Prairie Moon Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 5 Hutchinson B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is a 3 suite B&B in a town that has few B&B offerings. We stayed in "The Library" on the second floor. The other suites are "The Artist's Loft" (also on the second floor) and the "The Nature Loft" which despite it's 'lofty' appellation is located on the ground floor.

The Library offers a separate bedroom with a comfortable king size bed, a hallway kitchen (equipped with the usual B&B tools - cork screw, coffee maker, microwave, etc.) combination living/dining room sized for 2 and a generous bath. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of fresh coffee and, to their credit, the coffee maker was spotless. Often kitchenette coffee makers are stained and grungy. That was not the case at Prairie Moon.

Parking was ample, both on street and off street. The suite was clean, and unlike many B&B's light housekeeping was provided daily. Wireless Internet was provided, but the access code of 26 (yes, I counted) random letters and digits was unnecessarily complex and difficult to enter accurately.

Unlike many B&B's breakfast at Prairie Moon is not a communal dining affair. Instead, microwavable entrées, fruit, juice and bread/pastry items were left in refrigerator each day for the following day's breakfast. The food was tasty, satisfying. Not elaborate, but not pre-processed.

My only complaint with Prairie Moon was with the unfriendly tone of several small guest information cards left throughout the suite. Cautions about "sneaking in" non-paying guests, leaving coffee stains on the bed, and other admonitions generally heard only from the mothers of sloppy teens or grouchy grandmothers were unwarranted. I assume that these reminder cards have their genesis in the previous experiences of the proprietors of Prairie Moon, but to paint all of your guests with such a broad brush seems unnecessarily harsh given the typical clientele of B&B establishments. But I've never run a B&B so who knows. It did dull the otherwise positive vibe.

Overall the Prairie Moon offers a quite, peaceful alternative to the hotel offerings of Hutchinson, Kansas. We will be repeat visitors.
