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.

Deb and I enjoyed thoroughly our short but delightful stay at the Hawthorn. It was our 5th anniversary and we had never stayed here before but it was so worth the trip. We were in KC for the weekend and we love bed and breakfasts so much more than any hotel. Hawthorn is simply gorgeous. What a house! Breakfast was amazing and Jim and Wendy are so delightful to chat with. that had to be our favorite thing, talking with them and hearing details of their home and lives. Try that with a hotel clerk.....all in all it was a short stay as one nighters go but well worth the money to have home away from home like that.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Hawthorne Mansion. The inn keeper stayed past check in time to accommodate our late arrival. The Breakfast was so beautiful and scrumptious. We especially loved the potatoes cooked with a hint of maple syrup. The bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. The whole mansion was impeccably clean. We were the only guest for the night and all the rooms were locked. I would have liked to see the other rooms. I will definitely recommend this B&B to friends and family.

I highly recommend Hawthorn B&B. We stayed with Jim and Amy Friday and Saturday night. They were both so warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. Their home is lovely! It's full of antiques and had a romantic cozy feel throughout. Jim made breakfast each morning and it was delicious. On Saturday we didn't eat again until dinnertime because the meal was so hearty. Both mornings we had fresh fruit to begin. The first morning we had omelets, potatoes and fresh from the oven raspberry muffins. The second day was homemade pancakes. I can't say enough about the comfort and hospitality of Hawthorn B&B!

The Hawthorn B&B was lovely. We enjoyed our stay. It is convenient to many Independence & KC sites, the breakfasts were excellent, the hosts very pleasant & helpful, the rooms were very nice & the common areas (enclosed porch, living room, etc) were very inviting.

We keep coming back to Hawthorn because the beautiful and spacious home is clean, wonderfully decorated and cozy, as well as because Jim and Wendy always make us feel welcome and at home. The breakfasts are always fabulous, too, and the location is excellent for Royals baseball fans. We highly recommend staying at Hawthorn. John and Rosemary
