Overview

About the property

Our home is a large colonial farm home located on five picturesque acres and surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm land. Located 15 miles north of the KCI Airport between Kansas City and St. Joseph, MO, one has access to all the attractions and activities in both cities and everywhere in between.

The home boasts 16 rooms within its spacious 5,000 square feet including:

• 4 bedrooms which comfortably sleep 24 people

• a group room

• library

• dining room

• gourmet kitchen

• two fireplaces

• upstairs gathering room

• courtyard

• and a screened-in porch

The property also features a rustic 3,500 square foot barn. It is perfect for any larger indoor gathering with open space for a barn dance, family reception, or other event. Use of the barn is not included in the rates listed.

Open acreage between the home and barn, allows your imagination to run wild. The grounds offer a large, level area that is as large as a professional football field. It can accommodate any outdoor event -- from an outdoor picnic to a football game at a family reunion.

With its location being 15 miles north of the Kansas City International Airport it provides the perfect location for out of town guests coming for any occasion.

It is also close to shopping in Weston, Zona Rosa, Atchison, St. Joseph, and is just 45 minutes from the Plaza. For guests who want to explore the area, we provide a list of restaurants and nearby shopping to make a fun experience as convenient as possible. We are close to several state parks, wineries, historical sites, museums, and sports arenas, race tracks, theme parks, and more.

For those who want to make the most of their time at the home, you may also cook your own meals in our gourmet kitchen or hire outside caterers. We have two ovens, two stoves, two refrigerators, a dishwasher, microwave, and ample counter space. We have dishes and silverware you may use as well.

For groups who do not have a specific agenda, we have books, games, and music that guests may borrow to enhance their experience. Free wireless Internet is available as well.

The house comfortably sleeps 24 adults. Our mattresses were custom-made by Hawn Bedding in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Sixteen of the beds are extra-long twins and the remaining four beds are unique bunk beds with attached stairs and plenty of storage. The extra-long twin beds can easily be joined to create a larger sleeping area.

Take in the fresh air and beautiful scenery that surrounds the home. You will find yourself stepping back into a piece of American history during a simpler time filled with sun-brightened days, warm afternoons in the shade, and natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Whatever the season, the home offers a relaxing and rejuvenating environment.

The home offers a warm, safe, beautiful environment where you can relax, get energized, brainstorm, or accomplish whatever you wish. When you reserve the home for the weekend, or the week, your group is the only one in the residence, which gives you complete privacy. However you spend your time, you can be assured that it will be a special personal experience. We believe your experience will be so positive that finding a reason to come back is all you think about as you drive away.

We do have satellite TV and a DVD player.

We are not fully handicapped accessible.

What makes this estate unique

Everything about this property is amazing! Whether it be the absolute quiet of the house, the continuous breeze, the grand staircase, the amazing starlit sky, the historic tobacco barn, the double swing in the screened-in-porch, or the one that hangs from a tree in the field, this property is incredibly unique. Everyone that comes here, wants to stay forever!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Journey Home was a great location for our company retreat. An escape from the city without driving too far. The home's layout, with multiple rooms available for breakout sessions, was just what we needed. The food prepared by our hosts was fabulous! The dessert....YUM!!!

We highly recommend this location and will be planning future events!

Thank you Journey Home for your hospitality.

Beautiful getaway for a large group - key word: plenty

  • 5 of 5

We watched the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 here.

We had three sets of grandparents, 16 grandchildren, and two siblings with their spouses. We filled 22 beds with two others visiting for the day. There was plenty of room for all! We loved staying at the Journey Home. The kitchen has everything you'd need to feed the masses. It was nice to have two refrigerators, two ovens, two stove tops. We had eggs, sausage, and pancakes for the morning and homemade Chicken Alfredo, salad, and garlic bread for our main meal. There was plenty of room to prepare and serve the meals. There is a dining table that seats 8-10 and four small round tables that each seat four. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra blankets as needed in the closets. It was nice to have two full bathrooms with a half bath downstairs and a full bathroom upstairs. We could always find an available toilet and shower when needed. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub along with a stand up shower with three shower heads (one shower head is handicap accessible). The back screened porch area is a perfect place to relax and enjoy outside along with the front and side porch areas with relaxing chairs to experience nature. There's plenty of yard room for the kids to run around. There's just a personal touch in how well kept the home is. You feel like you are visiting a family member and welcomed with open arms. So glad the Journey Home was available for our stay. I highly recommend it.

The property was beautiful and very private. The only negative would be its a distance from city.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home. When we arrived it exceeded our expectations in over allappearance and coziness. It's extremely comfy atmosphere and the kitchen provides everything you can possibly want or need to provide for a large group of people. The distance to get groceries or go to the city is quite a drive, but the home was lovely.

A great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 adults and 9 kids, and this was a great place for an extended Thanksgiving/Wedding anniversary celebration! The owner and property manager were great to work with regarding a couple of early questions, and the home was very clean as well as allowing plenty of room inside and outside for everyone to have their space.
