About Susan and Randy Stallbaumer

Our family welcomes you this charming home. Randy and I are Landlords in Manhattan and have been in the business for 29 years. We have properties located in and around Kansas State University that we rent to college students. However, when we purchased this property it had a different feel to it. We had a vision to make it a special vacation retreat to share it with others.

We love the charm and character that older homes have and decided to restore and decorate it much like our own 100 year old farm house. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

wonderful house in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Grandma Mitchem's Manor. The house was well furnished and very comfortable. We were surprised about how much space there was. We expected it to be a little smaller from looking at the pictures. The kitchen and bathroom are spacious and wonderfully updated. The location was amazing. Just a couple blocks from both Aggieville and campus. We walked everywhere and didn't have to worry about driving.

The tree outside the back patio needed to be carefully navigated around and there were cobwebs here and there but that can be easily taken care of.

Overall a pleasant experience through and through! Thank you Susan

Birthday/game day reunion

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I reunited here for a birthday and game day celebration. This house was absolutely perfect. Not only was it a beautiful property, it was bigger than the pictures depicted. The location was walking distance to everything these Alums could ask for. We will definitely be back to stay again. Thank you for your hospitality!

Back to the College Scene!

  • 5 of 5

Our 10-day stay was the 3rd or 4th time we've returned to GM's Manor to connect with the campus scene and rekindle memories of our long ago college days. Easy [2 block] walk to the Aggieville restaurants & pubs, & to the Campus. [walked over & caught Shirley McClain's show one evening] Great spot for travels during retirement!!! Chet W

Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location for a weekend getaway. Tucked away in between Aggieville and campus, we were able to work everywhere. The two bedrooms and two baths made this the perfect set up for our family. The house was clean and very homey. Indeed, a great find.

Perfect name

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this VRBO in Manhattan. Walked down to Aggieville on 2 occassions. Sat on the front porch...threw washers in the back yard...cooked breakfast before heading to the football game...relaxing stay! It was a warm weekend and we enjoyed the fact that the air conditioning worked well. Very nicely updated..great bathrooms and kitchen. I will always remember it because this is where I found out I will be a grandmother for the first time!!!! I love Manhattan and will check this home for availability whenever I plan a trip there!

Location

Within 1 block is the Kansas State University campus and the Beach Museum. Aggieville is just 1 1/2 blocks south and offers shopping, dining, and a great night life. The city park is just 1 block south of Aggieville. It offers a huge pool, a children's sprinkler park, a wonderful playground, and every Friday night during the summer a live band performs which is family oriented. The downtown district and Mall is only about 1 mile away. The newly opened Flinthills Discovery center would be a great place to explore.
