This place was amazing. The owners John and Julie were amazing. The cabins were clean and spacious. I would highly recommend a stay at the Mansion you wont be disappointed. Well worth the money. I will be staying again soon.
We chose the Garth Mansion as a one night stop-off during a long road trip, and how I wish it had been for longer. Even just driving up to this house at night, seeing the beautiful gothic structure appear out of the dark trees, was breathtaking. We arrived late, but were greeted warmly by John and given the full tour. He even gave us a fabulous recommendation for dinner downtown, which was exactly what we needed. All rooms are beautiful, but the Rosewood Suite was my first choice, and was warm, traditional and cosy. I felt like a queen. In the morning, we were treated to good coffee and Julie’s home cooking, including her incredible strawberry yoghurt muffins. It was a delicious breakfast, and just what we needed to set us up for the long drive ahead. Before we left, we took time to feed carrots to the friendly alpacas and llama in the grounds! Such a fun treat! This is an exceptional accommodation, spotlessly clean, exquisite attention to detail, and lovely hosts. I hope to make it back to Missouri purely to visit again.…
We stay in Hannibal periodically due to work events and have stayed in multiple bed and breakfasts in town as we enjoy trying new places and meeting new people. We have always had good experiences and yummy meals in this town, but I must say that the owners of Garth Woodside went above and beyond for us. The amenities were perfect, the breakfast was delicious, the mansion was beautiful, and the owners graciously assisted us when the weather turned to an icey mess. Thank you for an enjoyable weekend--we will be back:)
My wife and I were traveling from Colorado to Ohio. My wife found this place as a point of interest along our way. The building, owners, grounds, food and accommodations far exceeded our expectations. We stayed in one of the cottages on the grounds near the llama enclosure. The cottage was pristine, with ample space and private hot tub. The main mansion is beautiful and maintained with so much care and attention to detail. While searching for dog friendly hotels our search was very limited, and those we had found we underwhelming, until we found this gem. We can not recommend enough!
Atmosphere is amazing. Cabins are cozy. Main house is magical. Alliterations aside ... we only spent one night here because we were travelling and this was the spot we chose to rest. The consensus between myself and my wife was the same: we wished we could stay longer. I don't know if we'll ever find ourselves in this area again, but you can believe if we do, we will definitely remember our experience here and would love to do it again!
