Our group of bicyclists (2 couples and 2 single guys) stayed in 3 rooms May 13. From the time we arrived until we checked out our visit was better than we expected. Owner Dawn joined us for a cold beverage in the parlor and gave us recommendations on dinner. Our rooms, outfitted in antiques, were very comfortable and quiet. Our... More

This Inn rates so well we have been there 4 times. Lovely and quaint but yet up to date. The honeymoon cottage has the largest jet tub we have been in. The 'on-demand' water heater WILL keep up. Ask for WI FI code since the 'open' channel is weak. LOVE this place. Guys - Buy the basket for your wife!

We loved the Cottage House B&B. We traveled with six teenagers who were competing in the state scholars' bowl meet. Everyone loved the Cottage House with it's beautiful antiques and unique rooms. It provided a great spot for us to walk to the other historic sites in town. I recommend this inn to everyone for any reason at all!

I've stayed at the Cottage House on my Kansas visits over the past 30 years. The place has definitely taken a nose dive. We stayed in the motel part and were greeted by dirty ashtrays and a toilet plunger left by the front door. There were flies (due to holes in bathroom screens) and the flyswatter sat next to the...

This is a hotel and a motel as well. We opted to stay in the Motel. It could use some TLC, but overall, it was quiet, it was nice and cozy and a very large room and bathroom. Close to downtown and everything we wanted to do as well.

Our family has been staying at the Cottage House for an annual family reunion for over 30 years. Due to unforeseen circumstances this year we had to cancel the event. Not only can one not cancel a room two weeks prior to the reservation, the Cottage House charges a $30 fee prior to the two week date. Be aware of... More

We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Cottage House. When making the reservation we were given the option of having dinner on site. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a delicious meal with a great bottle of wine. We had the bison tenderloin steak and salmon. The meal is served in courses with a lemon sorbet offered before... More

Spoiler alert... This was my hometown growing up... But after traveling around the world in the Air Force I know outstanding! We always stay here (ask for rooms in the main building... I prefer 200, 202, 208) when I'm back visiting my Mom. Staff is friendly, furnishings are elegant, breakfast is filling... Front porch is a great place to slow... More

I have stayed at the Cottage House several times the last 10 years during business trips to the area. I try to stay in a different room each stay as this is a wonderful step back in time. The owners were pleasant and friendly. I recommend this hotel to all, especially those that need a temporary change in pace.

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Cottage House for 2 nights during a celebration of his great aunt's 100th birthday last weekend in Council Grove, KS. We thoroughly enjoyed not only the largeness of the period room (#108) but also the locally sourced and organic ingredients & fresh herbs that Dawn so lovingly included... More
