Wonderful place to stay! I'm ready to go back!

5 on January 27, 2015

I had a late start leaving town, so I called to make sure I could check in late. Pat answered the phone and was incredibly nice and helpful. When we got to Fort Scott, Pat greeted us and gave us a quick tour of the mansion. The entire place was beautiful. The rooms were nicely decorated and looked very warm and inviting. Our room was fantastic. It was spacious and very comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was huge! The bed and sheets were probably the most comfortable I've slept on in my life as well! We had a great stay and after seeing some of the other rooms in the mansions we're already planning another trip to Fort Scott!

Amazing Stay!

Miss Pat and her staff our a dime a dozen. My boyfriend and I went and stayed the day after the new year. We were greeted by Miss Pat and shown around. Our room was absolutely amazing and so comfy. We did the 6 course meal--which if you go--you have to do!!! Prepare for a lot of food and friendly company. It was so romantic and such a great time. Definitely want to go back! Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away :)

We had a wonderful stay at the Lyons Mansion in the Adventure Suite. Miss Pat and her family are gracious hosts.

We really miss the sit down breakfasts at the main house. This time it feels like staying at a hotel, but better food. The cottage seemed a little run down compared to the past times we have stayed - maybe a little neglected.

Beautiful mix of new and old

The Twin Mansions Bed and Breakfast was absolutely breathtaking. The rooms were luxuriously large and cozy as were the beds (all king size). Miss Pat was very welcoming and gracious during my stay, and answered any questions I had prior to coming very quickly. What I loved most about the B&B was the building itself. I believe it was built in the 1800s and they've done a beautiful job of updating all the amenities while still maintaining the charm of the original wood, oriental rugs, etc. I normally enjoy staying in most hotels, but this place didn't feel at all like a hotel. It was somebody's home, and they made me feel as though it was my home too. I wish I could have stayed longer!

I'll definitely be staying again.

Recently I stayed at the Lyon's Twin Mansions and was BLOWN away by all the charm the mansions had to offer. The staff was outstanding and I felt at home from the minute I arrived. During my stay I was the Maid of Honor for my best friends wedding and I must admit helping plan a wedding while you are 4+ hours away can be a little complicated. But Ms. Pat and her staff helped every step of the way to make sure the day surpassed the Bride & Grooms wildest dreams. I would highly recommend staying at the Lyon's Twin Mansions.

Perfect place to stay

If you are going to Fort Scott, Kansas, then the perfect place to stay is Lyons Twin Mansions. Ms Pat can not do enough to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and breakfast at Nate's Place next door is to die for!!! We stayed in the Royal Safari Room and it was just perfect........nice and light, very large...(big enough for a huge King size bed, a three seater lounge and a recliner. ). A large tv, a bar and fridge were also in our room and there was still plenty of room to walk around!.......we will certainly return to Fort Scott for a "get away" just to experience another stay at Lyons Twin Mansions again.

A Great Place to Stay

The mansions are so beautiful and relaxing and Mrs. Pat was so kind while during our stay! Anything we needed, she accommodated. We will definitely be staying there again!
