Overview

About the property

Nature escape of intimate gardens, lush forests, peaceful pond, and scenic views

The Garden Carriage House is a lovely garden setting on 10 acres. We are located on the south end of Overland Park, Kansas on the edge of the Blue River Valley. This nature escape is surrounded by lush forests, a peaceful pond with a stone bridge, and intimate garden walkways designed by Artist and Photographer Kelly Daniels. This space is perfect for one to reflect, a couple's romantic getaway, or a fun family vacation (children LOVE exploring here). 5 minutes to grocery store, great restaurants and 20-30 minutes to down town Kansas City attractions!

Some activities for you to do here:

Catch and release fishing in the pond.

Hike along the forest trails.

Enjoy a fire - cozy up with your loved ones or roast s'mores

Watch the sunrises and sunsets light up the entire sky

**If you plan to bring pets, we know they will love it here, too! We ask you to message us about pet rules, and we do require a $30 pet fee.**

Please be nice, friendly and respectful. This is a quiet area, not meant for loud events. We want people who appreciate nature in a peaceful setting.

About Kelly Daniels

Creating artwork for people has been a passion for Kelly Daniels ever since she was a child. When she was 11 she drew a layout of the design of her future home gallery. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Central Missouri State University in 1983. She has owned her own gallery for 20 years and for 25 years has created artwork for clients all over the United States.

Her artwork and gardens have been featured in national magazines such as Midwest Living magazine, Kansas City Homes and Gardens magazine, Kansas City Home Design magazine, and the Independent magazine among others. Her work has been featured in the Kansas City Symphony Designer Show house for the last 10 years. She has been featured with her work on the Women Today show on channel 41, Fox 4 news, and channel 5 news garden shows.

She specializes in creating scenic portrait art of children, families and weddings in her gardens, reminiscent of the Impressionist style. She embeds photographs into canvas and applies oils and dyes to enhance color and perfect the images, creating very personal pieces of art.

Kelly Daniels purchased this house in 1991

Dog friendly, spacious

  • 4 of 5

Very dog friendly. Kelly was very kind. Although expected based on location- a lot of bugs!

Nice getaway but close to the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience here. I was a little worried pulling up seeing the wedding tent, but it appears to be set up for the season and there was no wedding while we were there. The set-up worked well for us with young kids, as there was a door at the bottom of the stairs to close. So peaceful with the pond and ducks, and the chickens were a favorite of my kids (and the dog was super interested too). Because of the location by fields, there were quite a few spiders that found their way in the front door, but nothing unexpected given the location. Plenty of space upstairs for an extra air mattress and a pack and play for the kids to sleep too.

Horrible Few Days

  • 1 of 5

The cottage was nice on the inside. However the overall experience was horrible. There are a few things which should have been taken care before arriving. It was very hot outside with temperatures close to 100. When we arrived the air conditioning was off and the upstairs was hotter than outside. We had to unload luggage and go find air conditioning somewhere else for a couple of hours. The glasses that were provided were dirty and we had to wash by hand before using. The cottage sleeps four. We were provided 4 towels and washcloths. This would be fine but the dryer took 6 hours to get the towels to where they were just damp! In earlier review we saw it was mentioned dryer did not work, so still not fixed? The outside could have been helped by cutting the weeds and emptying the trash cans. It appeared aminals had got into them. These are things when you go on vacation you should not have to deal with! Again cottage was nice but very disappointing because owner should have made sure these issues were taken care of for their guests! We have used Home Away before with awesome experiences but it was because the owners took pride in welcoming their guests by taking care of the small things! I Kelly would take more pride in making sure the cottage is ready for guests to enjoy their vacation instead of wasting time doing things which should have been done already!

Relaxing, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Kelly is a wonderful host. Not only was the place clean and beautifully decorated, she left us some goodies from her garden, fresh eggs and coffee. Her carriage house feels like it's out in the country but is close to stores, highways and KC. Highly recommend!

Private, beautiful, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second stay at Carriage House. Our last stay was wonderful, and this one was even better. The property is beautiful and very private. The accommodation itself was great for us, however as a family of 5 we did have to bring in an air mattress.

Kelly, the property owner, is incredible. She is easy to reach by text, and very accommodating of requests.

We will definitely be back!
