Welcome to Bentley!

We're glad you are here! 

Enjoy peaceful, country-style living in a safe, close-knit community only minutes away from the big city. Bentley’s convenient location, near the center of the triangle formed by the metropolitan areas of Wichita, Hutchinson and Newton, makes it a desirable location for business and homeowners.  Easy access is available to either of three major highways; the
four-lane expressway of K-96; Federal Highway U.S. 50; or Interstate I-135.  Residents often commute to one of those three metropolitan areas for work, while enjoying small town living and small town schools.
Welcome home!
