Thank you Melanie for your kindness and conversation.  Loved the Cardinal room and bed.  Food, atmosphere and hospitality were wonderful.

What a joy to find Hawthorne Inn and Melanie!  I felt so welcome right away.  The Cardinal Room was very charming and the bay window was a real treat with its comfy love seat.
After a restful night, I enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast in the elegant yet comfortable dining room.  Melanie is a great cook!
I felt more than ready for the drive that morning and will remember my stay here fondly!

I loved the feel of this inn. Very comfortable and unique! The host was very helpful and made a wonderful breakfast. Much better than any hotel you’d stay at. The bed was super comfy and there’s a lovely porch you can utilize and a little sitting garden as well for warmer months!


We arrived at Hawthorne Inn in evening on Friday.  Melanie, the “Inn Keeper”: welcomed us with a smile and made us feel comfortable as she led us to our place for the night…”The Cardinal Room.”   Lovely touch of Cardinal decor with just enough to make it seem cheerful and warm.  We quickly got comfy, watch some “tele” and loved the cushy – bed.  Quickly slept, & actually forgot where we were, was such a good sleep.  Quiet all night.  Heard the birds chirping in the morning and took our time before going down to breakfast.  Yummy hot eggs, fried potatoes, mixed variety of fruit, bacon, honey for toast with butter and peanut butter and chili-n-cheese.  Delicious!  Went back for seconds.  Fresh coffee, (hot) and fresh orange juice.  We visited for a time about the history of this old homestead.  So lovely, and the environment relaxing, & inviting.  Ended our time playing cards in Library.  Fun-time for us!  Time to go now, but plan to return in future, & will recommend to others.

Thank you Melanie!  We so enjoyed our stay in the Woodsy room on our way to Branson, that we made a return trip back!  The Cardinal room was also very comfortable – we’ll have to come back another year and try another of your beautiful choices!!

Your breakfast is delicious and just right for traveling – (not so massive & heavy).
We also enjoyed visiting with you – talking family & travels – it’s always fun to make new friends!!
