Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Matfield Green - Matfield Station -Middle- # 2

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

Apartment, Queen bed

Great lodging for travelers and vacationers, in the most beautiful part of the Flint Hills of Kansas, surrounded by the last remaining, original tallgrass prairie, never plowed. Three efficiency apartments, or 'casitas,' with views of the sunrise over the valley of the South Fork of the Cottonwood River.

Great for artist retreats, birdwatchers, hikers, trainwatchers, or just for peaceful weekend getaways, vacations, or sabbaticals. Built in 1924 by the Santa Fe Railroad, the bunkhouse is newly restored and comfortably furnished.

Just 50 feet from the BNSF tracks, this is a great place for viewing the trains. Restored by former Chicago architect Bill McBride, the building is well-insulated, air-conditioned, features radiant floor heating and all modern amenities.

Keywords: Studio-apartment, casita, Santa Fe Railroad, BNSF, Flint Hills, Artist Retreat, Train Watching, Hiking, Biking, Bird Watching, Running, Photography, Tallgrass Prairie, Chase County.

About Antonia Zoutenbier

We (Bill and Julia McBride) moved to Matfield Green, Kansas from the city of Chicago in 2006. We are city folks having a blast in the country. We love it so much we had to share it with someone - so our son Luke was born in 2007. Now we want to share our country life with you!

Antonia Zoutenbier purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Antonia Zoutenbier chose Kansas

We purchased Matfield Station in 2001 after our second trip to Chase County, Kansas. The historic Santa Fe building was one good rain away from collapse and we couldn't stand to see that happen. Bill, the architect, worked with our friend Pat, the carpenter, to restore the building - with Julia (and our friend and partner Karl Rohlich) cheering on the project. Bill and Julia lived at Matfield Station while we built our house just 400 feet away. We love the views, the open space, the fresh air, the horses across the road, the sunsets, and the wind on the prairie - and we know you will too.

Wildflower-Starlight-Greenfields Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Owner response was timely, and the description was accurate. A retreat from city sounds & distractions. Immersed in the lush, last standing tall grass prairie in the world, one might watch the clouds wrestle with the sun, or reflect on the millions of stars at night. Reward for those who want a break from meal prep'-Saddlerock Cafe, in Council Grove, or Ad Astra, in Strong City.
