My home is located in a quiet, tree lined, neighborhood. The guest room & adjoining bath with shower and jacuzzi tub will be exclusively yours during your stay. A simple breakfast on the deck or in the newly remodeled kitchen is included. Museums,restaurants & shops are all nearby.

The space

It's a big, open and airy house filled with art.
Much of it created by my late husband who taught at the KC Art Institute for 40 years.

Use of kitchen for breakfast and common areas like dining room & living room. Can arrange to use washer & dryer. Off street parking in driveway (just need to co-ordinate moving vehicles in and out). Also plenty of street parking.

Mostly at breakfast time and occasionally in the evening. I am always available by phone if questions arise .

Lots of trees, beautiful old houses, walking and biking path to neighborhood, family owned shops and restaurants. Two of KC's major Art Museums nearby. A huge park with jogging trails, tennis courts , picnic area, play ground, pond, and rose garden .

Two blocks down the hill is the bus stop for easy access to points of interest downtown; including the new performing arts center, city (farmers) market, art galleries, music venues, convention center, etc.

Please note that I have a resident kitty. Bella is very friendly and playful, but in case you are highly allergic you may want to know.

Katherin was a perceptive hostess. Breakfasts were a delicious delight and she was more than happy to share whatever I needed. She has the knowledge to help one explore KC if they are new to the area but I enjoyed coming and going and mostly being with my daughter's family. Still, she provided a relaxing respite and made me feel very comfortable in her home. Soooo much more satisfying than a hotel stay!

Communication was easy and clear. The home and room were clean, comfortable and inviting. Breakfast was delicious and nourishing. The best part was our host. Katherine gave us spot on tips for events, restaurants and sights. She knew the inside scoop on the best art walks and made our visit memorable. Such a gracious hostess. Definitely a place we will revisit!

Kathrin's home is so comfortable and peaceful! Her cat, Bella, was so friendly and kept us company during our stay. Kathrin herself is a very good conversationalist and has a lot of good tips for great places in KC! We regally enjoyed our time in her home and would highly recommend it to other travelers!

Kathrin puts the 'nB' in airBnB in a way like no other. She ensured a great start to the day with both her own cooking and local treats, sharing conversation and a pot of tea each day. Easy come-n-go, comfy bed, plenty of space, nice bathroom with amenities, a neat classic well-lived and well-loved home sprinkled with art and a cool cat in a peaceful green neighborhood near the plaza district. You will be delighted to guest here.

Kathrin's home is lovely, and she was a welcoming and gracious host. I was in town for a conference and the location was ideal, and I really enjoyed getting to chat with Kathrin in the mornings over breakfast and in the evenings over a glass of wine. A wonderful visit!

Very cordial and congenial. Very instructive and helpful in identifying good restaurants, sights and museums. Great central location, in a quiet residential suburb. Perfect for dropping down to the Country Club Plaza and/or downtown.
