My sister had her wedding reception here and it was beautiful! I highly recommend! It was a cool day out so I'm not sure what it would be like if it was a super hot day. read more

Circle S Ranch is my top recommendation for a B&B near Lawrence; very nice place away from the city to stay. We have stayed twice in the "Post Rock" room and love the fireplace. Weekdays are usually not crowded if your looking to have more privacy. The hot tub is nice if you can open the windows to get some breeze. The breakfast was good; the server was great. The grounds are very nice (classy, rustic, flowery) what you would expect at a ranch; very nice veggie gardens too. Nice walking trails... Beautiful views...Bison, Horses, and friendly cats too. We felt very at home!read more

I was there for a wedding and reception, really cool building and grounds. Great climate in late spring, and easy to get to from Lawrence.

Beautiful area with a nice little area for a wedding ceremony and reception with room for plenty of guests. The hot water was unfortunately not working in the bathrooms at the reception area.read more

Loved our family reunion here with about 30 family members plus a lunch for 50 extended family. It was difficult getting phone calls/emails returned when making arrangements but everything worked out terrific except for the beds. Missing sheets on some beds and one "bed" that was really a double sized window seat with barely a thin foam pad. Not a bed!! read more

As far as a wedding is concerned, it was not good. But the inn itself was great. We rented the whole inn for the weekend & chose the middle wedding package. Everything throughout planning ran very smooth, however the day of the wedding was a disaster. Maybe it was because we did not pay for the biggest event package & we were somehow less important, or maybe it was untrained staff, or maybe it was just an off weekend. Had issues getting a hold of the staff/event coordinator. We were promised the accommodations via polaris cart for people w/disabilities and the said "it wasn't working" while they were driving it around. I was also told there would be a welcome board for guests staying at the venue for the weekend(they did it for prior weddings),but we didn't get that. There were other brides touring the venue on my wedding day. I was actually cool with this, but there was not an employee with them. So instead of being able to ask them, they followed me around & asked questions. Again, not a big deal, purely inconvenienced. It says online there is wifi, but there was basically no wifi on the property.To save money, I had a playlist on Spotify & an emcee. I was told that there was stronger wifi in the barn, it wouldn't be a problem. We rented the speakers & mic from the ranch (which we were notified as an added charge a month before) & were told this had been something past brides had done. During the reception, we couldn't get the wifi to work, which meant no music.Theresa, , the event coordinator, had left sometime during the ceremony & the staff had no clue as to the password to connect nor would they call her. Friends/family tried to resolve the issue without help, eventually I had to get upset in front of guests because we couldn't have our first dance. It was embarrassing. The staff then said it"wasn't their problem" & that it was either Spotify or weather to blame (it had stormed that evening, however the following sunny day the wifi wouldn't connect). In retrospect, I should have hired a DJ that didn't need wifi.I was trying to save money since we paid $10k up front to them.The staff was extremely unhelpful & were rude - if they were at all visible. Bartender was not in a good mood.The staff rolled their eyes at husband when asked for them to give us our cake structure back(we had to return them to baker), said they had already thrown them away.The barn flooded on the back wall, where the bridal party/cake are set up. I didn't realize it flooded until after the cake was cut & I sat down.The flooding & dirt in the barn gave my dress an awful grey ring & ruined my dress. For the money we paid/the way were treated,it's upsetting. I felt absolutely no stress whatsoever up until the reception & then felt nothing BUT stress trying fix things myself at my own reception.read more

We were there for a "formal" wedding. The staff was courteous, welcoming and attentive; the treatment you expect from a family business. I don't think they were prepared for a party of that size, however. They had one buffet table, and my table was invited to visit last, as we smelled the food the entire time we waited (which was lengthy). They also had problems cutting the interior tier of the cake - it looked like a dump cake on my plate. Not an issue for me, but an indication of a work in progress. Once they finish renovations of their party barn and have a better handle on how to feed a crowd efficiently, this will be a much sought-after venue for weddings.read more

UNRELIABLE, UNDEPENDABLE! Booked this place well ahead of time for a couple of nights since I had a conference and presentation at University of Kansas. I was sent all the confirmations, approved the proposal on their event planner and a welcome letter too, by their DIRECTOR of events; Diane Little, only to find out, just the day before, that the room was no longer available. Knowing that I was travelling with my 8+ months pregnant wife, they still gave it away after everything was confirmed. And all they had to say was "sorry".I have traveled to many countries for conferences etc, but have never come across such unreliable, undependable staff. Wouldn't tick off the "star" if this lets me post without giving it a star.read more

Ruined my 34th anniversary weekend. I book a room 12 days ahead and was notified 2 days before I was to arrive that they had double booked the room and no other rooms were available. Good luck ensuring you have a room.read more
