Let's go on a unique adventure together. We're currently offering the mansion as a completely private whole-place rental at the same rate as a single room while we're putting the finishing touches on the space. Originally built in 1885 by prominent grocer George Kennard, the mansion became the home of Cherry Mash creator Ernest Chase in 1910. There are 5000sqft total to explore, including a fully functional kitchen and two dining rooms.

The space
The first floor features a living room open towards the formal dining room. Passing through the as of yet sparely furnished drawing room, you go past the first floor's half bath to the butler's pantry into the kitchen. An informal dining room with a pellet stove is open toward the kitchen. Upstairs are two wings with 2 bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms each, connected through a library. The rear quarters have a separate laundry room on the second floor. There are stairs leading to a carpeted loft space and full bath on the third floor, not furnished yet.

If you're having trouble with my name, I actually go by Slawik (pronounced Slavic). I live in Kansas City and work full time on restoring and maintaining historic homes. My other passions are gardening, and understanding the history of human knowledge and culture, how we developed social structures to live together and constantly redefine those. Running several Airbnbs on two continents (also in Germany), it's not just about the place, the relationship between host and guest, but also about the relationships with the neighbors, and the town as a whole. That's what makes Airbnb so unique of an experience, actually getting a chance to experience how others live.
