The space

When Laurel and I were married in 1994, and I moved from Wahoo, Nebraska (near Omaha) to a cattle ranch in northwest Kansas, I knew I had found my Paradise, In 1880, Laurel's grandparents, Enoch and Rebecca Fox, homesteaded the first 180 acres of Goddard Ranch where they raised corn and started buying cattle. Now Goddard Ranch consists of over 3,500 acres of pasture and farmland and, in the same tradition of Enoch and Rebecca, is still a working ranch. When I first came here, I found the open prairie, rolling pasture land, wild flowers, creeks, ponds and wildlife filled my soul with serenity. I loved the ranch so much that I wanted to share the experience and told Laurel that we needed a guest house for friends and relatives when they came to visit. One Christmas I had a Christmas card on the tree from my stepson, John. Inside I found a picture of a very old, ugly house with the caption, "Your next project. Merry Christmas!" John moved that old, ugly house to our ranch and we started the renovation. 10 years, two additions and many gallons of paint later, we have a very beautiful lodge that sits on the side of a hill, with beautiful trees surrounding it and pasture land as far as the eye can see.

Inside is a very spacious family room (20x32 feet) that is off from the kitchen and dinning room. There are two bedrooms with a twin bed and bunkbed in each bedroom. We have a new couch that pulls out into a queen-sized bed with a 7-inch mattress in the family room. There are also 2 twin-sized air mattresses and one queen-sized mattress available. There are 2 bathrooms, laundry room with washer/dryer, and a cabinet with a double sink. All bath towels, linens, dish towels and laundry supplies are included. The kitchen has a stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, all pots and pans, dishes, silverware and the cabinets are stocked with the all staples. Cable TV and wireless internet are supplied.

From the front porch, you can watch the horses in the pasture and the cattle grazing over the hill. If you walk up the hill from the back yard, you will find the fishing pond or go about 5 miles down the road to Antelope Lake to fish. You can follow the creek and look for deer antlers, hunt for arrowheads, hike, ride a horse, or watch the sunrise and sunset. At night, roast hotdogs and marshmallows by the campfire under a panoramic view of the stars. You will never see as many stars in the sky than out in the open prairie.

If you are traveling with horses, we have a fenced in pasture and a barn to board them. If you are a history buff, we have the Indian effigy, Penokee Man, on our land and will take you to see where he lives after almost 1000 years. Near here was one of the last Indian/Calvery shootouts and our museum in Hill City is full of artifacts that chronicles the vast history of this area. My husband, Laurel, loves to tell stories of when his grandparents homesteaded the first 180 arces.

In the last 8 years, Seven 2 Bar has hosted people from India, Ukraine, Italy and from all over the United States. Our lodge is available for weekend getaways, vacations by the week or month, hunting in the spring and fall, family runion, class reunions, or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We offer guided turkey and pheasant hunts. Our guides are very experienced and have trained hunting dogs for your pheasant hunt.

I offer home cooked meals and make everything from scratch.

Come and visit us and see the living history of Goddard Ranch at Seven 2 Bar Adventures.

I don't even know where to start. This place is absolutely beautiful and Mary is the most amazing host not to mention her furry sidekick Nacho who is one of the sweetest dogs ever. The place is remote with a creek, horses,cattle, quarries and so much more we didn't have the time …

Mary is a great host. This was a nice, secluded stay for us. That’s what we were looking for. The beds are all twins, so we slept on the pullout queen sofa bed. Mary brought over homemade cinnamon rolls. She had the charcoal grill prepped and cleaned for us and I t worked great! …

Mary's place was a perfect "meet-in-the-middle-weekend" with our families in Denver, CO and Lawrence, KS. We enjoyed quiet time on the porch swing, laying on blankets in the front yard gazing at the stars, enjoyed seeing jack rabbits, wild turkeys, frogs at the pond and listening…

Mary's West Cabin was a perfect stop for my family and I as we moved across country. She was the perfect host and the place itself was large and comfortably slept all 6 of us (and our cats!). Thanks for having us, Mary.
