Talk about a 5+ out of a possible 5. This is it! Everything about the home was in top notch shape, yet dates back to 1889. We googled “elegant breakfast” and it was. Even looking out our bedroom window, walkways and gutters, clean and maintained—so who cares about them anyway—but it all shows this is a top notch bed and breakfast and topped off with great hospitality. Great anniversary for us!

This past weekend my husband took me away to Kansas City for my birthday. I was delighted when we pulled up to Bed and Breakfast but even more excited as we entered the front door. The place is so beautiful and clean. Carolyn and Steve were very hospitable and helpful. We stayed in the Yancy room. Even though our bathroom was down the hall, it was private and very accessible. They provided lush housecoats for us to use which were very nice. There was an amazing spread for breakfast...fruit parfait, homemade cinnamon rolls and an egg sausage pie. The whole experience was delightful.

We were on our way to Kansas City and decided to stay the night in a Bed and Breakfast near Kansas City. We picked Stone-Yancey House. It was the best decision of the trip. Everything was perfect. Room was great, food was great, locations was easy to get to and we enjoyed talking to Carolyn and Steve in the evening.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The room we had was terrifically appointed and had anything we would want in it. The location is very good inside Liberty. The morning breakfast was terrific and plentiful. Good coffee available early -a plus. Carolyn and Steve were really good hosts and a fund of information about local options. A really good place to stay - especially for a special location.

My wife and I have visited numerous Inns around the country and can assure you this one is top notch. Carolyn and Steve were great hosts. Genuinely concerned about our stay. The entire place was spotless, inside and out. Our room, The Withers, was huge and so nicely decorated. King bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding both mornings. Very different both days. The Hatcher’s seemed know the Liberty and Kansas city area well and had some good input on where to visit and dine. Don’t hesitate to give this one a try, you won’t be disappointed.

We truly enjoyed our stay in the Withers Room to celebrate our 3rd year Anniversary. The spacious and beautifully decorated room gave us time to relax and enjoy our time together. We were pampered by all the amenities that make one feel truly welcome! We enjoyed our delicious breakfast and were captivated by listening to our host share the history of her B&B. It is clear that they love to make each stay a memorable one. Thank you Carolyn and Steve! We were very pleased with our stay!

Our hosts went out of there way to make everything a great 44th wedding anniversary special.The room was very clean,spacious,and the bed was super. Breakfast was delicious, Would recommend this to to anyone . Thanks Carolyn and Steve.

We celebrated our anniversary in the Withers Room. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The house was immaculate, beautifully decorated and every detail was thought of to keep the history of the home. Carolyn and Steve were awesome hosts and made us feel like we were old friends. The food was five star and so delicious! Their suggestions regarding Liberty were spot on and we will definitely be back. We had a totally wonderful anniversary thanks to Carolyn and Steve.
5 on February 04, 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Carolyn and Steve welcomed us immediately upon arrival. They are such gracious hosts...we felt like we walked into a family member's home. The accommodations were spectacularly restored and still had some of the modern touches discretely available. Carolyn tailored made our breakfast to suit my husband's taste as well as allowing our son who attends William Jewell College to dine with us. Cannot wait to go back, Rob & Kelly Glen Carbon IL

We had an excellent stay at the Stone-Yancey house. We are from south KC, so it was quick drive. The stay was pleasant, accommodations were great and the food was FANTASTIC! Would highly recommend for KC dwellers looking for a weekend getaway.
5 on October 13, 2014
We are a military couple, and have stayed in B&Bs throughout the world. The Stone-Yancey House is the best -- Steve and Carolyn are superb hosts, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. If you are in the Kansas City area, it is a destination in itself.
5 on December 31, 2013
It was a wonderful time. My husband was apprehensive about Bed and Breakfast as he doesn't like staying in other people's homes. But he relaxed fairly quickly and enjoyed his time.
5 on November 18, 2013
I had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Stone-Yanc3y House. The owners are very cordial and personable folks. The home was immaculately clean. There have been several that I have stayed at that could have used a good dusting. That was not the case here. The room was very comfortable and the décor was beautiful and correct for the time period of the home. The first night when I came back in for the night, my bed had been turned down for me. The breakfasts were fit for a queen and presented beautifully. I definitely will return to this lovely B&B.
5 on October 07, 2013
Our stay at the Stone-Yancy House B&B was beyond any of our expectations. Everything was perfect down to the smallest detail. It was obvious that much effort was made to insure our stay was enjoyable. The room was magnificent. The food was excellent and the hospitality was warm and welcoming. I plan on staying there every time I am in Liberty, Missouri.
5 on September 17, 2013
What an amazing Bed and Breakfast. My husband and I have stayed in Bed and Breakfast Inn's all over the country and the Stone Yancey House has to be one of the best. The home is beautiful and the rooms are large, comfortable and extremely clean. We had breakfast there two mornings and the food was phenomenal!! The owners of the home are very friendly and they pay extra close attention to detail. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be returning.
4.8 on April 30, 2013
The Stone-Yancey House was a beautifully restored 1880s home in Liberty, MO. The hosts are engaging, friendly--without being intrusive, and helpful guides for the area. The comfort of the rooms, beauty of the furnishings and good food were beyond my expectations. If you go to Liberty, MO stay here.
4.6 on April 08, 2013
Just a wonderful over all experience! Service and host attention was GREAT! Food was very delicious! Rooms just Beautiful! and the entire place was spotless! Lovely romantic get-away or solo relaxing retreat. Highly recommend it, I loved being pampered by Carolyn :) Will be stay there away on a future get away.
5 on March 05, 2013
This was, quite simply, the best accommodation at which I've ever stayed. The owners are extremely hospitable. Every detail has been carefully considered. The breakfasts are out-of-this-world. I would most highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone travelling to Missouri. I am looking forward to returning.
5 on December 25, 2012
Great place, comfortable beds, hot water or coffee in the hall an hour before breakfast. the owners are very friendly and know the area very well. Plan to stay there again.
5 on November 19, 2012
This was, by far, the best B&B I have yet visited. All was absolutely flawless. I definitely hope to return.
5 on October 18, 2012
Best B & B ever! The Stone-Yancey was even better than the pictures. Beyond clean exceptionaly beautiful rooms, superb breakfast, outstanding decor. Carolyn & Steve were the perfect host and historians. No doubt we will return! Kathy & Mike M
5 on August 30, 2012
Both hosts gave great information on the home and on local eateries. The food was better than any other B&B I've been to and the room was very comfortable. Excellent purchase!
5 on July 29, 2012
Carolyn and Steve are wonderful hosts. The house is beautiful and sparkling clean. Our breakfast was wonderful, fresh fruit, muffins and ham and egg pie with hashbrown crust. Yum! We stayed in the Stone Room and were very happy with both the room and entire stay. Thank you Steve & Carolyn for your wonderful hospitality!
5 on July 10, 2012
Hosts obviously enjoy what they are doing. Repeat visit by husband and first time for wife. NEVER been to a cleaner B&B, every nock and corner sparkled. Great food too. On permanent stay again list.
5 on February 26, 2012
This is one of the best B&B's we've stayed at!! Kudo's to Carolyn & Steve for their outstanding hospitality, attention to detail, and the food is top notch. The house has great character, comfortable, to wake up Sunday morning to the aroma of cinnamon rolls....
5 on December 05, 2011
My husband and I very much enjoyed the inviting atmosphere and accomodations. Steve & Carolyn were wonderful hosts. They were so willing to answer all our questions about the area and nice places to dine. We'll be back again!!
4.4 on November 28, 2011
Carolyn was so warm and friendly, even though we checked in after 1030pm, she was there at the door to greet us, gracioulsy welcome us to her home and escorted us to our room. turned on the fire place and made us feel welcome. the entire facility is beautiful. i ate the best cranberry- orange scones EVER. if only the spa tub had been a tad larger. we can't wait to go back
4.8 on November 26, 2011
We chose Stone-Yancey because of the convenience to our daughter's school (William Jewell). We continue to choose it because it is a beuatiful place, very relaxing, and is superbly managed. The atmostphere is all to be hoped for in the best of B&Bs, the breakfast is EXCELLENT, and all guest amenities are top notch. Wether you are in town for William Jewell, historic Liberty, or just traveling through, this is the place to stay in the greater Kansas City area.
4.8 on September 20, 2011
Enjoyed the stay. My wife absolutly loved everypart of it. I think I would of enjoyed it more if I was in another room and didn't have to walk through 3 doors to get to the restroom in the middle of the night. The innkeepers were extremely nice and caring. Even waited around all afternoon so we could come back and get my wifes roses we forgot. Carolyn went all out breakfast. It was a lot more fancy then me and my wife are used to. I was expecting like some cereal and toast and maybe a small omellette. Carolyn defintaly went beyond our expectations unfortunatly I don't like fruit and and every part of the meal had fruit... but my wife loved it. B&B's I found arn't quite my thing nothing to do with the Stone-Yancy house, all to do with my own preferences. My wife would definatly like to return. Thank you for all the courtesy, service, privacy and everything else that made it a great night.
3.8 on September 02, 2011
The innkeepers were accomodating, the house spotlessly clean, the room gorgeous, but wow, was it loud. I am not an early riser, and the hallway and dining room was exceedingly noisy. A rug or carpet in the hallway and a closed door on the dining room would solve this. I would go back, I really liked it, but I hope they make some changes.
We’re pleased that you liked our B&B and that you would come back! We’re sorry that you felt it was noisy, however. We do have area rugs in all rooms and hallways and a carpet runner on the stairs, and yes, the dining room actually does have a door. We knew that you were not going to have breakfast, and we even offered you a discount for that, but we weren’t aware that you wanted to sleep through our breakfast serving time. Since we were full that night, we had other guests who were up and about and getting ready for breakfast at 9am, and since this is an historic home, the floors do creak a bit! And there was conversation during breakfast from 9am to 10am. The dining room is on a different floor and the opposite side of the house from the room you were in, so we’ve never had any issues with noise being a problem for guests in that room. But if you had let us know that you wanted to sleep late, we would have happily closed the door to the dining room in order to make the rest of the house as quiet as possible. Regarding your review, I'm wondering about your rating for dining - I'm not sure why you rated it low, as you did not eat any meals here at our inn.
- Carolyn Hatcher (innkeeper)

We stayed two nights and the B&B was exceptional. Our room was beautifully decorated and was warm and welcoming.The breakfasts were the best we have experienced at a B&B. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful. We hope to return to the Stone-Yancy again!
4.6 on April 09, 2011
My wife and I stayed here 3 nights in April 2008 while on vacation. Carolyn and Steve are great hosts. They are very knowledgeable of the surrounding area and helpful. Our original plan consisted of mostly visiting President Truman related sights but through conversation they brought up the WWI museum in Kansas City which we ended up visiting and thoroughly enjoying. Our room was good and the breakfast was top notch. I will return as a guest if I happen to be in the neighborhood again. I definitely recommend The Stone-Yancey House.

We've stayed at the Stone-Yancy three times and always found it enjoyable. John Cartwright

We stayed at the Stone-Yancey House over Christmas. It was a wonderful experience. The room was huge and very comfortable. The bed was so comfortable it was hard to get up. Carolyn and Steve were so friendly. We really enjoyed our stay.
5 on November 15, 2010
Everything about this B&B was fascinating and classy. There were delicious and unique breakfasts served daily and the owners were very hospitable. Enough good things cannot be said about my stay- beautiful rooms, beautiful atmosphere, wonderful service.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this place!! Wonderful!! I woke up feeling like I was at my Grandmothers, the smell of breakfast wafting up the stairs. I will stay here again!!

4.6 on July 06, 2010
The cleanliness of this B & B was beyond belief. And the friendly customer service not to mention the breakfast that was served was beyond my expectations. We've stayed at 3 Bed & Breakfasts in the last three years and this one was by far the most clean and that rates very very high in my book.
5 on June 10, 2010
Steve and Carolyn were the most gracious hosts. We arrived much, much later than we wanted due to traffic delays but they were right there at the door when we arrived. They were wonderful to visit with throughout our stay. The home was immaculate, and very tastefully decorated. Everything was wonderful and comfortable and our time there flew by way too fast! We wished we would have had more time there. Anyone who stays at the Stone-Yancy Home will not be dissappointed, doesn't matter if its for business or pleasure! We loved it and hope to be able to go back again sometime!

Caroline and Steve were excellent hosts and their breakfast was truly exceptional.

Beautiful Inn, welcoming attentive service, custom made gourmet breakfast. Lovely and charming period decor with all the modern amenities you would ever want, including wireless internet and current movies, many TV channel choices and coffee outside my door. So close to William Jewell College that my daughter walked there to meet me and they gave me a discount because there was a college event. It was all marvelous!
4.6 on February 17, 2010
This little bed and breakfast is a hidden gem in Liberty. It is charming and romantic, the owners are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had, and the table was absolutely gorgeous with a Valentine's Day theme. We plan to return and spend our anniversary at the Stone-Yancey. (I can hardly wait!)

You won't find a better B&B . Carolyn and Steve know how to treat their guests. Carolyn is a great cook and she makes sure you do not go hungry. And this is one of the cleanest B&B you will find. You will be very pleased with your stay.

If you want to stay somewhere that is cozy, clean, and the hospitality is top notch--stay at Stone-Yancey. This is one of many that we have stayed at, and so I can say that it is rated in the outstanding arena with all confidence. The food is wonderful, the attentiveness to the guests is superior and the beds are great!! We love it here and will continue to share this treasure and return ourselves!!
5 on January 13, 2009
Stone-Yancey House is one of the very best of the b&b's that we have ever stayed. When looking on line to book a b&b I remembered noticing the house while driving by on a motorcycle ride thru Liberty, Missouri. I am letting my sister know about this b&b since she has stayed at a few that were not very good so that way she will have a great memory. We will returned to The Stone-Yancey House and Carolyn and Steve then will know how much we liked their b&b. Relaxed, Ed & Joni Cosgrove
5 on November 21, 2008
We had a wonderful two-night visit in Liberty, MO in the homey yet elegant Stone-Yancey House. Carolyn and Steve thought of everything to provide us with a comfortable stay. They are interested in genealogy and directed us to several local resources. Breakfast was hearty and scrumptous. Carolyn bakes delicious scones, cinnamon bread, and pumpkin bars. We really hated to leave,

We have stayed in numerious Bed and Breakfast operations. The antiques, meticulous attention to detail and cleanliness was outstanding. The breakfast and snacks were Four Star. Pam and Dan

The home has been thoroughly and impressively restored. It is impeccably maintained. The owners are unbelievably gracious, friendly and thoughtful. The food is very delicious and enjoyable and customized to each guest's tastes and dietary restrictions. The home is in an excellent location – a small town with easy access to the big city of Kansas City.
5 on August 18, 2008
A fantastic property,lovingly restored and maintained. Much of the original woodwork and hardware remains, thoughtfully uncovered and preserved, the tiled fireplace in the parlor is spectacular. Period pieces abound that give the feel of visiting a close relatives home. The rooms and appointments are period correct with subtle modern conveniences. Very warm and friendly. The Hatchers are wonderful hosts and the food was excellent. A real treat and a great value. Highly recommended.
5 on July 22, 2008
We try to do something special for our anniversary on the 4th of July every year.We couldn't have picked a better place! It was lovely, and the owners were so nice--we felt more like we were staying with relatives or really good friends! The house was built in 1889, and they have decorated it beautifully. Our bedroom and bath was luxurious. We felt so pampered and spoiled! Not only did they fix us a feast for breakfast, but desert in the evening when we got back from dinner! If you ever have a chance to go through Kansas City, go visit the Stone-Yancey House. You won't be sorry.
4.8 on July 07, 2008
Our stay at the Stone-Yancey was wonderful. The room we stayed in was huge. Steve and Carolyn have worked very hard and it showed in every detail of our stay. I highly recommend the Stone-Yancey Bed and Breakfast.

My husband and I stayed at Stone-Yancey House for a memorable weekend when my daughter was being honored with a prestigious scholarship at the neighboring college. Our experience at Stone Yancey was that it was us who were being "honored". We were treated like royalty immediately upon our arrival. Carolyn, the Inn Keeper, actually met us at the door, having heard us drive up the driveway. It was like a Mom greeting her kids as they arrived home for spring break. She was so warm and hospitable, it was impossible to feel like strangers. She invited us into the parlor, offered us cold beverages in crystal glasses and homemade cookies and then as we enjoyed the refreshments, she shared the story of her historic home and the renevations with much pride and animation. The house is lovingly restored with tasteful period furniture. Very beautiful and comfortable. We had the suite with a old fashioned claw footed bathtub that doubled as a jacuzzi. The next morning, we were served a lavous homecooked breakfast by both Carolym and her husband on the royal china that was so beautifully displayed in the 19th century dining room. We look forward to another excuse to enjoy the gracious hospitality and beautiful setting of the Stone- Yancey House.

Will definitely return, hopefully many many times in the future.

We have stayed in many B&B’s in MO and KS area, and The Stone-Yancey House is truly one of top choices we have ever been. We will definitely recommend the SYH to our friends and families. The house is beautiful, exquisite charming, and very European. We are impressed with the Withers Room – luxury decoration, spacious bath room and over size shower head. We enjoy the breakfast for just us, not to mention the gorgeous china set and table setting, and, of course, the desert was very delicious.
5 on March 12, 2008
My daughter and I recently stayed at the Stone-Yancey House while on a college visit. The innkeepers, Carolyn and Steve, could not have been nicer. The breakfast was outstanding. I was full all day. A nice touch was a homemade dessert in the evening. I would definately return.
4.6 on March 11, 2008
Wow! Carolyn and Steve are the most gracious and helpful hosts you could possibly imagine; help with heavy luggage, Carolyn's wonderful and plentiful food, directions, printing out boarding pases. . . you name it. Stone Yancy House is a beautifully restored Queen Anne home with huge, clean, comfortable period-decorated rooms with discreet modern amenities such as WiFi and jacuzzi claw-foot tubs and lots of TLC from the owners. This will be the only place I stay when coming back to this part of Missouri. Very much well worth the extra money and the small extra drive.
4.8 on February 21, 2008
We were welcomed with warmth by the hosts and hot cider. The extras, especially the food, were outstanding. The antique furnishings fit the house and rooms perfectly.
