A History of Hospitality

In beautiful Hannibal, Missouri

From the moment we saw the Garth-Woodside Mansion, we knew we wanted to preserve it and to carry on its rich history of hospitality.  The mansion was built as a country home, a place to unwind and to entertain guests. Since the 1980s, the Mansion has welcomed guests in great style. The previous owners, John and Julie Rolsen, elevated the bed-and-breakfast experience, and we aim to meet or equal that standard.

More than just a place to sleep and a good breakfast, the Garth-Woodside Mansion is a step back into a time when the pace was slower, when pampering guests with the best a home has to offer was a privilege. Garth Mansion has consistently been THE Bed and Breakfast of the state of Missouri providing, the ultimate luxury and friendliness visitors always appreciate. Come stay with us, and explore Hannibal and the surrounding area. 

Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend, a bit of pampering on your next business trip, or a the wedding of your dreams, we look forward to seeing you.
