"It's has been fantastic. The Leatherock Hotel Bed & Breakfast was the perfect place for our Skateboard Art Exhibition. We could have looked forever and not found somewhere as good. What an amazing location. We really, really appreciate your help with getting word out about the show. So many more folks showed up than we expected. I'm glad so many people got to see the art work. I feel lucky to have met your staff and spent time in their company. Very best wishes and lots of luck.”--Jason, Cherryvale Skateboard Company, London, Winter 2007

“Shows Over. Let’s go home...The Santa Fe Lounge in the Leatherock Hotel Bed & Breakfast is a good sized room that looks out onto the railroad tracks. Bright winter sunlight streams onto the wood paneled walls as we hung our show on Friday. We couldn't have pictured a more perfect location. Saturday. Opening day. We woke up and didn't have a clue how things would pan out. We'd expected to hand out a few flyers and drum up a tiny crowd but Wayne at the Leatherock Hotel Bed & Breakfast had got us a mention in the papers and on the radio and a whole bunch of people showed up. All sorts. Little kids, old folks, youths - from all over Kansas. I don't know how many we had on that first day. 50? 60? A whole lot more than we expected anyway. Even the Mayor of Cherryvale stopped by. That night, Larry fired up the barbie on the hotel's front porch and treated us to a Kansan BBQ dinner. Thanks Larry. As we returned to the hotel from breakfast in a nearby town (where a waitress recognized us from our picture on the front page of the Sunday Paper) cars were already pulling up for the show. Some local artists brought their work by for us to look at. Come Sunday, we were all talked out and tired. We'd stayed in this most incredible place and met some good people. Especially Wayne, Jim, and Larry at the Leatherock, who made sure the whole thing went really smoothly. We need to figure out what we're going to do for next year so we have an excuse to come back.”--Valerie, Cherryvale Skateboard Company, London, Winter 2007

“The history and lore of the Leatherock Hotel Bed & Breakfast is what prompted me to search out lodging for my visits to Kansas. I particularly wished to stay there in order to feel a part of the historical town of Cherryvale and the soon to be 100 year old hotel. The owner, Wayne, is making extra efforts to restore the hotel in keeping with themes pertinent to the area. The entire building is rewired and boasts new plumbing throughout while maintaining the environmental atmosphere of the era in which it was built. Wayne is an excellent source of all kinds of local history, complete with photographs, news articles, artifacts and more. Our suite, the Santa Fe, was complete with decor and items reminiscent of times past while offering comforts of today. There is the Bertha Leatherock room (name of hotel!) and Route 66 suite. Our stay could not have been more comfortable, more catered to or fun! Our breakfast consisted of fresh fruit (several kinds!), fresh coffee we made in the room, orange juice, cereal and doughnuts. Far too much for any one, not to mention, 4! people to finish feeling way too satisfied. The attention and extras far exceeded the charge for our room. We were and are totally amazed. If you love history, love to be a part of living history and like to visit areas as they truly are; not pretend to be, I recommend a visit to the Leatherock Hotel Bed & Breakfast in Cherryvale, Ks.”--Gerald S, Kansas, Fall 2007

"This is a wonderful structure, in the most unlikely location, the surroundings are charming."--Chuck S, Kentucky, Fall 2007

"I shall write for us 3 okies. Thank you for your hospitality web site, interesting community culture. It was a very quiet and homey atmosphere. You are certainly a community booster for this town and we are glad to have this experience."--Nadine P, Oklahoma, Fall 2007

"I had a wonderful time, it was peaceful and relaxing. The bed was outrageously comfortable and the room was very clean. I enjoyed my stay here and look forward to letting my guys stay here too.."--Autumn A, Army National Guard, Summer 2007

“Great Place for the Family…I visited this historical hotel with my family for five days during the summer. We occupied the Route 66 suite with its separate entrance from the main hotel, perfect for kids. The owner was very courteous and gave great advice on what to do in Cherryvale. We went fishing and spent many hours at Big Hill Lake which was very clean and well groomed. There is a restored Santa Fe train station down the street with an operating model railroad layout. We love visiting small towns and Cherryvale offered lots of history everywhere we went.” --Curtis H, Illinois, Summer 2007

"I have enjoyed my stay. My needs were well satisfied. The bed was very comfortable, the room was easy to cool. God's speed on the restorations."--Sharon S, Kansas, Summer 2007

"My stay was better than expected! Definitely will return. Keep up the good work & this place will be Great! Excellent place, we loved it!"--Rick & Melissa A, Kansas, Summer 2007

"This is a wonderful building and it has so much potential! I think that having a theme for each room makes it that much more special for your guests. We were very comfortable and it was nice and quiet."--Red & Katie G, Kansas, Spring 2007

"I stayed at the Leatherock Hotel Bed & Breakfast in Cherryvale, KS two times in the fall of 2006. Both visits were fabulous! The owner is very knowledgeable about Cherryvale history and current events. The Leatherock Hotel Bed & Breakfast is also a museum of Rail Road history of the area and is located across from several tracks which are used regularly by several railroad holdings. Our room was warm, cheerful, fully outfitted with kitchen facility and private bath, large bed and couch for relaxing while viewing videos or DVD's on the TV supplied w/the room. Our stay could not have been more comfortable, more catered to or fun!"--Gerald S, California, Fall 2006
