We had our wedding at Hawthorn and truly enjoyed every aspect of the experience thanks to Jim and Wendy's extra care, thoughtfulness and timely suggestions. As part of the wedding, we stayed overnight and all the accommodations were SO comfortable, clean and very soothing and pleasing to the eye. Breakfast the next morning is NOT to be missed! We are...

My wife & I stayed for two nights at Hawthorn while in town for minor pro hockey games. The grounds are expansive with large trees and flowering plants. The 1900s home is well maintained outside & in, with inviting common areas on the entry floor & comfortable private guest rooms upstairs. Jim prepared delicious breakfasts each morning, while his wife... More

Unique in style, comfort and food. I stayed here while doing research at the Truman Library. It is centrally located to great historic sites in Independence. Jim exceeds the normal B&B cook for a breakfast. Great muffins and pancakes! For a B&b it is an excellent value. Excellent place for outdoor events. Hosts were very welcoming.

First off, Jim and Wendy are wonderful hosts. They made us feel welcomed and the small things that they do (water and sodas in the fridge, cookies on hand, etc) made us feel special. We had the Bibler suite on the top floor and it exceeded our expectations. Frige, microwave, coffee pot, table and two couches. It also had two... More

My husband and I came for a weekend getaway to Kansas City. This bed and breakfast was the perfect start to each day. Quiet and relaxing with the perfect backdrop to send you back to a simpler time, we felt refreshed and rejuvenated to tackle tourist outings each day! 10-15 minutes from breweries, the Roasterie, Westport restaurants and bars (must...

Jim and Wendy were so welcoming! We flew in to see the Seahawks play the Chiefs and stayed the night before the game. They were so helpful and sweet. Our room was cozy and the mansion looked amazing! Loved all the holiday decorations!! Breakfast was delicious and all the attention to detail throughout our stay was impressive. Jim even gave... More

My hubby surprised me, with a 4 day stay at this fabulous B&B. The owners, Jim & Wendy are so very attentive to detail and taking care of their clients. I have gluten issues and they were extremely careful, with my breakfast and what they offered. I would highly recommend this lovely B&B to anyone!

The rooms are beautifully decorated. I... More
