My husband and I stayed at the Garden House this past weekend and it was everything I could have hope for. They hotel has a vast history and the owner, Chris, was happy to share all of the wonderful stories. Breakfast was wonderful and the room was so comfortable and relaxing. We are definitely coming back to enjoy this experience... More

The wife and I stayed here for her birthday. When we arrived Chris the owner told us that with just one other room booked that night he had upgraded us to a nicer room. We looked at the room we had booked (North) it would have been fine, but the room he put us in was much nicer highlight was... More

Granddaughter (14) and I stayed at this B&B one night in a really beautiful room (SW side) with a small, clean shared bath. The sister of the owner greeted us at the door and gave a brief history/tour of the home. Each room was full so we had nice company at breakfast, except for the sister who'd made us feel... More

The first thing we noticed was that the yard was overgrown and the house needed paint. The steps leading up to the front door are dangerous and uneven. We were "greeted" by a woman who never introduced herself and made us feel like unwelcome relatives. We were shown to our room and were offered a "cooler" room - since it... More

Sorry for the guest that did not know hot from cold on the shower faucet...left is always hot, right is always cold...when she called so distressed about the hot water at 10 pm at night, she was absolutely sure there was not any hot water; I assured her there was and did she try the hot water on the sink?...

Expect boarding house rules. You are there to helm them prosper; don't expect to be much pampered. Our room advertised a view of the Mississippi. No Way! Generally tidy, though there were dust bunnies under the bed and in the corners. The bed canopy filtered dust down on us all night. They tolerated our dogs, though not with warmth.

People from California..traveling with two great smaller dogs...left their pets in the room while they dined out...the poor dogs were barking so loud that these guests had to be called at the restaurant they were at to let them know to come back and check.... where the boarding house rules (what ever they were talking about) are not at our...

When we arrived at the B&B we were greeted by the host who obviously did not have a vested interest in the B&B, or she just doesn't seem to care about reacting with the guest. Phyllis was just not much help and when I stated that if we had any further questions I would call. She just said good luck... More

Dear "not what we expected", Housekeeping was informed of the "dust' your little white six pound dog found as she crawled underneath the cherry-wood sleigh bed in your room. Thanks for leaving the 'dust' at bed side along with the soiled white towels you used to wipe something up with. Coffee was and always is available to guest at 8am... More

. . . but were a bit disappointed in Garden House. Homes of the period typically had dark interiors but, with all the window coverings pulled shut, it just had a gloomy feel. Perhaps if Christmas decorations were not on display (in June) and other decor was pared down a little, it would appear more open and inviting. Furniture in... More

We" love our B&B", and for the past 12 years have enjoyed opening our home to the public. With 80-90 degree days, of course the window shade coverings in the bedroom areas were drawn (sunny side of house). Guests may raise the 'shades' at any time in their room. The common areas of the house have lace curtains that let... More

This lovely old house was built in 1896. When we walked in we felt like we had stepped back in time. It was fun to stay in an old house in Hannibal that was very near to the Mark Twain historical sites. Here's their website information. You will need to contact them by phone to make your reservation. http://www.gardenhousebedandbreakfast.com/home.html We... More

We've stayed at many bed and breakfasts, but never has the host made a delicious breakfast with fresh fruit, muffins and a delicious egg and meat dish, then sat down to enjoy part of the morning with us. Chris made us feel right at home. A bonus, dinner at LaBinnah! One of the most delicious dinners we have ever had.... More
