We had friends over for dinner last night. We’ve known them since 2006 when we purchased Hawthorn from them. Most Sunday nights we can all be found either on the sun porch or in the dining room around the big table. We eat great food, enjoy a good wine with dinner, play cards, laugh and chat about everything. It makes for a relaxing Sunday evening for everyone to get ready for the coming busy work week.
This weekend we were fortunate enough to have shared the space with a lovely couple from Joplin, Missouri. It is their third stay at Hawthorn, A Bed and Breakfast. They come to the Kansas City area every year for a marathon shopping weekend. This year they brought another couple with them to share in their annual trek. Once they checked in and were settled in their rooms, they came downstairs and set up the game board at the dining room table. We poured the coffee, Jim treated them to freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and they played and chatted all evening. Like us, they had a wonderful relaxing Sunday night. We’re already looking forward to their next visit.
Our guest rooms are large and comfortable with elegant furnishings, but our guests enjoy all the common areas as much as their own rooms. Hawthorn, A Bed and Breakfast is more than just overnight lodging; it’s an experience!
Located just minutes from I-70, Hawthorn, A Bed and Breakfast in Independence, Missouri, offers the convenience of being within a short driving distance to The Country Club Plaza, Westport, the Power and Light District, Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s Outfitters and The Legends at Village West.
