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. By the way, a short distance from the famous 18th and vine jazz district. Although the Overture rents multiple rooms, the facility is not large enough for wedding or special events.

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!

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

Stayed in the Garden Suite which was clean and spacious. Shower was tiny, not good for my 6'3" husband, but fine for me. Mattress could have been better, but wasn't bad. Breakfast was nothing special.

Five stars across the board for this wonderful B&B! Luke was so accommodating and gave a great historic overview of the home and area. If you're a history buff, this is surely the place for you! We stayed in the Victorian room and it was very clean and cozy with our own huge bathroom. The artwork and decorations in the house alone are worth the stay! The fresh peach jalapeño jam made from the peach trees in the backyard was to die for as well. Will definitely stay here again whenever we're in Kansas City again!
