Meet Your Hosts

Kail, Becky, Emily, Gabriel and Anna

We fell in love with the Flint Hills tallgrass prairie when we each came to Manhattan to attend Kansas State University. Now, some 20 years later after graduating, we have made the Flint Hills our home — and Prairiewood our labor of love. Together with our three children, we enjoy the charm of Manhattan living, K-State sports, and the great outdoors of this special place.

Prairiewood is very unique and very versatile. We strive to make it intentionally intimate, unusually private, and thoroughly welcoming. While just next to town, there is feeling of being a million miles away. The land has a subtle yet profound beauty that tends to calm our nerves and inspire our dreams. We take great pleasure in sharing this very special place which we so love.
