home is a great balance of Antiques and modern conveniences. The owner was very responsive to our requests and went above and beyond to make are stay comfortable and memorable. The kids said we have to stay there everytime we go to Manhattan, and we will.
