Stay at the top of Kansas!
After you climb to the top of Mount Sunflower about 30 miles from Sharon Springs, you'll want and need a very relaxing overnight stay. That place would be an 8-room, nice as they come, bed-and-breakfast found within a converted 1922 Methodist Church.
Firm but comfortable mattresses, very soft towels, soap that you don't see in chain motels, and a delicious breakfast is part of the basic package. All rooms have private baths, high-speed internet access, and individual heat and air units, as well as cable TV. Two handicapped-accessible rooms are exceptional and an elevator makes it easy to get around the three-level church.
Breakfast is served in the basement in a room that can convert into a conference room for 100!
We were there for The Happening. Later that day they were hosting a tea. They even topped their sugar cubes with personally crafted frosting flowers!
The local Wesleyan church owns the bed-and-breakfast now and the church ladies volunteer their time to run it.
A block off of the main street, it's easy to walk around town from the bed and breakfast.
