Fully restored 1871 Second Empire Victorian mansion, nestled in 33 acres of gardens, rolling meadows, ponds and woodlands. Original antiques that fill the parlors, library, dining room and sitting room. Play the 1869 Steinway square grand piano featured in the magazine 'Steinway'. Savor the solitude of natural surroundings or enjoy beautiful architecture inside 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 complementary upon check-in. Relish staying where Samuel Clemens chose to be a frequent overnight guest. We offer eight guest rooms, all with a private bath in the rooms. The Rosewood Room offers the "most expensive bed" in the state of Missouri you can sleep in. The John Garth Room has the best view of the gardens, and Avie's Room is best described as beautiful! Always rated as Missouri favorite B&B.

Lots of amenities including walking trails, paths, whirlpool tubs and hot tubs. Come feed the llamas and alpacas some carrots and they'll you forever. Even bicycles you may borrow.
