Tucked in land of Oz


Amongst all this rural splendor conveniently sits rooms2stay, a boutique BnB that is BiG on hospitality. There are three private rooms available in this 100-plus-year-old historic home (equipped with modern amenities and little touches not normally provided by other lodging facilities).  The location is positioned on a red-bricked, maple tree-lined street. You will be greeted by a human. The hostess (Cat) lives on site with her small dog, Oli, the backup doorbell, will greet you with the sound of his people, usually after the sound of the first doorbell ("Ring" video device) chime then scampering to his protective security base of operations underneath the hostess's bed for the duration of your stay. He's an only barker at your first arrival, go figure? In the event Cat is out of town, she has handpicked a co-host who usually outdoes her with his breakfasts and wows everyone!  A keypad entry code will be provided for your coming and goings, on the back door nearest the covered carport designated for guest parking.  Longer-term stays are negotiable. 


rooms2stay is an ideal short-term stay for overnight business travelers, visiting college parents (ask about college graduate weekend package), and visiting professors or local guest performers. Need extra space for visiting family members to look no further!  It's also a great location for wedding guests, and graduations.  rooms2stay is suited as a honeymoon locale.  However bridal party overnight stays before the wedding day is welcomed. This home has been authorized and inspected by the city. rooms2stay is not handicap accessible, nor suitable for children and no pets please. This is a smoke-free environment.  


Breakfast is no extra fee for guests.  If you want to invite friends over for breakfast there is a small fee for non-staying guests.   Be sure to ask Cat, who in concierge-style, has put together some " guest experiences" should you have some extra time to spare during your stay.  

This corner of Oz is a small step back in time into this quaint, one traffic light, bedroom community.  Baldwin City located in the NE region  Kansas is bucolic in its fertile  farmlands experienced in the four seasons, colorful trees (yes trees in KS!), and natural peace. 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 where you can still hear church bells and echoing train horns! 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) with a bounty of offerings and fun unique activities, local sporting events, live music venues, history (re-enactments) to explore, vineyards, entertaining train rides on the  Kansas Belle dinner train (to reopen after the pandemic restrictions are lifted) plus area-secret-treasures that are off the beaten path for discovering. Just a block away from room2stay is a unique bookstore/coffee spot/and bar (The Nook)  with an outdoor patio to leisurely enjoy and mom and pop restaurants.  The Lumberyard Arts Center always has local fun going ons and an inner-city park (with a stage and big screen tv) holds promise to outdoor happenings.  And then, of course, there is the city's signature annual event: Baldwin City's annual Maple Leaf Festival in October that is a highlight!
