luxurious but casually comfortable

Delightful beautiful home exceeded expectations. So much to do in surrounding area and such a pleasure to return to our comfortable but elegant room/suite. The food and service was exceptional. Very private and intimate. Such nice amenities included, smart tv, refreshments in room, beautiful delicious breakfast. Can't wait to get back to Fort Scott.


Amazing Stay!

Absolutely a waste wonderful stay!! Miss Pat is so welcoming and accommodating. I would stay again in a heartbeat!


There are better choices

The "bed" portion of our stay was alright, but we have had better experiences at other KS B&Bs. However, the "breakfast" portion of our stay was outstanding! When we return to Fort Scott, we will definitely visit Nate's Place, but we will find another place to stay.


Outstanding

We took a weekend trip to Fort Scott from Wichita to see the town and found this option, I think it was Trip Advisor. Sorry. Anyway, it was excellent. Great communication before, during and after our stay from Miss Pat. We had a great room, super service. We also had a drink in the bar and that was a treat, and then the private dinner that night, prepared by Miss Lori. Fantastic! It was a very special visit and we will come back to Fort Scott just to stay here again. Highly recommended. Also, go to the Gordon Parks museum and the fort while you're in town. On our next visit, we plan to simply relax at Twin Mansions - sit on the porch and read. Oh boy - can't wait.


Great visit

My wife and and I visited Lyons Twin Mansions for our anniversary. We stayed for two nights and had a great visit! Miss Pat took great care of us and the mansion is in great shape. Everything was very clean. We really enjoyed the included breakfast at Nate's Place. We would definitely recommend a stay here.


Beautiful retreat

5 on June 08, 2017

My wife and I spent our 22nd anniversary here. It was wonderful. The palace is a romantic getaway. We enjoyed the grounds. The hammock by the coi pond is a great place to spent the evening. The dinner for two was fabulous. I recommend the Chateaubriand for two it was excellent. We brought orange juice and had mimosas in the morning with the bottle of champagne in our room. The lovers package comes with roses, chocolates and champagne. The rose pedals scattered in the room was a nice touch.


An Amazing Anniversary!!

5 on May 05, 2017

My husband and I just celebrated our one year anniversary at the Twin Mansions. One word...wow!! Miss Pat and her staff went above and beyond to make our stay super special. We indulged in a Welcome Surprise of cheese, crackers, fruit and wine, which was waiting in the Emerald Bay suite for us upon arrival. The suite was incredible and we will be back to enjoy the hot tub/shower/sauna very soon, hopefully! I had planned for us to stay in a different suite the second night, but we loved our room so much we decided not to move, after all. The second night we had a private three course dinner at Nate's Place which exceeded our expectations by a long shot! Miss Lori, our chef, helped me surprise my husband with a slow dance to our wedding song, which brought joyful tears to my husband, and myself. Each night, while we were having dinner, the staff at the mansion helped me to arrange a surprise of cake, champagne, gifts, rose petals, candles, etc., that were awaiting us in our suite. We will always cherish the romantic memories we made during our stay. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back! Thank you, Miss Pat, for making this an anniversary that will be hard to top!


Awesome B&B

In room jaquzzi the best. Great breakfast at Nate's Love the privacy and owners


Very Welcoming

4.0 on April 20, 2017

My husband and I went to Fort Scott just for a little getaway and we certainly enjoyed ourselves. Miss Pat and her staff are awesome. This is a great place, possible a new home away from home. The only negative that we had is that the bed and breakfast website showed there were numerous "onsite activities" and when we asked about them, nobody knew anything about it.


Everything was great

5 on April 03, 2017

Miss Pat and her staff are over accommodating and very friendly. It was a nice relaxing stay, and they provided us with suggestions for things to do in the area and any other questions that we had (often before we could ask). The only thing that I could say that was a negative during our stay would be the firmness of the mattress. We both woke up with shoulder and back pain. It may be that we are used to sleeping on a pillow top mattress. Either way we will definitely come back in hopes that we can arrange to be in a room with a softer mattress. After all, if you can't sleep comfortably, everything else is affected. Overall a great place to spend a relaxing weekend, and experience all that Ft Scott has to offer.
