The Hawthorn is amazing place to stay. The service is excellent. We were happy with everything related to the Hawthorn. We were a little disappointed that the city of independence seemed like it was half closed. A lot of the businesses were closed down and empty.

Bed & Breakfast for the Win!!!
Beautiful historic home with lots of vintage charm. I would choose this over a hotel stay...every time.
Karen, us1 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
Facility was great.......Very nice old rock home.........Beautiful grounds........Very nice room..... Breakfast was very good..........Did have a booking issue.. sent me a reservation confirmation # along with confirmation that full payment was received. Apparently, they did not forward the info to the B & B. When my partner arrived and tried to check in, the owner stated that he had no reservation for us. She contacted me on the phone and said that there was a problem and to secure the res. confirmation #. The owner got very short with her and I stated that I had a confirmed reservation as well as a receipt for payment and that I expected a room. The owner got upset and said that I had "copped an attitude", and that he did not have to provide us a room. He also stated that he could "throw us out into the street" if he wanted to do so. Also he stated that the only way to confirm a room was to contact him directly. We should have found another facility, I would have done so, had I been speaking to him directly, rather than on the speaker phone. Finding us a room was no problem, as we were the only guests staying there that night, and the B & B has twelve (12) rooms. Sort of put a "damper" on our stay, and we will not be going back, ONLY because of the rather (very) rude treatment that we received by the owner. I guess that someone earlier in the day had been difficult, and perhaps had contributed to his poor attitude and behavior. G T Vassar, KS

Superb place to stay in Independence, MO
This B&B in Independence is close to all things that one might want to do in Independence. It is close to Kansas City, and to major sports venues. The house is beautifully decorated in a 1900 style manner. The grounds are large and well-taken care of. The owners are very friendly and Jim is a great cook. Our room was comfortable and larger than most rooms in B&Bs. The rooms are on the 2nd level, and there is a refrigerator, cold bottled water, glasses and cups along with some snacks in the hall. A nice touch is having hot coffee in the hall at 7 AM. Breakfast was excellent in a porch-like room with multiple windows and that had many growing plants. Parking was easy on the grounds.The common areas on the first floor were amenable to spending hours reading. This is a superb place to stay.

History with Modern Amenities
What a wonderful stay we had at Hawthorn. We were met by Wendy and given a nice tour of the house. She then escorted us to our room and explained the amenities, scheduled breakfast (discussing any dietary restrictions), and gave us a few recommendations for dinner (we chose Rheinland and if you like German food, you will be very impressed). After returning from dinner we settled in for a comfortable night's sleep. Breakfast was prompt, fresh, plentiful, and delicious. We also had the opportunity to meet Jim at this time and found him to be just as personable and friendly as Wendy. The property is a restored turn of the century mansion that is comfortable and, although quite large, cozy. Jim and Wendy are knowledgeable, personable and attentive, yet never underfoot. We look forward to many return trips in the future.
