17 Fabulous One-Stop Weekend Escapes
Lawrence, Kansas: Circle S Ranch and Country Inn
Circle S Ranch and Country Inn is anything but rustic. Built in 1998, the ranch house resembles a plank-sided barn but has a dozen beautifully appointed rooms on three floors. You'll find a hot tub in the "silo" and a towering fireplace and leather couches in the glass-walled great room.
Guests settle into rockers on the long porch and hike trails that lead to pastures where cattle and buffalo graze. Relax in the country for an evening, or head to Lawrence (12 miles away) for restaurants and shopping (785) 843-4124).
