I wanted to take my wife on a quick getaway to KC and found the 1812 online..I was glad I did! The location was perfect, the house and room unique and very relaxing and the breakfast company and meal...amazing! We will most assuredly recommend this place to others and make a return trip back ourselves!

I've been traveling to KC for 6 years and just now discovered the 1812 - serves me right for not exploring. Pedro and Like are awesome, super accommodating and welcoming. You can easily walk to crossroads and the streetcar. I'll be back!

Friendly service.

The Overture 1812 is a nice house, lovingly decorated and lovingly serviced. We stayed almost 2 weeks and at all times felt very welcome. Luke and Pedro are wonderful hosts. The onsite Dining refers to breakfast only, which was great, several choices, freshly prepared.

Perfect Getaway

My husband and I stayed at 1812 for our 9th anniversary. We loved the house, our room, our hosts Luke and Pedro, and really had a nice time. The other guests staying there were delightful! We will most definitely stay at 1812 again.

Great Stay in Kansas City

Overview of the history of the house, description of attractions and activities in the vicinity was excellent from Luke! It was a very pleasant stay in KC.

Wonderful and will be back!

We pulled up and were greeted by Pedro out front tending to the garden and front porch. He was super friendly and welcomed us, asked if we needed any help. Luke then came out and gave us a fascinating tour of the house (old with tons of character) including some history of the city. We were so excited to have found such a neat place for our short stay! The house was comfortable, the window seat from our top-floor bedroom was very cozy and offered a view of the city (Guatemalan room). Pedro and Luke answered all our questions about the city, gave great recommendations and Luke made us an amazing breakfast in the morning, complete with organic fruit from the garden. (He even came in a little early because we had to be out of there before breakfast typically started at 7am). Will certainly be back, LOVE the place and the hospitality!
