“Beautiful, comfortable and quiet”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Pryor House is a lovely bed and breakfast. This was our second stay at this beautiful old house. It was a great location as we were touring some of the Loess Hills area and spending a day in Omaha (35 minutes by interstate). The room was comfortable and quiet, breakfast was yummy and Pat is a wonderful hostess. I would highly recommend it!

As we are close to our 1st anniversary I am thinking about our wonderful honeymoon stay at Pryor House. It was beautiful, historic and friendly. We enjoyed every minute including our adventure on the local trail. i hope we will return one day. Maybe for our 2nd anniversary. Thanks Pat and Tom.

“Beautiful, Comfortable and Quiet place to relax”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My mother actually used to live in the old "Teacheridge" when she was a young teacher new to town. My father knocked on her door one day for coffee, and the rest is history. Growing up in Shelby, I saw that the building had become rundown and shabby. What the owners have done to restore this gorgeous home is truly remarkable. We stayed in Nancy's Nook, and it was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and cool, the wifi and cable were great, and though there was a handheld shower on the antique bath which I adored, when Pat took one look at my very tall 6'7" husband, she showed him the standup shower down the hall. :) Pat and Tom were very flexible with check-in and checkout times so we didn't have any stress, and it was lovely having them sit down with us after a filling breakfast to have some laughs. We'd love to come visit again. We felt right at home but also pampered to be able to relax is a great big comfy bed and in a beautifully decorated and clean home.

“MidWest Hospitality at it's Best”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We just spent two days with Pat and Tom. I was greeting with a hug and immediately felt welcome. We stayed in "Nancy's Nook" which was very clean and comfortable. The Honeywell's have created a very relaxing atmosphere and serve a hot, delicious, and plentiful breakfast. The Pryor House is a beautifully restored home with an interesting history (ask for a tour) and we recommend it to fellow travelers.

“We'll definitely be back.”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We just stayed at Pryor House last weekend and absolutely loved it. The Honeywells were lovely innkeepers and the accommodations were top notch. Add to that wonderful breakfasts and you have the perfect experience. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area visiting family members. Mike and Joni Sorensen, Westminster, CO
