Our inn offers the perfect setting for weddings, corporate retreats, family reunions, honeymoons, staycations, and other events. The Inn on Crescent Lake offers many options to each guest, but we are certain that everyone who comes will enjoy the opportunity to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.

We loved our first stay at The Inn on Crescent Lake. We loved the personal feel of the B&B, plentiful extras and amenities, and delicious breakfast. As busy parents, we appreciated that there were no kids allowed so we could actually relax during our night away. We are already planning our next trip back!

Mike greeted us upon arrival and our room was very comfortable. It was a very healing historic inn. Monica provided unique tasty breakfasts and sweet afternoon tea time treats. Refreshing pool and romantic paths around the lake. Very serene rooms that were beautifully decorated. Will definitely return and highly recommend this Inn.

We absolutely love the inn on Crescent Lake. We have stayed in the Emerald Rose room twice before, both times for single night stays. This time we had the extra luxury of the garden room, which is very spacious, has a private entrance and a hot tub. Mike is the most wonderful host and we enjoyed visiting with him each time we are there. My husband loves fishing there, both using their small boat and fishing from the bank at the lake. He’s caught fish two out of three times. Although the pool is absolutely lovely, we typically run out of time before we get a chance to use it. Breakfast is excellent, and enjoying the mansion itself and the exquisite grounds always makes us feel like we’ve had a wonderful getaway. Excelsior Springs has many good restaurants and several really cute shops. We enjoyed pizza and a bottle of wine last night at Van Till Family Winery. I won’t be surprised if we stay at the end every three or four months, and are looking forward to staying a couple of nights next time!

A beautiful location for an Adult getaway for Rest, Relaxation & Rejuvenation! Charming, quiet & all small details were met! Mike, Monica & Staff gave us the best quiet time that we needed. Breakfast was amazing. They have all sorts of drinks and snacks available. Mike gave us restaurant suggestion. Plan to make more reservations in the future! We stayed in the Garden Room A++

We loved our stay here! The house is charming with eclectic decor and a unique feel to each room. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, and it's a great place for a couple to relax and unwind. Nice pool, and we also enjoyed the paddle boat ride around the lake- saw otters, turtles, and a beautiful crane!
