We had a great time at the Serendipity B&B. Everything was great. The inn-keeper was very accommodating and pleasant. If ever in the area, we would stay there again.

We spent three comfy nights in the Frontier Trails Suite which is in the convenient carriage house. The furnishings made us feel at home: magazines, books, CDs of music box tunes, a stereoscope viewer (doesn't everybody have one?) and a fully equipped kitchenette that's handy for lunch or dinner; but, in the morning opt for the freshly-prepared delicious breakfast and good company in the main house.

Your friendly hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Walter, may offer you a tour of their stately home or perhaps Susan Walter will drive you around Independence in her 70-something-year-old Buick. It's a blast, literally: Ahooga, ahooga!

We stayed at this B&B 2 nights while visiting the Truman Library.

My husband and I stayed in the cottage in the rear of the main house.

It was decorated in what I would call "bric-a-brac". All kinds of stuff everywhere. We had a sitting room, bath and bedroom.
I had read a review in the Atlanta Journal Newspaper complementing this B&B.

The innkeeper served breakfast each morning and also sat with us to talk or answer our questions. She seem to dress for the period wearing large hats when out in the garden.

The breakfast was the same each morning. This would have been the only improvement in our stay.

The Serendipity B & B is the best I have stayed in. Not only are the breakfust delightfully prepared, they are served on fine china. The rooms are so decorated as to think one is lodging in a Museum.

If you are looking for an excellent place to stay with superb decor and ambiance, then you will want to visit the Serendipity Bed & Breakfast in Independence, Missouri. While you are there you will want to engage the host and owner Mrs. Susan Walter, she is a wealth of information and ideas about the area and life in general. My wife and I stayed at this wonderful B&B in December of 2004 for her birthday. The plans for the weekend stay was made by one of my tax accountants in my office with no assistance or knowledge from from wife. When we arrived that evening at the hotel we were amazed at the amount of "stuff" we found in our room. We've traveled extensively throughout the world, and the both of us was awe struct with the variety of items you will find in your room to choose from. If you are reader, movie buff or a collector you will find all of this to be a wonderful experience right in your room. The location of the hotel is idea if you want to stay in the Independence Square area and walk from business to business for a great shopping experience. We were very pleased with the knowledge that Susan had of the area and her ability to direct you to all of the activities in the area and the future activities that will be coming. Each morning it was a delight to sit at breakfast with individuals you have never known and share ideas and background information. We thought it was nice that Susan would join us for breakfast and give us a briefing on the daily activities. If you are going to be in the metro area of Kansas City, Missouri for a few days or more, we would highly recommend the Serendipity B & B in Independence, MO as your place to stay. When you are Independence you are easily 20-35 minutes from any an all locations in the metro area of Kansas City. We would like to say once again to Susan, thanks again for making my wife birthday a birthday to remember.

We spent three nights at Serendipity B&B in June, 2004 and were very satisfied. There was plenty of room; the breakfast was served in a pleasant dining room; there was reserved parking and we received suggestions when we requested them.

Were we to back to Independence for another visit, we would certainly stay there again.
