About

Welcome to the Inn on Crescent Lake, located in historic Excelsior Springs, Missouri. Only 30 miles from downtown Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City International Airport, the Inn is perfectly situated for a relaxing weekend getaway and provides an excellent lodging alternative to business travelers. The stately three-story 1915 Georgian Colonial mansion sits on 22 acres and is surrounded by two crescent-shaped ponds, historically known as Crescent Lake. The Inn was meticulously renovated in 1997. While the architectural integrity of the Inn was preserved, all of the rooms were completely modernized.

Stayed in the Tuscany Suite. It was relaxing and private. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back!


Best Bed & Breakfast ever!

My wife and I stayed one night at the Inn on Crescent Lake for our 20th anniversary. I knew it was there for several years, but was waiting for a special occasion. I wish I had not waited so long! We loved it. The house was beautiful and our room was spacious and very comfortable. We went on a weekday and had the house to ourselves with much-needed peace and quiet. The host and hostess were great, and the breakfast was delicious. We will go again, and we recommend this to anyone and everyone else!


Great B&B

Beautiful B&B! It was our 1st experience at a B&B and we really enjoyed everything about it!


a wonderfully relaxing anniversary

4.4 on August 12, 2015

We appreciated the quiet solitude that this property affords. We also greatly appreciated Craig & Beverly's attention to detail and their desire to serve us, without going overboard in intruding in our desire to be alone as a couple. At a different BnB, the hosts were so personable that they wanted to visit with us for over an hour at each meal. They were very friendly and interesting people, but our purpose for going to a BnB was to spend time alone as a couple. At the Inn on Crescent Lake, we experienced a perfect balance between friendliness and privacy. Thank you for an amazing anniversary celebration.


World class B&B

After much searching, we chose this B&B for our 18th anniversary. Best decision ever! Beverly and Craig were absolutely wonderful, and the hotel was very romantic and beautifully done. We enjoyed the paddle boat in the lake, lounged at the pool, and took a stroll along the grounds - it was all amazing. Our biggest decision now is which room to stay at next!


Just like paradise

This was our 3rd time visiting the Inn. We stayed 2 nights over the weekend, and even though each time we don't think it can get any better, it always is. The setting is peaceful, beautiful and perfect in every way. Craig & Beverly are such gracious hosts, and always make us feel welcome. We'll be back for #4 soon!!

Wonderful Time

4.2 on June 06, 2015

We had a wonderful time at the Inn on Crescent Lake. Beverly and Craig were a blessing and even though they had flooding in their own house because of nature, they still made us feel well taken care of! We will be back.
