Fall In Love With Autumn at the Twin Mansions
Fall is one of Kansas’s most beautiful seasons. Crisp air makes you reach for the warmth of another, while explosions of red, gold, and orange foliage set the stage for a memorable time away together. Make the most of it by staying somewhere that’s warm, comfortable, and showcases the best of the season, both in flavor and in views.
We have put together a few ideas for you for the perfect Fall Getaway to Ft. Scott!
A ROMANTIC GETAWAY
There is no better time than the fall for a quick, romantic weekend getaway! With a collection of several unique suites (and even a couple of treetop hideaways, which allow the fall colors to almost burst through your windows!) we know you will find the perfect spot for Autumn romance.
Take a walk through the beautiful Gunn Park trails and enjoy the vibrant colors of nature. With approximately 6.5 miles of trails, you will be sure to fill an afternoon with relaxation and exercise.
Grab a latte at Common Ground Coffee Co. (we recommend the Pumpkin King!) and head across the street to the Iron Star to browse through their lovely antique mall. You will find beautiful bargains left and right - everything from an over-sized antique dresser that was re-purposed to a buffet, to handmade handbags and seasonal home decor. They are starting to get Christmas decor in and it is GORGEOUS!
A GIRLFRIEND GETAWAY
There's a reason we were named #3 by Midwest Living for "15 Great Girlfriend Getaways". It really IS the PERFECT quick getaway for girlfriends! Only an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Kansas City, it's a perfect spot for a book club outing, a bachelorette party, or a reunion! Did you know we have 3 large adjoining suites? Perfect for that large group of ladies to share late night bottles of wine and laughter!
Start your day with Mimosas and breakfast at Nate's Place, located in our South Mansion.
Nate's Place is a dining experience like no other. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or make a reservation for our Fine Dining by Candlelight. Choose from a variety of made from scratch breakfast menu items, including BYO Omelets, Eggs Benedict, Signature Sausage Burrito, and Homemade Granola. Our lunch menu offers healthy alternatives to fast food including, locally-sourced, farm fresh spring mix salads, delectable club sandwiches, and freshly prepared pastas.
Complete your meal with our world famous, fully loaded Bloody Mary, fine selection of beers, or glass of wine from some of Kansas' best local wineries!
Looking for someplace to relax after a long week? Enjoy Happy Hour in our Library Bar every Thursday, Friday and Saturday 5 - 6 pm, with all well liquor only $5.
Looking for some peaceful way to refresh? Head right upstairs to our on-site spa - Refreshed Salon and Spa - for facials, manicures, pedicures and massages. Did you know that we give our spa guests special drink and appetizer discounts for Nate's Place? That's right! Who doesn't love to be pampered, while sipping on a glass of wine and enjoying our famous Italian Nachos? YUM!
Experience the charm of small town living and mingle with the locals November 3rd at The 15th Annual Forks & Corks - A Taste of Fort Scott! This is a premier event in Fort Scott and a perfect way to taste the local flavor! Enjoy tasting of the latest in wines, beers & liqueurs as well as tasting of featured items from local restaurants & caterers. Gather the group and ride the 50-minute narrated Trolley Tour for a tour of our beautiful town.
Another perfect event for a girls' trip is the following week. The Fort Scott Holiday Open House is Nov 8th. Shop, sip, and snack as over 20 retailers will be open late for you to shop for gifts & holiday decor! Many of the locations will be offering drawings, festive treats and beverages for you to enjoy! Register for $50 in Chamber Bucks! Ride the trolley from store to store, or drive and park on your own! The participating stores will be in the Downtown Historic District as well as other locations in town.
Whatever type of fall getaway you choose, you can be sure to make wonderful memories for years to come! Just read our guests' experiences!
"We have stayed at Lyons Twin Mansions twice and both times have been very pleased. Beautifully decorated and peaceful, the rooms are large and comfortable. We also love Nate’s Place, the food is amazing." - Pamela H., Olathe KS.
"This is the most nostalgic and comfortable place I have ever stayed! When we first arrived we were met by Shawn who knew who we were and even knew what we were having for dinner that night (amazed us) then introduced us to miss Pat who treated us as though we were part of her family. She gave us a tour of the house and a detailed history of the house. As we toured she waited till last to show us our room which was as it turns out was the master bedroom. It is the best of all the rooms and called the Legacy. That night we had dinner at Nate's Place, which was amazing. The dinner table was all set and as newlyweds they had catered to that. If you like history and nostalgia then this is definitely the place to be. Our stay here is something I will never forget. I really didn't want to leave, it's so peaceful and ALL the staff make you feel as though they have known you your whole life. Thanks Miss Pat and all your staff for making our honeymoon weekend all that I imagined it could be." - Connie W., Paola, KS
