Staff went out of their way to accommodate our stay since we were suppose to get an ice storm that weekend. Every time I called (3-4 times) no matter how many questions I died, I got a knowledgeable response and a courteous response. I got a descent massage, and my husband was impresses with his. I did expect the rooms to be a little bigger and newer compared to the picture online which is what I didn't give the rooms an "outstanding". The pillows could have been a little fluffier but some people may not like poofier pillows lol The food was exquisite. I can't say enough about the presentation and class. I would go just to eat. The picnic was even good. It seemed to be packaged with such thought and care. During our stay we had drunken pasta, salmon, chicken, and steak. I think the chicken was my favorite. One night we also had cheesecake which was ahhhhmaaaazing. We got to meet the owner which meant a lot to is that she took time out of her day to say hi and she even went out of her way to make me a cappuccino per my request! Thank you for making it a great experience. We will be back!
I stayed here on my honeymoon. I coudn't afford much, so I was looking for somewhere for a good price that was relaxing and nice. I would recommend this place any day. The service was great, all the staff was really nice. The food was excellent and made for you at your chosen time. Plus, the.area was just beautiful and the view from the eating area was gorgeous!
My husband and I both started new jobs right before our wedding, so we decided to have a mini moon. We had over 50 places to choose from and we settled on Cedar Crest after some exploring. It was the best decision we could have made. We stayed in the largest room, the Tuscan room. It was beautiful and spacious with a glorious jet bathtub and a bathroom with heated floors! We also enjoyed our meals being delivered to our room and every single meal was so delicious i will dream about them until my husband and I return. And we will return!!! The food is so fresh and so delicious. Our staff was incredible. Our massages were so relaxing that we fell asleep during them and could barely walk from being so chill!!!! The nature and trails surrounding the property were perfect. Our only regret is that we did not add on the stargazing package with our stay and next time we definitely will! Our stay was magical and perfect and much needed after a hectic wedding! I highly recommend. :D
Excellent in every aspect and every area! This is possibly the best all around B&B we've stayed at except in Ireland! The deciding factor was the food, which pushed it over the top! I was gobbling down a few things that I rarely even eat because they were so exceptional! A bit pricey for the area but worth every penny!
My husband and I booked a suite to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Having such busy schedules, it is difficult for us to find time to relax. This vacation was perfect. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was just what we needed.
We wanted a close get away to celebrate our anniversary and when planning, we focused on a place that would foster relaxation and quality time together. I can't say enough about the great staff, beautiful gardens, superb views and outstanding food. It really was a fantastic experience. We did the couples massage and the picnic the following day, which was perfect to take on our long walk. Only wish is that the fire pit would have been going that evening. We had full intentions of sitting out there but we were hesitant to start the fire and then be responsible for it. Other than that, it was perfect.
Fantastic food served farm-to-table with fresh vegetables and herbs right from the garden. The chef is onsite and very skilled as a chef and baker (morning coffee cake was perfect). Staff is wonderful and very helpful in every way. Great weekend getaway with beautiful views and trails to hike.
This place has amazing views. It's very quiet not much to do is what we were looking for is time to relax and enjoy each other's company. The food was amazing every meal we had and we had breakfast, lunch and dinner. The innkeeper arranged for us to get massages which were also amazing. And to top the weekend off we had smores at the fire pit outside. So if u want somewhere to get amazing country views and relaxing and awesome food this is the place to go.
I can't say enough about this place! The views, the gardens, the nature trails, all bring a sense of serenity. Our room was beautiful and spacious with great views as well as a jet tub to relax in! The meals were healthy and delicious. The couples package was a bonus for us..champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, massages; I'm ready to return!
Spring-Fall is a very busy time for my husband's company. He works outside 10-12hrs a day, often 6 days a week. With three children, we don't get much time to ourselves once he gets home. So, we like to take 2 day trips to a B&B a couple of times during his busy season to help him get some down time to relax and for us to get some uninterrupted time to ourselves. Cedar Crest Lodge is our favorite destination. This beautiful property is so serene and the view is amazing! If you feel like you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life this is the place. Take time to swing in the hammock or sit by the pond while you're there and enjoy hearing nothing but nature!
My husband and I stayed here for one night to celebrate our anniversary. We took advantage of the couples massage and the private dining for dinner and breakfast. We could not be more pleased. The accommodations were perfect. The food was incredibly tasty, all vegetables came from the garden on site. We were comfortable, well cared for thoroughly pampered and relaxed! Highly recommend!
Scott and Matt are lovely hosts. I came here midweek for a few days to unwind and had the place to myself. Chickens, turkeys and dogs roam freely. Simple and well kept trails run through the property and there is a pond for fishing. Ellie and Adele, their Great Pyrenees and sometimes Cocoa, the neighbor's Chocolate Lab will accompany you on a walk. Breakfast was homemade biscuits. Scott was kind enough to give me the recipe. For a few dollars more lunch and dinner are provided and it is well worth it. Scott made stuffed sandwiches for lunch, again from scratch. He is quite the bread baker. Matt grilled up some fresh squash from their garden along with grass fed steaks. The house is clean, comfortable and well decorated. I stayed in the Jesse & Rhoda Vance room. It has an eastward facing balcony, which was lovely for watching the sunrise. The best part is the private bathroom with a deep Jacuzzi tub with room for two. Perfect for soaking after a hard day of doing absolutely nothing besides wandering from the pool to the shaded hammock for a nap. There are a couple of towns about 20-30 minutes away but I never left the farm. There is a separate barn with a charming bar available. I suggest you bring your own adult beverages as those are not provided. It’s a great alternative with a unique atmosphere. Scott and Matt will entertain you as much or as little as you want. While I am regretful to leave I look forward to coming back. I had a fantastic time. I wanted to relax and decompress for a couple of days and that’s exactly what I got. My expectations were exceeded.
My husband needed some quiet time after a tumultuous month with a death in the family, and Cedar Crest Lodge was the perfect place for us. The quiet setting, beautiful landscaping, delicious breakfast, and surprising views (in Kansas!) all served to make our stay more than what we had hoped for. The owners were very gracious and our room stayed cool and comfortable. There are other rooms available to guests for reading, watching movies, or just relaxing. We enjoyed our stay very much and would be quite happy to visit Cedar Crest Lodge again.
This was our first B & B experience. We loved the home cooked delicious meals, all the farm life (they even let you help if you ask!) and especially loved the super comfortable beds. We will definitely be back! Also, if you have children, any age, I think they'd have a blast with all the fun things to do at the house!
We had a great stay. We were married on a weekday with our reception on the weekend and came in between the two to relax and get away.We booked the "couples get away package". It included a couples massage and no shortage of food-- we had so much we had to take some home with us. The landscaping was gorgeous; it was a beautiful, remote place to catch sunsets.
Pros: excellent food, heated floor, HUGE JACUZZI TUB, hiking trails, friendly staff, great massages, free coffee, heated towel rack, games and DVDs were available to borrow...probably more stuff Cons: not really
Thank you Cedar Crest Lodge for a relaxing getaway from the city and our small children! My husband and I spent the night in the Wine Country suite and enjoyed every minute. The staff was friendly, the property is beautiful, our room was clean and cozy and the steam shower was awesome. Thanks for a great overall experience, we will be back!
We spent our honeymoon here during the winter 2 years ago and spent this past weekend visiting for a birthday. Our goal is to get there in all the seasons, as the scenery changes dramatically and beautifully!! The most perfect getaway.
Took my wife here for her 30th birthday so that we could have a peaceful getaway, and we received just that. The food was amazing, and everybody was so nice. We also did some massages that were fantastic. Again I can't say enough about the food, and the trail is a nice walk as well. Look forward to our next visit.
The food, staff, lodge, owners, and the scenery are all top notch. My wife have been several times, and this is by far our favorite Bed & Breakfast. We've been to several in the surrounding states, and Cedar Crest Lodge is at the top.
Cedar Crest Lodge is the perfect getaway spot. Perched upon a scenic hilltop in Pleasanton, Kansas (less than an hour from KC!), this bed and breakfast has the best of both worlds: breathtaking views and peaceful wooded trails. If sitting on a porch swing admiring colorful sunrises and sunsets is your thing, or getting in a brisk walk among serene ponds and trails filled with the fresh aroma of cedar inspires you, then this is the place for you.Cedar Crest Lodge has rustic charm with modern day comfort down to a science. There are magnificent wooden beams that soar above the den and a grand wood burning fireplace that will immediately give you the warm fuzzies. When one of the owners offers you a warm cup of Joe in their beautiful handcrafted mugs, you will want to kick off your shoes and sprawl out on the plush, over-sized couches before you even get to your room! Yet, you won’t want to miss staying in one of their suites! Each room is freshly kept and stocked with thoughtful items. Many rooms have their own theme- French Wine Country or Victorian to name a couple- yet even their basic getaway suite meets the highest standards. And if you need a little extra help relaxing, you can enjoy the on-site spa and let your tensions be melted away by one of their professional massage therapists. What really sets Cedar Crest Lodge above so many other B&B’s is that they truly cater to their guests. Unique to Cedar Crest is that they offer both breakfast and dinner- and the food is truly second to none! Secondly, they grow much of their own produce right on site, so everything is fresh and healthy. Each meal is curated with the true passion to please their guests. Their menu is not the same ole same ole, but rather art created to give guests the finest dining experience.Cedar Crest Lodge is more than a B&B, the heart of this tranquil spot is to offer high quality accommodations and memorable cuisine to those needing rejuvenation in a way that is both meaningful and memorable.
We chose Cedar Crest Lodge for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 10 yr anniversary. Tuscan Manor and Couples Weekend package were amazing. The food was wonderful and the inn keepers went out of their way to make us feel special. We will definitely be back.
