Most historic bed and breakfast Post Civil War America, circa 1884 located in the heart of downtown Kansas City Missouri and cross roads arts district. The B&B is Within walking distance of the following attractions: Kaufman Center of Performing Arts, Bartle Hall Convention Center, Sprint Center arena and Power and Light District, Kansas City Art District featuring First Friday Arts Run, The National World War One Museum, short distance to the new kc street car featuring daily free runs from union station to the farmers market until 2 a. m. local Gourmet Restaurants, and Many more attractions.

I attended a seed confrence ealry November for a week and stayed at Overture. Very nice rooms, friendly and welcoming staff, good food, and an overall at home feel. Alos quite conveninetly located - my congress was at the Crowne Center and I could conveniently walk ther in 15min. Great place to stay.

Where to begin... upon entering the 1812 Overture B&B, you were able to tell right away you were in for a fantastic stay. The home is decorated so beautifully. We were greeted by Pedro & Luke like we were longtime friends returning for a visit (this was our first stay, but will not be our last). Luke gave us a tour of the 1st floor, which included a living room, parlor, dining room and sitting room. Throughout the tour Luke told us of the history of the “Irish Hill Neighborhood” and the 20 year old Irish woman that owned the home in 1884. Her parents owned the house next door, which is no longer there. He also pointed out the furniture that was Hattie’s original that had survived over the last 132 years. We then went outside to the lovely outdoor patio area and then to the private Hot Tub gazebo. We enjoyed the Hot Tub on both Saturday and Sunday nights. The tour continued to the upstairs suites, there are 5 of them all decorated in their own special theme. We were lucky enough to stay in the Blue Room, which had its own private 2 person Jacuzzi tub, which we enjoyed on Sunday & Monday. Breakfasts served up by Luke were incredible. Not only is Luke an accomplished artist, he is surely a force in the kitchen serving up the most delicious egg omelets with as much “zing” as you need! Please make sure you try their homemade jalapeno each jelly on a slice of toast or English muffin, it is out of this world! Our 2 days were extremely relaxing and enjoyable, we visited with both Pedro and Luke on a few occasions, and they were both always happy to share a little more history and knowledge of this historic house and the surrounding area. Thank you so much Pedro & Luke, we hope to see you very soon! Lori & John PS: Next time we want to try your "World Famous Fried Eggs" !!

I absolutely love this special B&B. I am beyond grateful to have found this hidden gem. Pedro and Luke are the most hospitable hosts, and the room that I stayed in was so roomy and cosey. I highly recommend staying here if ever in KC.

Pros: nice historic house, good price for room, Luke and Pedro are very helpful and gracious hosts. Cons: no soap/shampoo, only lotion. Nice deck outside room has view blocked by big bush. Breakfast was good, but could have been a bit more special than fried eggs.

I came to Kansas City for work and decided to stay in a B & B, and am so happy I did. I rented the Guatemalan Getaway and was so pleased. There was a lot of room, great view, and I had my own bathroom. I was very happy that my mini fridge was stocked with water daily and breakfast was offered. Overall, great location and price! Thanks for the accommodations Luke!

If you're looking for a B&B near downtown, look into the 1812 Overture. A very good value with good service and a really cool historic home. For a suite-like experience, ask for the Guatemala. Can't go wrong with the 1812 Overture!

We will stay here again next time we are in KCMO.

Would return to 1812 Overture B&B if in Kansas City again. Luke & Pedro were very pleasant and attentive to our needs.

This B&B was in walking distance of the concert venue we saw the summer land tour. Luke was our host, he gave my wife and I a tour of the house, told us about the history of it and point out several places around the art district of KC for us to check out. A very good stay.

Luckily we found this B & B along our cross country journey. Luke's enthusiasm and knowledge of art & local history made our stay more interesting. The house is like a museum with art & artifacts at every turn. I recommend this to all, especially those want to enjoy a delicious breakfast with homemade peach jam from his trees & interesting conversation with the type of patrons who select such an accessible & fun residence. Thanks- Wendy & Mollie
