Settled by German immigrants in 1870, Ellinwood, KS lies on the Santa Fe Trail. Ellinwood is located between Quivira Wildlife Refuge and Cheyenne Bottoms making it an easy drive for nature enthusiasts, bird watchers, and hunters.

When you arrive in this perfect little town, a tour of Ellinwood's Underground Tunnels is a must. Built under the town's buildings, sidewalks, and streets, the tunnels were home to a barbershop, a brewery, soiled doves, cowboys & gamblers.

Call ahead and spend a relaxing night at our beautiful award-winning Historic Wolf Hotel and Events Center
