YES! We’re open! However…..

Yes!  Lindsborg Vacation and Executive Rentals are still open!  

However……starting Tuesday, April 7th through Sunday, May 3rdour properties will not be available for guests, out of an abundance of caution.  

Several guests were looking forward to stay at our vacation rentals in March and April.  As the COVID-19 pandemic grew, so did their concerns.  When asked, we cancelled their reservations and returned 100% of their deposits.  It was simply the right thing to do.

Given the current stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions, everyone from out-of-state would have to self-quarantine for 14 days in one of our properties.  While we would love to help, we simply aren’t set up right now to host those who may be unknowingly carrying the virus.

We are taking this time to enhance our two-hour-long cleaning procedures, to improve our outreach to Lindsborg’s small businesses and to refresh our marketing.

As we make these important changes, we fully understand that you have much higher priorities: putting food on the table, paying the rent or mortgage, finding ways to keep up on the bills and putting aside some money for emergencies.

Lindsborg Vacation and Executive Rentals know that travel is a luxury, not a necessity.  When you feel comfortable and confident to venture out, please remember us.

We believe that travelers worldwide will rediscover road trips – Lindsborg has been, and will always be, a welcoming destination.

If you would like to stay with us after concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic subside, please contact us at 855-872-3487 or lindsborgvacationrentals@gmail.com.

Stay safe and stay healthy,

Kanopolis State Park

The first state park in Kansas, Kanopolis State Park is situated in the rolling hills, bluffs and woods of the scenic Smoky Hills region of the state. From the towering Dakota sandstone bluffs to the caves and crevices of Horsethief Canyon, the park offers rugged beauty and stunning vistas.

Coronado Heights

Coronado Heights is the southern-most bluff in a series of seven, known as the Smoky Hills. Native Dakota sandstone was used to build the castle and picnic areas, creating the perfect opportunity for a picnic, flying kites, hiking or riding the off-road bike trails. Don’t forget your camera, it’s a favorite of photographers and artists alike.

Välkommen Trail

This 4.5 mile all-weather bicycle and pedestrian trail was converted from abandoned rail beds. The trail meanders through Lindsborg and is free for public use year round. At the trail’s southern end, enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while walking across the refurbished railroad bridge.

Pledge to Travel Green

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

Swedish Stone House (Stenhuset) – the newest (and oldest) short-term vacation rental in Kansas! But wait there’s more! “Lindsborg” will be seen across the pond!

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!
