Have stayed with Miss Pat at Twin Mansions many times. It is returning "home" for us. We had family gathering, dinner, birthday party. Absolutely perfect. Just tell them what you want and they provide everything.

The Perfect Getaway

5 on April 11, 2016

My husband and I eloped at the Mansions. Miss Pat was so helpful and wonderful to work with. We had the perfect weekend. Our room was beautiful and spacious, and the food at Nate's Place was fabulous, with the best sweet tea we have ever had. We will be making this our home away from home and plan to celebrate many more happy occasions there.

Ft Scott getaway

We were in town for a family wedding and this B&B was recommended by the bride. We were sceptical at first but chose to stay and very glad we did. The mansion was very cozy and very clean and tidy. We would differently consider staying here on our next overnight visit

Innkeeper Response
We so appreciate that you have been "won over" to experience a Bed and Breakfast. We take pride in keeping our guest rooms and amenities very contemporary to meet your needs. As you discovered our unique guest rooms are no longer Grandma's spare bedroom. We strive for a boutique hotel status with the heart and hospitality of Bed and Breakfast. I'm thrilled you appreciated our efforts. Come back soon!

Lovely small town B&B

4.6 on October 16, 2015

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Lyons B&B and were so pleasantly surprised to find that Fort Scott, KS was a quaint little town. Miss Pat at the B&B was so elegant and welcoming. Miss Lori, the wonderful chef that served us during our "lover's feast" private dinner at the B&B was very enjoyable. Just everything about our experience at the Lyons was above and beyond even our high expectations. We will definitely go back again!

Another fantastic stay!

Pat and her husband were great hosts as always. Friendly and very helpful! The room was fantastic, the shower was AMAZING, and the bed was one of the most comfy beds I've ever slept on! Oh, and the breakfast next door hit the spot the next morning. The Twin Mansions has become one of my favorite places to go just to get away!

Amazing property, outstanding hospitality, and beautiful rooms.

Simply The Best

5 on May 18, 2015

Without questions, my favorite place to stay! Although the town of Ft. Scott had plenty of great activities and sites, once finished with the fort, the antique shops, the disc golf course and the mountain bike trails, I always wind up spending as much time in my room as possible. The history of the house, the fantastic owners an hostess, and the remarkable food an service next door, always leave me pretending I'm in another time altogether.

Miss Pat was absolutely amazing! She opened her B&B to a group of 20 Eagle Scouts riding their bikes across the country! We could not have asked for a more generous women! The entire town welcomed us, showering our group with VIP treatment. They made our journey possible and memorable. We can't thank you enough for being the perfect hostess!
