We were only in for one night for the Kenny Chesney/Jason Aldean concert. Jim and Wendy greeted us and made us feel at home. The room was very nice and the whole place was beautifully restored. The next morning, a huge, delicious breakfast was served. We highly recommend this B&B.

My fiancé and I planned to visit Kansas City for the weekend and of course waited until the night before we left to book a hotel. Everything was booked full because the Royals were playing in town so we found Hawthorne and went to their website to make a reservation. We figure for $150 and what was sure to be... More

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful bed and breakfast this past weekend. It was the first time we had ever stayed at a B&B and we were not sure what to expect. In short, it was amazing. The house itself was built in 1900 and looks every bit a historic B&B. The decor was amazing. It had a... More

Jim and Wendy know how to do the B&B thing right. The grounds, house, decor, and food are just perfect. They were friendly and available, without being intrusive. There was plenty of info about local activities. There are lots of things to do and see within half an hour drive. We will buy gift visits for our married children to... More

The external beauty is what lured me in, with interior pictures that were a bit deceiving (pretty outdated and NOT because they were trying to preserve the historical setting!) When I made initial contact with the inn, I told them this was a special trip as my best friend and I were celebrating 45 years of friendship, as well as... More

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...
