The Barn, Bed and Breakfast Inn...

opened its doors to guests March 30, 1986. At that time there was some doubt whether anyone would want to spend the night in a renovated barn. Twelve years and 100,000 guests have answered that question in the affirmative.

It is a real 107-year old barn. It was first designed with horse stanchions and a milking parlor and provided a roof for the year's hay crop. It has served as a pig farrowing house just before it became an inn.

We have been told that the U.S. Cavalry used to water their horses at a spring not far from THE BARN and that Buffalo Bill Cody slept here with his horse. We surmise the rates were lower but he did not enjoy our indoor pool. The folks of yesteryear would not believe their eyes if they could see THE BARN today.

Built in the beautiful rolling hills of northeast Kansas, it is Jefferson County's first bed & breakfast inn. People looking for rest and relaxation come to visit us and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. THE BARN is located on a surface road just off Highway K-4 between Atchison and Topeka. We are close to urban centers and an hour from the Kansas City aiport.

Shortly after opening THE BARN as a bed and breakfast inn, we could see the need for more guest rooms and meeting rooms. In October 1989 we opened our addition, bringing the number of guest rooms from nine to 20. Two new living rooms and an indoor heated pool were also added.

The guest rooms have king- or queen-size beds and private baths. Guests are served supper the evening they arrive and every evening they spend with us, plus a full breakfast every morning.

We are in the country, so we have plenty of space for walking and bicycling. We have a recreation and fitness room available for our guests, as well.

There are no televisions or telephones in the rooms to disturb you, but there is a television available for guests in the living room. If you want to sightsee, the small towns and Perry Lake provide rural charm and scenic beauty. The county is sprinkled with antique and craft stores and numerous events are scheduled throughout the year.

THE BARN is a family owned and operated business. We welcome you to make yourself at home while you are here. Most of all, we want to offer you an enjoyable, peaceful, and restful stay.
