This is a perfect chance for you to stay in one of the oldest houses right in the heart of downtown Kansas City! Who doesn't like staying in a place that has a story behind it?

This two-story Queen Anne-style carriage house was built in 1887 by David Slater, who was a tailor from Ireland. It sits on a 200-foot bluff overlooking the Missouri River and the historic West Bottoms.

Where you’ll be

Kansas City, Missouri, United States

This home is located in Quality Hill, which is mostly of a 19th-century French and Federal style, similar to St. Louis's historic Soulard neighborhood! The neighborhood was officially founded in 1857, and at one point, was considered the most fashionable and expensive neighborhood in Kansas City. Many of the city's leaders of power and industry lived high on Quality Hill's limestone bluffs in large houses overlooking the West Bottoms below, which contained the city's industrial heart, rail center, and famous stockyards. In addition, on September 15, 1806, the Lewis and Clark Expedition stopped on what is now at the north end of Case Park, located at 8th Street and Jefferson Street.

Some of the best places to eat in the neighborhood include The Peanut, which is known for the best wings as well as BLTs in Kansas City, Majestic, The Phoenix, and the Dragon House. In addition, some local bars where you can find some of the most entertaining townies include The Quaff, John's Big Deck, Beer 30, and on the nicer end of things, Hush Speakeasy. Everything listed is within blocks. I should also note, the Kansas City Convention center is one block from this area as well.

If you'd like to travel a few more blocks down you can enjoy 801 Chophouse, one of the best steakhouses in town; Bristol Seafood, some of the best seafood in town; Drunken Fish, for all you sushi lovers; Yard House, an upscale sports bar that serves yards of beer; and Country Road Ice House, some of the best BBQ in KC! In addition, the same area offers plenty of entertainment such as the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, the Midland Theatre, the Folly Theatre, and the T-Mobile Center. Some of the best night-life in this ara includes PBR Big Sky, Mosaic Ultra Lounge, Shark Bar, Howl at the Moon, No Other Pub by Sporting KC, McFaddens, and Karaoke Bar!
