We were greeted by the winding driveway and were awestruck by what awaited us at the top. This slightly tarnished diamond is a perfect example of what was, and the beauty that is still being exposed daily. We were greeted at the top of the steps by the owner and shown to our room. Our heads were on a constant... More

If you love history, old mansions, 1899 architecture, can do without TV, then this may work for you. While the mansion needs more restoration work, it is well worth a visit. The host was excellent. The breakfast delicious. Nice view of the Mississippi from the east side.

I can't imagine a better place to stay in Hannibal. Rockcliffe is a stunning late-Victorian mansion, with beautiful and very comfortable rooms that are extremely well maintained. Much of the furniture is original to the house. The Mansion is well-located and the staff was friendly and very helpful in making dinner reservations. The trolley tour of historic Hannibal was also... More

While traveling with history and architecture enthusiasts on a family road trip between Kansas City and St. Louis, we found Rockcliffe Mansion B&B the perfect peaceful stop to learn from, and live for a moment, in a gracious by-gone era. Our private tour began with wine, cheese, and fruit on the side veranda with a magnificent, high point view of... More

If you want to enjoy the full 19th Century experience, and feel what it was like to be one of the wealthiest Missourians in 1900, you must stay at Rockcliffe Mansion. I loved the exquisitely hand-crafted Pottier & Stymus furniture. I saw similar pieces, but not quite as grand, in the furniture galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in... More

Spent this night at Rockcliffe last week with my husband. What an amazing B&B. I've stayed at many B&B's and there's nothing like it in the Country. Its like stepping back in time. The most memorable part of the experience is having breakfast in the formal dining room that the original family dined in, furnished with all their furniture from... More

The new owners wanted to buy and restore a historical residence to its former glory; they are about halfway through the restoration having restored the interior so that the bedrooms and other rooms have either original or period furnishings, but at the same time are very comfortable. After dinner in town and a walk on the river and around town,... More

This home has the most fabulous woodwork and furniture I have ever seen, supposedly built to be the finest home in Missouri, and I believe it. In fact it rivals the finest homes and furnishings I have seen ever. Pocket doors and windows, marble fireplaces, impressive stairway leading upstairs, and the beds which look beautiful on the website are even... More

Rockcliffe Mansion is incredible! Every room has been restored with the original artifacts of the Rockcliffe family (or antiques from the same time period when it was not possible to use the Rockcliffes' items). Every room is beautiful and unique. Visiting there is a trip back in time that shows how the upper class lived in the early 1900's. On... More

We stayed in the Magnolia Room and found it delightful. The period fixtures and furniture made it seem like stepping back in time. We wandered from room to room several times and saw something new each time. If you love old historic homes and exceptional hospitality be sure to give the mansion a try.
