I'm not big on this rating stuff, but I'm submitting this for Vara's Guest House; they deserve it. It's a great place to stay for any reason. Mine happened to be business.

Thank you Trent for taking time out of your busy day to post a review about your extended stay with us. It was truly our pleasure to have you as a guest in La Casita. We look forward also to seeing what life is like in your neck of the woods back in Iowa. By the way...we love the music of your band....Volcano Boys...especially the drum sounds you perform in the background. Great Stuff!

My husband I needed a place to stay and couldn't find anything! Luckily we happened upon this wonderful place online! It quiet, clean and comfortable. Alex and Cindy (owners) are the nicest people and will do anything to make sure you are happy. We really enjoyed socializing with them and the other guests and even go into the hot tub which was perfect! Definitely recommend to anyone going that way!

My husband and I needed to get out of town, yet still be close to home. Vara's guesthouse was perfect! We had a wonderful room in the newest cabin. We got to relax and we were treated so amazing and wanted to stay longer. We will certainly go back as soon as we can.

I spent the valentines weekend with this lovely family. Their home had that warm and cozy feeling. They fix you the best breakfast ever (no donuts). For dinner my guest and I had steaks cooked out on the grill. It was everything and more. Looking forward to coming back next month.

My fiancee and I got jobs in Midland and needed a place to stay for a while. We looked all around a various extended stay motels and all of them seemed to be a bit overpriced. My neice then found the Vara Guest House on craigslist and decided to call, when I found that they were modestly cheaper we booked a room with them. At first arrival we noticed that the house was very neat and clean and the room they had us in was very homey. Not only were we very comfortable in our stay but we also made some friends for life. If you are ever in this area THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY!!!! Thank you so much for your generosity and kind spirits Alex and Cyndi, we will see you again real soon.

We were passing through the Midland area and didn't want to be stuck in an overpriced generic hotel. So, we decided to make the easy drive through GC and try out this B&B. We loved everything about our visit at Vara. The rooms were super comfortable and clean, the hosts were generous and kind and the breakfast was wonderful. We didn't want to leave. We will visit again.

At first I was hesitant to stay in Garden City because of the 30 minute drive to Midland but it was so worth it. Midland is a weekly travel destination for me and they have my business from now on. Super friendly, good food, comfortable beds and quiet. Kind of like staying at Grandma's.

Room Tip: If you don't mind sharing a bath any room will be fine.
