Located in historic Independence, the mansion, built in 1900 and fully restored/renovated in 2000, sits on a two acre estate with several beautifully landscaped gardens. Six extra large guestrooms, all with private baths, are exquisitely decorated.

Great breakfast and wonderful service. Enjoyed wine in the Florida room with friends prior to heading downtown for dinner. Stayed in the Bibler room this time with the King bed, but liked the Westminster room better.

We have stayed at about 4 B&B's now in different cities. This is our favorite. The breakfast is huge and delicious. The owners are friendly and helpful. The biggest drawback is that it is not in exactly the nicest part of time, but overall, we are always happy to stay at the Hawthorn when we go to Kansas City.

The Hawthorne house is by far my favorite bed and breakfast to stay at - we have visited several times - the home is immaculately kept, the food is awesome, and this bed and breakfast provides a very relaxing environment for just being! Thank you again! - Annette

My Wife and I were there for our 30th wedding Anniversary and it met with all our expectations. The room was so nice and very comfortable. The House was gorgeous and rehabilitated to its original 1900 state but with all the modern amenities. The Owners were delightful and very accommodating to our questions and needs. I highly recommend this B&B. We have stayed at many B&B's and this ranks in the very top.
