A true gem in Kansas City
en junio 08, 2015
My wife and I just completed a restful stay at the Bell Cottage. Meeting us with wine and cheese upon our arrival, our hosts, Dean and Jim, were most attentive to our needs making us immediately feel at home. They are a wealth of information about things to see and do in the greater Kansas City area. The suite is quiet, peaceful, private and cozy, and we enjoyed restful sleep each night. A wonderful breakfast kicked off our days of sightseeing and exploration. Dining with Jim and Dean in the evening was a special treat enjoying Jim’s fine cooking and their delightful company. We are looking for an opportunity to return.
Fantastic B&B in KC

Stayed one night at The Bell Cottage just off the plaza in KC. Perfect location, beautiful home and wonderful hosts. Jim and Dean were very attentive and very personable, enjoyed talking with them. Wine and cheese served after we arrived, but we didn't have much time to enjoy since we had to rush out for a wedding, very nice treat! Breakfast was simple with scrambled eggs, yogurt and fruit, English muffins, etc. Will definitely stay there again for another overnight in our home city.
Outstanding Hospitality and Comfort

The hosts of The Bell Cottage were so attentive to our needs during our stay, they thought of everything--and I felt very much at home. The guest rooms were immaculate and well-appointed, and we had plenty of privacy. The cottage is located just minutes from the Plaza and other attractions. It makes for a great walk through a lovely neighborhood. I must mention: they made a wonderful breakfast for us with the best eggs I've had in a long time!
Hospitable B & B

My friend and I were getting away for a girls long weekend and we started in Kansas City where we wanted to visit the Nelson Art Museum. We chose The Bell Cottage because of it's close proximity. We stayed only one night and it was wonderful. We felt very safe and secure there in this wonderful neighborhood. Jim and Dean were the most gracious of hosts, greeting us with wine and cheese upon our arrival and visiting with us as if we had known each other for years. They were very informative about places at the Plaza for eating and entertainment and we were close enough that we could walk there. The place was spotless and Jim cooked up a great breakfast. I would definitely stay there again if in the K.C. area.

We stayed two nights at Bell Cottage while on a tourist visit to Kansas City. It was mid-March, and even in that most unlovely time of year the cottage's block and the park that it dead-ends into were enchanting. The area is ultra-quiet, too, which makes staying there especially restful. Slightly off the beaten track but close to attractions like the Plaza and the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, Bell Cottage provides an excellent base for enjoying the city's many attractions. Jim and Dean, the hosts, are everything and more one might hope for: warmly welcoming, respectful of guests' privacy but also lively conversationalists when company is wanted, knowledgeable about the area and things to do in it. Jim's breakfasts are delicious and ready when guests want them and not at some pre-set time, and the hosts surpass expectations by laying out for guests pre-dinner appetizers and drinks. Guests have the upstairs entirely to themselves, a suite consisting of an attractive bedroom with an excellent double bed and plenty of closet space, a bathroom, and a sitting room that contains a television and comfortable chairs for watching it or for reading, as well as a desk. This suite, and the house as a whole, are very attractively arranged and decorated. Bell Cottage has our highest recommendation, and we will certainly plan to stay there again on our next visit to Kansas City.
Wonderful Location and Excellent Hosts

My wife and I stayed at the Bell Cottage for a great weekend away from the rush of life. We found the cottage to be charming, warm and inviting. The hosts, James and Dean were absolutely wonderful and kind to us and the breakfast and coffee in the mornings made our days even more enjoyable. It is within walking distance of Kansas City's famous plaza so we enjoyed the exercise and the entertainment that is so close by. Would recommend to anyone who wants a quiet and enjoyable night away!
Absolutely wonderful experience-- Stay Here!!

My 10 year old son and I visited Kansas City for his spring break and wanted a more authentic experience than a hotel or motel. I was a little nervous, as this was our first stay in a bed and breakfast. Jim and Dennis were the ultimate hosts and made our vacation such a delightful experience! They made a roaring fire and hot tea for us each night after our days of sightseeing. On the day it snowed, Jim went out of his way to drive us to Union Station, because I wasn't experienced in driving in snow/ice. Jim also made dinner for us that night, again so that I wouldn't have to drive in the bad weather. Their house is very conveniently located-- a close driving distance to tourist attractions. The bedrooms and bathroom were exceptionally clean. Their hospitality was beyond our expectations. Stay here- you won't regret it!
At home in KC

My wife and I spent four nights at The Bell Cottage and could not have been happier with our choice! Not only did we have our own bedroom and bathroom, but our own living room, all of which were exceptionally clean, comfortable, and felt like home. Our breakfasts were delicious and the evening wine and cheese plates were a great way to start off our evenings! To top it off, The Bell Cottage is perfectly located. A ten minute walk to the Plaza, through very nice and safe neighborhoods, brings all of the food choices you could want and all the shopping you can handle. Jim and Dean were great and we are glad we found them. We will be back!
Return to Kansas City

As a former transplant to Kansas City, who now lives in Iowa, The Bell Cottage provided the perfect location to reunite with old friends and my old home. My wife and I were hosted with exceptional friendliness, good food, and comfortable lodgings fit for kicking off your shoes after a long day on The Plaza. We'll definitely return to The Bell Cottage - no reservations in recommending this ideal B&B.
Ideal weekend getaway

When I want to visit a city, I want to FEEL that city's best "soul." The Bell Cottage is the perfect place to base a Kansas City visit, and I have stayed here several times. The hosts' hospitality is Midwestern-friendly (even though Dean is a transplant from "back East"). Accommodations are impeccably clean and decorated well without being too "frilly," like some B&Bs. The cottage is in a lovely, tree-lined neighborhood but with the bustling, historic Country Club Plaza area within walking distance (you might want to take the short cab ride back from the restaurant or bar). Try this place once and you WILL be back.
