Help me find the ideal 5-7 day teacher-led meditation retreat close to an airport and/or close to Kansas City!

I'm interested in getting trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction through the Oasis Institute and one of the requirements is several 5-7 day teacher-led silent retreats. Which is great, because I've always wanted to attend meditation retreats but haven't been able to excuse the time. However, I live in Kansas City and as far as I can tell, the Midwest isn't exactly the hotspot for meditation centers.
I'm willing to travel (plane or car), but ideally would like to find a site where I could take a shuttle or an affordable taxi ride from the airport to the meditation center.
I'd also like a place where I can have a single room. I snore and I don't want to inconvenience others by keeping them awake.
I am particularly interested in mindfulness approaches, metta and radical acceptance. I'd like to avoid the retreats where recordings are played in place of active teaching.
