This 1917 Prairie style four-square home is surrounded by acres of rich, fertile farmland and nestled in the grassland region of the Flint Hills, just moments from historic Abilene, Kansas. The home was built by Deb's grandfather Henry Delker as a wedding gift to his bride Emma. They raised their family here and occupied the home until 1989. At that time Tim and Deb decided to take over the family farm and restore the home into a Bed and Breakfast. Special attention has been given to every detail of the restoration, down to the beautiful egg and dart trim and brilliant stained and beveled glass in the common area. The swing or the wraparound porch is the perfect setting for enjoying tasty hors d'oeuvres, conversation and the sights and sounds of country life.
"We were delighted to reach our copper oasis in the midst of green and gold deserts of Kansas wheat fields...our desert pool of refreshing water was a whirling spa, our travelers tent a lovely home with a window seat view of heads of wheat that spread out like grains of sand in all directions." - Guest comment
Relax as you marvel in the peacefulness of the Flint Hills. You may find solitude, a romantic getaway, or a playful visit to the Wild West of Abilene, Kansas during your stay at the Windmill Inn.
