We enjoy the rooms and... More

We stayed here in the fall. The breakfast was great, the beds were comfortable and it's close to Boonville, Jefferson City, and Columbia. The host was really entertaining and made us feel at home. The house is full of antiques, which gave it a unique atmosphere.

The rooms are filled with beautiful period furnishings that makes one feel like they have stepped back in time. The accommodations are very comfortable and the breakfast is delicious. The... More

We stayed here after seeing a play at Arrow Rock's Lyceum Theater. Don and Joe made us feel at home and were very accommodating. The mansion is beautiful and we enjoyed the tour Don gave us in the morning after breakfast. You can tell how much Don and Joe love this place and it's history. The breakfast was delicious, warm...

Our group stayed here. We were met with warm hospitality and great accommodations. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The dinner we had prepared was delicious and well presented. The breakfast was incredible and was enough to take us many miles down the Katy trail. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, this is it.

I stayed here with friends who were building a house in the area. Could not have had a better time! Just reiterating what everyone says- Joe and Donn are great. Breakfast is made see from scratch and I was stuffed both mornings as I couldn't pass any of it up! There was an unexpected scare involving a manequin dressed in... More

We very much enjoyed our stay, Don and Joe are like visiting old friends, very warm and welcoming. The old mansion is fabulous and full of history and antiques. They are lovingly restoring this gem of the riverboat era. We can't wait to go back and see the progress!!

Fun stay in a historic B&B in Franklin Missouri. Room was spacious and very comfortable. Delicious breakfast (cup of fresh cut fruit, homemade cinnamon rolls and quiche). Don was a great host who shared lots of stories of the house and family from his extensive research. Definitely recommend!
