Best B&B We've Stayed At!!

5 on December 11, 2014

My mother, sister and I stayed here for a shopping weekend. We had 2 rooms and had an amazing breakfast! Nancy helped prepare a couple of gifts for my mom and sister and had them wrapped and waiting in the rooms when we arrived! Perfectly amazing experience!

A gem that is tucked away off The Plaza

We stayed in the carriage house for our anniversary. The accommodations were fantastic. We met some interesting guests from DC. Loved the breakfast. I play on booking for next year.


4.0 on November 19, 2014

great location, very nice breakfast, edging on gourmet, not just oatmeal and a juice. Staff was very pleasant as well. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Why did we wait so long?

My wife and I stumbled upon Southmoreland on the internet while planning our 10 Year wedding anniversary trip to KC. We will not be waiting 10 years to come back. We want to come back next weekend, just to experience the Nancy's hospitality and Mark's grilled croissant french toast and pork chops! Though we may not be able to come down every weekend, we do look forward to visiting in the near future. Mike & Jen - Omaha, NE

Fun weekend

Probably would choose a room without the dormers next time, felt a bit closed in. My fault, I picked it! Everything else was outstanding as always. Am always surprised at how quiet it is in the house, filled with people.

Another home run

I did a glowing review already - and when completed, I got a "server error" message. So this is short & sweet: great porch, great people, wonderful food, delightful porch(es), comfortable accommodation. :)

Great location to walk and enjoy the Plaza, Art Institute and Museum. Enjoyed sitting on the large deck surrounded by nature and the sound of trickling water fall. Breakfast was amazing too!

Honeymoon getaway

We came here for our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Love that its located on a quiet street, but still close enough to enjoy the Plaza!

Kansas CIty is a lovely city

The Southmoreland is a beautiful old home. The hosts, Rick and Carrie (?) were very friendly and the gourmet breakfasts were outstanding. My husband missed having a TV in the room but he did get the news in the living room. Thanks for a hospitable stay.

You might first notice the queen-sized four poster mahogany bed flanked by brass lamps from a railroad club car, but the real treasures are on the walls: copies of Bingham portraits that have hung in this home since 1948. A private bath and oversized deck with a treetop urban view adjoins.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Mary Atkins

Like Southmoreland's last three sets of owners, Mary Atkins was a teacher. Her bequest was the original endowment for Kansas City's art museum.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

William Gilliss

The rich hunt colors, brass accents and duck prints of this "gentleman's library" decor is inspired by Gilliss' bachelor status among K.C.'s founders. A queen-sized pencil post bed, private bath and compact "dormer deck" overlooking the courtyard enhance the comfort of this handsome guestroom.
