The Inn on Crescent Lake is beautiful! Our wedding took place outdoors and due to the rain we had the ceremony in the tent rather than on the terrace in front of the mansion. It was beautiful!

The first time I visited the Inn, I knew I wanted to get married there someday.

I have the privilege to work at this beautiful venue. The property has many advantages to holding a wedding there with the options of having indoor or outdoor ceremony's/receptions. I love that families get to spend the night or weekend there celebrating coming together. Getting... Read More to witness it first hand really makes me wish I could have my wedding here. Unfortunately, my fiance and I have very large families and many close friends that we want to celebrate our love with, so we are not able to have our wedding at Inn. If our wedding could be smaller we would have considered the Inn. It is such a great place with great owners. Beverly is amazing. She will do whatever she can to take the stress away from the couples getting married and their families. She is very prompt and will help you to follow a schedule you want to make sure your day goes smoothly.

The Inn sits on a breathtaking plot of land. My wife I had to select the rooms our family members would be staying in. It was a tough decision as we wanted to stay in each of them.

I was searching for a location for our wedding and my fiancé's mom, who lives in Ohio, came upon the Inns website. I decided to schedule an appointment to see the Inn. As I entered the property it felt like I was visiting a country side chateau. We were greeted by the Owner... Read More Beverly, she was so delightful, kind and her enthusiasm was genuine. Beverly was able to answer any questions I had; as well as, provide books with of previous weddings for me to look at. After touring the grounds I knew that this was it, my fairytale wedding destination. I knew everything would be in great hands with Beverly. Her experience with details on past weddings showed and I felt my stress as a bride melted away. As my big day came everything was perfect, Beverly did an excellent job with providing the proper support and professionalism needed for my big day. All of my guest had a wonderful time and stayed to the wee hours of the morning even my Dj wanted to stay to continue the fun. My guest still rave about how much fun they had at my wedding and reception. I wouldn't change anything about my day, to me it was perfect. The amount of love, / caring that the staff and Beverly put into my day was fabulous. I'm very thankful for one of the best days of my life. The next morning was just as magical the breakfast and the view was priceless. I still remember the amazing smell of the food and how delicious it tasted. If I could rate the Inn over 5 stars I would give it 10. It's an experience I can't wait to have again. My mother in law also enjoyed her experience at the Inn. Here's what she had to say "From the moment I arrived at Inn on Crescent Lake I was made to feel welcome and special. The intimate wedding setting was beautiful in the gazebo and the reception area around the pool was magically lit with candles that reflected off the water. I felt like I was on a movie set! Everything was so lovely! Breakfast the next morning was delicious and each guest was served and attended to like we were royalty. I cannot say enough about how great Beverly and her staff were and how they insured that everything ran smoothly and each guest was made to feel special." Carolyn Huffman

I cannot say enough good things about our wedding day and our several stays at the Inn on Crescent Lake. It's one of the most romantic places you can stay at in either Missouri or Kansas. Beverly and her wonderful staff are the epitome of professionalism and kindness and allow... Read More their guests to relax, unwind and recharge their batteries, so to speak. For our wedding, we rented the entire Inn for the weekend and all of our guests loved every facet of their stay. From the sumptuous, cozy rooms to the lovely grounds and swimming pool.

Our friends and family members still continue to rave about how much they enjoyed their stay at the Inn and how they have never attended a more beautiful wedding than ours or stayed at a more warm and inviting place as the Inn on Crescent Lake. We'll definitely be back ourselves for our next wedding anniversary! -John & Danna

Beverly takes great care of the Inn and is attentive to all details. She makes sure that everything runs smoothly and your guest are cared for. I knew I didn't need to worry about anything the weekend of the wedding because she had it taken care of. Unfortunately it seems she... Read More crossed the line with too many of our guests and became to overbearing. I noticed many of our guests tried to leave right after dinner was served. We hadn't even done our first dance or the bouquet or garter toss yet. I have been to a lot of weddings and I have never seen that many people disappear that quickly. It was certainly noticeable and concerning but I had no clue why people were leaving. I later found out it was because Beverly was hounding all the guest and making them feel uncomfortable. Family and friends have been telling me stories of her accusing them of sneaking in alcohol and making it impossible to have a good time. If you chose to book here, pay close attention to her rules and know that they must be strictly followed. My cousin is in the coast guard and was staying at the inn on Saturday and my Nana who hasn't seen him in years wanted to visit with him so she went to the Inn but was not allowed inside because only guests can go in the mansion. So even though it was pouring down rain, my Nana and cousin had to stand outside under the porch and visit. That was just one incident. She insisted she knew exactly how many people would be at breakfast and everyone had to be there at 9am sharp. She would call roll at breakfast to make sure everyone was there and if they weren't she would go wake them up. Be prepared to follow her schedule. Also, you can not have any glass at the venue what so ever. Finding all plastic decor is much more difficult than you would think. Most of the rules she follows I believe stem from the guidelines from her insurance. But I have never been to an Inn, Hotel, or Bed and Breakfast where you couldn't bring people besides guests inside. Either she needs to get new insurance with less strict rules or she is following them too closely because it certainly hindered the weekend. I had no idea she made so many of our guests feel uncomfortable until after the fact. All I knew was people were leaving quickly. I don't know if that is normal for her or if she was having a bad day. But I have heard stories from a few friends, cousins, and even my parents. However, The wedding and the weekend were absolutely gorgeous. The only complaint I or my husband heard at all had to do with Beverly. She certainly isn't a horrible person. She means well but it did make it hard for guests to have fun. Regardless,it was a gorgeous day and a fantastic venue. It was like our own little getaway and everything was beautiful. Complaints aside, I am so glad I decided to have my wedding weekend there.
