During your visit to Kansas’ beautiful Flint Hills, treat yourself to a stay at Shady Cottage in historic Matfield Green, conveniently located on the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway. Shady Cottage is tucked into a leafy corner of this old cattle town on Mercer Street, named after the town’s founder, a settler from Matfield-on-the Green, England.
This well-maintained private home includes a modern kitchen and open dining and living areas. While at Shady Cottage, enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine on the screened-in porch. Relax with a book in the library, and fall asleep to the quiet sounds of the prairie and the gentle rumble of the distant BNSF trains.
Only steps from the wide-open prairie, Shady Cottage provides the best of small-town living with all the modern conveniences. Use your stay to log off, unwind and relax or the cottage’s TV and Wifi will help you stay in touch with the world. If your group includes children, bring sleeping bags for a “camp out” on the screened-in porch and comfortable shoes for the nearby prairie walks.
From Shady Cottage, it’s a short walk to the art gallery at The Bank. A mile north on I77 you’ll discover The Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs, located on a historic Chase County ranch. Continue north to Cottonwood Falls, where must-sees include the historic courthouse, antique shops and restaurants. Other nearby sites include the Chase State Fishing Lake and the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, where, once again, the buffalo roam.
We enjoyed our four-night stay ever so much. It was wonderful being surrounded by all the birds and the bird feeders! We look forward to staying at Shady Cottage again some time. This would be an excellent "base camp" for people wanting to walk, bike or drive throught the beautiful Flint Hills.
A wonderful cottage in a small rural community with a lot of prairie history, and lots of new activities to attract the attention. We were surprised to find great art in this prairie town. We hiked in the open range and saw the young grasses come up green just days after the old grasses were burned (we just missed the fires, next year we want to be here during burning season).
The cottage is quite a sizeable house and looks newly renovated. We understand the (new) owner is still decorating. What's there now is tasteful, beautiful and comfortable. We can't wait to see what she will add but have to wait until next year before we will be able to return. The little "street" is very quiet. The few lively neighbors are welcoming and altogether form a happy crowd. It's easy to feel at home here.
