I recently spent a wonderful weekend at the Hawthorn. I was traveling with two friends and we were looking for a beautiful accomdation with privacy, space and a tasty breakfast. Hawthorn exceeded our expectations! Wendy and Jim are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was incredible! Homemade muffins, triple-berry pancakes, scrumptious breakfast potatoes-the list goes on. The rooms are beautifully decorated. I... More

Excellent destination for a Girls Weekend -- The Hawthorn property is beautiful and comfortable, and Westminster Suite was perfect for us. Breakfasts were magnificent! We will spread the word -- and we will be back!

We stayed here over last weekend in the Westminster Suite. Jim and Wendy were great, Wendy was a little friendlier but I would kind of expect that. The property IS well maintained and I think the CLEANEST property we have ever stayed at. With all of the knick knacks and figurines sitting around u would think u would see a... More

We traveled to KC for a business event and came back in the evenings to Hawthorn Bed and Breakfast- for just that: a bed, and breakfast. Hawthorn turned out to be so much more. It turned our business event into a comfortable personal event, a place of comfort, to rejuvenate, and relax, after a very busy day. We were just... More

It was in mint condition and beautifully decorated with classic taste. The owners are kind and with excellent friendly service. Our room was so comfortable and clean and the sheets were amazing!!!

My husband and I had a small intimate wedding at Hawthorn outside on the front lawn. I cannot say enough about how great Jim and Wendy are to work with. They went above and beyond to make our day special. Wendy has an amazing talent for decorating. She suggested things I would have never thought of. Jim makes incredible food.... More

We were looking for a quiet weekend away from it all. The Hawthorn offered everything we wanted and more. We stayed in the Gallagher room and were not disappointed. The Hawthorn is situated just far enough away from Kansas City to escape the city noise and yet close enough to still enough the downtown area. Jim and Wendy offered fantastic... More

Jim and Wendy were great hosts. Same goes for the value of the Hawthorne B&B. Great place with a welcome home feeling. I stay at places all over this beautiful country and really enjoy places like here just off the beaten path. Jim was kind to offer dinner selections close by. We chose an Italian restaurant he suggested which was... More

We spent our 30th wedding anniversary in the Westminster suite. The room was charming and had fantastic views: to look out our window was like looking out into the English garden. Both Windy and Jim were fantastic host and hostesses. We had such a great time there. The breakfasts were magnificently presented and delicious. We sat out on the sunroom... More

We were married on Dec 14th 2013 and had a wonderful experience and stay here. The place was decked out and very cozy. There were trees in all the rooms and the mantels were all gorgeous! We had a small family wedding and dinner and the setting was perfect. The food was home cooked and outstanding! The room was very... More
