Historic Lazy T Ranch and Guest House of Northeast Kansas

Originally homesteaded in 1855, this historic family ranch now offers an outstanding Flint Hills location for your special event. The Lazy T provides fun farm experiences for the whole family, with hundreds of acres of native tallgrass prairie to explore with incredible views over the Kansas River Valley and the Manhattan area. Activities include ranch suppers, cowboy poetry entertainment, pony rides, and hayrack rides in the native prairie. We have "country atmosphere with city accessibility," located just a few minutes from Manhattan and I-70.

The Lazy T is a destination for birthday parties complete with pony and hayrack rides or fun on our laser tag field or sports courts. Our Cowboy Café and Tallgrass Arena are available for indoor parties and events.

The ranch hosts groups by appointment throughout the year and holds a Fall Festival during weekends in October, a celebration of the National Day of the Cowboy on the last Saturday in July and other special events. From visiting a stone barn on the National Register of Historic Places to enjoying original cowboy poetry to experiencing a hayrack ride and feeding animals, guests will enjoy this historic ranch in the scenic Flint Hills.
