The Cottages



Welcome to The Cottages!
Here at The Cottages, we have three unique properties available for guests. We are still in the process of renovations, but here is a rundown of what will be available and when…
  • 50’s Glamping in the City – Intended for an individual or a couple, this 1956 Flying Cloud Airstream will be available by March 2018. Find yourself transported back to poodle skirts and the dawn of rock ‘n roll in this retro RV. Complete with a king-size bed, galley (including original refrigerator), and dinette. You can enjoy the sounds of the city, while remaining secluded in your own private campground, complete with a covered deck, bbq, and access to a firepit.
  • The Cottage West – A 900 square foot bungalow, with two bedrooms, one bath, and a dormer attic is an artist/writer’s retreat. Enjoy coffee on the enclosed back deck, bathe in the cast iron bathtub with a hand-laid penny floor, and enjoy learning about the history of Historic Northeast from the small library in the living room. A fully stocked kitchen as well as laundry facilities awaits you. This property will be available for rent in Fall 2018.
  • The Cottage East – This three bedroom, two bath home was built in 1895. It includes an English courtyard in back, a full kitchen and laundry facilities, and two covered decks for enjoying the weather. This property will open for business in 2019.


Here we believe in simple comforts – comfortable beds await you along with fully functioning kitchens and laundry facilities- warm, inviting colors, and eclectic art. Cottage East is decorated in an English cottage style that extends to the gardens in front and back, welcoming guests to their home away from home as they make themselves comfortable in one of the three bedrooms, a full kitchen, and two full bathrooms (with access to laundry as well).
Traveling with children? The Cottage East has space for 6-8 guests at a time! The Cottage West can sleep 4-6 guests comfortably in its two bedrooms and the dormer attic space which accommodates two additional twin beds in a delightful space above the rest of the house.


Inspired by the art I love to create and the books I have written, The Cottages are a pleasant place to stay, in close proximity to highways, just twenty minutes from the Kansas City International Airport, and just five minutes from the convention center, downtown Kansas City, and Crown Center.


The Cottage West was built in 1910 and is located in Historic Northeast, home to some of Kansas City’s first residential neighborhoods. This lovely two bedroom, one bath bungalow has street parking, sleeps up to six (two per bedroom plus a sleeper sofa) and has a full kitchen and laundry facilities. The Cottage East was built in 1895 and has three bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen and laundry facilities and sleeps up to eight.


Visitors to the Cottage West will have the opportunity to learn about the neighborhood’s unique history through various guidebooks and newspaper clippings, enjoy the artwork throughout the house, and keep connected with free wi-fi. We honor the past while keeping our feet firmly in the present’s creature comforts.
The Cottage West will also be available for writers’ retreats and small class groups.

It was so overgrown, you could hardly tell there was a house there!

Into a welcoming retreat while you are visiting our fair city.
More coming soon!
