Loved the cozy cabin but was not aware they had no hot water for a bath or shower. The cabin was very clean and right across the street from the Wilder home and museum. There were plenty of other places to visit with a short drive and the staff was very helpful in giving us tips on where to dine and visit. I just thought that when a bath and shower was advertised it would include hot water.
This place was perfect for our weekend getaway. I found about them through SMORR and I’m glad we stayed here. Owner is extremely accommodating and nice. We had a fully stocked kitchen with plates and paper towels, microwave and fridge, soap and towels in the bathroom and great bedding. The cabin is the perfect size, well maintained deck and table, chairs for relaxing outside in the morning. Nice grill on the deck. It’s priced just right for what you get.
We had a great visit. The cabin was well stocked, clean, quiet. Very close to shopping areas and the downtown square. The Lara Ingalls Wilder Home was closed during our visit. We got to see the cave on the property, and it is very interesting. Lots of area for outside activities, be sure and check their website for seasonal rates.
Having passed down the love for Laura Ingalls Wilder (LIW) and read all the books with my daughter, we decided to visit her Mansfield home. Being ones who enjoy a more natural setting (vs. hotel) we found Mansfield Woods to suit us perfectly! We rented a one room cabin and stayed two nights. The staff was friendly and attentive making sure that we were in need of nothing. We were given instructions on how to drive back to cabins as they are located at back of property. The gravel road has a few large holes in it that are more suitable for a truck than minivan, but they can be easily driven around. The small gravel parking lot behind the cabins can make for close parking, but all guests were courteous of each other. We parked right behind our cabin which we found to be clean and tidy. The open bedroom (no wall between it and rest of cabin) was right within the back door to the cabin (off the parking lot), bathroom is between bedroom and kitchen/living room with deck located off kitchen. The deck was our favorite with a small table and chairs on it, overlooking a small pond. Mansfield Woods is located across the road from the LIW Museum and Home, but cabins may be too far away for some to walk. …
Mansfield Woods has lovely, small cabins with back decks complete with grill, charcoal, twin beds, bath, small kitchen and breakfast area and couch sitting area. The cabins are set in a wooded area...great hosts at the main house...Barb is very attentive to your needs. Parking right by your back door...If you like you can walk to the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum (just a short part on the highway). when we were there the fishing pond was in the process of refurbishment....There is a cave on the property that is mentioned in the Laura books. the owners can give you a guided tour of it.There is also a RV campground next door. The drive to Mansfield Woods goes through the RV campground.
It’s not quite what was expected but works for a quick over night stay. While there is a window unit it’s not very efficient. The cabin is clean and has indoor plumbing. It works if you need a place in the area and in a pinch.
We stayed here to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder musem and house just across the road. The cabin was extremely neat and and clean and very cozy. Also very quiet. I would highly recommend this place to others and I would love to return myself one day soon.
We stayed while visiting Mansfield for the dedication for the new Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum. We had a wonderful time! Very quiet and peaceful. Very accessible from the road and lawn well kept. Comfortable beds and nice kitchen area with a grill on the deck but also a hand microwave. Bathroom very nice and clean. Will definitely be back.
The cabin was very clean and neat. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we could need, even coffee. A basket with a great variety of tea, even honey for the tea, bags of popcorn, creamer for the coffee and ice cubes The cabin was very clean and inviting. The basket with a variety of teas, even honey for the tea, bags of popcorn, coffee and creamer were a special touch. Even ice cubes in the freezer.There were plenty of towels and bedding, even a hand stitched quilt on the bed. Time didn't allow for exploring, and weather was not nice, but we plan to return. Barb couldn't have been nicer.
Quiet, clean and comfortable We really enjoyed our stay here. Went for a sister's outing to Laura Ingalls Wilder home and Baker Creek Heritage festival. Everything was close by, we got some excellent recommendations for things to do locally from Barb- the locally produced play "Laura's Memories" was a highlight for me. The cabins are small, clean and quiet. The deck outside was the best- a beautiful view and relaxing place to sit and visit and enjoy the morning. We did explore the cave for a bit, with loaned head lamps from Barb. The cabins have small kitchens, grills on the deck (we didn't use them) and some simple, thoughtful amenities- fresh good coffee for the coffee maker, assorted tea bags and citronella candles on the tables on the deck. Would definitely recommend for a family outing or simple retreat.…
