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

What am amazing location. I feel like I am in the middle of a Jane Austen novel. The scenery takes me back to my childhood where I could hear the wind arriving by the sound of the leaves on the trees. The property is beautiful. Mary, the owner is the sweetest person and attentive to detail. My older two children left wanting to book their weddings today. 😂. They are 12 & 9 but I know how they more
