October Wedding Review
Keene Road Country Estate was amazing! We booked with them over a year out from our wedding and the value of what we received and had access to was unbelievable. I cannot recommend this property enough, such beautiful land and the buildings on the property are out of this world. The communication with Shelley was amazing. Any question I had, no matter how silly, she was very prompt to respond. She also was hands on and helped us problem solve while planning this wedding during a pandemic. I cannot wait to go back for a weekend stay!Sent on 12/03/2020
Keene Road Country Estate's reply:Thank you so much, Maddie! We look forward to seeing you at our Vacation Rental in the future! Please pass our name on to others looking for a Country Venue!

Keene Road Country Estates with Rustic Barns
This venue was perfect for all of our wedding needs, especially during COVID. We had a beautiful rustic wedding outside and then a barn reception all on the grounds of the estate. We rented the main house and annex for the whole weekend. The rehearsal dinner was in the main house and many of our out-of-town guests could stay right at the venue. Shelley was always easy to communicate with, prompt with replies to questions and always on top of everything to make sure we had a great experience. I highly recommend this venue. It will not disappoint!Sent on 11/26/2020

If you are looking for a beautiful venue, with lodging options, Keene Road Country Estates is the place you want! The venue looks over the beautiful Flint Hills, and there are numerous options for the ceremony to take place. The Granary Barn is a great place for pictures and is where we had our rehearsal dinner. The big barn was perfect for our reception. Our guests were able to easily flow in and out of the barn for dancing and food and drinks! The Farmhouse and Annex provided numerous sleeping options for our wedding party the night before the wedding and the night of the wedding. Shelley and her crew were amazing! She answered all my questions, they set everything up and took everything down, which was wonderful! I really felt like I could just enjoy my wedding weekend and know that everything was going to go as planned! My wedding guest list was on the bigger size, and Shelley made sure that everything was still properly spaced for COVID social distancing suggestions. Our wedding weekend at Keene Road is everything we wanted it to be and more! We can't wait to go back and spend more time there!Sent on 12/05/2020
