Bethesda Place, an organization benefiting individuals with developmental disabilities, brings you this country home. Just outside of the city limits of Hays, you can see all of the stars on our 36-acre land. During the Spring and Summer, the land flourishes with flowers and our produce growing in our many gardens, and in the winter enjoy a wood burning stove. Inside our cozy little retreat, you will find yourself feeling like you never left home with our comfortable and welcoming amenities.
This 3 bedroom, one bath old farm home is located at the entrance of our tree nursery, providing you easy access from I-70 and privacy, as well as a unique opportunity to see the men who own and operate this agricultural non-profit at work in their element if you so desire.
Guests will receive access via a 4 digit keyed to give you the most privacy possible.
Interaction with guests
Someone will be available if you would like to schedule a tour of the property and learn more about our organization.
Other things to note
There is a pool available seasonally but it is shared with our residents and neighbors. No life guard on duty and pool rules are listed in the welcome manual. So come join the party!
Firewood for the wood burning stove is provided seasonally but we request you only operate the stove if you feel comfortable doing so. (Please contact us beforehand if you would like a fire started for you upon your arrival).
- No drugs or inappropriate conduct
- A book of rules will be at the location for you to go over as well. Basically treat the property as if it was your own and feel good about employing the men of Bethesda and supporting individuals with developmental disabilities
Bethesda Place is a local Christian non-profit founded by Tom and Shelley Stafford in 1979, when they began taking young men with developmental disabilities to live in their country home west of Hays. Bethesda Place is currently the home of six talented men who have spent their lives living, working, playing, and praying together. The residents and staff of Bethesda Place lead a meaningful life together as they grow trees for local landscaping development, garden to nourish themselves and others, and create an inspirational living community in which “two is better than one” – and together they overcome each of their unique challenges.
