“Peaceful, clean, wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2010

I have stayed at this little motel several times over the years - always a wonderful, relaxing experiance.
Just a short stroll to downtown for the Friday night music at Emma Chase and the sound of the Cottonwood Falls rolling and splashing will lull you to sleep each night.
Very cool retro style - all original, clean, pleasing place to stay.

This place is unique-- have you ever seen a motel built of stone? Our room was nicely decorated, original art pieces on the wall, great bed. We were there on a snowy winter day, but I would love to go back during warm weather, and sit on the deck overlooking the river.
Walking distance to the historic little downtown, and jut down the road from the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve (our reason for being there.)

My aunt, who grew up in Cottonwood Falls, discovered this gem, and my mom, spouse, brother and cousins, all of whom live out-of-state, are so very glad she did. After a long flight east from California to visit relatives in Cottonwood, my husband and I are comforted knowing that we just have to get ourselves to the Millstream, where the peaceful sounds of the Cottonwood River, serene grounds, and cutely decorated rooms await us. And did I mention the owners of the Millstream? They strive to make your stay as restful, or as activity-filled, as you desire. And did I mention the location? The Millstream is just a short walk from downtown Cottonwood Falls and its historic Courthouse---a must see.

My husband and I discovered the Millstream Motel in Cottonwood Falls several years ago and have returned numerous times since then. Not only are the proprietors (Richard & Sharon Clute) warm and welcoming, the Millstream is like turning a page back in history. It blends well with the town of Cottonwood Falls in that you feel as if you are lulled into an earlier decade of all things "good and kind." The Millstream sits on the Cottonwood River with tall, magnificent trees, peony bushes, Rose of Sharon's, and other perennials dotting the grounds of this wonderful place. The rooms are tastefully and comfortably decorated, and with the sound of the river falls right outside your window, it makes for a deep night's sleep! We've recommended the Millstream to many friends - all whom have returned grateful for us letting the "best kept secret" in Kansas out of the bag!

I am a single mom with three children (11, 13, 15) and we LOVE going to Cottonwood Falls, KS and staying at the Millstream. We first heard about the Millstream 3 years ago, and try to go as often as we can- and my kids don't ever want to leave once we are there. We love the beautifully decorated rooms, the relaxing & quiet atmosphere, and especially the wonderful and friendly owners, Richard & Sharon - they treat us like family. Each room has a coffee pot, refrigerator and a microwave. These rooms are VERY Clean! They go over-the-top in customer service at the Millstream. It is worth the trip whether you are staying one night, or two. (Haven't had the opportunity to stay a week, but would love to sometime), It is an awesome place to go and get away from the everyday hectic & busy life-style at home, without having to travel very far. There is a lake near-by too that my kids love to go and swim at and have a picnic in the hot summer months. "The Millstream Rocks", as my kids say.

We spent our New Year's Eve celebration at The Millstream with an atmosphere as welcoming as a B&B. The rooms were very clean, neat, and tastfully decorated. We appreciated your directing us to the quaint local shops in town and the fabulous celebration dinner at a local restaurant. Thank you, Richard and Sharon, for making us feel right at home in such peaceful surroundings with the soothing sound of the river in your very own backyard. Coffee was left at our door step in the morning; what a treat!

Thank you for a most memorable and relaxing New Year's Eve.

My husband and I have been going to the Millstream for about 3 years now and absolutely love it. The rooms are decorated is such a way that you immediately feel like you're at home. Richard and Sharon, the owners are very accomodating and we've become good friends just from our visits.
The motel and its' surroundings are extremely relaxing.

Highly recommend it!!!
