Travelers' Choice
Anderson Bed and Breakfast is located 2 blocks south of K-State and 3 blocks west of Aggieville and City Park. We have the best lodging reviews in Manhattan, Kansas due to our warm welcome, charming porches, chickens in the backyard (yes, fresh eggs for breakfast) and a lovely garden that is a bird watcher’s paradise. In the fall, sitting on the front porch overlooking the tree-lined, brick street in an old university neighborhood, you may enjoy listening to the KSU marching band practice and watching students walk to class or Aggieville. Our music room has great acoustics and a well-tuned grand piano. We pamper our guests with plush bedding and bath robes, en suite bathrooms, walk-in closets, vaulted ceilings, high-speed wi-fi, and HD flat screen TVs with cable. Breakfast is generous and delicious. Cook Phil specializes in quiche Lorraine, Dutch pancakes, firehouse frittata and the homemade blueberry muffins that won his wife, Dawn’s, heart and stomach 22 years ago. We tend to cater to a university clientele: K-State alumni, prospective students, parents, visiting faculty, guest speakers/artists and faculty candidates, but we are also military-friendly and LGBT-friendly. Guests interested in architecture will appreciate our 1910 Arts and Crafts-Style limestone house which was fully renovated into a modern bed & breakfast with three guest rooms in 2013. Your hosts, Dawn and Phil Anderson, are ready to welcome you to Manhattan!

Our focus was hiking at Konza Prairie. This property was exceptionally clean & quiet. There are wonderful common areas, ranging from large porches (open & screened) to a backyard patio & comfy reading room. Breakfast was a healthful offering of fresh eggs, avocado & homegrown tomato on a slice of homemade herbed french bread with sides of fresh fruit, asparagus & sausages with a selection of juices. Our hosts made us welcome & we felt relaxed & at home.

Anderson B&B might be the nicest B&B we’ve ever stayed at. We stopped over for one night on our way home from a long vacation - I had reserved in advance of our trip. What a lucky pick! The room and bathroom were immaculately clean. (!) My husband, daughter, and I all enjoyed the comfortable beds and the tasty, nutritious breakfast. It was obvious, even during our brief stay, why this establishment is so highly rated - the vibe was comfortable and inviting and the owners were accommodating and extremely pleasant. I highly recommend it!

My husband and I came to see our son play in the band at a football game and wanted somewhere else to stay that was close to campus. The room was very nice, spacious and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the linens were very comfy. Our room had an extra bed where our son stayed and was also very nice. The owners were wonderful and very welcoming. Loved sitting on the front porch swing in the evening and watching the chicken in the back yard. Breakfast was also wonderful. Would definetely stay there again.

Wonderful place, wonderful people. We stayed a week in a comfortable, spacious room in a beautiful neighborhood, close to KSU and everything else we were in Manhattan to visit. Do not miss Phil’s excellent breakfasts or the fresh cookies that keep appearing. We even invited guests to join us for breakfast it was so good. Phil and Dawn know Manhattan well and can give excellent recommendations for restaurants, things to do, etc. We will certainly be back. I can’t imagine visiting Manhattan and staying anywhere else.
