AH..... you'll be At Home at the Attwood House. Located in the small town of Randolph just 20 miles north of Manhattan, KS and 24 miles from Kansas State University. Your choice of three luxurious rooms await, each with its own ensuite, flat screen TV, and WIFI. Sitting next to the city park, this newly renovated 1910 home is not your typical B&B. Owner/innkeeper, Lillie Sharp, has worked and travelled abroad extensively. From the giant Tibetan drum in the entry way to the bronze Centurion statue standing guard in the European Suite, treasures found during her adventures are part of the décor. Enjoy your full breakfast with a garden view from your choice of the dining room or the screened in porch. Hang out in the living room with its baby grand piano, sing karaoke, or watch TV and play games in the upstairs sitting room. Enjoy a game of disc golf in the city park across the street, croquet on the lawn, or take a spin on the B&B’s tandem bicycle. The Attwood House has lots of nooks and crannies to relax with a good book. Whether you’re driving cross country, enjoying a hunting or a fishing adventure, exploring the nearby off road vehicle park, cheering on the K-State Wildcats, or just relaxing with a quiet getaway, The Attwood House offers comfortable and unique accommodations.

Relaxing, Quiet & Comfortable

5 on July 11, 2017

My husband and I just spent a weekend at this B & B. We were excited to have found it because we wanted a quiet get away from the busyness of Denver. Our expectations were exceeded with this B & B, We were most impressed with the new wood buring fireplace on the patio. We received an excellent instructional lesson on how to make a genuine pizza from Naples, Italy (where the owner had spent 4 years.) And the pizza was delicious! We also enjoyed the serenity of the B & B and the many articles from the owner's travels and living situations from around the world. It was a treat and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will go back as soon as we possibly can. Lilie was a great hostess. We give this experiece and the in a 5!

We stayed at the Attwood House for our 12th anniversary. We had a great time. Lillie was so nice and she is fascinating! What an interesting life she has led. Our room was very clean, beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. We would highly recommend the Atwood House.

The Atwood B&B was very nice. Lily was so kindand welcoming! The breakfast was really good too! The folder with ideas of where to eat and explore that was in the room was very helpful. We will be going back!

A Wonderful Experience

I spent one night at the Attwood House. It is owned by Lillie Sharp who has extensively travelled all over the world. These travels are reflected throughout the house in the furniture, pictures, rooms, and artifacts. The home is very comfortable and the hostess is extremely friendly and accommodating.

About the innkeepers

In recent years people asked me when I would retire from teaching. My answer was always, "What would I do?" Not being one to just sit in my rocking chair I knew I needed something to keep me busy. When visiting family two years ago I found this house for sale. I fell in love with the 1910 craftsman and the idea of a B&B was born. So after 40 years of teaching overseas, I turned in my lesson plans for the last time, renovated the house, and am now ready to welcome new friends to my home.
