About

Anderson Bed & Breakfast is located in a newly renovated 1910 Arts & Crafts-style limestone house two blocks south of Kansas State University and 3 blocks east of Aggieville - an easy walk to campus, the Beach Art Museum and dozens of restaurants. No sales tax (8.75%) is collected - only a 6% city guest tax. The B&B opened in 2013 and is now the #1 rated lodging in Manhattan, Kansas. It is not your grandma's B&B! It has 3 modern guest rooms with en suite bathrooms, vaulted ceilings, walk-in closets, free high-speed wi-fi and HD flat screen TVs. It also features large porches and free private off-street parking. Sit on the front porch overlooking the tree-lined, brick street in an old university neighborhood and enjoy watching students walk to class or Aggieville. Six chickens in the backyard provide fresh eggs for gourmet breakfasts. Bed linens dry on an outdoor clothesline for that special crisp and fresh feeling between the sheets :) Your hosts, Dawn and Phil Anderson, love running a B&B and creating a warm, welcoming and comfortable environment for their guests.
