My husband surprised me for my birthday with a 2 night stay at the Garth Woodside Mansion. The mansion was beautiful. Owners John and Julie took extra care in making our room ready. My husband ordered flowers, wine, goody basket. Everything was ready when we arrived. Breakfast was excellent. Julie gave us great pointers on touring the area. Their gracious...

As you come up the drive the stately Garth Woodside Mansion sits at the top of the hill surrounded by woods. The grounds are beautifully manicured and landscaped. You are taken back to the 1800's with a feeling of wonder about events that had taken place in this slightly eerie looking mansion. Then the innkeepers, John & Julie, greet you,...

My new wife and I stayed in the Dowager House at Garth Woodside Mansion Estate in Hannibal, MO over Veterans Day weekend (November 11/12/13) for our honeymoon. We loved it! It was very peaceful and quiet and the amenities were great! I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the area!

Absolutely beautiful! We were were welcomed by John and Julie who were the best hosts. We stayed in the main house which is absolutely gorgeous and welcoming. We felt like we had the place to ourselves. Breakfast was one of our favorites. John and Julie make you feel right at home! Already planning our next visit.

We have been to Garth Woodside several times. The house/rooms are amazing. The hosts, Julie and John, are fun to visit with. They are a big part of the reason we keep returning. Julie is an excellent cook, breakfasts are delicious and John picks the Garth berries every morning for the Garth juice ;-) We highly recommend staying at Garth...

We had the woodside trail cottage behind the mansion and it was perfect. So spacious and private. The Jacuzzi on the private back deck was wonderful. We didn't want to leave! John and Julie are wonderful people and great hosts. Looking forward to going back.
