My youngest is loves animals and more specifically camels so we stayed a weekend here mid July. It is a nice bed and breakfast, large working farm, and a lot of animals to play with a feed. My kids are asking when we will go back. We were greeted when we arrived and shown to our room and a quick...

We went spent the night at Hedrick's this past spring break with our two children and had a good old fashion time. They took very good care of us, great tour with the animals, and very nice breakfast. My 9 year old daughter who loves animals had the best time and still talks about it.

Truly a unique place to stay. We (myself, wife, daughter), stayed in the Pride of Kansas Suite. The room was very large, an unusual combination in that it was bordering on "nice" but also felt a bit like a farmhouse living room. The place is obviously not your typical hotel -- but it is refined enough while maintaining it's small...

We had so much fun! I've been to Kenya and on safari and I didn't get as up close and friendly with the animals there as what we did here. Nigel the giraffe was amazing. It was obvious these animals are well cared for and loved. They had animals that Wichita zoo doesn't even have - this is much better...

I'd heard about this little-known jewel from an acquaintance, and it didn't disappoint. If you're heading to Hutch for the Cosmosphere, Salt Museum, or anything else, you won't want to miss Hedricks. Where else could you feed giraffes and kangaroos and watch camels, zebras, a zedonk, alpacas, ostriches, a really cool hybrid peacock and tons of other exotic creatures, while...

We had a wonderful stay at the Hedrick B&B! Needless to say the animals were the icing on the cake and are what truly made the stay WONDERFUL for us! Personally, we would describe our room as "unique." You are not staying in a 5 star, luxury hotel. This is a working farm with sand, mud etc. However, that being...

This was an excellent experience. There were NO negatives. I had read the other reviews prior to staying and none of the negative applied. Rooms are beautiful and you are staying very close to adorable animals. There was NO smell. Facilities are so very very clean. They burned some nice candles, during our stay there was no animal smell at...

Just spent a night at the most interesting B&B ever. Got to feed kangaroos, giraffes and camels. The kids had a great time. The only complaint we had was with another group that couldn't control their kids. They were so noisy and out of control that the rest of us couldn't enjoy it as much as I'm sure we'd have...

Stayed the night with my daughter and two grandchildren. This is the best for anyone who is an animal lover. Molly was our hostess and she was great. She was very knowledgeable about the animals and had a wonderful sense of humor. We had so much fun. Anyplace I can touch and pet the animals, I'm there. Follow their advise,...

Had driven by Hedricks several times when visiting family in the area and always talked about checking it out. When we got ready for our spring break visit we checked out the website for more information and saw that we could do a tour. After getting everyone together we called and got our tour reservation that afternoon - and yes...
