What a treat! Blackwater is about 90 miles east of KC, a short jog off of I 70. Driving from STL to KC, I discovered Blackwater to be a good stopping point -far enough outside KC for a good value and interesting stop, but close enough to be in KC in the morning with an early start.
Lovely room and great stay. Blackwater is a charming little -read tiny- town that is interesting to walk around. I had dinner in the restaurant, which was a nice bonus. Food is just fine for a little old railroad town. I left very early, but the hosts had a pot of coffee on for me and left me a very nice continental breakfast. If I could have stayed till 7, I could have had the breakfast (included in your stay) served at the cafe across the street. At 6:30 am, there were already friendly townspeople visiting in the street and waiting for the cafe to open. Must be good!
Do yourself a favor -jog off 70 and visit the Iron Horse!
