“Perfect Place for a quiet, relaxing getaway.”
Reviewed 28 July 2010

Can't recommend this place enough. Very relaxing and quiet. We stayed in the Spanish Hacienda room. Very quiet room and had everything. The staff was great, the food was awesome and we can't wait to go back!

My girlfriend and I just spent a night in the new hacienda suite. It was very enjoyable and we would definitely recommend this B & B to our friends. The suite is beautifully decorated with such extras as a heated towel rack, heated mirror, heated bathroom floor and yes, a heated toilet seat. Wow!

I selected Prairieside for a two night trip with my 12 year old daughter. She was going to a 2 1/2 day intensive athletic camp and I felt that a B&B would be more restful than a hotel. Overall, Praireside met my expectations and the descriptions on their web site were accurate. The owners are very nice and accommodated more than one of our schedule changes. When we arrived, I was a bit surprised to see that Praireside is in a residential neighborhood. However, the owners have done an excellent job of providing off street parking and other guest amenities without being disruptive to the neighborhood. One thing I really liked about our room, the English Cottage, was that it had an outside door as well as a door to the inside main part of the house. This made it easy to come and go as we pleased, as well as pop into the kitchen for cookies! The heated toilet seat was my daughter's favorite. Their massage therapist Donna is wonderful. Our room was filled with many thoughtful incidentals that most B&Bs and hotels never think to provide. The office area in our room was well-stocked and nice.

The one disappointment was that breakfast is only served at 9:30am, which is rather late for people with places to go. A decent breakfast was left for us in the room refrigerator, but it was not nearly as nice as the hot breakfast they served the other guests. However, if people primarily stay here for rest and relaxation, then a 9:30am breakfast probably suits most of their guests.

We made reservations for our honeymoon five months in advance. Since we were going to be arriving late on our wedding night, we paid in full in advance so as not to have to deal with checking in and paying the balance that night. The cost of our stay: over a $1,000! As our wedding day approached, one of us lost our job, and the other being a full time student, we decided it wasn't a good idea to spend so much on a honeymoon in our unstable condition and go later after we had a more stable income. We called to cancel our reservation two weeks in advance. Per the cancellation policy on Cheri's website, you reserve your reservation with a down payment of the first night (your deposit). When canceling at least a 10 days in advance your deposit is kept toward your next stay minus a $20 fee for processing. We should have received up to $800.00 back for canceling, instead we were met with a rude explanation that our full payment of over $1000 was considered our "deposit" and would not be receiving any of it back! Her cancellation policy now states, "Your payments, minus a $20 processing fee, are credited toward your next stay if cancellation is received 10 days prior to your arrival..." I'm pleased to see that she has changed her wording to more accurately reflect her policy. Beware of her wording so you don't get screwed over! This situation is to be resolved in court.

I cannot possibly say enough nice things about Prairieside. Even before we arrived for our stay, Cheri called us to find out what we liked to eat for breakfast! We were welcomed by Paul when we arrived and were given a nice tour of the home. Everything is immaculately clean and welcoming. We ordered our breakfast delivered hot to our room and it was amazing!! We even got fresh salsa to put on our omelets. We are already planning our next trip and can't wait to stay again. Thank you so much Cheri and Paul for making our anniversary so special!!
