Tucked in land of Oz


Amongst all this rural splendor conveniently rooms2stay, a petite BnB that is BiG on hospitality, is situated. There are three private rooms available in this 100-plus-year-old historic home (all modern amenities of course) positioned on a red-bricked, maple tree-lined street. The hostess (Cat) lives on site with her small dog, Oli. He, a backup wireless doorbell, will greet you at the sound of the first doorbell chime with the sound of his people then goes to his protective security base of operations underneath the hostess's bed for most of the duration of your stay where he protects all.  If the event she is out of town, she has handpicked a co-host who usually outdoes her breakfasts and wows everyone! 

Forget about being a “customer” at a sterile hotel, instead, be treated to a human experience as a “guest” in this 100yo quaint, homey yet nicely appointed bed and breakfast with the modern amenities you would expect.


rooms2stay is an ideal short term stay for overnight business travelers, visiting college parents (ask about college graduate weekend package) and visiting professors or guest performers. Great location  for weddings guests, graduations, need space for family reunions or someone just in transit through the area. This home has been authorized and inspected by the city. Not handicap accessible, nor suitable for children and no pets, please. Not suited as a honeymoon locale.  However bridal party overnight stays before the wedding day is welcomed (see enhancement packages tab on desktop web page).    Smoke-free environment.  


Breakfast has been mentioned, at no extra fee.  If you want to invite friends there is a small fee for non-staying guests. Matter of fact there is no additional fees other than what Uncle Sam wants.   

In this corner of Oz is Baldwin City (KS), a quaint, one traffic light, bedroom community. The NE region of the state is green and hilly with enough fertile cultivated land to make you appreciate and be proud of our farmers. Situated 20 miles from Lawrence and Ottawa (location of Kansas University and Ottawa University), Baldwin City is approximately a 1-hour drive south of  Kansas City MCI airport and 40 minutes from K-City for that bigger urban fix.  


But don't underestimate the rural beat of the country! Baldwin City is home to the main campus of Baker University, the oldest private university in the state. This place has something for everyone! A vibrant rural agricultural community  (AgEco) offering lots of fun unique activities, local sporting events, music venues in the surrounding area, history (re-enactments) to explore, vineyards, Kansas Belle dinner train, entertainment rides like Polar Express™Train Ride or  variety of Peanuts™ adventures (done quarterly) via Midland  Railroad plus area secret treasure discoveries that are off the beaten path. Just up a block there is a unique bookstore/coffee spot/and bar (The Nook) in the evening along with an outdoor patio to leisurely enjoy.  The Lumberyard Arts Center always has something fun going on and inner-city park (locally affectionately known as the Lotatorium is recasting itself later this year) complete with a stage, large viewing screen, splash pad, concessions, seating.  And then, of course, there is the city's signature event: Baldwin City's annual Maple Leaf Festival!
