Step back in time in this beautifully restored 1871 Second Empire Victorian mansion, nestled in 33 acres of gardens, rolling meadows, ponds, and woodlands. Relax among original antiques that fill the parlors, library, sitting and dining rooms. Play the 1869 Steinway Square Grand Piano. Savor the solitude of natural surroundings or enjoy beautiful architecture including the famed 'flying staircase.' Stretch out on the grand porch or hide away on the romantic second floor balcony. Afternoon treats with tea or your favorite beverage are complimentary upon check-in. Relish staying where Sa
Accommodations
Each of the rooms in the mansion offer a private bath with a shower. Some off whirlpool tubs and most have fireplaces. Queen sized beds in all but one room that all have hypo-allergenic feather beds that you will absolutely melt in. After many requests, you can now depart with a brand new feather mattress when you leave. Canopy beds, feather mattresses, best linens available, glowing fire...nothing can be closer to perfection than a few nights at the Garth Mansion.
Breakfast
The only thing that will lure you out of the wonderful feather beds is going to be the aroma of fresh breads wafting up the flying staircase. Several fresh only fruits are served with the muffins, breads or fresh baked rolls each morning. Always a hot entree and plenty of protein to balance out those carbohydrates and justify the extra servings you might be tempted to eat. Special needs? No problem, just let us know in advance, we love to spoil our guests. Oh, and of course, nothing but the freshest coffees and teas.
Dining
There are a couple of good dining places in the Hannibal area. One includes a former bordello in the historic district, Lula Belle's. The other is a true Supper Club of years gone by; they are both just a few miles from the inn and we would be happy to make reservations for you in advance.
Local Attractions
Coming to America's Hometown is a must for anyone wanting to delve into the history of Mark Twain or just see how life on the Mississippi was is years long since gone. The Mark Twain Boyhood home and his Museum is one of the most visited sites in the state. The Mark Twain Riverboat offers an evening dinner cruise as well as a day cruise up and down the Mighty Mississippi.
