Well hello there

Hi, I'm Liesl and these are my people: Harlen, Mady & Ethan.  They make my heart beat fast.

In 2016, we were a family in desperate search of a new story.  I was working 60+ hours a week at a corporate job, my marriage was barely surviving and my children knew me as the last mom to pick them up at daycare.  Our family was in crisis.

One hot summer day we went searching for a new dream together. We toured a creamy yellow house with white pillars located in downtown Lee's Summit, MO that would make the perfect Guest House.  As the realtor guided us around every corner, we unanimously agreed she was meant for us. 

Today, my people and I own the Historic Browning Guest House. Our weeknights are spent decorating the Browning in the latest seasonal decor, raking leaves (jumping in them too), and balancing our work/life/ family. While we do not live in the home (because nobody wants to vacation with two small kiddos & two large dogs)-we love opening our guest house for you to enjoy (in peace & quiet).
