“Great B&B”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We chose a stay over point between Dodge City , KS & Branson, MO for the night.
Miss Pat of Twin Mansions is ever so sweet. She took us "room shopping." We chose a bedroom in the White House, a guest cottage. Super hi tech shower with all bells & whistles. We saw a similar one on a home show. Super comfy accommodations. A great town to visit. I was pleasantly surprised. I discovered that AAA book doesn't give a realistic idea of some places. Would definitely stay again! Had breakfast in the other mansion owned by her son Nate.

I am starting a new business in the Fort Scott area and have stayed at Lyon's B&B for 3 weeks in the past 2 months. It is a great place. The food and accommodations are excellent. There are three mansions and a great selection of rooms to fit your needs. As a business person, I greatly appreciate the high tech/high speed internet and access to private conference areas to meet with colleagues. The food for breakfast and lunch are wonderful. The hosts, Pat and Larry Lyons are fantastic and go out of their way to make it a great stay. I like Fort Scott, an historic town that is being revitalized. It has great restaurants, Crooners and a nice bar, Sharkies, that I also recommend. In summary, I travel extensively and have to rate Lyon's as on of my all time favorites. It is perfect for a weekend getaway, a business trip, family reunion, etc.

I was traveling from Branson, Missouri back to Nebraska and stayed in The Cottage. It was comfortable and relaxing. Miss Pat was amazing! She was so friendly and attentive. She was even nice enough to deliver breakfast to The Cottage for me. The food was delicious! I would love to return again someday with my husband and stay for a few days in one of the mansion rooms.

5 of us descended upon the Lyons on Easter Sunday evening and found a huge old house chock-a-block full of photos, gee-gaws, DVDs, magazines, pillows and comfort. Ms. Pat is a gem and her granddaughters are lovely & lively (we enjoyed introducing them to lacrosse). Our rooms were comfy and large, the bathrooms crazy fun - be sure and try the Royal Safari with the steam shower. We ventured downstairs in the a.m. to find a table set for 5 but no one in sight, we waited a minute then poked our heads in the kitchen - nothing. DUH! We were supposed to go next door to the OTHER MANSION! OK, we did that, had a great breakfast from the menu - trout Eggs Benedict was quite hearty and tasty! This mansion is a twin of the other but without all the bric-a-brac, quite interesting to compare them.

There are also trains that run all through the night, my husband and I would wake up, enjoy the rumble and fall back to sleep. If you like simple and understated this is not the B&B for you BUT if you want fun, crazy, kind, comfy and historical this place is perfect.

THANK YOU MS PAT!!

Room Tip: Royal Safari is on an old sleeping porch - lots of room and the bathroom is amazing.

Spend 5 days on a business trip in Fort Scott and this place came highly recommended. I was amazed at the great personal service and the kindness of Ms. Pat (the owner) and her staff. They made me feel at home, I have not stayed at a BB in a very long time and was a bit apprehensive, but this was an amazing experience. I was in Joe's room, on the top floor, the room was huge with a sitting area in front of the fireplace with a big flat screen TV above, a huge king size bed, a sitting area near the window and 2 desks, wood floors and nicely decorated. This was very confortable and enjoyed my stay. They even have a mini refrigerator that they stock daily with sodas and water for your enjoyment. No matter what I needed they were there to help. The mansion is filled with many antiques and Ms. Pat will give you a personal tour. Breakfast was great (it is usually served at 9 am on) but Ms. Pat and her staff accommodated my 7 am starts every morning. You must try the black bean burrito breakfast, it was simply amazing. Thank you Ms. Pat and your staff, you love what you do and it shows, If you are ever in Fort Scott this is the only place you need to consider staying.

Room Tip: Do not book on the internet, but instead call Ms. Pat directly and talk to her about the rooms and w...

Stayed here on business for two nights, wonderful cottage, superb hospitality and genuine friendliness. Having stayed and travelled the globe, invariably in 5 star establishments (Shangri la for example), the sense of something special came with this stay. You don't need concierge services or fancy restaurants, explore the area, support the community and you'll have a far enriching experience than a faceless hotel chain. Good, clean and honest. Travelled from the UK.

Stayed in the "Hideaway" room with my wife and our 6-month-old daughter. It was perfect. The whirlpool tub, giant TV, super accommodating staff, awesome breakfast... just the relaxing stay we were looking for. And the history of this place just almost walks off the walls and grabs you.
