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!

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!

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
