Love this place!!

5 on April 20, 2015

My husband and I stayed for our Honeymoon and our anniversary. The place is spectacular, everyone is friendly and it's really really beautiful. We live in town , this is always our first choice. It feels like staying out of time without the inconvience of having to leave town if something comes up. Definetly coming back !


Best bed and breakfast ever!

5 on April 11, 2015

We LOVED this bed and breakfast. Will definitely be going again.


Nice room, restaurant experience very bad

3.8 on March 23, 2015

The B&B itself is quite lovely, and the room was fine, we were left in peace and quiet- although the amenities were not quite up to par (limited amount of things in mini-bar, toilitries were not individual, just big bottles that God knows how many people had used) - the main problem really was with the restaurant. Yes, they were short on help, but we were ignored for 20 minutes, had to ask 4 times for our table to be wiped off, 3 times for drinks, 3 times for coffee refills, food was above average...when it finally came. Brunch shouldn't take 2 hours, especially considering it was just an omelet. It was a sour end to a pretty nice little trip- and we left feeling negative about the experience. If that hadn't have happened, we would probably return, but now, not so sure.


Lovely Quiet Place

We spent the night here recently on a trip to view the Fort Scott historic site. Pat, the owner, suggested a different room from the one we booked, which turned out to be just right for us--the Royal Safari room. The hosts are unobtrusive and helpful, suggesting dinner choices and arranging for breakfast the next day--we were one of just three guests, I think. The house is quiet and very comfortable--once we got the air conditioning working properly, our room became very pleasant--we didn't want to leave.


Great Place!

Had to stay in Fort Scott for business and am so pleased with my stay at the Twin Mansions. Room, hospitality and breakfast were all wonderful! Would recommend to all my friends!!!


Victorian Charm with Modern Amenities

5 on March 05, 2015

Upon arriving at the Twin Mansions Bed & Breakfast Hotel, we were met by our hostess, Miss Pat. This grand lady made us feel at home in her home with her dynamic personality & friendly manner. The interior of the Twin Mansions is a show place of Victorian architecture with its bay windows, gorgeous woodwork, & intricate spiral staircase ascending to the suites on the upper floors. We rented the Royal Safari Suite, which the sitting/TV area is a converted sunporch that sports an African themed decor harkening back to the days of Teddy Roosevelt. Between the sunporch & interior bathroom, we had plenty of room to enjoy & relax in. The state of the art shower & sauna should be a real selling feature to many couples seeking an upscale B&B experience. That glass shower had all the bells & whistles including our choice of lighting, radio, rain forest showerhead, hand held shower wand, side jets, & the sauna option. With that said, I appreciated sleeping on one of the most comfortable beds that I have encountered in our travels. A place can have a lot of amenities & still fall short if the bed doesn't provide a good night's sleep. Ours did & left us refreshed & ready for our complimentary breakfast the next morning at the twin mansion next door. We were given the choice of picking our breakfast off a generous menu. We tried the sausage gravy & biscuits and were really impressed. The other mansion with Nate's Place, the restaurant, is nearly as beautiful & does offer a few tastefully appointed rooms on its upper floor as well. I really can not think of any negatives concerning our stay. The TV in our room was large & modern with a DVD player, too. Our room was very clean with good towels provided. The furniture such as the leather couch & recliner were very comfortable. This Fort Scott B&B provides tremendous value. We will definitely be back!


Another Great Stay!

5 on February 10, 2015

Our first visit to Lyons Twin Mansions was over 15 years ago, and we fell in love with this bed & breakfast, Miss Pat and Larry, and the entire town! We have visited several times since then. When we roll into Fort Scott and walk into the mansion, we feel like we are transported back in time. Miss Pat is a most wonderful southern host. No one does it better than Lyons Twin Mansions!


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!

5 on January 06, 2015

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 :)
