Description: Muleskinner Lodge was a 20X40' old barn now a most uniquely renovated cabin of logs on 20 acres that can sleep up to 9. It is located on Raccoon Ridge overlooking a ravine, creek and meadow. It is a Kansas Certified Kansas Wildlife Habitat and Tree Farm. The large wrap around composite deck is accented by artistic hedge tree railings. Accommodations for most any occasion are available including hot tub parties, weddings and anniversary receptions. Summer Weddings are enhanced by the rustic Blue wisteria arbor. Winter dictates smaller but lovely inside weddings. Newlyweds greatly enjoy the privacy and the Lodge's ambiance. The bathroom wash basin is a real hollow sycamore log; simulated channels of water run between native stones in the floor of the "deep forest" bathroom; the shower is a water fall. A solarium with hot tub and changing lounge, vines & ferns is very inviting and laundry facilities are also available. Stroll through the water garden with 2 water falls, creek and pool with fish. Three casinos are within 10 and 25 mi; fishing & boating 12 mi; hunting, 9 mi. You may cook for yourselves for your total privacy or we can cater for you also. Enjoy TV, DVD, fireplace, air purifier, and indoor/outdoor intercom for bird songs inside in real time. Trundle beds allow more space for meetings, more tables, etc. There is a large great picnic area with space for tenting or RV. No smoking, pets or credit cards; personal checks and well behaved children are welcome. Double Occupancy is $140.00 Each additional person, $40. Special rates for children, under 3 no charge. When you buy a night you get the entire private lodge except during special events or prearranged. Total charges are due 2 weeks prior to stay. Sometimes the deer and raccoon come right up to the lodge. See the pictures on our website. We have 2 churches and a bar & grill close by. If you lodge with us, you will not be disappointed. Many wish to watch the woods fill up with snow as the poet wrote. The lodge is open 365 days of the year and all 4 seasons. Let us show you our hospitality. Easy to find but not easy to leave, the lodge is for you to enjoy and is a joy for me to show and share it with you. Call early to secure your special time; hopefully, it will be available for you. Be it wedding, reunion, holiday, anniversary, birthday, kicking back or getting away from the rat race, please give me a call. I will be glad to hear from you and get acquainted. Blessings, Caroline
