Midwest Living Review
Chocolate mints from Kansas City’s legendary Christopher Elbow, hot beverages, custom blended coffee and private-label wine are just a few of the thoughtful details awaiting at Oak Street Mansion. This Georgian Revival-style bed-and-breakfast goes way above and beyond beautifully appointed rooms and multicourse breakfasts served on fine china. Guests also enjoy complimentary happy hours and the chance to appreciate incomparable works of art.
Decades in the making, the art collection decorating this gracefully restored home belongs to Dr. Roland and Marcia Sabates and includes original works by Miro, a Remington bronze in the powder room and three-dimensional African art in a gallery near the back entrance. Guests can sleep amid bright, bold wall art in the Cuban Room or beneath soothing paintings in the Impressionists Room. The Jazz Room is full of framed pieces celebrating one of this area’s most renowned musical genres, and individual pieces are up for sale in the Featured Artist Room. Other guest accommodations are done in distinctive themes.
Breakfasts are well-done with fresh fruit, omelets and lemon ricotta pancakes. Though new to the local lodging market, this family-run inn is poised to succeed with premium accommodations and beautiful surroundings. Rates range from $175 to $250.
