Awesome Place, Food, Bed, HOT TUB! and the hosts are one of a kind! Loved it, loved it. Can't wait for another stay at Sunset Acres B and B!


We had a great time last weekend, Saturday night under the rain and stars in the hot tub! Breakfast was so yummy I can still taste the homemade strawberry jam made by Brenda.


I have lost track of how many times we have now stayed at Sunset Acres. Our stay in June was for a family reunion in the area. We rented the whole house for 3 nights. In addition, we hosted a catered BBQ lunch (by Brenda and Bill) pool party for approximately 25 people. Brenda and Bill pulled everything off without a single hitch and helped make wonderful family memories for the entire 3 days of our stay. As always, Sunset Acres is highly recommended for whatever your needs may be. Thanks Bill and Brenda!


Me and a couple girlfriends came to have a relaxing night away from it all. We had a wonderful and relaxing time. The place is so beautiful and quiet, away from the city. Brenda couldn't be more friendly and helpful. They do have pets, but the house is clean and the pets stay away from guests and are not allowed in the guest rooms. I loved it and we are planning a couples weekend, and we will be here!


For those looking for a place to escape to...this is it. Brenda was amazing about taking our last minute reservation. We go to bed and breakfast's for the homey feel and this was it. Don't let the location throw you. Lovely little town with things to do, but for us? There was no reason to leave lol. We plan on coming back a few more times this year. Once to fish, once to swim. But who knows...this might be our new favorite run away from home ...home. Janean


My wife and I visited this bed and breakfast on her 30th birthday with a morning plan to visit Powell Gardens for the day. When we first arrived just after dusk, the house from the outside was not what we expected to visit as we have been to other bed and breakfasts. After parking and looking around from the car; we decided to proceed to the front door. From this point on, the visit was very enjoyable and relaxing. The hostess quickly greeted us at the front door and offered us ice tea and asked if we had any trouble finding the house (no problems on the country roads, thanks to the Garmin). We first enjoyed a nice relaxing sit outside on the deck looking at the pond and listing to the country setting. The basement of the B&B had a pool table, dart board and family room which was a nice touch and was rare for most bed and breakfasts. We enjoyed playing a single game of pool (since we are not very good ie it took a long time) and we played darts for several hours and enjoyed talking about life since our wedding about a year ago. We enjoyed watching a nice movie on the large screen TV together and relaxing on the reclining sofa to conclude the night. Had we brought our swim suits we would of used the swimming pool. The Egyptian Room has a bed with a 2" memory foam bed topper that may be a future purchase for our bed at home, if I can find one as nice as this one was. The hosts were very nice people that make a very nice breakfast. All and all an enjoyable visit. Oh, Powell Gardens was nice too but it was very hot day.


I am about 2 years late on writing this review, but I'm finally getting around to it. I wanted to make sure I let everyone know how much we loved this place. We chose to get married here in May of '09 and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Brenda was very helpful with everything for the wedding and even made all the food (which was DELICIOUS) for a very reasonable price. They were so friendly and accommodating! I have never had a better weekend!! We are hoping to return for our next anniversary. The grounds are beautiful and it is a dream come true for animal lovers! The room was immaculate and unlike previous reviewers, we felt completely comfortable anywhere we went. The breakfast was unbelievable!!! I know how late I am getting to this, but...Thank you Brenda and Bill for making our special weekend so perfect! We cannot express how much it means to us. -Cassondra and Noah

My Girlfriend wanted to get out of the house for her birthday. I chose Sunset acres promarily because we did not have time to travel very far. When we arrived we were pleaseantly surprised. Brenda greeted us, showed us around and we got settled in. 110% hospitality!! We took a couple hours in the hot tub, (too cold for the pool) Breakfast was phenominal!! Great coffee, juice, fresh fruit, and the French Toast... Yeah the French Toast!!!! Out of this world!! We will definatly be back! Top notch sevice, food and cleanliness. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!

Thank you so much for your kind words. I enjoyed meeting you both and look forward to your next stay here at Sunset Acres. Have a great summer and stay safe. Til we meet again!


What do you need in a B&B: a comfortable place to sleep and a great breakfast. Make that breakfast amazing, add a hot tub, incredibly friendly/accommodating host, beautiful grounds and fainting goats - throw in a choir of pond frogs and chirping birds. That makes Sunset Acres B&B a most relaxing way to visit Kansas City and still stay relaxed. Horses and other amenities are available - who had time for all that!! Thanks, Sunset Acres!

Many thanks to you for your time and saying such nice things. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit. Have a great summer!


The setting was peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the turkeys, peacocks, goats, cats, horses and hottub. We do prefer a bathroom within our guest room, instead of in the hallway. The towels smelled sour -- this was our only complaint.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm terribly sorry about the towels. I don't understand how this could be. I would have been have to replace them right away. Should this situation come again please let the Innkeeper know right away.

Thank you for choosing Sunset Acres. We take great pride in knowing you enjoyed your visit! Thank you for taking the time to leave such a sweet review.. Wishing you all the best..


We had never stayed at a B&B until we visited Sunset Acres a few years ago. Since then, we've tried a few others in our travels, but none companre to Sunset Acres! The food is beyond amazing, and it's obvious that Brenda has put a lot of time, expense, and effort into furnishing and decorating the rooms. The grounds are beautiful, too, and there have been many additions since we first visited. The gazebo and hot tub are such nice amenities! Bill obviously spends a lot of time working outside, as does Brenda, I'm sure! My husband surprised me a few days ago by telling me that he'd booked a room there for my birthday. He had also ordered a massage for me, and since it rained during most of our stay, the massage was especially nice. What a great way to celebrate my birthday. Thanks, Bill and Brenda, for your part in that!

What can I say to show how much your words mean to me, my appreciation for such wonderful guests and for leaving such an outstanding review? WOW. You're too kind! Thank you so much. You're really wonderful people and I feel very fortunate for having meet you! God bless you both.


We just returned from our second week long stay at Sunset Acres. We have stayed at 3 other B&B's and nothing compares to what Bill and Brenda offer at their home. Not only is Sunset Acres a relaxing, beautiful place to stay, but Bill and Brenda are wonderful people who truly take the time to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and worry-free. They are both very congenial and we always feel like part of the family when we leave. We are looking forward to our next visit to Missouri and of course will be staying at Sunset Acres. Breakfasts are scrumptious. Ask Brenda to make her french toast speciality - you won't be sorry.

Julie and I stayed only a night-next time we will stay all weekend! Brenda and Bill are so considerate and welcoming! It was perfect-the food is outstanding, the room cozy, the amenities fantastic! It was fun visiting the animals, sitting on the swing by the pond, and simply sitting under the stars! This 'time together away from kids' was heaven sent! Thank you, Brenda and Bill for making it the best weekend ever!

My girlfriend Cindy planned an excellent surprise birthday weekend for me at Sunset Acres. She arranged a romantic birthday dinner for two on the gazebo cooked by Brenda and her staff. We had grilled pork loin with fruit chutney that simply melted in your mouth. For our side we had grilled veggies and the desert was a strawberry parfait. We stayed in the Fleur de Leis room which has access to the pool and hot tub area. Cindy and I would take a dip in the hot tub in the morning before breakfast and often at night before we turned in for bed. Sunset is far enough away from Kansas City that it is possible to see the stars on a clear night. For breakfast we had cherry almond crepes, bacon and quiche, again skillfully prepared by Brenda and her husband Bill. For an extra surprise, my girl ordered some double dipped chocolate covered strawberries. Sunset is a farm as well as a bed and breakfast. Cindy and I enjoyed watching the fainting goats and the peacocks. Ducks and other water fowl populate the pond where there is fishing to be had if you are so inclined. We feel like we're part of the family when we stay at Sunset Acres. It is our top get away from it all location. Thanks Brenda. Respects, S. F. Murphy North Kansas City, Missouri


I have stayed here several times and have always found the food, service, and ameneties to be outstanding! Bill and Brenda are friendly and goes out of their way to please you. I have been to several other missouri B&B's and had a good time, but they can't top the service and food that you get here!

Hello. Many thanks to you for your kind words. Happy to know you enjoyed your stay. This really makes my day! I hope I will have the opportunity to serve you again in the future. Take care.


What a place to stay! Brenda and Bill are both very personable. We felt like family, without the expectations that family and friends can put on your vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed everything Sunset Acres had to offer, especially breakfasts in the gazebo. Getting up early and sitting on the deck was awesome, watching the sun come up. Such a peaceful and relaxing home. Highly recommended.

This was our first anniversary and our first bed and breakfast experience. This stay went way beyond our expectations. Brenda and Bill go out of their way to be helpful. It was 3 days of living like royalty with nature and animals surrounding. The food was excellent, I couldn't have planned a better vacation.

Many, many thanks. You're such sweet people and I really enjoyed meeting you. I wish you both all the best in the years to come and look forward to your next visit. Take care.


WOW!! Absolutly wonderful... We stayed for 3 nights & never left. The place is so peaceful & well cared for; food was amazing; many new movies to see & fishing was good. Brenda is a wonderful chef. She made us the most romantic & delicious dinner we have ever had. We enjoyed our spacious room, the hot tub under the stars, the massages in front of the fireplace and visiting with our friendly host & hostess. Seeing the baby goats & colorful peacocks was a nice treat. Never heard of a fainting goat or seen one till now... Looking forward to going back when the pool is open. The gardens are just coming up. Lots of beautiful colors with the magnolia's blooming.. Such a short drive away to feel like we really went somewhere. Thanks.
