About our home

Kansas City is referred to as "the heart of America" as it is in the middle of America - it is also known as being the "gateway" to the West. If you are interested in seeing the West, Kansas City is a very easy drive to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. The drive itself is very scenic, taking you through the prairies and sunflower fields of Kansas as you climb into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains as you near Denver. From Denver, it is a gorgeous drive to Aspen. Aspen is a premier skiing town in the winter, but in the summer, there are host of other outdoor activities to partake in, from canoeing, mountain climbing, biking and hiking. The beauty of Aspen in the summer is that you get luxury accommodations at bargain basement prices. If you are into camping, another beautiful drive from Denver is Rocky Mountain National park located in Estes Park, Colorado. In Estes Park you can soak up the mountains, go horseback riding or have a round of golf and you can choose any kind of accommodations you can imagine, from tents to cabins to luxury chalets.

If the bright lights of the big city are more your taste, but you don't want to spend the entire summer in an expensive city, then Kansas  City is the place for you as we are just a 2 hour flight to Chicago or a 3 hour flight to most destinations in New York or California. Bargain air travel is easy to arrange. Train service is also available.


More about us

  1. My husband is a professor who will be taking a sabbatical in the summer of 2006. He will be working on a research project in Europe from May to July 2006. His research will  have him traveling to 5 different cities in Europe. We are looking to be in Barcelona from the end of May until the end of June, in Northern Italy the last week of June and London the 1st 18 days of July, with a side trip to Edinburgh around the 5th of July. We will be traveling with our son Andrew, 16 yrs and our daughter Tara, 20 yrs. Other family members might join us from time to time, but we'll believe it when we see it.

Where is it?


We live in an older three-story home located in a quiet neighborhood of Kansas City, whichis located in the center of America. Use our home
as a base as you travel by plane, car or train to any city in  America, yet experience the true living experience of most Americans when you are
relaxing at home in Kansas City. Kansas City is a medium-sized city that in and of itself has much to offer. Our home is an easy walk to a world renowned art museum and an  upscale shopping district. We also offer theater, symphony, 4 star dining, many parks, golf, tennis and walking trails. If blues or jazz  music is of interest to you, we have many fine venues featuring this type of music. Kansas City is also home to a major league baseball team, the Kansas City Royals and to a national football team, the Kansas City Chiefs. If you are interested in taking a college course,  there are many universities to choose from, the closest being the University of Missouri and the University of Kansas. My husband teaches doctoral students at both of these universities. If bargain shopping is in your plans, Kansas city has several retail outlets to choose from to find the bargain of a lifetime. Or, if you are looking to take home a fine antique at wholesale prices. Personally, estate saling 
is one of my true loves and my home is filled with many wonderful items that I've found at these sales.
