Situated in the Flint Hills just one mile from the west side of Manhattan, Kansas, Prairiewood's Cottonwood Suite at the HomePlace is tucked into the hillside along the wooded Wildcat Creek Valley and offers exquisite guest lodging in a luxurious bed and bathroom suite. As a completely private, self-contained guest suite with abundant amenities, - and nearly 500 acres of Prairiewood's private tallgrass prairie preserve to explore - the Cottonwood Suite is designed to exceed expectations.

The space
The Cottonwood Suite at HomePlace is part of Prairiewood Retreat & Preserve. It is a single bedroom suite nestled into the lower, north-facing side of an authentic timber-frame home, and exudes romance and abundance. Attached to the personal home of the proprietors of Prairiewood Retreat, this "casita style" room has a completely separate entrance, with no interior door connection to the larger home making it comfortably private. The Cottonwood Suite offers spacious living quarters with spa-like features including two-person jacuzzi tub, gas fireplace, and comfort amenities including hospitality counter with mini fridge & microwave - and a patio with outdoor seating. And, the Cottonwood Suite has direct access to Prairiewood's miles of hiking trails through the tall grass prairie and to our very own Walnut Pond picnic area where fishing and canoeing await.

The dream and vision for Prairiewood began over 10 years ago. It all started with a simple vision for saving some of the native tallgrass prairie landscape in and around Manhattan, Kansas. We have worked diligently over the past 10 years to bring together all the pieces for such ... We have acquired land surrounded by native prairie ecology, created exquisite accommodations and meeting spaces, blazed miles of walking trails, and assembled a staff of tremendous individuals. Now, after officially opening in January of 2010, Prairiewood is a unique property set aside specifically as a prairie preserve to be offered for special events and uncommon lodging accommodations amongst the tallgrass prairie.

Whether an individual seeking a place to rest and renew, a couple celebrating a special anniversary, a small friends group looking for a unique and inspiring place to meet/stay, or a board-of-directors requiring a state-of-the-art meeting room, Prairiewood won't disappoint. From our first-class, carefully appointed accommodations to our world class guest service, everything at Prairiewood has been thoughtfully assembled to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience - and the secluded Cottonwood Suite is our amongst our most popular getaway options!

Other things to note
Prairiewood is very versatile. It is intentionally intimate, unusually private, and thoroughly welcoming. While just next to town, there is feeling of being a million miles away. The prairie has a subtle yet profound beauty that tends to calm our nerves and inspire our dreams. We always feel refreshed after spending time there, whether walking the trails or sipping coffee on the patio. We take great pleasure in sharing this very special place which we so love, and the Cottonwood Suite is a great expression of our desire to share this special place with those seeking a truly exquisite and unique experience.

We operate a boutique hospitality company in our hometown of Manhattan, Kansas, where we have spent the better part of our adult lives crafting sacred spaces that capture the magic and enchantment of our favorite places. Currently, our offerings are located in Manhattan, Kansas and on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota. With both of us native to Kansas, we made our first foray to the Northwoods of Minnesota in 1994, shortly after being newly married. Little did we know that initial 5-night paddling trip, launched from the end of the Gunflint Trail outside of Grand Marais, would lead to a lifetime of pursuing the Northwoods and everything it represents. In Kansas, we now own and operate a tallgrass prairie retreat & preserve in the Flint Hills outside of Manhattan. Prairiewood Retreat & Preserve has become a labor of love for us, and we thrive on offering distinctive lodging and event venues, nestled into the rolling hills of this prairie landscape. We love the gentle beauty of the prairie - a sublime beauty the soaks slowly into your soul rather than hits you abruptly! We find the Northwoods of Minnesota to be similar in that regard. Whether the quiet lapping of waves against a rock shore, the distant haunting call of a loon, the silent rise of a full moon over Lake Superior, or the crackle of a wood fire on a frigid snowy night, we find the essence of the Northwoods to invigorate our hearts and spirits. We can't think of anything more fulfilling than sharing some of our favorite places in the world, in hopes that they will be as enriching to our guests as they are to us. Welcome to our little slices of heaven!
