The Prairie was everything we expected furnished in Rachel's wonderful style. The furniture was luxurious and we slept like pampered royalty. Danny's morning breakfasts were fabulous. If you want quiet relaxation travel Monday - Wednesday as there are fewer travelers during the early part of the week. We had the run of the place and loved it. Would love to... More

I am a huge fan of Rachel Ashwell and have all of her shabby chic books! My Husband and I came to stay at the Prairie to celebrate our our Wedding Anniversary. We booked the Seabury Suite which was in the main house on the property called Lilliput Lodge. The Lodge consists of three bedrooms which can be rented out... More

Our rooms were lovely.. very comfortable and gorgeously decorated. (We also very much appreciated the coffee and the selection of teas that were available on our late arrival.) Everything about The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell is charming, inviting, welcoming, peaceful, and serene; from the wonderful staff to the native plant gardens full of butterflies and a sweet, little bunny!

I had never heard of Rachel Ashwell and only had limited knowledge with Shabby Chic but by wife knew both very, very well. In an effort to provide her with an outstanding birthday celebration I chose to reserve the Faith Cottage at The Prairie. Apparently I was lucky to even complete a reservation there because of their popularity but I... More

I have been a big fan of Rachel Ashwell for 20 years. I was shocked when I found out she owns a bed and breakfast just 2 hours from my house! I started planning my trip right away. The Cornflower Cottage is so beautiful. The bed was like a fluffy yet firm hug. The property is beautiful. Lots of great... More

I couldn't wait to visit The Prairie, especially after reading Rachel's Prairie Couture book. My husband and I stayed in the Shabby Shack and loved the country setting, the perfectly aged patina of the structures, and the shabby chic decor. Danny and Kathy were wonderful hosts and made us two delicious breakfasts. We also enjoyed loving on sweet Pearl the... More

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. I believe this place is where simplistic vintage and comfort started. The... More

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
