Romantic Bed and Breakfast in the Heart of Historic Independence

In 1919, future president Harry S Truman and his wife settled into a white two-story home on 219 Delaware Street in Independence, Missouri Truman’s grandfather built the house in the late 1800s, when the town was a popular frontier outpost. With its clapboard siding and charming crimson shutters, the Woodstock Inn Bed & Breakfast blends in with the classic-looking homes scattered throughout Independence’s historic district, and it resides just a half-mile from Truman’s former home.

Pam French, Woodstock’s cheerful innkeeper, aims for old-fashioned hospitality and to foster a homey, relaxed atmosphere; she bakes chocolate-chip cookies for guests, who can sip tea in the common area or play parlor games in the library. In the morning, a full, hot breakfast awaits guests—french toast, sausage, omelettes, fresh fruit, and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate are served on the roomy french trestle table in the dining room.

Each European-style room at the Woodstock Inn features dramatically different, home-like décor and subtle themes. For instance, one superior queen room is decked out in plaid linens in a Scottish-themed space; meanwhile, there’s a femininity and romance to a lacy Victorian room, which has floral wallpaper and gauzy white curtains. Alternatively, pale-blue toile walls make up the interior of the English suite, which is decorated with picture books from the English countryside and an oversize soaking tub with shampoo bottles shaped like Winston Churchill.

A blue-and-white color scheme adorns the Bridal suite, also known as the French Riviera suite. The spacious interiors don hardwood floors and a skylight, and a double jacuzzi heightens the romantic ambiance.

Independence, Missouri: Oregon Trail History Near Kansas City

The city of Independence, situated 5 miles east of Kansas City, was the defined starting point of the Oregon Trail. The frontier city boomed as its businesses outfitted pioneers for their journey west in the mid-19th century. Independence Square, a half-mile from Woodstock Inn, was a meeting place for groups getting ready to head out on the trail as well as for streetwise software programmers hoping to adapt the experience into a computer game. Today, restored storefronts dot the square, including several top-notch restaurants and a soda fountain where Harry S Truman—a native of Independence—once worked.

Artifacts and journals from settlers heading west are on display at the National Frontier Trails Museum. At some of the exhibits, visitors can listen to recordings of voice actors who bring the stories of the pioneers to life. The inn is also situated about six miles from the Kansas City Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium, and for abundant shopping and dining, guests can take a short drive to downtown Kansas City.
