My place is close to Independence Public High School & St. Peter & Paul's Church (Walking distance). You’ll love my place because of The Vintage Vibe. My place is good for couples, business travelers, and families (with kids).
A unique decor created almost entirely of upcycled and recycled materials
Welcome to DaddyRoy’s Bed & Vintage, our small family-run guest house. The home was built in the 1950’s by Ahgie (Lyga) Johnson. Ahgie’s father was Roy M. Lyga, the long-time proprietor of Lyga’s Store which operated on Main (officially Washington Street). In 1908 Roy began his mercantile career as a clerk in his father’s store. With silver hair but gold in his heart, all his grand-children called him “Daddy Roy”.
DaddyRoy’s is located at the entryway to Independence on Highway 93 / 121, a few minutes away from the beautifully restored St. Peter & Paul Church.
A house to enjoy
With an overall vintage vibe as a common theme in our décor, you’ll find something charming in every room. Our favorite room is the bright and cheery breezeway, with orange doors and 70’s floral print. In the summer it serves as an informal guest sitting room. The spacious living room and dining room are combined as one great room. This area has several windows and is a light drenched space perfect for those seeking peace and tranquility, to read, watch movies, or just watch the world go by. The new flat screen TV comes with access to Amazon Prime and Apple TV (including multiple movies) is provided.
The dining table expands to seat six. The kitchen includes a banquette seating area for five framed by a large picture window.
A washer and dryer are on the main floor. Wireless internet is available throughout the house.
The entrance area host an outdoor patio table and four cushioned chairs set under an awning for perfect shade when dining or entertaining guests. The back yard has a swing, hammock and other lawn furniture which is made available to longer term renters upon request.
We have two lovely guest rooms available at this time; a queen room (The Paris room) or a double room (The London room) or you can rent both as a “suite”. Both bedrooms are on the main floor.
The bathroom has a tub/shower combination with grab bars near the shower and toilet for the elderly or those requiring assistance using our facilities.

Commitment to the Environment
We hope you’ll appreciate our quest for comfort combined with ecologically minded products and community minded practices.
We have an entire closet off the kitchen dedicated to recycling with with clearly labeled containers. We feature many reused “upcycled” items: from the coffee tables in the living room made out of old suitcases, to the 1940’s lard cans from the Olde Creamery which we’ve turned into end tables in the breezeway.
Some of our other environmental practices include:
•A two day minimum for all guests to reduce environmental impact. This is particularly important at DaddyRoys's B&V since we wash all our linens between guests.
•Energy efficient light bulbs
•Ceiling fans in the living room, breezeway, bedrooms with additional floor fans available. Enjoy the great Burnside breeze and reduce the need for air conditioning in the summer months
•A good old fashioned clothes line located in the back yard just off the laundry room.
•No Smoking. There is a strict no smoking policy within the B&V.
- This house belonged to my Aunt Ahgie. She was very dear to me. I would ask you to kindly take good care of the property as it has sentimental value to me. We request a copy of your government issued ID for all guests who will stay at the B&V 7 days prior to your booking start date. Thank you.
Upcycling and Recycling furniture along with eclectic decorating are my passions. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin spent most of my adult life in Europe. I travelled the world and therefore I know how important it is to stay in a place that has character along with the extra little comforts included.
