Welcome to the Inn on Crescent Lake, located in historic Excelsior Springs, Missouri. Only 30 miles from downtown Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City International Airport, the Inn is perfectly situated for a relaxing weekend getaway and provides an excellent lodging alternative to business travelers. The stately three-story 1915 Georgian Colonial mansion sits on 22 acres and is surrounded by two crescent-shaped ponds, historically known as Crescent Lake. The Inn was meticulously renovated in 1997. While the architectural integrity of the Inn was preserved, all of the rooms were completely modernized.

I surprised my wife with a one-night stay in the Garden room for our 20th anniversary. We were very impressed! The room was clean and the private outdoor hot tub added a romantic touch. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was very tasty. The price was reasonable and Beverly and Craig were extremely nice. We look forward to visiting again soon!

My husband and I stayed at the inn this last Friday night for Veteran's Day and it was a wonderful stay. Beverly and Craig are so inviting and friendly. The Inn is beautiful and the walking trails (even though cold out) were amazing. Beautiful wooded setting and very romantic. The breakfast was amazing and bustling with other couples as it was a full house and so much fun to see other couples out enjoying each others company. The inn is beautifully decorated and the chocolate chip cookies are great. If you are looking for a nice romantic get away please consider going to see Beverly and Craig for your needs.

My wife and I had a great stay at the Inn. It is a very stately mansion and grounds. Certainly, one of the better B&B's that we have stayed in recent years. Our bed was extremely comfortable and the morning breakfast was different and yet wonderful!

We stayed one night for our anniversary in the Cottage. We wished we could have stayed for a week! The Cottage and grounds were lovely, Beverly and Craig were incredibly attentive hosts and nice people, and the food was yummy!

This was my third visit this year but the first for my husband. I stayed once with my daughter and once with my sisters. It is a wonderful place to stay. Its quiet, beautiful, clean and comfortable. The hosts are very eager to please and the food is very good. On two on my visits we saw deer right on the property.

We were welcomed by the owner who was really sweet and attentive! The property was beautiful and we enjoyed a great 1 night stay. We really wished it could have been several nights! I ended up purchasing a romantic package (highly recommend) and a couples massage. Neither disappointed! Thank you for a great stay and we will be back for sure!

The Cottage is a large private bungalow that offers a feeling of warmth and tranquility to anyone traveling to the area or those looking for a reasonable vacation rental for their Missouri getaway. The building originally was the estate’s carriage house. It now is a romantic two-story bungalow that will be your “home away from home.” The first floor includes a kitchen, dining area, a tile-topped breakfast bar, half-bath, and cozy living room. Kitchen amenities include a microwave, coffee maker, and full-size refrigerator. (Please note: For guest safety, no cooking capabilities are available in the Cottage.) The second floor features original hardwood floors, a king-sized bed, sitting area, an two-person Jacuzzi tub, and custom walk-in shower. Each level offers a TV, with a DVD player on the first level.Guests who stay in the Cottage may choose to have breakfast delivered at no additional fee or be served breakfast in the inn’s sun-drenched solarium.
This two-room suite at the Inn on Crescent Lake provides the ultimate in privacy and seclusion with its location in the Pool House. Beautiful views of the lake and pool, a vaulted ceiling, and Tuscan decor combine to create the feeling of being in your own personal European paradise. The king-sized bed is quite comfortable and the in-room two-person corner Jacuzzi tub is spacious. This room also offers a mini-fridge for convenience. In the bathroom’s sitting area, you can enjoy reading a book on the futon that looks out over the lake. The large walk-in shower provides a most relaxing experience. The Tuscany also has its own parking space just steps from the room’s entry.
Perhaps the most intriguing and eclectic space that we offer at the Inn on Crescent Lake, the three-room Crescent Suite features all the romance and old world charm found in a 100-year-old mansion. Lie back on the king-sized mahogany sleigh bed, and enjoy the moonlight streaming through the stained glass skylight overhead. The separate sitting room contains an oversized two-person Jacuzzi tub in the corner by windows that provide views of the pool area. The sitting area also has a club chair, television, and daybed located in the dormer window. The bathroom includes the mansion’s original tub as a refurbished claw-foot tub/shower combination.
Decorated to be a romantic and inviting space, the Ballroom at the Inn on Crescent Lake is ideal for your long-awaited weekend getaway, anniversary, or honeymoon. This room, located on the Mansion’s third floor, offers an idyllic combination of space, luxury, and romantic touches. The Ballroom provides a number of cozy nooks to curl up in and read or enjoy the views. Linger between the sheets of the king-sized canopy bed, relax in the beautiful two-person Jacuzzi tub, or savor the spacious walk-in marble shower in the bathroom. This expansive suite also includes a secluded sitting area with table and chairs nestled by an electric fireplace, or perch on the cozy loveseat to watch a DVD or listen to CDs.
Located on the first floor of the mansion, this room is one of our most popular because of its great extras. Gaze at the moon and stars from your own private outdoor hot tub! Or enjoy a colorful show as many different species of birds gather at a feeder located mere steps from the old-fashioned country porch by your private entrance. The bathroom includes a walk-in shower with a built-in bench seat. The queen-sized bed invites to you settle in for a little longer. This room also is ADA compliant, with a ramp providing access to the entryway.
The name and décor of this elegant room conjure up images of romantic destinations! It features a oversized corner Jacuzzi tub for two in the bedroom, a queen-sized mahogany sleigh bed, and a sitting area for two, all surrounded by walls painted in rich, warm, luxurious colors. The black-and-white tile motif in the bathroom creates a background that lends visual drama to the red claw-foot tub, perfect for a long, hot soak. If the tub doesn’t appeal, the walk-in shower custom-built in black tile will fill the bill. Look out the windows and see a gorgeous view of the gazebo, the pool and the ponds!
The soft gold walls embrace pictures of France and the Tour d'Eiffel. Close your eyes and you will imagine yourself in a Parisian Hotel. This room can be set as either two twin beds or a king bed. Sit in one of the two luxurious velvet chairs and enjoy the views of the pool, pond, and front lawn. The bath features a standard whirlpool tub with a luxurious glass block shower enclosure.
Featuring hand-painted antique white on ivory striped walls that many guests mistake for fine wallpaper, the Stripe is a romantic, comfortable room. Two pearl-white cloth club chairs are located by the two windows overlooking the estate’s gated entry. From there you can enjoy sweeping views of the manicured front lawn as you catch up on your leisure reading. The bed is a mahogany king-sized sleigh bed with a luxurious comforter that whispers “Linger…linger…” to you. If you’re looking to unwind, draw a hot bath and soak away any stresses in an old-fashioned claw-foot tub/shower combination.
The original master bedroom of the mansion, the McCleary Room was the bedroom of Dr. and Mrs. Aretus McCleary. This room conjures up the elegance of the early 20th century with a mirrored armoire in one corner and plenty of room to move around. A mahogany king-sized sleigh bed dominates this space, which also includes a comfortable sitting area with two tall wingback chairs and great views out over the water and Ice House. Early risers will love the eastern exposure that allows sunlight to stream into the room. Chase the tension from your tired muscles with some time in the standard-sized Jacuzzi tub in the tiled bathroom. Small details in the room, such as old medicine boxes, take you back to the time when Dr. McCleary’s clinic was the largest of its kind in the world.
Our most affordable room, the Emerald Rose features a queen-size wrought-iron bed and original hardwood floors. The bath has a claw-foot tub/shower combination and a converted antique washbasin. You’ll love the romantic feel and decor of the room and the lovely view of the pool and ponds outside your windows. An elevated shelf that circles the entire room once was the course for the model train of Dr. McCleary’s grandson. Now it is the repository of an enchanting variety of curios, with rope lighting.
