I just spent the weekend at the Southmoreland with my family to celebrate a wedding (mine, actually!) and I was so sorry to leave. My now-husband and I spent three nights in the Carriage House, which is a lovely and well-appointed suite, separate from the rest of the house. Our room was huge and very comfortable and had a lot of nice little touches, from a jacuzzi, a TV (usually don't see those at B&Bs) and complimentary apples and sherry (I believe all of the rooms had those).
Breakfast was served on the porch or on the deck every morning and it was DELICIOUS. The multi-course breakfasts were all basically gourmet and the portions were very generous. They also served wine and appetizers every evening and had fresh-baked cookies and coffee/tea available every evening from 9-11 pm. Needless to say, I need to go on a diet after my stay at the inn, but I was loving every second of it!
We held our wedding on the back deck and the venue was perfect (the awesome weather didn't hurt). The pretty arbor and flowers on the deck provided a great backdrop and the intimate setting was just what we were looking for. Nancy, the owner, provided lunch for our small group after the ceremony and was very flexible and accommodating to our schedule.
The location can't be beat--you are a short walk to the Art Museum and all of the shops and restaurants on the Plaza. When the weather isn't a million degrees, Kansas City is a great city to walk in, and the Southmoreland acts as a great home base for exploring the city.
The best part of our stay was the hospitality. Mark and Nancy and the rest of the staff were always SUPER friendly and helpful and you could tell that they always had their guests' needs in mind. The little touches like the snack fridge and the fresh cookies were what made this place stand out. The Southmoreland took what could have been a stressful event and made it carefree and picture-perfect.
