Uncommon hideaway

5 on August 01, 2017

We were looking for a restful sleep and good start on a new travel day. The Hiding Place met our expectations completely and more. We luxuriated in the serenity and lovely appointments of this peaceful home, an unexpected gem in an urban setting close to the I-70 interchange. Our host was friendly but not obtrusive. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable in every detail. The bathroom was beautiful to the eyes, spacious and immaculate. The on-site pool immediately got my wife's attention, and breakfast was served in an airy atrium with exposure to the freshness of the morning and the cardinal songs. For a peaceful, restorative night, choose the Hiding Place.

Second Visit for Anniversary

5 on May 04, 2017

We stayed here five years ago for our honeymoon for a whole week. It was wonderful then, and this weekend we got the chance to visit again, this time for just one night, to celebrate our anniversary. The price has increased since our last stay, but that's to be expected - it was awhile ago! I loved that we had the whole place to ourselves since we were the only guests that night. The complimentary tea service in the kitchen is delicious and so satisfying. The breakfast of ham, eggs, a lemon muffin, a banana dish, and OF COURSE tea was delicious and filling. Basically we love the Terrace Avenue Inn! I wish we could have stayed longer this time!

Love. Love. Love.

Al & Brenda wrap you in charm & comfort the moment one pulls in front of their Terrace Ave B&B. It's a cozy, lovely home from the outside in, and the little tea shop you walk through to climb a sort flight of stairs is delightful. Once upstairs, we were given keys to the Terrace Room, our favorite. The private bathroom is beautifully appointwd, and the private balcony porch off this bedroom is wonderful. I didn't give an outstanding rating for cleanliness, only because a carpet stain & bedspread stain kind of threw me. But they weren't awful, so if that kind of yhing doesn't bother you, then you will love the king bed & quiet comfort of the decor.

Perfect for a nearby wedding reception, beautiful home

The room was lovely and the breakfast was very nice. Absolutely perfect for us to stay while attending a wedding reception nearby. Thanks for your hospitality!

A wonderful stay!

5 on October 05, 2016

We were well taken care of during our recent stay at the Inn! We stayed in the Cottage Nook suite and found it to be very comfortable! We encountered Megan and Sarah during our stay and they were both very friendly. Breakfast was tasty and the Tea Shop was a delightful bonus! Highly recommend!

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you had a wonderful time at our bed and breakfast! Thank you for sharing your experience here.

Lovely Stay

We loved being at Terrace Inn. The room was perfect, the porch was a lovely spot to relax, and the tea shop downstairs was great fun to shop in. We enjoyed it!

Wonderful accomodations!

4.4 on August 06, 2016

Al and Brenda invited us into a new world of tea drinking - every imaginable flavor. My daughter and I watched movies and sipped tea each night. If you like a continental breakfast, something on the lighter side (i.e. Parfait & scones or Croissant breakfast sandwich & fruit cup)), this is a wonderful place to stay. I actually prefer it, but rated 2 because it is not what I have experienced at any other B&B.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review. Your feedback is so appreciated. Let us know if you need any tea - and please come back again!!!

Great place to stay and relax

5 on June 02, 2016

Came here for a day away from the toddler and life. Was a nice relaxing place. Al was very polite and helpful with anything that was requested. We stayed in the suite and it was well worth it comfy bed, huge shower, jacuzzi and a private balcony. Breakfast in the morning was really good too! They have all kinds of tea to drink in the morning too and if you're not a tea drink they will make you some coffee by request. I would definitely stay here again!

The Scones are wonderful!!!

The room was very comfortable, loved having access to the kitchen.

What an awesome Bed and Breakfast!!!

4.8 on October 14, 2015

My wife and I were married this last Saturday, and had the good fortune of staying in the Terrace Suite which was lavish, clean and beautiful! The innkeepers were so kind and helpful, and even though we had a wedding smack in the middle of the day, they allowed me to come pick up my key and check in early! The staff are so accommodating! The breakfast served to us in the morning was delicious as well! We felt like honored guests at this inn, and are already planning to return!

Innkeeper Response
We are so excited you chose us for your wedding weekend! So glad your day was beautiful, too. All the best to you both and please come back and stay for your anniversary!

Fabulous anniversary stay!

5 on April 22, 2015

We stayed 2 nights in the Cottage Nook for our 10th anniversary. We loved the inn and how comfortable the bed was. The room was on the first floor with its own entrance. Brenda and Al were wonderful; they set out a nice array of teas from the tea shop for us to try during our stay. If we're in the area again, we'll definitely stay here.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so happy your stay was comfortable and relaxing. We hope you will be able to come back and enjoy our teas and inn!

Stay in the Terrace suite

4.6 on March 01, 2015

We stayed in the Terrace suite for Valentines weekend. We loved the room! The bed was so comfortable! Our only recommendation would be for a little loveseat for lounging. The balcony was beautiful and we would have sat out there if the weather had been warmer. Al was a great host and we really Enjoyed talking with him! We loved the teas and being able to try so many was wonderful! We'd definitely come back again!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate your words are so happy your special weekend was wonderful! We will look forward to having you come back for another getaway. Also, that is a great idea about the loveseat - that would be a wonderful addition. Glad you mentioned it to us!

Great for a Kansas City Stay-cation!

5 on December 17, 2014

We stayed two nights in the Terrace Suite at The Terrace Avenue Inn for a birthday surprise. It was very relaxing and peaceful. The innkeepers are wonderful and genuinely care about your experience while staying there. The tea is great and breakfast each morning is worth waking up for! It is in a lovely location, close to the historic downtown buildings and also close to all the shopping and area restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay in Liberty. Todd and Jennifer

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Todd and Jennifer for your kind review! We are glad you had a relaxing getaway and enjoyed Liberty. Please come back again soon!

First time B&B stay

4.8 on October 05, 2014

We stayed here for our 3 year anniversary and weren't sure what to expect as we have never been to a bed and breakfast before. Brenda and Al exceeded our expectations. Their hospitality was amazing and the home was beautiful. Al offered lots of suggestions of things to do in the area for entertainment. Our room was beautiful and the beds are AMAZING. Brenda's homemade scones were great as was the tea they served us. I would definitely recommend this place for a stay and we will be back to experience the other rooms in the house.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review!! We were honored to have you choose our Inn for your 3 year wedding celebration. I know Al and Brenda appreciated you both and we do hope you will come back again!!

5 on July 22, 2014

We needed a place to get away after our oldest daughter got married and this B&B was perfect!!! Al and Brenda were the nicest Inn Keepers and everything from check-in to check-out was hassle-free. The breakfast each morning was delicious and the perfect amount (and visiting with Brenda was an added Bonus). The bed in the Terrace Suite was the most comfortable I've ever slept in! We stayed in our room almost the entire first day of our stay--it was that cozy. Having access to the kitchen also was a nice feature. Will for sure stay there again. Thanks so much!

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your feedback so much! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. We are so happy the suite provided a relaxing place to just get away after such a momentous event in your family! Please come back again soon. Thank you!

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

5 on July 31, 2012

My wife found Terrace Avenue Inn in 2010 and we stayed during the first part of our vacation that took us through several states and four Bed and Breakfasts. Terrace Avenue Inn spoiled us on what to expect at the other stops. We enjoyed it so much we made plans in 2011 to meet friends there for a few days on our next vacation. Now we are back from visiting again in 2012 and already making plans on returning this Fall. Brenda is a gracious host and prepares a delicious breakfast. We have come to think of Brenda, Al, Salena and Sarah as friends rather than “the innkeepers.” If you like, the conversation is easy and friendly. We enjoy the tea and frequently order during the year. We have stayed in each of the three rooms and have enjoyed them all but the Terrace Room Suite is a real treat. In addition to the things to do and see in Liberty the Inn’s location makes it easy for being able to make quick trips to Independence for the Truman Library and home, Kansas City for tons of stuff including the very best military museum I have seen - the National WW I Museum at Liberty Memorial, Kearney for Jessie James’ farm, Jamesport for Amish furniture and on and on. The Terrace Avenue Inn honestly gets our highest recommendation.

A true respite

4.8 on August 10, 2011

Wonderful accommodations and the fact it is part of a tea shop makes it even more charming. A great place for my wife and I to spend our first anniversary. Brenda was friendly but didn't push conversation. She allowed us to chat as much or as little as we wanted to with her.

Wonderful Getaway

5 on July 31, 2011

My husband and I have stayed here twice, once last year and then this year. It's becoming an annual tradition when we visit family here. It's always relaxing and wonderful. We always book the king-size bed room with the balcony and are never disappointed. Brenda is super nice and will help recommend various teas if you're a novice, like me. She's actually getting me into teas now! The place is so relaxing and quiet, the food is delicious, especially the chocolate-chip scones! We will definitely be back for great atmosphere and such a nice place to unwind after a busy day.

Great Stay in Liberty Missouri

5 on July 19, 2011

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay here in Liberty, Missouri. The room was nicely decorated, and we enjoyed sitting out on the porch later that evening. The close proximity to the historic downtown also added to the pleasant atmosphere, as did the many varieties of luxurious teas which could be sampled for breakfast. A great place to stay and relax for a day or two!


5 on July 18, 2011

Stayed here for two nights in the Terrace suite. It was clean and beautiful. I loved the porch. We had a great trip and will be back.

Exceptional value, wonderful stay!

4.6 on April 23, 2011

This was a WONDERFUL retreat, exceptional quality and the value was very good (two nights was not much more expensive than one night!). The king bed was incredibly soft, and we loved the jet tub. Set in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood, it was just lovely. The owners were very friendly and the service was great. We LOVED all the teas! The stay was very private and cozy, just absolutely perfect. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful hidden treasure in Liberty!

4.6 on February 01, 2011

I had a recent surgery and decided I needed a little getaway to relax and recuperate. The Terrace Ave Inn was the perfect choice. I loved the fact that there are only 2 rooms so it truly feels private and serene. The Innkeepers (Brenda and Al) were wonderful hosts and truly pampered me during my stay. Their daughter was a sweetheart and took me by the hand and helped me inside when I was having trouble getting around due to icy conditions on the walkway. Brenda brought me my breakfast up to my room for me so that I didn't have to worry about making the trip downstairs or getting dressed for breakfast. I stayed in the Terrace Room and it was gorgeous. The bed is the highlight of the room but the spa caliber bathroom is something to behold. Love the simple, elegant decor and the entire home was lovely. Every inch of this place was immaculate! My breakfast of eggs with ham, homemade scones w/melted butter, fresh bananas w/blueberries and a pot of fabulous raspberry tea was delicious. I felt like a queen during my stay. I happened to be staying here when a blizzard decided to stop by. Even with a severe weather warning Al still braved the elements and made sure to check on me and see to my every need. I will be visiting very often in the future especially when the weather is warmer so that I can enjoy the beautiful enclosed porch. This makes a perfect place to celebrate any special occasion or those times when you want to relax and enjoy a little time away from home. You won't be disappointed!

Beautiful Inn where I was well cared for!

4.6 on January 29, 2011

I traveled to Kansas City for a family funeral and staying at this Inn made it easy to connect with family for activites and things that needed to be done, and it was a really nice respite. There are only two rooms, one large and one small. i had the small room, but the price was right. Breakfast was fabulous every day and the hospitality of the Innkeepers was superb. I would definitely stay again when visiting Kansas City! I picked up some great items in the gift shop, too!

Charming B&B

4.8 on January 26, 2011

Loved our beautiful room. Great value. Will definitely come back!

Very relaxing and comfortable

5 on December 24, 2010

My wife and I stayed at the Terrace Avenue Inn in October as a one night getaway for the two of us. The inn is located on a quiet residential street but is not far from anywhere in Liberty. Our hostess, Brenda, was very nice and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with her. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We typically don't visit the same bed and breakfast more than once, but we will make an exception with The Terrace Avenue Inn.

Fabulous Anniversary Get Away

4.8 on June 29, 2010

What a peaceful and private get away for our anniversary! Loved the private porch and the beautiful surroundings. Breakfast was supurb and the tea was a great treat for tea lovers.

Perfect Way to End Our Wedding Day!

4.0 on June 24, 2010

Al and Brenda were excellent hosts and went out of their way to make sure our wedding night was perfect. They were flexible with our arrival time, as we would be arriving late in the evening after our reception. They also brought out breakfast to our room so we could spend the morning as a married couple, remembering moments from our special wedding day. The room was private, quiet, and comfortable (loved the huge bed!) and the food was excellent. We'll be back! Thanks!

A delightful time!

5 on June 11, 2010

My husband and I had such a wonderful time that we chose to stay an extra day! The king-size bed was extremely comfortable, the jacuzzi relaxing, and the reading chair and lamp were a nice addition. Breakfast was delicious. Brenda & her daughters were so kind and friendly, they made our stay even more special. My favorite was the porch swing on the patio. I felt like a child again, being in a treehouse! The prices are very reasonable particularly if you stay more than one night. If it's relaxation you want, you won't regret staying at the Terrace Avenue Inn.

Gracious Hosts and Relaxing Surroundings

4.4 on May 12, 2010

We spent a weekend at the inn and stayed in the Terrace Room. The room was very comfortable and welcoming. The adjoining porch is an added bonus if the weather is warm enough to enjoy it.

"Perfect get-away"

5 on March 22, 2010

What a lovely home! We felt very welcomed and enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was delicious, including "the best" chocolate chip scones. We hope to visit again.

Relaxing and quiet honeymoon!

4.0 on January 01, 2010

My wife and I stayed at the Terrace Avenue Inn for our honeymoon and we were very impressed with everything. The room was clean with warm lighting, beautiful wood floors, tasteful decorations. The bathroom had a great whirlpool tub, and a really nice rainfall shower. I could be wrong, but I think the floors were heated in the bathroom. The bed was big and fluffy, with a nice down comforter to keep us warm! The breakfast Brenda prepared was delicious. To top it off, Brenda served us tea. We tried a few different kinds and loved them all. We also took time to explore Liberty and really enjoyed our time on the square, had it been warmer we would have walked there since the Inn is so conveniently located. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this to anyone wanting to get away for a quiet weekend.

Perfect Stay at the Terrace Avenue Inn

5 on September 09, 2009

I traveled to Liberty for business and felt right at home at the Inn. The innkeepers are very friendly and professional. This is the cleanest room I've ever stayed in! By far, Brenda's breakfast is the best I've ever had at any B&B. It's home cooked and goes perectly with the many teas she served. I'll be back!

Wonderful Getaway

4.6 on April 14, 2009

My wife and I have stayed at The Terrance Avenue Inn 3 separate times. We have enjoyed our stay each time, finding the house to be perfect for rest and relaxation. The owners are very friendly and hospitable. My wife and I will be staying here many times in the future.
