Taking a Texas tour for a week of rest. My wife (also a Rachel), loves vintage/rustic/repurposed things. She found the Prairie on the internet over two years ago and had been planning the someday stop. Every building in the property is unique, but has the comfy vintage feel.

The Prairie is perfect for a weekend get away when life is moving too fast with the Shabby Chic ethos evident throughout the property. The property is simple and elegant and the staff puts it over the top. You are given privacy, but when assistance is needed the staff is attentive to your needs. Case in point, we accidentally left... More

We wanted a quiet getaway to relax from our busy schedules and enjoy our 28th Wedding Anniversary. The Prairie did not disappoint. We stayed in Faith Cottage and it was absolutely perfect! The quiet atmosphere of the grounds and Faith Cottage was wonderful. Danny, Kathy, Kelly and Nicole were THE MOST hospitable. Breakfast was amazing each morning. We returned from... More

Not only did our cottage at the Prairie reflect the heart of what Rachel Ashwell's style conveys to me, but the welcoming lounge, delicious breakfast at farm tables and darling attention to details quietly weaved throughout just hugged us the entire few days we stayed. Loved it! And Kathy, our hostess, was delightful-- the perfect, warm representative of prairie couture.... More

My second time at the Prairie. Fantastic experience - perfect location, great breakfast, helpful staff, quiet and clean accommodations. We stayed at Lilluput Lodge. Wonderful! Can't wait to go back. No one wanted to leave.
