If you want to stay really close to the historical sites and experience true history, the Serendipity B&B will offer you that. We thourouly enjoyed our stay and would return to visit again. Be sure to ask for the tour of the house from Susan and Doug and ride in the 1927 Buick. Great place to stay.

We hated this place but stayed for 3 nights because we had pre paid. The pre payment policy should have been a clue to avoid staying here. We did talk with another couple at breakfast who decided they would move on to a hotel and forfeit their pre payment. In hindsight, we should have cut our losses and just left...

I was at first sight intrigued by this place but intrigue quickly turned to dismay when we were handed the keys to our room and opened the door. The mustiness in our room, was so strong that we were almost sickened by the odor. We had pre-paid for the rooms and were told that there would be no refund, only...

We stayed in one of the Carriage house suites in July 2009. We stood on the front porch for about 10 minutes ringing the bell and eventually had to call to get the innkeeper to come to the front door. This occurred despite the fact that we arrived at the time directed by the innkeeper in the literature we were...

My husband and our daughter stayed in the "Spirit of Independence Suite” suite for 6 nights. I thought the place was very charming and reasonably priced compared to other hotels in the area. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of a phone, and my husband missed watching his cable T.V. However, they did have wireless Internet that worked well....

We recently stayed for 2 nights in the carriage house at Serendipity B&B, and were thouroughly impressed. Although not terribly excited about the many antiques in the photos, this B&B truly was a pleasant suprise. The hostess was great, the property was within walking distance to several restaurants, and the breakfast was good. Be sure to ask for a very...

My wife and I have stayed at this B&B at least once per year for the last five years. It's such a pleasant getaway no matter what season of the year. The breakfast we were served was wonderful. Our host was very courteous. The historic downtown Independence is so close too. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a...

I have stayed twice at the Serendipity B&B, and if in the KC area, will again. I found it such and interesting, old mansion, and when asked for a tour of the main house, Susan was more than happy to show and tell the history and stories of the place. I stayed both times in the carriage house, and enjoyed...

Our anniversary was a memorable occasion in the Serendipity Carriage House surrounded by Victorian antiques, a window full of colored glass vases, beautiful lithophanes (porcelain pictures), lots of interesting old books, and colorful gardens. After a delicious breakfast of spiced fruit, strawberry muffins and ham and cheese quiche, the owner took us on a tour of the 14 room home...

Nine of my women friends & I spent 2 nights in the cottage house having a terrific adult "slumber" party. We had use of the complete house, including the kitchen, and had a wonderful time. Susan was very accommodating about everything. She even took our group photo and gave each of us a copy our last morning. While there, a...
