  • Rockcliffe Mansion has wonderful history and tales! You might get a cold chill visiting some areas! If you like tours of historic homes it's a must see. 
  • Great, food, wine and cheese reception, tour, it was all good! we took a walk in the neighborhood and felt like being transported back in time to Mark Twain's Hannibal.

  • I was very happy with my stay at Rockcliffe Mansion for many reasons. Not only is this a beautiful building with many original pieces and antiques, but the hosts/owners (Juan and Warren) were great! The view out of my windows in the Governess' Quarters were excellent, I could see the Mississippi, all of Hannibal, and Lover's Leap easily. Wine and cheese were served in the early afternoon and our host accompanied us on the porch with another great view of Hannibal, and they gave us an excellent dinner recommendation. Breakfast was great, and I would recommend making the trip to stay in this historical place.
  • A truly great Bed and Breakfast. We were greeted by Juan when we arrived. He gave us an interesting tour of the mansion and furnished us a beautiful suite for the night. They are gracious hosts and provide a wonderful breajfast in the morning,. Well eorth the money,
  • loved the tour and he was great telling us the history. loved the decore and furniture and loved all the wood in the home. it was wonderful. .o cant express how much i loved the experiance
  • I loved the tour. I learned alot about the history of the house, and the family that lived there. The house is beautiful on the inside although it needs work on the outside. The tours help to pay for the restoration and other costs. I was also delighted to learn that it is also a bed and breakfast. I have not stayed there but I hope that I will have a chance to sometime. I suggest that you check it out.
  • We have stayed overnight in the Bed and Breakfast and it is a wonderful experience. Very nice hosts very good homemade breakfast and very clean. It is amazing to be able to stay in a museum. And the tour with learning all the history about the home makes it just that much special.
