About Kristine Becker

We bought this property 15 years ago because of its amazing surroundings. Rolling hills and three ponds will make you want to stay home. The acreage is beautiful anytime of year. It's accessibility to EVERYTHING in the area within 30 minutes, yet coming home brings you total solitude. We hope you'll enjoy all this home and its grounds have to offer as much as we do with our family and friends.

Kristine Becker purchased this estate in 1998

Why Kristine Becker chose Kansas

Kansas City has so much to offer from the nations best restaurants and entertainment to NASCAR, NFL and MLB! Our home is central to it all. We love taking advantage of everything KC has to offer while pulling into our lane brings us back to a place all our own. Experience everything a vacation should offer from excitement to solitude all in one place. Our home is spectacular yet casual. Winding down takes no time and there is plenty of space to find your own little oasis.

What makes this estate unique

You won't find a more luxurious yet comfortable and casual environment anywhere else in town. The views are amazing and the quite acreage brings families together. Even though the home is beautiful, its the times outside that our family enjoys the most. We love our mornings on the deck and the evenings on the patio. Clients will love the opportunity to have their own space, while being so close to NASCAR, Sporting KC Soccer, golf, Royals or Chiefs. Experience great restaurants, two BBQ joints just 1 mile away, or just relax on the patio with the grill.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review Ellen, we certainly enjoyed having your family with us to celebrate your sisters 80th! I know you all enjoyed the large dining room for your big celebratory dinner, nice to have the entire family together. I don't know what we're going to do now to keep the horses as happy as you all made them. You really spoiled them! You and your family were wonderful guests and we certainly appreciate the care and attention you gave to our home. I know you asked about future dates and we'd be thrilled to have you back. Have a great summer and we'll look forward to hosting you again soon. Safe travels, C&K

Reunion Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our group of college friends have come together more than 20 times over the past 50 years but this past weekend was by far the most perfect setting we've ever had! The house is beautiful and comfortable and has all sorts of gathering places for the whole group or for more private, intimate conversations. Walking on the grounds was peaceful and gorgeous - even the noise of the trains was joyous. The location was great for outings to both Lawrence and Kansas City but there really wasn't a great desire to leave the beautiful home. The kitchen was perfect for our needs and the hosts could not have been more accommodating. We loved it!

Perfect Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

What a great time our family had this past week-end at this home! Our group consisted of four couples and four small children and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house offered so many amenities!! TV, games, toys, wifi, grill, to name only a few. The children were very excited to "feed" the horses. The owners were very responsive to our needs and made us feel quite at home. The property is absolutely beautiful!! Thank you for a lovely week-end!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Jill. We enjoyed sharing our home with you and your family. It's always great to hear how comfortable our home is for large groups. We always hear how nice it is to have the space to "Be Together" but also have the space to "find a corner" when necessary! Dixie and Levi are happier than the children when it comes to treat time. And, you were here during our pear tree bearing huge pears; nothing makes them happier than having pear juice running down their chins! Kristine does a fantastic job of keeping our guests informed, engaged and happy throughout their stay. Glad you found our service to be "guest first". We look forward to hosting you and your family again soon. In the meantime, safe travels. Thanks again C&K

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this home. It really had everything we needed. I felt our hosts were very kind. They gave us a tour with instructions, as well as written instructions, and were available to us by text if we needed anything! It is a beautiful property and perfect for multiple families coming together. We felt very relaxed and welcome in this home. We were able to experience nature, but yet we were 10 minutes away from grocery stores, restaurants, Schlitterbaun, etc. Also, very close to Union Station, Science City, etc. The only thing I would have changed would be a small mowed path to the creek from the backyard. The path to the pond was perfect. I did not feel comfortable trying to get to the creek in shorts, so we didn't get to experience the creek. We definitely would have needed jeans and boots or tennis shoes to get back there. We highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review Crystal! We really enjoyed having you and your sister's families with us. We're happy you found our home so inviting even for its size, it has a really comfortable, lived in feel to it. And, yes, the location is just one more reason the property is so amazing and accessible. Being just 20 minutes from almost every corner of KC and having restaurants, shopping and groceries no more than 5 minutes away makes for an easy stay. Thanks for your input on the property! Glad you and the kids were able to use the paddle boat and John boat at the front pond. Unfortunately, we do also operate a commercial hay operation so, for about 60 days, we don't mow the path to the back pond or creek. This would compromise our haying. Just yesterday, 8/3/16, we cut our hay so we now have all 40 acres looking like a golf course! We'd love for you to come back and we'll give you a guided tour of the creek, hopefully we'll be lucky enough to find some of those arrowheads I told you about. Thanks again for being here and for taking such good care of our home. Come on back to the ranch any time. Safe travels, C&K

A Repeat Performance

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to stay in this beautiful home for our family weekend away. There were eight adults and seven children ranging in age from 16 months to 14 years. We had a fantastic time!!. The home is beautiful and spacious. Everyone has their own bathroom. And the owners could not be more delightful to work with. The backyard is fenced so we could let the little ones out to play and there is a beautiful patio where we could sit and watch them that is well shaded by mature trees. I have no hesitation in recommending this house to anyone. We made some wonderful memories there. Thanks again to the owners for their exceptional hospitality.

Owner's Response: Gaye what a pleasure to have you and your family back at The Ranch again! We enjoy having you as much as you enjoy being here! You're now part of the family! It was fun to see the kids jump right into "activities"available to them when we left you. The fence has been a great addition to the property it certainly provides some peace of mind and allows our guests with a dog have some freedom. It sounds like you put our property to use but also found time to explore our surrounding community and downtown KC it's fun to have it all so close to the property. You always leave our home in better shape than you found it and for that we are very grateful. Thanks for coming home again to The Ranch our door is always open to you and your lovely family! We love having you and look forward to "round three". Safe travels C&K

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our Family reunion was held on this wonderful property this past June and we couldn't have been more pleased. The layout was perfect for us with two separate wings that allowed the younger generation their space while allowing the more "senior" family members (me included) a less hectic spot in the other wing. We ate our breakfast and evening meals together (16+people) and found plenty of space to dine. The location was great as a launch point for sightseeing in KC and shopping with the Legends and the "Old Marble Factory close by. Tons of wildlife roaming the property and the grandkids loved offering the horses a "snack". Our first experience of "communial" living for the reunion and it worked out GREAT. Thanks for sharing your place with us

Owner's Response: Ronald it was a pleasure hosting your family at The Ranch! You all went above and beyond to take care of our home, even replacing a shower head that unfortunately went out! Having everything so close from downtown to the Marble Factory just 5 minutes away or just staying home and having the kids hike, fish, hint for arrowheads or feed the horses is a real benefit. We too love to have the option of bringing our family together for meals etc or having the room to spread out and find some space! We hope to have you back again soon. Enjoy the summer and safe travels. C&K.

Car: recommended

This property is perfectly located. Just 20 minutes from downtown Kansas City where you'll find some of the nations best restaurants, bars and entertainment, The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, The Country Club Plaza, The KC Zoo, KC Chiefs and Royals Stadiums and many other activities. We're just 4 miles from the Kansas Speedway, Schlitterbahn Water Park, The Legends Shopping Mall, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Cabela's, Hollywood Casino, and the Sporting KC Soccer Stadium. We even have two of the best KC BBQ 'joints' at the end of our road! But, were also a beautiful 7,000 sq. ft. estate home on 40 acres of seclusion, away from it all, surrounded by beautiful woods and pasture with three ponds; one has great large mouth bass, hybrid bluegill and catfish fishing. Hike our property, fish or go boating, try arrowhead hunting in the creek or just create your own relaxation time on our large deck overlooking the fishing pond or the 1,600 sq.ft. patio with numerous resting spots, grills and fire pit. You can even feed the horses! Golf is 15 minutes away with over 5 courses to choose from. You won't find a better spot in Kansas City for your corporate retreat, client sponsor trips for NASCAR or that family vacation.
