6. Hotel at Old Town (Wichita)
My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel at Old Town, so I can tell you firsthand that the historic warehouse-building-turned hotel is a gem! My favorite part (aside from the in-room Jacuzzi)? The delicious, complimentary breakfast!
7. C&W Ranch Bed & Breakfast (Smolan)
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city when you visit this true working ranch. Enjoy home-cooked meals, animal sightings, and the kind of hospitality that can only be found in the Kansas countryside.
8. Grand Central Hotel & Grill (Cottonwood Falls)
It's a hotel; it's a restaurant; it's both (and so much more)! The Grand Central Hotel, which was named an 8 Wonders of Kansas finalist, serves up rustic (and extremely comfortable) rooms, fabulous food, and a location just steps away from charming downtown Cottonwood Falls.

Imagine waking up from a restful night's sleep to this scenic view of the Flint Hills. Heaven, right? The view isn't the only thing that makes Clover Cliff Ranch a win--this 1883 bed and breakfast also offers opportunities for outdoor recreation including hiking, stargazing, wildlife sightings, and more.
10. Swedish Country Inn (Lindsborg)
Dreaming of a European vacation without all the travel expenses? If you answered yes, the Swedish Country Inn is the answer! Get swept away to Sweden when you stay in your tastefully decorated room, while enjoying authentic Swedish foods for breakfast, and shopping the neighboring businesses around "Little Sweden, U.S.A."
11. Circle S Ranch & Country Inn (Lawrence)
"Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam..." Seriously, you're likely to see all kinds of animals roaming the hills of Lawrence! Not only that, but you can also schedule horseback riding, hay rides, pony rides, and more during your stay (for an additional fee).
