Midtown 1890 Queen Anne, Beige Room

House - Private room · Harrison St, Kansas City, MO 64109, United States

A busy house full invites you to jump into a real Kansas City experience. A walkable area, easy access to bus lines, right in the heart of it all. Enjoy great restaurants nearby or cook on our 6 burner gourmet's stove. We have fiber speed internet.

The Space

This downstairs room is furnished with unique vintage and antique furnishings and original art. Due to popular demand, sleeping arrangements are a twin bed and trundle, and a love seat with pull out twin. This accommodates up to 3 comfortably. The beds have brand-new Sealy mattresses from Costco and brand-new linens, 325tc organic cotton from Target. Shared bathroom is down the hall and fitted with the original 19th century cast iron clawfoot tub. Need Kitchen and Laundry? Make yourself at home.

Large screen TV on the 2nd floor sitting room, right up the main stairs. Wii with Rock Band as well as a dozen other games appropriate for a range of ages, and Netflix streaming via the Wii. Chairs on the porch are fantastic in the afternoon for watching butterflies on the butterfly bush. Hula Hoops available for creative workouts. In summer months, an above ground chest deep exercise pool is available for cooling off or working out.

We are a large family that loves to open our home and meet new friends. In the morning we brew the finest Free Trade, locally roasted coffees. At your request, we can serve up espresso, fresh laid eggs, and Belgian waffles. A glass of wine or beer may be offered in the evening-- let me know if you would like me to reserve, during your stay, a tour of our local Boulevard Brewery.

Our house and street are children and family friendly. Some pets could be accommodated with negotiation (email hidden) cash pet fee on arrival, but we do have cats and a small Bichon-Cockapoo puppy on the premises. They've done fine with overnight pet guests in the past. Dogs should have a crate for overnight-we can arrange to rent one if that is helpful.

Our street is a registered historic district, 1 1/2 block from the busline that takes you right to UMKC/Rockhurst to the south or downtown to City Hall and the Convention Center. We're within a healthy walking distance to Hospital Hill, Crown Center, Westport, KCAI, several art museums, Crossroads District, Jazz District and the Plaza. You may want to try out Z's bakery or Texas Tom's around the corner or go a little further to Haus, You Say Tomato, Succotash or Cafe Gratitude. Please see the guide I've created.

WIFI included. No smoking in the house or within 20 feet of doors or windows, please. Ample lighted parking is available on our one-way street.

Guest Access

Laundry including product, two shared bathrooms. Porches and gardens. Above ground pool. Bicycles and helmets. The only place "off limits" is the third floor- that is our daughters' domain.

Interaction with Guests

We live in this house. We love to have you join us, but we respect your boundaries and comfort level. It's ok to ask for rides, to join us for meals, and to play board games or watch movies with us. Or not. Your choice.

The Neighborhood

I love the beautiful buildings with fine details restored. Some of the neighbors have amazing gardens. I find the "run down" areas curiously fascinating, looking for clues as to what once was. People are generally friendly. Can't-miss the Nelson-Atkins museum (always free!), the WWI memorial (free) and museum (totally worth the $).

Getting around

Just one block east and south are stops for the Troost Max and the 54, which will take you right to the Main Max. Either bus will take you to the convention center downtown. B-cycle hourly rental stations are up the Main Max line.

This is really going to be more like a Hostel experience, a home-share.

  • Amy and her Family were great to stay with! They made me part of the family while I was there which was especially nice over the holiday season while my husband and I were away from each other. Amy made an extra effort to make sure I was comfortable and safe since I was pregnant with twins during my stay, even going as far as to wake up at 5:30 am to walk me out to my car to make sure I didn't slip on any ice. The rooms were cozy with everything you could need and I never had trouble getting into the bathroom or using the laundry/kitchen facilities. There was always something going on in the house which provided for some good entertainment and conversation when I got home from the hospital! They were also very welcoming to my husband when he was able to stay for a few days. It truly was an awesome experience and I would recommend staying with the Jone's to anyone.

  • It's a busy house, and wonderful hosts, good night's sleep and wonderful friends and neighbors. I make a point to stay here any time I travel to KC now, 2-3 times a year.
    Folks like Amy is why Air BNB is awesome.

    October 2013
  • Great stay that provided exactly what I needed. Would've been even better if I hadn't been entirely focused on work the whole time because this is a great family that made me feel completely at home within the first 10 minutes! Would definitely stay here again.

    October 2013
  • Appreciated that we were able to make a last minute reservation. Amy responded immediately. Family is very friendly and the home is beautiful.

    August 2013
  • After a last minute decision to stay in Kansas City, Amy was kind enough to host my two friends and I for the 4th of July. We absolutely adored her house, kids, husband and pets (especially the adorable puppy Maya). She gave us some fantastic recommendations of neighborhoods to check out, where to watch fireworks and delicious KC bbq! We weren't sure what to expect out of Kansas City, but Amy made our stay wonderful. We hope to cross paths once again!

    July 2013
  • I felt right at home when i stayed with Amy. I'll be visiting KC for a second time and I can't wait to stay here again.

    January 2013
  • I had a good stay at her place. I did not have much of interaction with Amy because I was out most of the day, but she was nice those few moments we chatted. She offered me coffee to-go. Her sons were friendly and helpful.

    I highly suggest doing some research about level of safety in that neighborhood; I did not.

    Response from Amy:

    I am sorry, Jonah, if you felt uncomfortable in this neighborhood-this is something you could have alerted me to when you arrived. The level of safety here is on par with any other large city. Our family is quite comfortable here: my own children take the routes you took around town. I assure you and anyone else that normal travel precautions will get you by.

  • Amy was a very friendly and kind host. I loved her historic home!

    December 2012
  • I stayed a full month with Amy and her wonderful family while I worked at a local hospital. The house was comfortable and everyone was very friendly. I particularly enjoyed the holiday decorations towards the end of my stay!

    December 2012
  • Amy and her family were awesome!
    I felt like living with an adopted family for a long weekend in all of the best ways.
    I was looking for a place to stay between conferences and ended meeting and connecting with people I suspect may well become great, long terms friends.

About
My man is an acoustic engineer and sound system designer. We have 7 children who keep me too busy to want to find work outside my house. I love having people around, and my man insisted on buying a gigantic house when we moved here from Austin. SO-- I have been hosting guests in my home since 2010. I have also had boarding university ESL students, interns, and traveling artists. The house is busy; we have a blast. The money we earn through AirBnb helps maintain this grand old historic home and funds the extracurriculars for the kids. Our motto? This is a safe house- here, you are safe to try new things and be who you are. Also? Guests, like fish, start to stink after 3 days... but family is forever. You decide who you are.
