I loved staying at this renewed old hotel right in the middle of everything Cottonwood Falls has to offer (which is a lot more than you'd ever dream of!) and only a few minutes away from the National Park Service/Nature Conservancy Tallgrass Preserve. The street is not quite a cul de sac, brick paving, very slow drivers, and dead quiet at night. My very large B&B room had the advantages of a B&B with, if you want, the speed and privacy of a hotel. Breakfast is in the dining areas and all your other meals can be too (tip: the entree salads are delicious and imaginative -- hot grilled steak chunks cooked to your order with greens and pan-browned potatoes, to name just one -- don't miss trying one if you like salads!). Good wine by the glass list and full bar, too. Service was great everywhere, on the spot yet unintrusive. The combination of the Grand Central and the area is unbeatable and I'm sorry I had a deadline and couldn't stay for several more days.
This is not the cozy homey private home kind of B&B, if that's what you're looking for. With so many things to do, it worked out better for me. Lots of work space and plenty of easily accessible electrical outlets, and my room had a great bathroom with a shower with a real door, comfy armchairs and desk chair, lots of luggage storage space. Private patio with table and chairs and hummingbirds working the trumpet vines over the fence for nice weather. Good air conditioning (combined with ceiling fan made for real comfort), good spot lighting. A very lightweight comforter for the bed made just the right temperature for me. Soft sheets, lots of pillows, and did I mention the big thick thirsty bath towels? I can't wait to go back for another salad and another steak and more exploring the area!
