In 2016, Holly and Brian Kuhn, owners of Old Glory Antiques in Denver, built a new store located in the heart of Round Top. The Kuhns are not new to the Round Top area: they used their artsy talents to restore several older properties in Burton, including the old Burton Dance Hall. They grew to love The Prairie after being frequent guests at the B&B during their buying trips to the Round Top Antique Show. Like many guests, their love for The Prairie grew stronger with each stay, leading them to make the property their own in late 2017. Holly has added her own signature style to The Prairie while keeping design elements added by previous owners to honor their love of the property, all with the help of dedicated property manager Danny Riebeling. Danny was one of the original contractors hired by Lenore to help renovate the property. Danny’s love for this property is evident in every nail and board placed by his own hand, including many of the flowering plants. He is fun-loving, enjoys hosting guests, and cooks a tasty breakfast.
Few properties have attracted the level of artistic talent The Prairie has seen over the last 100 years. It has served as an inspirational artistic canvas for all who have served as owners or stewards, including the staff. As a testament to all who have made this property special, countless notable home decor or travel publications visited The Prairie to photograph the B&B for a feature story. The shortlist includes The New York Times, Southern Living, Garden and Gun, Travel & Leisure, Country Living, Town and Country, Texas Highway Magazine, Fodders, Martha Stewart Living and enRoute Canada.
Hedwig and Otto Mayer would be proud their legacy thrives through these wonderful, creative visionary artists and designers who love this old homestead as much as the Mayers did. Countless weddings, reunions, getaways, creative workshops, and parties have graced The Prairie with fun, laughter, and memory-making. We would love to welcome you to our family! Come stay with us and let us spoil you for the weekend or a special event.
