A quiet place in the country a short distance from Atchison, KS. And St Joseph, MO.
We have 4 dogs. They love company but we keep them away from the guest area. We also have free ranging chickens but they are skittish and won't bother anyone.
We are 15 minutes from Sparks, KS where the biggest flea market in the area takes place in the spring and fall.

Another great stay with Brenda. This time I brought my cat since I didn't have someone to take care of him at home. She was so great about letting me get him settled in and checked on both of us.

Another great stay with Brenda! Check in was even easier, and this time she made monster cookies.

It’s a very nice place away from everything situated in the middle of corn fields. Friendly hosts and dogs that are just as friendly.
