Very Nice Lady

She and her friend stopped at our place this past fall. Very nice and friendly would not hesitate to have her return or to stay with her if we were in the area.

Great people!

Very nice place with a beautiful view. Watched the sunset from the gazebo and just enjoyed the nice and quiet of the neighborhood. Didn’t actually get to meet my host, however, I did get to meet one of her close friends who came and made sure I got set up without any problems. Incredible people all around. I would definitely recommend this location if you are traveling through the middle of Kansas. Very easy to get to with a store and a place to eat breakfast close by. Thank you! to my wonderful host for making this possible!

Wonderful host and hostess.

Wonderful host and hostess. Made us feel right at home. It was a very hot day so we were able to use their 110 outlet. Invited us in for some refreshments and we played some old-time and Celtic music for them. And we talked about our various camping adventures. Really nice people.

Fabulous hosts

Host were very gracious. They invited us in to play cards with her neighbors and we had a great time. Thoroughly enjoyed a soak in the hot tub to ease all are tired muscles From traveling. Saw an amazing sunset from the gazebo. Life doesn’t get any better. Would highly recommend stopping here if you’re in the neighborhood.

Wonderful visit overlooking the water

We met our hosts when they had guests enjoying the sunny afternoon on the deck. Graciously they invited us to join them for drinks, laughs and lots of fun conversation. We plan to stay in touch with our new ‘friends’!

Thank You!

We were able to stay at travelingnana's one night while coming through Kansas to visit friends in nearby Ottawa. Though we didn't get to meet her, her friend helped us get set up and we appreciate her kindness so much!

Nice place to stay!

Lynn is the sweetest person you would ever want to meet! She had made dinner for us on the night we arrived. She has a beautiful view over a pond with cows nearby and a gazebo for morning coffee. Overbrook has a beautiful small lake with a paved walking path around it. You could walk from her house to use it. We didn't have enough time as we were travelling through, but it would be fabulous for walking dogs. If you are ever in the area, I would recommend staying with Lynn. Thanks again Lynn for a great time! Sally and Dave

Don't overlook Overbrook

We spent the most wonderful night with Travelingnana. She was more than hospitable. Great paved parking pad, 20 amp electric available, lovely town, easy to find host site, just could not be better. There is a sign coming into town that says "don't overlook Overbrook". If mid America is on your route, "don't overlook Overbrook!" We have made a new friend.
