Keene Road Country Estate is a vacation rental located near Maple Hill, Kansas that will create lasting memories for you and your guests. We also feature two rustic barns that are designed for Wedding Venue spaces for small to large receptions up to 200+ guests inside, and with tables and chairs to seat up to 300 outside for an outdoor Ceremony at several locations on the property, as well as providing guests with additional seating on the patios attached to the largest Barn Venue. The historic home is nestled at the foothills of Kansas Flint Hills, featuring beautiful farming and wooded areas that make for a relaxing retreat and breathtaking views and photo opportunities.

The main floor of the Country Estate can be used for smaller events of up to 50 guests, with three dining rooms, while the Sunset Deck and Wrap around Porch enhance the enjoyment of the outdoors surrounding it. The two Rustic Barns are utilized for dinner parties and larger receptions.

The Big Barn can seat up to 225 people inside, with additional seating space on the patios. There is adequate space for Vendors and dancing either inside the Barn, or on the Patios. We limit the Outdoor Ceremony count to 300.

There are also open outdoor areas for parking and ceremonies with up to 300 guests. Many assorted rustic amenities, including the old corral fence, the bed swing, the Hillbilly Photo Booth, and benches and swings provide the backdrop for some of your other Wedding Day moments and photographs.

My wife and I had originally scheduled to have our wedding at another venue but we eventually realized that it was not going to fit our needs due to the lack of options and flexibility. Thankfully, we found this absolutely amazing country paradise out in Maple Hill! I'm not even sure where to begin on expressing how happy my wife and I were with this venue. Most places that host weddings have a few different options but Keene Road Country Estate literally has endless possibilities for whatever kind of country wedding you want. To top it off, it has plenty of room to move an outdoor wedding inside should the weather not want to cooperate. The location is 20 minutes west of Topeka and is very easy to find. In fact, we had guests from out of town and everyone found this location very easily.
Lastly, Andrea Andrews is simply amazing! She has a very calming presence which allowed my wife and I to relax during the planning stages and truly enjoy the experience. Andrea was very helpful by giving us a variety of different ideas without ever being pushy. Even on the day of the wedding, she was always available and willing to assist us with whatever we needed. I could go on and on about our experiences with this venue but I'll end with this, I am convinced that we could not have picked a better location and I am very thankful to everyone at Keene Road Country Estate that helped to make our day truly special!

Shelley was amazing to work with and would answer my questions in a timely manner. She would take the time to meet with us if needed. The venue was magical and Shelley made sure very thing was perfect. It was raining when we got there and she had umbrellas for my bridal party. I would highly recommend them! We will be coming back and using the house for family events!

The best decision I made about our wedding

Keene Road went above and beyond for my wedding. From helping with decor to holding my train when I was walking to the ceremony area. The venue is fairy tale feeling and made my day perfect. I will be forever grateful!
