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!

Lovely B&B with a charming host. A warm welcome to us on our first visit to KC, relaxed and accommodating, set the tone for our holiday and forthcoming road trip. Thank you Luke and Pedro, we have no hesitation of recommending you to our friends if they are in the area. Steve & Sue (UK)

My sister, my cousin and myself stayed at the 1812 Overture B & B in September 2013 and were absolutely delighted with the level of service provided by our charming hosts. The rooms were decorated with flair and imagination, the breakfast offered a wide variety of delicious options, and the whole house had an intimate and old world atmosphere. Our host Luke was able to give us the history and background on the house and its local area and to share his enormous enthusiasm for Kansas City and its story. He was able to offer advice on where to eat and what to see, and he certainly went well out of his way to make sure we had a memorable stay.. In fact our stopover in Kansas City became one of the highlights of our trip to the United States thanks to Luke and Pedro. Truly recommended! Jeanette from Australia

A memorable weekend was planned in Kansas City. All the details were finalized with the exception of the lodging. After reading the reviews posted here and on other sites, 1812 Overture B&B was chosen. A call to the Innkeeper, Luke, secured the reservation. My first impression was "articulate and through". Two days prior to our departure, I received a call to confirm our reservation. Once again, I was impressed. But that could not have prepared us for the level of service we would received once we arrived. The innkeeper gave us a tour of the beautiful historical house and gardens, helped us to our room where we found every imaginable comfort including "iced lime water" waiting. Our breakfast was made to order and served on an elegantly set table. The stay at the 1812 Overture was the highlight of our trip and the hardest part to leave behind. We are already planning our next trip to this 5 STAR Bed and Breakfast

My husband and I came to Kansas City to celebrate our 18th Anniversary and to enjoy the Urban Farming Tour for the weekend. We stayed three nights and had a wonderful stay. Innkeepers Luke and Pedro were so accommodating and helpful with information about local sites and places to eat. The house and its story are fascinating. The other guests were fun to talk with. You can't go wrong if you stay here. Carlynn and Larry, Omaha
