The first 6 couples who desire to share a separate fully furnished 2 Bedroom Air B&B Apartment with a 2nd couple pay just $200 more for the week per couple staying in the Destination Suites Apartments.  Normal rental rates for those are $150/night for 4 people (split two ways, that normally would be $450 per couple for the week).

Some participants like to stay longer and visit nearby historical sites, such as Independence, Liberty, Far West, and Adam Ondi-Ahman, and/or the Missouri Star Quilt Company (just 8 miles away in Hamilton).  Let us help you figure out how to make that work as well.
