Garth Woodside Mansion

The Garth Woodside Mansion is a charming family-run hotel in Hannibal, Missouri. Named after the owner, John Garth, the bed and breakfast is located in the heart of Mark Twain Country and just a few meters from the Mark Twain Museum, which was also his boyhood home. It was also frequented by Mark Twain himself, and guests are able to stay in the very same room that he stayed in when he visited the mansion.

This elegant 1871 Hannibal Inn features eight beautifully appointed guest rooms and three separate cottages, all of which are furnished with period decor and antiques and enjoy modern amenities such as jetted whirlpool tubs in the en-suite bathrooms and customized bathrobes. The mansion is home to a full service bar and extensive wine list with wines from around the world and is surrounded by 36 acres of spectacular gardens and grounds with a gazebo, walking paths and plenty of wildlife and birds.
