Historic Philip Houston House Bed & Breakfast

Bed and Breakfast in Kansas

A Charming Place to Stay in Rexford, Kansas

This Queen Anne Victorian house was built by an early Thomas County pioneer in 1906 and was listed on the Kansas Register of Historic Places in 2005. It has now been restored to offer guests a peaceful respite from the rush and pressures of our time, and Pastors and wives desiring a personal midweek retreat. The home is beautifully furnished with antiques, crystal chandeliers, lace curtains and Victorian art.

Enjoy the evening on the wrap-around porch while viewing the amazing sunsets or stroll Rexford’s quiet streets and experience starry skies. You might choose to enrich your spirit in the comfortable library.

Rest in one of our three bedrooms–each decorated in period style–with queen size beds. Fluffy bathrobes are provided for your short walk to the bathroom. Upon rising, savor a delicious full gourmet breakfast served in the dining room.

Internet access is available in the Common Room. Tours of the Shepherd’s Staff Christian Conference & Retreat Center are available. Please, no smoking, alcohol or pets. Double occupancy refers to husband and wife. Children over twelve are welcome. Reservations only–call 888.687.2565.
