An impromptu road trip in late March took us to Hannibal, MO and a 2-night stay at Rockcliffe. The house is beautiful and unique, with a very interesting history. The proprietor was extremely gracious and welcoming. I will recommend this spot to friends and family, and we would like to return when the weather is a little nicer! Thanks to Juan and Mary for a memorable visit. Dave and Beth Williams - Morris, IL

We were greeted with a warm smile and handshake by Juan, the owner of Rockcliffe, and treated as friends from the moment we arrived. We stayed in the Magnolia room and had a spacious area to relax with our wine and cheese, after walking the streets and hills of beautiful Hannibal. It is a charming home full of history and intrigue in every step. Trinkets and reminders of an era gone by delight you in every glance. Juan has painstakingly refurbished a 4 decade old neglected home and kept century old items out and available for our viewing enjoyment. We felt at home the minute we arrived and Juan gave us the opportunity to look around the entire house, before we toured. I highly recommend staying here, for the quiet ambiance, incredible view atop Hannibal hill, a great breakfast and a very hospitable host!
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed our Mansion. I thank you also for rehoming our place. Juan.
