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.

Stay for game weekend and campus meetings

  • 5 out of 5
As I unpack today I am smiling at the memories of our time in the Strong Inn. How very thoughtful it is of the owner to send guests home with gifts that are reminders of a special place:) As if that wasn't enough, Rachelle went above and beyond and also left us treats to enjoy during our stay. With fresh flowers on the table, we felt completely spoiled. We have stayed in many VRBO homes in our travels and never has anyone done so much to make us feel welcome. The home is so comfortable that our stay was perfect. The kitchen is well equipped and everything is so homey. Nice shower, comfy beds and a living room set up well for catching up with visiting friends. We had a busy schedule during our stay and the location was perfect for everywhere we needed to be. Our only regret is that we didn't get to enjoy the patio. That porch swing looked very inviting. Guess we will have to do that on our next visit. We visit Manhattan often so we are very glad we found the Strong Inn:)

I am so sorry that we didn't have a chance to write in the journal at the home. I will share my positive feedback on your VRBO page. We look forward to staying with you again soon and will be sure to share our experience and your home with the many other alumni we know who visit Manhattan regularly.

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!
