This 1884 home is a delight; great location within walking distance of all the downtown and west end locations you'll want to see and enjoy. We believe you'll love your entire experience at this historic home and its great staff.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I selected 1812 for a couple's weekend getaway in KC. Upon arriving, Luke did a quick tour of the home (even though we didn't arrive until 8pm). The first night we used the outdoor hot tub, which is in a small building behind the home. The ratio of guests to available hot tubs... More

We met friends for a weekend KC visit and stayed here. Hesitate to call it charming, but it is certainly interesting! Lots to look at, including the manager Luke's lovely paintings. Location was good for us as we went to the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, nearby restaurants and music venues, and the Plaza lights. Our friends Victorian Room on the 2nd... More

Very nice old (1880s) house with an eclectic mix of decorations - exactly what I expect from an old B&B. 6 rooms - 1 on the 1st floor, 3 on the 2nd floor, 2 on the 3rd floor. The rooms on the 3rd floor might get a little warm on hot summer nights. Very convenient location to downtown activities. The... More

My wife and I had tickets to a concert in/near the arts district in Kansas City and decided to drive down from Des Moines and spend a couple of days. We looked at a number of different options and decided on the 1812 Overture B&B because the price was right and the location was perfect. Their billing system is a... More

Stayed in Kansas City for the night, and found the 1812 Overture. Very easy to get to off the highway, but no highway noise. Luke met us a the door, and gave us a brief history,and tour of the place. We stayed in the Victorian room, which is very roomy, bright, and a great view. Breakfast is cook to order,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at the 1812 Overture. We stayed in the Victorian Room, the main bedroom on the second floor which looks out on the front yard. Breakfasts were tasty and cooked to order. Luke and Pedro both were hospitable and helpful in every way. We will love to come back!

A jewel in KC. Really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Luke and staff were friendly and the rooms adequate for our needs.We did not manage to use the hot tub, but will next time! House is comfortable and the breakfast (cooked to order) is something to look forward to. Conveniently placed for most access to restaurants, nightlife, museums.
