Very interesting old house with a lot of great architecture. Becky was a great guide. Really loved our visit and was glad we decided to stay and see it. Could open just a little earlier but being you can stay there I understand the reason for not.

1 hour tour of a historic mansion which is one of the grand old homes of Hannibal. The tour emphasizes the people who lived there and their stories rather than a seemingly endless recitation of what object was made where and by whom although there is some of that as well. Much work has gone into preserving the interior including... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Rock Cliff mansion. Warren was a wonderful tour guide. He shared a great deal of information about the home and the furnishings of the home as well the family of the original homeowners. We have toured many magnificent homes and this 116 year old mansion ranks at the top of our list. Not... More

This mansion is a great example of historic architecture. One of my favorite features was that most of the rooms had photographs of how they looked when occupied. It's a beautiful home with many organizational features that are considered "innovative" today. There are also rooms available for bed and breakfast stay, but we didn't stay here, so can't comment. Our... More

We walked from the historic area around Main Street in Hannibal, up Bird Street to the mansion. It is mostly an up-hill walk, but it was fun and interesting to see the area. Upon our arrival we joined a tour of the mansion led by Becky. She was a wonderful guide who really knew a lot about both the house... More

Becky was our guide on this trip and I say this trip because I have visited on five separate occasions. I see something different every time I have gone. Becky was very informative and answered any and all questions. I would recommend a visit or even a stay in the B and B. I know I will be back.
