Melanie Johnson- Silver Heart Inn B&B
About Melanie Johnson- Silver Heart Inn B&B
Originally from the east coast, I moved to the Midwest over 20 years ago. I had gone to a B&B as newly wedded bride and fell in love with an old inn that was for sale. 27 years later, my dream has come true!
Melanie Johnson- Silver Heart Inn B&B purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Melanie Johnson- Silver Heart Inn B&B chose Independence
27 year life long dream to own and run a B&B. What I love about this property is the location in a historic area, the guest cottage, and the main house built in 1856. The outdoor areas are very enjoyable and lend charm to the overall property.
What makes this Cottage unique
I adore how the house and cottage are nestled into this wooded area even though it is on a main street with access to everything. The picket fenced yard is so delightful as it surrounds the back of the property making it feel like a 'secret garden'. My favorite area is the bricked courtyard with the bubbling fountain. The sound is so happy and draws birds and other wildlife for our guests to enjoy.

This was a fantastic value for a 30 day stay!
Love the beach cottage. It was great! Nice little fireplace. It was as really nice having a kitchen, washer and dryer. It was a home away from home!
Wonderful location. Convenient check-in. The space is wonderfully private and comfortable. Everything a guest would need.
Great little place for someone who is a traveling nurse, PT or other profession or anyone who needs a long term stay. Property is well maintained and the owners are responsive to issues as they arise. The location can be noisy due to the proximity to a busy road, police and fire stations but it wasn't bothersome for me. I would have given 5 stars but the couch is pretty dilapidated and the kitchen table is very, very small which isn't ideal if you need to study or work on other materials. However, the rates are reasonable and it has a full kitchen and full sized washer and dryer which is very helpful. I also loved the coffee machine which could accommodate a pot or just a cup of coffee. The owners and employees are very nice and I have no doubt you will enjoy your stay at the Beach Cottage.
It was great hosting you during your internship. We have loved the traveling medical professionals who have stayed with us over the years as we get to meet people from all over the country and share our great location with them while they are here. Happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our cozy little cottage. We are planning some new installations of furniture and are glad to hear some feed back from you about our upcoming design needs. Our aim is for a 5 star stay every time.
My husband and I are from California but my husband is a die hard Kansas City Cheifs fan. So for Christmas this year I surprised him with tickets to fly out to Kansas City to watch them play their rivals the Oakland Raiders. I tried to find a place close enough for us to get to the stadium that wasn't in the middle of the city and I tell you what, this little gem was absolutely perfect! Not only was this place just adorable, it had everything we needed and then some. The owners are also some of the most friendly people we have ever had the pleasure of renting from and went over and above what we asked for. There was a little snack basket waiting for us in the cottage and they also had the option for us to eat at their bed and breakfast which was just delightful! And because they knew our flights were leaving early Monday morning, they also made us homemade scones and gave them to us the night before so that we would have something to eat on our way out. Everything about this experience was perfect. If you are looking for a quiet little place close enough to the city for football or shopping or just for a romantic weekend away you have found your place! When we come back to Kansas City we will absolutely be staying here again!
There is nothing better than to hear that our guests had a 5 star experience. Thanks for your praise! Attention to details, and superb guest service is what we are all about. The cottage affords total privacy to the level that you wish for your stay. Breakfast at the B&B is always an option and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it. You will have to try my Cheddar Biscuits next time! We would love to have you stay again. It's nice to know that you have a familiar "home away" waiting for you in Kansas City. I look forward to your next visit.
Cute cottage get-away
Nice little cottage in the city. Right at the edge of everything, so it's easy access to the interstate, shopping, downtown, you name it. And out hostess, Melanie, is as nice and sweet as a person can get. We loved the breakfast and the wonderful tour of your bed and breakfast!
Our guests often remark about our location being so accessible to everything that they want to do! Independence has many interesting sites and activities but its easy to maximize your trip and take in all that Kansas City has to offer as well. I couldn't be more pleased that you had a wonderful stay. Thanks for the lovely review. I look forward to having you stay again and making "the Cottage" your home away from home in Kansas City.
Cute, Clean and Comfortable Cottage
This cottage is adorable, very clean and comfortable home away from home. The owners are very kind and knowledgable about the area. The breakfasts were wonderful. The bed is so comfortable! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would do so again! A true treasure in the midst of Independence!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us! One of the most fun things that we get to do is play "tour guide". We really love Independence and KC! Just let us know what you like and we can direct you where you need to go. We are always glad to attend to small details like that with maps, suggestions and the like. Breakfast is our favorite part of the day. Make a reservation to join us again. We are now featuring our fantastic Autumn menu! See you soon....
What do you like to do? Independence and Kansas City have endless options! Museums, Art galleries, Civil War Sites, Presidential Library, Chiefs and Royals sporting events, Symphony, Theater, Sprint Center, Concerts, Historic tours, Plaza, Shopping, Waterparks. I have been to all of these! There are so many things to do that you can't fit it all in on just one visit. We would be glad to help you plan and direct you where you need to go.
