A comfortable bed, a delicious homemade breakfast, fresh country air, and a beautiful Kansas sunrise. This is the peaceful existence you can experience at Trego County’s newest lodging destination, the Country Barn Loft B & B.
Lifetime county residents Jerry and Peggy White moved the historic 1951 barn onto their two-acre private property in 1999, and over the years it has served many purposes before taking on a new life as a bed & breakfast.
With an eye toward maintaining the look of a working barn, the Whites have chosen to use repurposed barn wood for the original arched ceiling and walls, and sliding “barn” style interior doors and ceiling fans complete the upscale country look of this historic building. There are eight beds available for guests, with four located in the upstairs hayloft suite where families can enjoy the large space in separate bedrooms under skylights that make the whole space feel light and airy.
Quaint balconies on all four sides of the barn offer an expansive view of pastureland and farm ground. It’s the perfect place to watch the sunset on the western horizon as millions of stars fill the night sky. Listen close and you will hear songbirds, frogs, deer and many more animals calling to one another as you relax in your own prairie paradise.
The Whites have upgraded the barn to include all the necessary facilities for your stay, including a kitchenette and bathroom in the hayloft suite. Take your time waking up with a fresh cup of coffee, free WiFi, and a homemade breakfast you’ve chosen from Peggy’s menu of delicious country dishes
“We enjoy meeting new people and look forward
to showing our guests what is special about country living.”
Outside you’ll find flower beds, a trellis bench in a “secret garden,” the White’s summer vegetable garden, a wooden swing and other areas to sit and read or just enjoy the peaceful rural setting. Onsite dog boarding is offered so your pets and hunting dogs can enjoy the serene landscape, too!
The Country Barn Loft is located only a few miles from Cedar Bluff State Park and Reservoir, Trego County’s best place for water skiing, jet skiing, hiking and fishing for catfish, walleye, crappie, bass, and more. Wild game hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities are also found throughout the area.
Take a 15-minute drive into WaKeeney to enjoy the many restaurants and shops in our historic Downtown or enjoy a day in one of our beautiful parks. In the summertime, your kids will love taking a dip in WaKeeney’s Water Park.
Book your stay during one of the many county-wide festivals held throughout the year. The Trego County Fair is the highlight of the summer and, beginning with WaKeeney’s annual Christmas festival held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and continuing through the month of December, our famous holiday lights brighten up the “Christmas City of the High Plains.”
