This fabulous "builders own home" is set in a stunning acre of trees with a private stream and organic gardens. Just four blocks from I-35, minutes to dwtn KC and south OP.
This is a working urban farm/garden, changing seasonally. It has beautiful private places to sit, relax, read, or work on the wrap-around deck, surrounded by the sites and sounds of nature. It's a hidden gem, making your stay extra comfortable.

The space

The large second story bedroom has it's own private bathroom and loft area. The house is open with large inviting views to the backyard. There are great spaces inside and out to relax and enjoy the beauty while being conveniently located to the Plaza, Westport and southern Johnson County.

We live in a safe urban/suburban neighborhood that has all the amenities of city living and the beauty and privacy of country living.

Guest access

Guests will have access to all the main floor kitchen and living spaces. You are welcome to use the TV in the shared family room.

The amazing wrap-around porch and deck, overlooking the stream and gardens, are the favorite spots for breakfast, meals and late night drinks. You are welcome to explore the vegetable and flower gardens and spend time enjoying the greenhouse (used mostly for hosting outdoor movies and garden parties). We also have a four-season hoop house bursting with salad greens in the winter months. You are welcome to nibble on the many edibles in the garden too!

Private space:
The 3 other second story bedrooms are off limits, as they are our private office and bedroom spaces.

Interaction with guests

We run our businesses from home, so we are flexible and available during your stay.

We are outgoing and welcoming, but also sensitive to your privacy. We ask the same respect to ours as well.

Breakfast: You are welcome to help yourself to what we have available.
I usually have cereal, fruit, granola, yogurt, organic eggs and breads. There is always our very own local raw honey and homemade jams too! I have a large choice of teas, black, green and herbal and great KC Roasterie coffee.

We teach local classes on organic gardening, beekeeping and herbalism from the gardens. So we love to share and learn from our guests too.

We are world travelers and enjoy sharing our lives and passions with others. We look forward to welcoming you to our home!

Other things to note

We are native Johnson Countians and will be able to give you lots of suggestions to make your stay in Kansas City enjoyable. Especially the world famous BBQ joints!

We are "foodies" and have lots of favorite places to suggest if you are looking to eat out.

** If you have a need for a small event space for your family or business while here, the deck and gardens can be rented, with a 2 week advance notice. I am also willing to cater small parties for a price, predetermined per person.

A great neighborhood and setting to unwind after a busy day. Sherri was flexible about access to the house and both her and Larry seem to enjoy their guests. Both were very personable and are good people. Learned quite a bit about organic food and best of all was the fresh honey they shared with us. The yard and landscaping was nice and we saw our first lightning bugs. You have a private room and your own bath which was nice.

Sherri was a wonderful host! She and her husband shared the fruits of their dreamlike farmstead with me during my stay. Sherri even prepared some of my favorite breakfast options. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the gardens, watching the bees and visiting with Sherri. She is so well educated on gardening, herbs and natural living. What a gem!

I can't say enough about Sherri and Larry. We loved it so much we ended up canceling our non-refundable hotel reservation we booked for the last night of our three-night stay so we could extend our stay here another night. They were such gracious, warm and friendly hosts that absolutely made our visit to Kansas a memorable trip. The house is beautiful and charming, as well as the gorgeous backyard and garden. The breakfast they prepared included delicious homegrown blackberries, honey from their beehive, and eggs from their chickens. They provided us with a pack n play for my little one to sleep in and even offered to drop off my husband to a work event he needed to attend so that I could enjoy breakfast with my daughter. I'd definitely stay here again if we visit Kansas again. My daughter loved the awesome public swimming pool close by with all their water slides for all ages. There are a number of delicious restaurants nearby as well. Thanks, Sherri and Larry for everything!

What a wonderful place to enjoy great hospitality! The room and bathroom were very pleasant and nice breakfast including fresh honey from the bee hives out back! Wish I had been able to stay longer and enjoy the beautiful vegetable, herb, berry and flower gardens. Sherri is a great host. Will definitely go back if I need a place to stay in Kansas City again!

Sherri is very hospitable. Her home was a lovely, quiet place to relax with a clean, comfortable room. The proximity to the buzzing downtown Overland Park area was also nice.

My husband and I are outgoing, adventerous and love to live life fully. We own our own businesses. We love to travel and meet new people.
I'm an organic urban gardener and teacher, well connected with the local food movement in KC. Larry is a home builder and beekeeper.
We consider ourselves "foodies". We appreciate and seek out, great, local, healthy food at home and wherever we travel.
Our families have lived in the Kansas City area for several generations. So, we have lots of history and roots here. We love to share the "best" places to eat and visit with those passing through.
When we travel, we stay with other Airbnb hosts and love the rich experiences and relationships that each brings to our trips. As Airbnb hosts, we look forward to sharing our wonderful home with other travelers.
