Despite how you feel about the shabby chic style, The Prairie is quite a cool-looking B&B with four distinct properties for guests to stay in. These range from a little house with a downstairs/upstairs, two bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room, living room and two porches to a king studio cottage with a private terrace that overlooks a rose garden.
The Rangers Lounge is the communal area of The Prairie where folks check-in, eat breakfast, hang out and presumably, take careful notes of the shabby chic design.
Other amenities and shabby chic touches rounding out the place include flowers in jam jars, Molton Brown toiletries in the bath (they are Rachel's fave toiletries) and modern fixtures like flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges and iPod docks in the guestrooms.
Rates for the property start around $245 a night which is refreshingly affordable as anyone who's ever been into a Shabby Chic will testify. But if you're looking to make a weekend trip to The Prairie, you should book way in advance. Right now, only next weekend is open and it won't be until May 11 that a weekend opens up again.
