The guest house is just outstanding. Lee and Shirley are the best host. We had a lovely 2 bedroom one bath with living space to roam around in and not run into each other. Lee fixed us the best breakfast each morning. We left to explore with a wealth of information and places to see. I can imagine why you would want to stay in a hotel. I would always stay at the Union Park Guest House when in the Kansas City or Leavenworth area.
