Place where Helium was discovered. Visit the city pocket park with historical markers. Dalton gang bank robbery site across the street from the cabin. On the site is the Lighthouse Library complete with a huge saltwater aquarium. Famous Henrys Candy Factory in Dexter. A very peaceful and relaxing setting. Local features include Grouse Creek, beautiful flint hills highways, and Kansas grassland, wheat fields, corn an maize fields, and cattle/ranch land. Fishing. Hunting. Hiking. Proceeds from Grouse Valley Lodge go to help fund ECCRC, a 501 (c) (3) that supports the Lighthouse Library project. (Very rural area. Bring groceries with you if you intend to cook in the kitchen. No grocery store. There is a grill/cafe in town.) Only 10 miles from Cowley County State Fishing Lake - via Grouse Creek Road - the scenic route. Has historic stone bridges on this route. Winfield State Lake is only 18 miles away as well. It is a huge lake - fishing, picnics, boating. There is a store on the corner before this lake. Maps inside the cabin.More

This was my third trip to the area to hunt deer, and decided to stay in Dexter instead of a motel in Winfield for the convenience. The cabin is very cute, and we adored it, but it was not big enough for three adults and...More
