The Buffalo Haus- Rupp Loft, is the upstairs apartment in our historic limestone house located in Downtown Hays, circa 1893. This two bedroom, one bath historic apartment has been renovated with Victorian charm yet modern amenities. Walk to local shopping and dining favorites, FHSU, the pool and park. Relax with antiques, historical books, cotton linens, a Temper-pedic king bed, coffee/tea, organic farm fresh eggs, high speed wifi, Roku tv, a wrap around porch, driveway parking and much more!

The space
Skip the ordinary with our historic Rupp Loft! Named after the gentleman who saved this historic limestone house from demolition, the Rupp Loft has two bedrooms and one bathroom. King Temper-pedic mattress, and a full size pillow top mattress with medium firmness. Enjoy our 100% organic cotton sheets and Turkish cotton towels, new subway tile shower and antique wash bowl sink. Note, the ceiling in the shower may be low for guests over 6ft.

We offer complimentary high speed WIFI, ROKU tv, in apartment air conditioning and off street parking. We provide coffee, tea, creamer, and organic eggs fresh from our hobby farm and basic cooking supplies. Enjoy the antique newspapers found during renovations and local art!

We are currently working on the backyard landscaping (a privacy fence to come) but please enjoy the amazing wrap around front porch. We also have laundry facilities in the basement that guests may utilize. Please be aware that the laundry room is in a 120 year old basement. Although we have updated and renovated the home, some old home characteristics are still present.

After booking, use your personalized guest link, sent in airbnb messages, for more detailed check in and check out instructions :)

Guest access
Guests may access the back stairwell, the basement laundry, The Rupp Loft, the backyard, the side driveway, the wrap around porch and the front yard. Please note that the basement laundry, backyard, front yard, and wrap around porch may be shared with other guests. Your apartment is completely private however.

Other things to note
-Please note this apartment is located on the second floor. There is a winding set of stairs to ascend to your apartment (see photos). There may also be minimal noise from guests below.

-We ask you take your shoes off to minimize traffic noise for the guests below you. We will continue to work on the property, but will not make noise during guest’s reservations.

-Guests must clean up after themselves in the kitchen and strip bedding before checkout

-We are a very small safe college town but have motion detection cameras on your driveway parking spot only, for your piece of mind and security.

-PETS will be considered on a CASE BY CASE BASIS. There will be an added $30 a night fee, per pet, if we accept your pet request. You must inquire about your pet before booking. Thank you!
