The Muleskinner Lodge Private- Secluded - Romantic - Rustic - Charming - Versatile and only a stone's throw from Kansas City, KS and MO, St. Joseph MO, Atchison, Topeka, Manhattan and Ft. Riley, Ks. Easy to find, but not so easy to see. Table space for 25-30 inside, and much more outside.
This is it, your perfect North-East Kansas hide-a-way cabin!

Have you ever...

Washed your hands in a hollow log?
Walked on a floor made with stones pulled out of a creek?
Experienced a shower under a stone waterfall?


Do you want to...

Walk into a shower that looks like a deep forest pool?
Sit and relax in a hot tub surrounded with fern and vines?
Watch Mr. Groundhog crunching on his favorite plants?
Catch the unique barking of a silver fox squirrel?
Feed the deer, squirrels and birds?
Stroll up walking trails through the woods?
Pitch a tent and sit around a campfire?
Enjoy the sounds of nature as you gaze up at a starry sky?

You can do all that, and more.

Our Hollowed out Log wash basin
The hollow log wash basin was a "given" from the very beginning and my God-given love for the woods easily inspired me for the rest. I've tried to exhibit HIS works as well as I could.

In today's society the world is getting faster, the cities larger, your free time shorter. It used to be easy for you to get away each weekend and find that perfect waterfall in the forest, or go look for wildlife or a starry sky. That world still exists at the MuleSkinner Lodge, a most interesting Bed and Breakfast.

Located on 20 acres of Kansas Certified Wildlife Habitat near Denison, Kansas, the MuleSkinner Lodge can offer you these things. It is unusually unique with a rustic outdoor theme inside and out. We have worked for over five years creating it and the lodge is now available for your comfort, pleasure, relaxation and amazement. It is a somewhat sacred retreat.

The lodge, classified for agritourism, can be used for almost any event you can imagine, from simple weekend get-a-ways and celebrating anniversaries to providing a beautiful rustic setting for weddings, receptions and other special events. Please contact us and we will do our very best to meet your needs. Helping you to enjoy life itself by sharing this little piece of heaven is our intent. We would love to share the lodge and its land with you. Here are a few of the many uses for which the MuleSkinner inn can be utilized:

"Spur of the Moment" Personalized Gift Certificates are great gifts for any occasion. Call us and it can be sent the same day to you or directly to the recipient. You'll simply pay later by mailed check.
