“Comfy and Cozy”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I am a local and my Husband wanted to get a way but not travel for his birthday. I researched bed and breakfast places and found this lovely and quaint Beach cottage in the heart of Independence Mo. A short 35 minute drive from home and I felt a though we were in our own private cabin in the woods. The Beach cottage does not come with water or sand or any of the things associated with the beach...but it does have the total feel of a beach cottage once you take in all the decor and details the owners put into making it surreal.

My regret is not getting up early enough for the breakfast. They did offer to save some for us but we reclined and slept in until we have to get up and check out. Great weekend and Cafe Verona Italian Restaurant (recommended by the Owner) was an excellent dinner choice.

“Perfect and fun”

We were looking for somewhere quiet while visiting independence and the KC area as part of our wedding anniversary celebration. The "Beach Cottage" listing was intriguing and we were fortunate that it was available. The property and the hospitality were outstanding. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed imagining the fun the owners must have had picking up seaside theme items to complete the decor. We dined at the picnic table under the beach umbrella on the pebble beach close to the boardwalk and had the perfectly relaxing evening we had hoped for. Breakfast was to die for and gave us the opportunity to visit in the main house - very elegant with an interesting pedigree and history. We are rather picky, but we can say with confidence if you are thinking about this property and it is available, don't hesitate - book it. Proprietor Melanie and daughter Lindsey will take great care of you.

Selecting the décor for the "picture-perfect" retreat IS really fun! We are so glad that you enjoyed the results. We are honored that you chose to spend your time here for such a memorable occasion. Many of our guests love the cottage for the extra privacy, but also enjoy visiting the Main House for breakfast so that they can experience the historical part of the property. We strive for every guest to have an extraordinary experience by attention to details and exceeding your expectations! We try to think of everything you might need to make this your home away from home. Thank you for your lovely review and we look forward to your next stay!
