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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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!

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.
Traditional Colonial colors warm this spacious room furnished in Chippendale and offering a restored, original bath with Jacuzzi tub. Richly painted Irish hunt prints hang over the elegant, king-sized bed with hand-tied canopy. Plaid "Mr. and Mrs." chairs sit companionably by the wood-burning fireplace.
This sunny, cheerful room features a queen-sized iron bed with bright brass cannonballs and is decorated in vintage Americana befitting the sponsor of Kansas City's favorite steakburger. After a long day, luxuriate in the unique 32-inch deep soaking tub or enjoy a treetop view from your private deck.
A porcelain Vermont Castings freestanding fireplace complements this authentic Cape Cod room. A cozy fire will warm you as you enjoy the turn-of-the-century carved oak furnishings, notably, your comfortable queen-sized bed. A restored, original bath adjoins.
The Loose family's Massachusetts summer house "Searocks" is inspiration for this guestroom and bath decorated in a navy and white nautical theme, boasting an ornate, queen-sized iron bed. A very private and spacious deck with porch swing overlooks the courtyard and rock waterfall.
This room has many comforts including a two-person Jacuzzi in the restored, original bath, a 13'x15' private deck with wrought-iron sunning chaises and a queen-sized, brass cannonball bed. Pastel decorator themes, favored by the creators of the "Eskimo Pie," are featured here.
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.
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. A quiet soul, Mary would have enjoyed this cozy room with copper accents (including a teapot collection), queen-sized pencil post bed, private bath and intimate little deck.
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.
The rich red patterns, vaulted ceiling, and charming accents are reminiscent of a spacious cottage inspired by landscape architect George Kessler. The room features all the amenities required for a memorable stay: a king-sized bed, free standing fireplace, an adjoining deck, a two-person Jacuzzi and separate stand-up shower in its generous bath. The comfortable club chairs are the perfect place to cozy up in front of the red Vermont castings wood-burning stove. Wake up to your choice of hot beverages and a newspaper that will be delivered to your door each morning.
