Hummingbird Chateau, an English Cotswold-style home available on Airbnb, is ready to welcome guests after a complete modern renovation at historic Unity Village near Lee’s Summit.

The home, which can accommodate up to 12 to 14 guests, is the third stand-alone Airbnb rental at Unity Village. The space is perfect for retreats, reunions, family vacations and more.

The home retains much of its 1920s charm but has been given a modern and luxurious renovation for guests attending events at Unity Village or groups looking for a unique getaway in the Kansas City area.

Featuring four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a large living area with electric fireplace and two spacious patios (including one with a gas firepit), Hummingbird Chateau is ideal for small and large groups or for longer stays. The home also has smart TVs in each bedroom and the living room, plus views of the golf course and beautiful Unity Village grounds. Essential items like linens, toiletries, 24/7 high-speed internet access, Keurig coffee maker and kitchenware are provided.

A perk that most Airbnbs don’t offer: Guests receive free parking and access to the Unity Village gardens, chapels and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

Brandi French, manager of Unity Village Hotel and Conference Center, can’t wait to hear feedback from the first guests to book Hummingbird Chateau.

“The other Airbnb properties on campus have been extremely popular, and we are excited to offer a third experience for our guests. Hummingbird Chateau has a comfortable feel with perfect touches of elegance,” she said.

“This is our most luxurious property yet,” said Jim Blake, Unity chief executive officer, about the renovated and newly decorated home. He highlighted the large, stunning bathrooms coupled with modern finishings that nod to the late ’20s when the home was built. “The enormous patios and especially the firepit on the back porch are perfect for cozy gatherings of family and friends.”

Hummingbird Chateau also offers guests a chance to explore the rest of the stunning Unity Village campus, including a par 36 nine-hole golf course, 2.4-mile walking trail, and the newly opened Labyrinth at Unity Village. The 100-year-old Unity Village boasts 1,200 wooded acres, the largest fountain display in the Kanas City metro area, an award-winning rose garden and two buildings that are included on the National Register of Historic Places. The wide-open spaces and distinctive Mediterranean architecture create a tranquil atmosphere that is unmatched in the area. Hummingbird Chateau can be booked at
