Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Bazaar - True Prairie Home, Bazaar, KS

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom + Den, Sleeps 6

Settled far out in the Tallgrass Prairie of the rolling Flint Hills, with wide and endless views in all directions from a private hilltop, the True Prairie Home stands up to its name. In all seasons the house is surrounded by the magnificent and unique sea of grass. More than half of the year, the grasslands present the black dots of roaming cattle, everywhere. In late March / early April, the winter grasses are burned, with the prairie fires and their black earth aftermath a sight to see—the more so when knowing the young grasses will sprout up immediately after and color the rejuvenated prairie in fabulous greens. From the house, the prairie opens up a large pasture to hikers, painters, photographers, and dreamers. On all four sides the house has inviting porches for lazy gazing, reading and, again, for dreaming away…

All rooms in the True Prairie Home, which was custom built by local craftsmen from native limestone blocks, have huge windows which frame the natural art of the prairie. Handmade walnut doors, cabinets, floors, and staircase, complement the extensive interior stonework. The ample wall space and soaring ceilings provide a backdrop for the truly great, original art collected by the owners. The style presents a tasteful blend of the old days with contemporary design. On the first floor the living area is centered around a beautiful twenty foot stone wall and fireplace; the kitchen is fully equipped with tasteful materials and modern appliances; and the rustic dining table seats eight. The master bedroom features an interior stone wall, a large adjoining bath, and French doors opening to the expansive porch. On the second floor, you will find another large bedroom, bath, and a spacious den; complete with Western art and a queen size leather sleeper sofa.

And everywhere you look, the setting will take your breath away and stay in your soul…

About Debbie Langdon

Although we are both now retired, we have had long careers; Jerry in the area of city planning and Deb in educational psychology. We now have more time to devote to our interests in history, design, and environmental preservation.

Why Debbie Langdon chose Kansas

We first came to the Flint Hills about 20 years ago and, like most people, we were immediately mesmerized by it. Although we lived in Kansas City, we found we were being constantly drawn back to the prairie and Cottonwood Falls. After several years of weekend trips here, we realized we definitely needed a more permanent place in the Flint Hills to live. That realization began a long search lasting several years for an historic stone house to renovate. When this search did not result in any possibilities we decided to find the perfect site for its view of the land and build a home - but to construct it with an old stone exterior. We purchased an old stone barn for its beautiful stone and in 2006 the project began. Today we have our perfect getaway home for long or short stays, enjoyed by just ourselves or our friends, or by our five children and their friends. We have already enjoyed a family Thanksgiving here, celebrating with over 30 family members. Also, we have had one wonderful wedding here with the guests dancing far into the warm, star-filled summer night. Visitors have never forgotten their time here as it makes an indelible mark on their souls. Many have returned again and again for the raw beauty of the vistas in every direction, the serene quiet, and, of course, the spectacular sunsets.

This home helped our family reconnect with each other and the Flint Hills.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to reconnect with loved ones and the beauty of the prairie, Generous porches helped us see sunsets and moonrises that our city life can't offer. The house is beautiful inside and out, like a dear friend. The owner responded quickly, very helpful and kind. I recommend this home most highly.

Beautiful Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for a girls' weekend retreat! We cooked wonderful meals, drank wine on the incredible wrap-around porch and enjoyed the evening breeze watching fire flies under a beautiful star-lit prairie sky. The perfect weekend to unplug and unwind. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

very nice & peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the solitude, watched the storms roll in and loved the native wildflowers!

All the creature comforts in the home were available.

The 360 degree view inside the house and wraparound porch made it quite nice!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this house for a Christmas gift for a weekend away with my parents. None of us were disappointed. The house is gorgeous. Every room was comfortable and unique. I couldn't get enough of the upstairs den. My dad said the view from every window was like a live Judith Mackey painting. I agree. We ate in several meals and I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. We also had a good dinner in Cotton Wood Falls at the Hotel. Our boys were with us so we did some hiking and saw some wildlife. The quiet noise was refreshing. Our only suggestion would be to bring your own water and plenty of it. The water has a strong odor that is a little hard to take. Otherwise we were most pleased with our weekend getaway.
