Enjoy the charm of the early 1900s while staying in the Historic Young Guest House at 324 N. Union Street in Council Grove. The spacious four bedroom home is adorned with antique furnishings. You and your guests will be able to relax and step back in time during your stay in this historic home where President Harry Truman also stayed while visiting Council Grove’s Mayor Bill Young and his wife Josie. You can also enjoy the comfort of central heat and air, plus the convenience of wireless internet, cable TV, and a fully equipped kitchen. Floral murals that were painted on bedroom walls around 1930 have been lovingly restored, and the bedrooms are referred to by their garden flowers: Hollyhock Room, Rose Room, and Wisteria Room. The Young Guest House is adjacent to Council Grove Life Center exercise facility (guest fee applies) and to Fairgrounds Park that includes the baseball and softball fields and a brand new aquatic center pool. Within a few blocks are several great eating establishments, including the famous Hays House Restaurant on Main Street. Plan on sitting on the sun porch for a visit or a game of checkers or chess, or go a short distance to enjoy a leisurely walk on the Riverwalk.
The Young Guest House is found along the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway. This unique byway offers incredible views of the native grasses and flowers of the tallgrass prairie - one of the last remaining such landscapes left in the world. Much of the land along the Byway looks as it did thousands of years ago when the Kaw, Osage and other native tribes lived here. You will also find towns filled with charming shops, restaurants, artwork, and antiques. Take a look at the other sights you can see along the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway here.
This spot is located in the Flint Hills Designated Scenic Region. Soaring and diving from hilltop to valley along one of the quiet country highways through the Flint Hills will quickly challenge your notions of prairie. Flat? Not here. Empty? Not if you look closely. The continent's largest remaining tract of tallgrass is also one of America's unique places, harboring a wealth of adventure, beauty, and history. The region's sweeping horizons and carpets of wildflowers captivate artists and enchant visitors. Learn more here.
