Great vintage B&B near downtown KC

4.6 on September 18, 2016

If you're looking for a B&B near downtown, look into the 1812 Overture. A very good value with good service and a really cool historic home. For a suite-like experience, ask for the Guatemala. Can't go wrong with the 1812 Overture!


Great spot.

Would return to 1812 Overture B&B if in Kansas City again. Luke & Pedro were very pleasant and attentive to our needs.


summer land tour fun in KC

4.8 on August 05, 2016

This B&B was in walking distance of the concert venue we saw the summer land tour. Luke was our host, he gave my wife and I a tour of the house, told us about the history of it and point out several places around the art district of KC for us to check out. A very good stay.


A wonderful stay in KC, Missouri

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


Good Value in KC

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.


Wonderful Historic B&B - Highly recommend!

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!


Excelente stay

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.

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!
