Guests enjoy the convenience of being close to all that is happening in the greater Kansas City and Independence areas, yet far enough way to avoid the congestion and hassles of urban living. Our location is convenient to all major highways and centrally situated for guests traveling the Midwest. We are just two miles from the center of historic Independence, home of Harry Truman, and a short drive away you’ll find Kansas City attractions, such as the Truman Sports Complex, home of Kauffman and Arrowhead Stadiums, Country Club Plaza, Crown Center, Union Station, Sprint Center, and the Power & Light District.

There are many activities in the area to enjoy, including sporting events, shopping, and dining; but you don’t have to leave Hawthorn to have a wonderful time. Whether you are relaxing in one of several common area rooms to visit, reading the paper or a good book, or just enjoying your favorite beverage while coasting on one of our patio gliders; Hawthorn is the place to get away from it all. Unwind on the sun porch, play cards in the parlor, or walk the grounds ~ you can do it all.

Hawthorn B&B’s extra-large, yet affordable guestrooms are the largest in the area. This affords guests the comfort they expect while maintaining the intimate elegance they can enjoy.
