Welcome to the "Traveling to Central Kansas" blog!

When Lindsborg Vacation Rentals discovered this “Pledge to Travel Green,” much of it made sense four our guests visiting central Kansas.

For first-time guests, visit “Calendar of Events” on our website to learn more about what festivals and activities are open to everyone.

Good habits are key – we love our guests who treat our properties with respect – certainly disposing of trash properly (including recyclables) – even washing a load of towels at the onsite laundry.

Much of downtown Lindsborg is simply steps away. Support our local businesses by shopping and dining in Lindsborg.

Instead of driving, consider renting a quadricycle from Hemslojd (as long as the weather cooperates) to visit parts of town a little further afield such as the Old Mill or the Sandzen Art Gallery! It’s fun and good exercise! #visitlindsborg #bookdirect

Central Kansas has so much to offer, including the newly renovated Eisenhower Center in nearby Abilene. Here is a recent segment from CBS News. Enjoy!

After eighteen months of difficult, but productive reconstruction and design, Stenhuset is now available!

Sorry, but it’s was booked for Hyllningsfest almost two years ago!

For the curious, please visit Lindsborg Vacation Rentals for pictures and more information. And thanks again, for the hundreds of townsfolk and friends who toured Stenhuset on Sunday, October 6th. Sorry, but we only had one “sneak peek” so there are no private showings.

The Vacation Rental Show with Matt Landau, Season 2 will be shown on OSN Living. Every one of the ten episodes, including the one about Lindsborg, will be shown at least three times in OSN’s broadcast area: Middle East and northern Africa!

A national blind spot toward rural and working-class America is driving misleading headlines, broken politics and dangerous fissures in our social fabric. 

The Homecomers with Sarah Smarsh offers a more accurate story of those ill-understood spaces. A native of rural Kansas, journalist and bestselling author Sarah Smarsh brings you intimate conversations with six champions of rural America. As “homecomers”—residents and advocates who remain committed to places where society and the economy would have them “get out”—they are preserving and strengthening the vibrancy and inclusiveness of small towns, rural lands and misunderstood communities that headlines claim are dying.

Subscribe to The Homecomers—coming soon! Learn more at TheHomecomers.org and follow the show on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.

Lindsborg Vacation Rentals now features Hulu + Live TV. Over 60 channels are available. If you missed a show, simply search and watch it when it’s a good time for you!
