Waldo Guest Cottage is a freshly updated guest house in the charming, walkable Truman Heritage District. Just two blocks from the Harry S. Truman National Historic site, it is also within walking distance of restaurants and merchants on the Independence Square. Surrounded by a private enclosed courtyard, couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers will appreciate privacy, the natural setting, and home-like ambiance.


Waldo Guest Cottage sits behind the Twyman/McGuire/Harper House (circa 1910), a Historic Landmark within the charming, walkable Truman Heritage District and is accessible to all the places you’ll want to visit. The Truman Library and Museum is .5 mile to the north, and the dining and entertainment on Independence Square is .5 mile to the south. Kauffman Stadium is 7 miles away, and the entertainment districts of Kansas City are an easy 8-mile drive.

The property is recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat, and the nature-supporting gardens are ever evolving to give more focus to native plants. You’ll enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine from the café seating on your private balcony which overlooks the sunken courtyard gardens surrounding the Cottage. Think writer’s or artist’s retreat!

Amenities include reserved off-street parking; keypad entry with a unique PIN for your stay; closet with hangers and ironing station; kitchenette supplied with complementary French Roast coffee and biscotti, juice, fresh fruit, and bottled water. The Cottage has a mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, dining area and dinnerware. The comfortable living room sofa converts to a queen sleeper, and you’ll have access to 200+ television channels. The guest Wifi, tech charging unit and work space meet your connectivity requirements. The bathroom suite is outfitted with a large shower, towels, hairdryer and basic toiletries. As a discriminating guest, you’ll appreciate all that Waldo Guest Cottage delivers.

You have a designated off-street parking space, and common area security camera.


The Cottage sits to the south of the property, directly across a large garden deck from the main house. We share the courtyard door, and will likely see each other as we come and go, but the Cottage is your private space during your stay. Outside, enjoy your balcony overlook or feel free to stroll through the courtyard gardens.


The Cottage is fully stocked upon your arrival, but if you run out of coffee filters, etc, please text or call me. If you would like trash removal, please place the trash in a white kitchen trash bag (located in the kitchen base cabinet) and set the tied bag outside your door. We will take it from there!


Recycling trucks make their rounds Monday through Thursday. Our recycler picks up on Tuesday morning, around 7am.

Janiece and Terry were unbelievably gracious and thoughtful. We were greeted with a quick tour of the cottage and a suggestion for dinner on the square. We were also surprised with a token of congratulations for our first wedding anniversary! The cottage was spotless, airy and surrounded by gardens, and well-stocked with a light breakfast and even soap! We loved our stay and would encourage anyone to seek out Janiece and Terry.

My husband and I spent three nights in the cottage in August. It was exactly as pictured and described. We were extremely comfortable and close to everything we wanted to do. The bed linens were super nice, the towels thick and fluffy, and everything was extremely clean. There were lots of little touches that were really nice--fresh fruit, breakfast bread, bottled water and juice, coffee and creamer. We had a great stay and hope to come back soon!

The perfect place to stay for a research trip, holiday, or combination of the two!

This is our 8th Airbnb in three weeks and one of the best. We were in town for a wedding and the reception was at the pavilion in Independence so we chose to stay here. The cottage is just beautiful and the property it sits on is equally as beautiful. Mornings we spent on the patio facing the garden and afternoons we sat on the balcony facing the gazebo. We had more than what we needed for morning goodies, coffee, and water. The bathroom is very large and well stocked with all the special creature comforts. Comfy living room and bedroom to spread out. We are sad to leave.

Lovely and right by Truman Library and Museum (great for researchers) -- the bedroom and living area are spacious, clean and comfortable with lots of light. Janiece made everything easy and nice, including coffee, muffins and fruit.

I'm an Independence native, and moved South in the 80s where I fell in love with and married Terry. After our wedding, we came home and stayed at a quaint cottage surrounded by gardens. Fast forward 16 years and we moved back to Independence, fell in love with a historic home in the Truman Heritage District, and now call this home. Behind our home just happens to be Stella’s Guest House, that magical place we stayed all those years ago. We reopened Stella’s as Waldo Guest Cottage in 2017.

In the spring of 2017, I completed Master Gardener training through the University of Missouri Extension Service, and started the process of converting our gardens to native plantings. Recently, we achieved Certified Wildlife Habitat status through the National Wildlife Federation to honor what exists, and the environmental path to which we are committed.

In addition to hosting guests, gardening and engaging in environmental stewardship, I'm working to complete my Masters in Creative Writing studies.
