About Ian Martell

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

Why Ian Martell chose Kansas

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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 and 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.

Perfect Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very surprised when we walked through the door to such an inviting house . Very comforting feeling . The kitchen cupboards were stocked with all the necessities we have at our own home. The set up flowed from the kitchen to dining area to living room just right . Older style furniture reminded of house my grandmothers house . Laundry room was more than we expected. Easy access to town , but yet in a quiet neighborhood. Loved the small town friendliness . As I said in my title , Perfect little Cottage ! Rich D.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed for 10 days, it was very warm (not the weather) and welcoming. Everything you need to complete your stay. 😊

If you are staying in the area this is the place. It's a home away from home with all of the amenities. Thanks and I will definitely be back.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
