Most historic bed and breakfast Post Civil War America, circa 1884 located in the heart of downtown Kansas City Missouri and cross roads arts district. The B&B is Within walking distance of the following attractions: Kaufman Center of Performing Arts, Bartle Hall Convention Center, Sprint Center arena and Power and Light District, Kansas City Art District featuring First Friday Arts Run, The National World War One Museum, short distance to the new kc street car featuring daily free runs from union station to the farmers market until 2 a. m. local Gourmet Restaurants, and Many more attractions. By the way, a short distance from the famous 18th and vine jazz district. Although the Overture rents multiple rooms, the facility is not large enough for wedding or special events.

Luckily we found this B & B along our cross country journey. Luke's enthusiasm and knowledge of art & local history made our stay more interesting. The house is like a museum with art & artifacts at every turn. I recommend this to all, especially those want to enjoy a delicious breakfast with homemade peach jam from his trees & interesting conversation with the type of patrons who select such an accessible & fun residence. Thanks- Wendy & Mollie

Stayed in the Garden Suite which was clean and spacious. Shower was tiny, not good for my 6'3" husband, but fine for me. Mattress could have been better, but wasn't bad. Breakfast was nothing special.

Five stars across the board for this wonderful B&B! Luke was so accommodating and gave a great historic overview of the home and area. If you're a history buff, this is surely the place for you! We stayed in the Victorian room and it was very clean and cozy with our own huge bathroom. The artwork and decorations in the house alone are worth the stay! The fresh peach jalapeño jam made from the peach trees in the backyard was to die for as well. Will definitely stay here again whenever we're in Kansas City again!

This week I had the opportunity to take a vacation getaway in Kansas city. Staying at 1812 Overture was the best. The location is excellent and convenient to all part of the city. Luke cooks an amazing breakfast made to order. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast to any one who wants to be in good location and in a great place.

Great experience. Luke is very friendly and outgoing. His recommendations on downtown were spot on. The art and antiques of this B&B are inspiring. Would absolutely recommend!

Location was optimal..walking distance to many areas! right off the interstate with no interstate noise or traffic. Luke was very informative and very hospitable!. We were celebrating our anniversary and received the most awesome cake! Lots of attention to little details that meant a lot and made us feel very comfortable! Food was amazing! Will stay again when in the area!

We went to KC to see the Liberty Memorial and Arabia; a river boat that sank in 1856. The Overture is in the downtown area which was conveniently located for both sites. Luke our host was very helpful, charming, and personable. We will be back for more.

I stayed with my girlfriend here for a long weekend and it was wonderful. The Victorian-era house was filled with marvelous antiques and the garden out back was delightful. Luke and Pedro were so kind and helpful; they treated us like family. One evening my girlfriend and I wanted to eat some food we had brought outside, and Luke and Pedro not only agreed to it, but they set up the table with napkins, dinnerware and candles for us. It was such a sweet and thoughtful gesture. Luke knows a lot about the house and neighborhood's history, as well as local places to eat and visit. We had plenty of luggage and Luke cheerfully helped us get it in and out of the hotel. We felt welcomed and cared-for, and are looking forward to our next visit. Thanks, guys!

We stayed three nights at the 1812 Overture. Our hosts were welcoming, provided great service and tips on what to do and where to go. The setting is close to all downtown and Performing Arts Center activities. Breakfasts were cooked to order and were just great. The decor of this historic home is very eclectic, and just a bit more TLC might be in order to make it appear its best, but we recommend this B & B!

I stayed for only one night because I was in town for an audition, and I have never had a better experience staying anywhere than I did here. Charming B&B with a lot of history and character, I was amazed with the warm, generous welcome by the hosts, Luke and Pedro. I feel so lucky to have had the chance to stay with genuinely wonderful people in a beautiful house. I had quite nervous, given that it was my first time traveling alone, but I had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay, chatting with the hosts and learning the story behind the house and the city. I can't thank them enough for giving such a great experience. P.S. Make sure you check out Luke's artwork, he is incredible!
