Kansas: the state where vast plains meet endless skies. You can elevate your stay with a unique lodging experience that will have you sleeping among the Kansas stars.

Surrounded by nature's beauty, expect to wake up to the soft glow of the sun filtering through the leaves, and drift off to sleep serenaded by the soothing whispers of the wind.

Come along as we explore four Kansas agritourism locations that offer a stay among the trees, each providing a unique twist on your stay in the Sunflower State.

Diamond Springs Ranch: Just a 15-minute drive north of Wichita and conveniently located 2 miles from Interstate 135, Diamond Springs Ranch sprawls over 40 acres for those looking to get away under the stars. This 600-square-foot treehouse stands proudly on its own, offering an authentic escape from the hustle and bustle.

With room for up to four guests, it provides all the cozy amenities one could desire for a true getaway experience. During a stay, guests have the option to immerse themselves in the full cowboy experience, including a peaceful horseback ride across open pastures, a delightful steak dinner date and an evening of relaxation around a crackling campfire.
