This was a gift to us from our son and his wife...Wonderful time...arriving on our motorcycle...our weather was iffy from the beginning but all went great. We were on the third floor and stayed in the "Hillside" room. John showed us around the mansion and explained things as we went. Julie was not present but at their business downtown and it is a wonderful "kitchen" store. We had plans to meet up with others in Hannibal but we decided to enjoy a cup of coffee on the beautiful front porch overlooking the manicured lawn before leaving for the evening. They are in the process of building another covered pavillion which one can view from the front porch.
Our room the "Hillside" (third floor) was quaint and had everything one needed and more. Although the bathroom is small they have provided all the comforts of home...toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, blow dryer, etc. Loved the added touch of the old time nightshirts...I decided to go back in time an wear...fun fun. Robes are very comfy and available to purchase (will do that the next time). We never heard anyone from any other room...seemed very private. They had ceiling fan and one could adjust temperature in their rooms. Our window overlooked where the lamas are fenced.
Breakfast on both days were yummy. Love the homemade juice and the presentation of the food is great. No complaints at all on the selections. Maybe next time though we will luck out and get the french toast. The quiche was very good though.
There was cold drinks and large selection of hot drinks available 24/7 and we enjoyed taking often out on the porch. Due to the rain off and on we never was able to make walk around the grounds but did venture out to see the llamas.
If one enjoys quite, secluded and away from the hustle and bustle but with the ease of getting into town...this is a great stay. Hannibal is filled with great selections of "to dos". Lets one take in the history of old and embrace "back when".
In clicking below the rating of services....we did not of course do fitness center but unable to remove once I clicked on them.
