Wonderful getaway!

Had a wonderful time at our first bed and breakfast! My fiancée and I weren't sure how the experience would go; however, Brenda & Bill made our stay a great first experience! We took advantage of the hot tub and the pool table. They were very accommodating and made us feel comfortable and let us enjoy their beautiful home! The breakfast we had was phenomenal! Thank you so very much and I look forward to our next stay!

Delightful B & B

The Egyptian room was as described. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a long deck to enjoy and take in the view of the property. If you enjoy pets such as cats, dogs, horses, and geese, this is the place for you. Brenda makes banana rum waffles that are out of this world and is quite accommodating to your schedule for meals. She is very friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and at home.

Awesome experience

We had a wonderful stay! Brenda and Bill take the time to make the stay as individual and special as you want it! Great attention to detail! Best sheets we have EVER slept in! Had a wonderful couple massage by the fireplace! Would HIGHLY reccomend.

Incredible First B&B Experience

4.6 on December 16, 2014

The Sunset Acres Bed & Breakfast was our first b&b experience, and it was amazing! Bill & Brenda were so hospitable, the house and grounds were beautiful, and the food was amazing! Brenda fixed us cream cheese and chive scrambled eggs, sausage patties, and pancakes with homemade fruit sauce, and all of it was delicious! They have a lot of animals on the property and quite a few cats in and out of the house, and since we love animals, that just added to the experience for us. We never felt like we were lacking anything and definitely hope to go back!

Innkeeper Response
What a pleasure it was to meet you both and very happy you enjoyed your stay. I hope you'll come back when every thing is a bit greener and the flowers are in bloom. It's my favor time of the year! Most of the cats are now in new homes! I think I'm gonna have to stop taking in so many strays at a time (if I can, it's so hard to shut the door of so many little unwanted faces)! Tilt we meet a again!

Upscale home away from home

My boyfriend and I were visiting Powell Gardens and decided to make a "get away" night of it. We found Sunset Acres online and it provided even more than it boated! The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable; the extra amenities (hottub, rec room, gane room) were fun and accessible; the innkeeper Brenda and her husband were friendly and helpful without being smothering; the breakfast Brenda made was simply fabulous! Overall it was like being at home, but without having to do any of the work to make it comfortable! We already have plans for returning and I highly recommend this to everyone.

Overnight stay

We wanted somewhere quiet and quaint for our anniversary. This is a very nice place to stay. We were lucky though, no one else was there so we had privacy time in the pool and hot tub area. Geese were not liking us in the pool, but they let us alone. Food was very good. My husband had never stayed at a bed and breakfast, the only thing he did not like was the bed was a little too soft for comfort.

Great Stay

This place was so relaxing. I was looking for a bed & breakfast to take my wife to on our honeymoon. Well I was so glad I picked Sunset Acres. The property is so pretty and the nights were great. Wonderful country setting that is close enough to the city. The owners are very nice and willing to please you and make sure your stay is great. The breakfast mmmmm it was yummy. The plates of food were prepared perfect and right when you come to the kitchen. The pool and hot tub was also a great touch. Late night swim topped the night off. Large patio for eating out on and enjoying the the outdoors with company. There is a large tv down stairs with lots of movies to enjoy with popcorn out of the kitchen. Or have a few rounds of pool on the pool table. Yes this bed and breakfast has it all and we will be back for sure. Thanks again Brenda for the great stay.

Anniversary Stay

4.8 on July 06, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Acres!! Who knew a place this amazing was only 45 minutes away from us!! We will be returning!! Brenda and hubby were just the perfect hosts, not too overbearing but perfectly hospitable. Everyone in the Kansas City area should get away here for the weekend! And if you are passing through on I-70, it is worth the little trip south to stay here!!

Hospitality and friendliness superior

We stayed here for a weekend anniversary getaway. A great place to go and find peace. Brenda and Bill were fabulous hosts and even catered to my complicated dietary restrictions. Breakfast was phenomenal! We enjoyed the beautiful acreage complete with ducks, horses, cats, dogs, pond, pool, and huge deck with hot tub! We enjoyed roasting marshmallows, relaxing in the hot tub and the fishing was great too! Definitely would recommend this B and B to others!

Your partners only next destination

What caught my eye on this site was the deck and the hot tub knowing my wife loves beautiful views the pond is just a bonus. Then we arrived and the hospitality is amazing and the rooms are private. Breakfast was overfilling and delicious. If you forget something its probably already there waiting for you! We forgot sandals and first thing she mentions about the hot tub is there are sandals available. I bought contact solution on way down there and to my surprise there was some already there, darn it. Her years in this business shows she cares and know what to prepare for. They are very accomodating as to arrival, breakfast, and even late snack times, but dont always expect random snack. We are forever ruined comparing every b and b to this one at the top of our list.

Innkeeper Response
It's always such a pleasure meeting wonderful people such as yourselves. We very much enjoyed visiting with you and hope we will meet again in the future. Thank you so much for being such good people. I thank you for your kind words. Wishing you all the best in the future ahead. God Bless.

About the innkeepers

I had down a lot of research over the years about becoming an Inn Keeper. Finally we moved to the country were it became real once the kids grew up and left the nest. We had such a big house for just the two of us and I hated my city job, so we opened Sunset Set Acres. I love meeting new people, cooking and decorating. So now we have been open for 12 years and I still love being here for my guests.
