Jack was a very gracious and accomodating host. Very unique accomodations- renovated old barn, very rustic and "country". Plenty of added room with kitchen and living room community space.

We stayed at the Red Barn Inn last Thurs. Fri. and Sat. night Oct 30- Nov. 1, 2014 and we could not have stayed in a nicer place. Jack and Becky are wonderful hosts, very friendly and fun to visit with. The Inn is really a lovely home.The breakfast they served every morning was delicious. If we get the chance to go back, we would stay there again and recommend to anyone going to Hannibal, Mo. or that area to book a room, you will enjoy it very much. Thank you Jack and Becky for making our stay so enjoyable. Jim and Judy Wells
