My wife and I decided to visit northwest Kansas to see the Arikiree Breaks and other attractions based on Kansas Magazines recommendations. One of those was the Spencer House Bed and Breakfast owned and operated by Kate and Carl Jenkins. Kate and Carl have developed a charming B&B. Easy to find in Saint Francis, the B&B is even better than...

Immaculate, friendly, thoughtful, interesting, comfortable - one could go on and on. A glass of wine upon arrival, quality antiques throughout, uniquely decorated and comfortable rooms, hosts who expect everything to be perfect. To top it off we had a gourmet breakfast on the porch that looked like something you might expect at a fancy hotel in Paris. All of...

So glad you enjoyed your 4th of July stay! Thank you for posting a review. It is always a blessing when guests value and appreciate the time they spend at our B&B. People who just drive by are always surprised when they walk in the door and see what the house has to offer. We feel it has a lot...

My husband was very reticent about staying in what he was sure would be "another pretentious" B&B. Was he surprised! After a VERY comfortable night and the BEST ever breakfast, we left feeling like we had known Kate and Carl for years, not hours. Cannot say enough positive things about Spencer House!

I was told that the breakfast at Spencer House B & B would be the best ever. Verdict: TRUE. The breakfasts we enjoyed were light years beyond our expectations.
