My husband and I went with my in-laws based on the reviews of this site. We were looking forward to being able to understand about the time the mansion was thriving. The house was magnificient but the air was very stilted. Hardly any air movement unless you went into the rooms with the A/C. The guide was hard of hearing... More

The mansion itself is impressive but the story of it's past makes this a must stay. The mansion was completed around 1902 and lived in until the owner died in about 1927. His elderly wife simply locked the doors and left to live with a daughter. The neglected building was scheduled to be torn down and was saved about 10... More

Very interesting tour. The guide , who lives there, was very knowledgeable and interesting. There was a lot of glass made by Tiffany. Price for adults was $15.00. It also is used for a bed and breakfast.

This house is incredible. We liked the authenticity of the furnishings and wall coverings. The guide and owner was very informative and knew the history so well. It is one of the very few tour homes where you can tour all of the floors. Well with the price.

My wife and I stayed at the B&B, we got a very nice tour after hours. It is an interesting site because of the fact that all the furniture is original to the house. After the patriarch died the family just moved, taking only clothes. (thus the reason for all of the furniture) It was closed for years, re-opened, I... More

I took the guided tour on April 30, 2014. The guide was the owner himself, and it was a treat to be shown this magnificent building and hear all of its history as well as contemporary challenges. The mansion is large, built around 1900, so it is in the opulent style in vogue at that time. However, the mansion was... More

The tour included about three floors. They are working on the fourth floor and the basement is off limits due to modern kitchen equipment for the bed and breakfast. Very nice house. Met the owner briefly. He does need to paint the outside. Enjoyed it.

This spectacular mansion sits on a bluff above Hannibal and is well worth a visit. It's also one of the top 5 B&Bs in the USA. Out guide was one of the peopel who bought it and is restoring it, most of the original furnishings are still on site, and there are bits of very ingenious 19th century tech, like... More

What a beautiful home filled with rare antiques and Tiffany glass. The tour will not disappoint, but why not rest your head among all this luxury? We did, in the Sage room on the top floor. We were cozy as clams. We sadly missed out on the welcoming cheese platter since we arrived late, but breakfast made up for that.... More
