Great Place

5 on September 08, 2016

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.

Great place and hosts

4.8 on August 23, 2016

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.

Excellent B & B

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.

Relaxed and Pampered

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!

Wonderful Anniversary!

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 Star B&B

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

Great getaway close to KC!

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.

Best B&B We've Seen

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.

Wonderful time

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.
