Travelers' Choice
The most romantic getaway in the Kansas City area, this stately and historic bed and breakfast is located in Excelsior Springs, MO, a mere 30 minutes from downtown Kansas City. 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.

Calming atmosphere with beautiful grounds, wonderful food with special touches included. Our hosts were gracious and personable easy to engage and ask questions. The room had everything needed including nice view of the grounds.

Buildings, pool and grounds were very well maintained. Wood work and carpeting seemed recently refurbished. Inn Keepers and staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the bowl of chocolates and mints by the bedside. We stayed in the Emerald Rose room which was nicely decorated. Each room had its own climate control which was important to us. The pool was very well maintained. We didn't have time to use the pedal boats or the fishing boat on the moat "Crescent Lake" that surrounds the manor. Crescent Lake is a large moat that meets recreational needs. Enjoyed the hiking trail to "Kissing Point" with rocking chairs, benches and a hammock along the way! Breakfast was tasty and filling. Would definitely return and will recommend to others.

The rooms were extremely nice along with the service and tranquility. The owners are lovely people who care about everyone that visits there. They go out of their way to make you comfortable along with giving you the privacy that you need to enjoy your stay. If we could give more that 5 stars on all of it including the delicious food, we would. Once you come here, you will want to come back again. Thank you so much for amazing stays at the Inn On Crescent Lake!

My husband and I stayed here two nights this week just to get away for a bit. I didn't even know this B&B existed until someone shared it on facebook. The place is so clean, and the staff are amazingly friendly, informative and want to make sure you have everything you could ever need for your stay. You are served breakfast each morning, either delivered to your room or downstairs in the breakfast room. The meals were so, so good. We stayed in the Crescent room which was really three rooms with the bedroom, bathroom and a room with the jacuzzi tub. My husband enjoyed the massage chair that was by the tub as well. It is so quiet there, and so relaxing. There is also a gorgeous pool, beautiful lake with boats and fishing and a trail to walk. I think the prices are great, especially for all you get. I am definitely going to recommend (and have already) The Inn on Crescent Lake to everyone and I am certain we will be back to stay again sometime. Go and stay... You won't be sorry!

Pictures do not do this place justice. The new owner, Mike, shows incredible hospitality throughout your stay. Upon arrival, you are given a tour of the grounds that include historical info about this lovely mansion. Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are available throughout the day, and chocolates everywhere. We stayed in the Tuscany Suite (pool house). We had direct access to the pool from our room, which was a huge bonus. The room was spacious and clean with a view of the pool and Crescent Lake (which is really more like a pond). Breakfast was delicious. It is plated for you, and each day was a different menu. We do not have allergies, so I cannot speak to that. We enjoyed the walking trail to Kissing Point and spotted multiple deer along the way. There are also peddle boats and small motorized boat to take out on the lake. We also enjoyed a morning hiking at the nearby Watkins Mill State Park. Four mile loop and a small museum about the history of the mill. There was lots of shade on the trail. The area is following all COVID-19 safety precautions at all the stores and restaurants. We loved the escape and felt confident in our own health and safety the entire time. There are only 10 rooms at this Bed & Breakfast, so it is a quiet, romantic hideaway that we will definitely return to visit in the future.
