---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Scenic Valley property features a log barn we affectionately call “The Wooden Nickel.” The upstairs loft has a complete kitchen with two ranges and two refrigerators. The Wooden Nickel Event Center can serve up to 225 people for sit-down meal service using the loft and ground floor. While we do not have an on-site catering staff, we are happy to recommend several excellent caterers for your occasion.

Tables and chairs are included with rental of the Event Center; linens and tableware are extra. The downstairs area of the Wooden Nickel can seat up to 150 guests for video or multimedia presentations or music events. It’s big enough to house a half-court basketball court which converts to volleyball in just a couple of minutes.

Your wedding event, anniversary celebration, family reunion, birthday or graduation party, corporate meetings or any other special occasion should evoke memories you’ll cherish forever. We’d love to help you prepare for your social event, and we take pride in making sure every guest’s experience at Scenic Valley is unforgettable.

About Diana Nickel

Paul and Diana Nickel were instrumental in designing and building the entire property of The Wooden Nickel Event Center and the Bed and Breakfast Scenic Valley Inn. We are Kansas State University graduates in Business and Human Ecology. We have lived in the Manhattan area since coming here in 1972 as juniors at K-State. We have raised 3 children here. Our sons are K-State grads also and our daughter is a Manhattan Christian College graduate. We have an ever expanding extended family with grandchildren who love coming to our home.

Diana Nickel purchased this barn in 2003

Why Diana Nickel chose Kansas

We chose to build our log home on this beautiful wooded property and designed the B&B purposefully to be a very homey atmosphere for families to share with us the blessing of living in such a fantastic community as Manhattan. We love the opportunity to provide a place of celebration for families during Wedding and Family Reunion Events.

We are also a great respite away from busy lives in need of refreshing and contemplation.

Our youngest son, Brian, was vital in the design details and participated in the construction of our B&B. Our

oldest son, Jason, has creatively designed and maintains our web-site. Our daughter, Juliana, was an intricate part of helping us start the business in 2004 when she was 15 years old. Paul is a financial advisor full time and part time 'maintenance supervisor and parking director'. We are the epitome of a family business and have enjoyed working together to make this a vision and dream come true.

What makes this barn unique

'Out in the country but close to town.' Manhattan, Kansas is a great place to visit while you are at Scenic Valley Inn and The Wooden Nickel Event Center. It's just a quick 8 minute drive to K-State sporting events at Bramlage Coliseum, or Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Many outstanding restaurants and shopping experiences await guests in our unique but sophisticated community. Many part-time and full-time residents call it 'Manhappiness'!

We enjoy hosting families for their first visit to Manhattan/Ft. Riley area whether touring for future 'Wildcats' or visiting families who are deploying or redeploying. Returning guests are welcomed back for Parents Weekends to Graduation Weekends. We are your home away from home headquarters. Our theme is 'Welcome Home to Scenic Valley Inn, You Won't Want To Leave.'
