Karl and Rebecca invite you to relax and refresh at Walnut Waters Bed & Breakfast, one of the most peaceful country inn estates in all of the Kansas City, Missouri area. As you enter, you will delight in the calming views of the pond and woods as you follow the winding drive across our bow truss bridge. Enjoy the serenity of the country on our secluded 21 acres and yet be just minutes from everything that Kansas City offers.
We are Karl and Rebecca Darley, your innkeepers, and we welcome you to Walnut Waters Bed & Breakfast. Karl is a retired carpenter, and I am a registered nurse. As a carpenter, Karl’s work spanned between framing custom houses to working in the high-rises in Chicago. Karl’s love of woodworking in his shop and woodcarving are his real passion…he loves wood. My nursing career started in the emergency room, and most recently I was the school nurse for K-8th graders…a perfect blend of nursing and mothering. Between us, we have a very large family with seven children and twelve grandchildren. Our love for entertaining, good food, nature and meeting new people sparked our long-time dream to own a bed and breakfast. Everyone that we told that we were thinking of embarking on this venture said that they could not think of anyone who would be more perfect innkeepers. But truly we are really just down-to-earth people, who would love to share a bit of what makes us happy with others. Originally from Joliet, Illinois, we had searched all over the country for the perfect place to open our bed and breakfast. After visiting this remarkable location and surrounding area, we knew it was where we wanted to create the perfect getaway experience for you. Our unique estate combines the peaceful serenity of the countryside with the convenience of being close to local attractions such as the Kansas City Wine Trail, Whiteman Air Force Base and the University of Central Missouri. Walnut Waters Bed & Breakfast is a lovely destination for vacations and weekend getaways. We have stayed at bed and breakfasts across the nation and have taken the most comforting and enjoyable details from each of them to give you the best accommodations and most relaxing experience possible. We hope all who visit leave as friends!
