Lyons Twin Mansions B&B, Fort Scott Kansas

I stayed at the Lyons Twin Mansions B&B in downtown Fort Scott Kansas for the Mpix Meetup a few weeks ago. Miss Pat was an amazing host! I don't think you could ask for a more gracious host or inn keeper! From the minute I called for directions to the minute I left, I felt like I was talking with a favorite aunt. You know, the one that asks if you had enough cake for breakfast? and would you want any ice cream to go with it?

On arrival Pat asked what I'd like for breakfast, and when, and gave me a lot of great choices. I swear if I had asked for cake she would have made it!

The mansions have an interesting history and are filled with delightful stuff to pique your interest and add to that Victorian Mansion feel.
If you ever go to Fort Scott, look up the Lyons Twin Mansions, and tell Miss Pat I sent you!
Based on my experience, I'm going to be looking for B&Bs in the future, not the sterile, boring, big chains hotels. 
Here are some photos of the mansions and grounds, just impressions, really, but thought I'd share.

Last but not least, Miss Pat is adding a coffee house/breakfast  restaurant service in one of the mansions, and having a naming contest to name it. Check it out, maybe you'll win a weekend there or breakfast for a month!

I really wish I could have made this meet up! I'm dying to meet all of my fabulous photographer friends and, by the sounds of it, Miss Pat! Did someone say coffee house?
