A resident of Eureka for 23 years, I am a life-long resident of Greenwood County, Kansas. Currently employed by the City of Eureka, it is my goal to help improve our rural Flint Hills community whenever I can. By offering this humble place to stay I hope to be able to showcase our peaceful way of life in small town rural America.
Ian Martell purchased this cottage in 2010
I've been in Kansas all my life. Suffered through a lot of Wizard of Oz jokes but it's home.The Cottage was my Mother's home till she moved to assisted living. The Rental income helps pay her monthly expenses.
If you are from anywhere other than small town America, the pace of life here will be unlike anything you have experienced. You will find this a friendly town where strangers say hi, give accurate directions and lend a hand if you need help. It's a place where when the UPS guy leaves a package on your front porch it's still there when you get home from work. As evening settles in it's quiet enough to hear cows outside of town lowing to their calves and it's easy to pick out the unique sound of the gas engine on the oil well to the North of town. Long lines do not exist here. If I go to the bank drive in and there are more than two cars at the window I come back later. Safe, peaceful, quiet, that's Eureka. That's The Cottage.
Our wonderful experience at The Cottage mirrors the glowing reviews posted by others. We were in town for a family reunion and were thrilled to find such a comfortable place to stay. The owner provides so much more than most rental homes we have enjoyed and the thoroughly stocked kitchen made our food preparation enjoyable and easy - almost better than being at home! When we need to return to Eureka, we will definitely look to The Cottage. We just wish it had 17 bedrooms so that the entire family could stay there!
The inside is well done has been remodeled.
Needs to have recliners, larger beds.
It now has a love seat and chair. No foot stool. It has 2 twin beds and a full bed in the other bedroom.
The TV is terrible. Try to change the channel and the TV turns off. Not much to watch.
Has a very good grocery store in town.
Needs a middle size skillet. Now has a large and a small one.
Probably would not rent again because of the above and the fact it is so far from everything.
I often visit family in Eureka and typically stay with them. On occasion the bedrooms are full with other visiting family members so I have periodically stayed at one of the motels in town. I got lucky when I called for lodging and there was no vacancy / I discovered "The Cottage" quite by accident when looking online for another location to call about rooms. "The Cottage" was perfect - the small house is clean and neat and provides all the amenities of being at home. Whether just passing through town or staying for a few days or weeks, this small house will meet all of your needs.
We had a lovely retreat weekend. The kitchen was convenient. The linens were plentiful and clean. The overall condition was spotless. It suited our needs perfectly.
The Cottage is a nice little house on the outskirts of Eureka KS. It's on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood. Everything in the house was very 'homey' & nice. It served me well for the week I was there. There is not much to sightsee in the area, but I was there to geocache and I found many in the general area. I would recommend this property to anyone who wanted/needed to stay in the area.
We loved staying in the cottage. It perfectly fitted our requirements and we loved it. Thank you Mr Martell for having us. We would stay again if we ever came back to Eureka.
Eureka is located in the heart of cattle country in the midst of the renowned Tall Grass Prairie. Cowboy hats, boots, and spurs are still common here but not required attire. Small town rural America, Eureka could be described more by what it doesn't have. Characterized by the absence of crowds, noise, long lines, pollution, heavy traffic, and crime, Eureka is a quiet and safe place to stay.
Drive the hills Northwest of town and see cattle country little changed from the late 1800's. Plan your stay in April and you will be able watch as local ranchers burn the prairie on quiet spring evenings. These controlled burns renew the grass in a ritual reflecting nature that dates back literally thousands of years. Enjoy Party In The Park on the 4th of July in a town where almost all fireworks are still legal for the public to shoot.
Book in August and attend the Greenwood County PRCA sanctioned rodeo. Be here on the first Saturday in November and help us celebrate CattleMens Day with a parade, barbeque and more.
For some of the best fishing in the state, Lake Eureka, 5 mi North of town, is available with a valid Kansas fishing license. No local license is required to fish. A City license is required to ski or recreate upon the water other than fishing. Also close by, both Fall River and Toronto reservoirs are a 20-30 min. drive.
Or just kick back on the porch and enjoy the peace and quiet.
