Certificate of Excellence
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!

This is the second time we have stayed with Phil and Dawn and we absolutely loved it. Every detail of this immaculate home is just perfect. The rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts are amazing. Phil's homemade craisin bread and quiche was THE BOMB!
