Not just another B&B……  

Country serenity and the comforts of home.

Prairie Oaks Inn strives to be more than just another Bed and  Breakfast.  While we are a nice place to stay, we hope you view us as your final destination.  Our accommodations and meals are comfortable and in keeping with our country roots.  We are also the home of the Flying M Ranch which is a working alpaca ranch specializing in Suri Alpacas, we are active in Kansas AgriTourism and promoting Kansas Made products and services.  Also on the property is the home of the Don Brownlee family.  You will want to pay special attention to what that house has to offer visitors.

The basis of the B&B facility is a large oak log home offering nearly 8,000 square feet of comfort and opportunity.  It is quite common to see deer, turkey, pheasant, coyotes and even bobcats while relaxing on the deck in the mornings and evenings.  Three and a half miles away in the town of Sylvia is the house where we raised our family.  It will be available to rent by the night for groups, with the two properties we can accommodate large groups for reunions, conferences and other events.  On the grounds are different picturesque areas perfect for outdoor weddings.  There are also many who have used these areas for family and senior pictures as well.

Located in south central Kansas you will find yourself close to many attractions: In Hutchinson there is the Cosmosphere and Space Museum (part of the Smithsonian) and Imax theater, the Underground Salt Mine Museum, Kansas State Fair; Quivera National Wildlife Refuge; Fort Hays, Fort Larned, Fort Dodge, Dodge City and more are all interesting places to visit.  There is a pond on the premises, guests can use the row boat, canoe, fish (catch and release).  There is excellent hunting in the area as well as a great opportunity to simply watch wildlife.

The hope for our guests is that they have as relaxing or as exciting a stay as they wish.
