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

My new husband and I stayed at Hawthorn the first night of our honeymoon. We were blown away with how beautiful and well kept the mansion was. 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

This B&B is out of this world wonderful! Jim and Wendy were heavenly hosts. The home had ethereal beauty and class. Every need was attended to. The rooms were tastefully decorated. Breakfast was incredible. Fresh, homemade, and plentiful. It was quite convenient to purchase tourism packages and tickets for Independence attractions. The location is close to historical Independence Square as... More

This historic Bed and Breakfast is beautifully maintained, with large, luscious treed lawns and flower gardens. Located in Independence, MO, home of President Harry S. Truman, it is within minutes drive of many museums and national historical sites. A great hideaway for history buffs (especially presidential, civil war, or early America westward movement), or those in search of a quiet... More

Well appointed house, nice amenities such as coffee by our room, some snacks and bottled water. Smallish room but given the architecture of the building, understandable. The bathroom was quite tiny. Breakfast was slim - despite the owners being told I was vegan, they had no clue what that meant. "So you eat pancakes?" WiFi connection though free was weak... More
