About Cindy Manz

Roger & Cindy Manz moved off the farm to Lake Wabaunsee. Roger always wanted to build a barn here, a testament to his farm heritage. Lake View Barn brings a down home flavor to your lake vacation. The rural setting of this Kansas lake will set your mind free. Beautiful in all seasons, bring your camera and have a memorable stay!

Why Cindy Manz chose Kansas

A kayak becomes a tiny secluded island. Hundreds of song birds supply musical accompaniment. And all at once, it feels like someone just pressed the world's pause button...

Plan your vacation for Lake Wabaunsee's Lake View Barn.

What makes this barn unique

The Flint Hills of Kansas is a unique setting for our spring fed lake. Come enjoy nature's best!

Awesome Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property while attending a bicycling event in nearby Emopria. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by our hosts and given a tour of the property. We loved every aspect of the property which is well maintained and meticulously landscaped. The views of the lake are amazing and the waterfront dock and pier are perfect for relaxing on the water and swimming.

The large, covered lakeside porch included a bbq grill and a large table and comfy chairs for outdoor dining.

The interior is clean, tastefully decorated and notably spacious. The beds were comfortable and adorned with clean, crisp linens. The large attached garage was perfect for the storage of our bikes and gear and contained a second refrigerator/freezer. Also located in the garage is a golf cart which is perfect for touring around the lake.

We loved our stay at this beautiful property and hope to return again next year!

Plenty of room for everyone and lots of things to do.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion with family from CA, TN and Kansas. This property provided ample room for all and there was plenty to do. Weather was nice while we were there so most of the fun was swimming and boating. Fortunately one family member lives close enough to bring their boat for extra enjoyment. There is a dock right at the house-so convenient.

The house was clean and well stocked with the necessities and the owner lives nearby so if there is any problem with anything they are on hand to help.

Great Family Get Together

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great for our family with two adult children, their spouses, and three grandchildren. The cabin had "rainy day" activities in the garage that we still played even though the weather was beautiful outside. Access to the water was great and we used the kayaks, brought tubes and a paddle board. Everybody had a great time. We all enjoyed driving the golf cart around the lake. Everybody loved the loft overlooking the lake, especially the hammock! Thanks for the memories!

Wonderful Weekend with Friends & Family

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend celebrating 40+ years of friendship. My 3 best friends from high school, our moms, & kids had a great time enjoying lake life. The house is very comfortable & well stocked. The bunk room was fun for the kids & several games of hide & seek. The older kids enjoyed the kayaks. The golf cart was a favorite for all ages. Our last night was spent by the fire pit roasting hot dogs & s'mores. When we returned home, my 3 year old told me she wanted to go back to the lake. I agreed...we all look forward to returning.
