Great place to stay. Stayed in the Governess' Quarters. Loved the historic feel. Breakfast was phenomenal and the tour was very informative to say the least. The ornate architecture was beautiful throughout the mansion. If offered be sure to check out the view from the widows watch! #thankswarren.

When you enter the Rockcliffe mansion, you step back 119 years in time into the finest home built in 1898. Instantly you're surrounded by Mark Twain's era; (he visited the mansion). It's easy to imagine the widow Douglas living atop this hill while she gazed at the riverboats on the Mississippi River. Spending two nights at the Rockcliffe is an...

You really will be sleeping in a museum. Really amazing restoration done on this place and the couple running it are great. They're putting every penny back into restoration and preservation. The architecture and history of the place are really one-of-a-kind. Can't recommend it highly enough. Be sure to take the tour, it's complimentary as a B&B guest and well...

The house is truly a time capsule. One of the few chances you will have to spend the night in a museum. Wonderful house,furnishings, and history. The hosts were very nice and the tour informative. Breakfast was excellent. Hope to stay again.

Rockcliffe Manson is a beautiful Victorian/Edwardian experience. My son and I stayed for two nights. He slept in the Cruikshank bedroom and I stayed in Hellen's room and shared the adjoining bathroom. Since it was only the beginning of the tourist season we were the only ones staying on those nights and in the evening we had the whole place...

The house is beautiful and the service was great! We spent the night in the governesses room on the third floor. Everything was so pretty. The tour offered was also very interesting, but if you have the chance stay the night!

Rockliffe Mansion is an impressive museum home that doubles as a bed and breakfast. Overnight guests get a free tour of the home, which is not-to-be-missed. Tour Guide Warren (co-proprietor) told the story of lumber magnate/Scottish immigrant John J. Cruikshank who built the home on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River at the turn of the century. After his death...

This B&B is a destination in and of itself. We were greeted by our hosts Warren and Juan with a personal tour of the house--a Mississippi River treasure delivered straight out of the turn of the century. The house contains original Tiffany glass and chandeliers, a Turkish Folly room, and unbelievable original furnishings, fixtures and woodwork. Essentially you're staying in...

We got in very late, but the owners we super accommodating, got us all set up in our rooms. The rooms themselves are gorgeous, lovingly maintained turn of the century style rooms. The bathroom fixtures are all original and simply stunning. Breakfast in the morning was superb, best French toast I've ever had. We took the tour, fascinating history, the...

What an extraordinary experience. How often do you get the chance to stay in an 1800's mansion with so much of the original furniture, the fascinating history and is in fact a museum. Warren and Juan were fantastic hosts who obviously take great pride in their home. They were gracious in sharing so much information not just in the tour...

“We stayed in the Gladys Room which was very nice for the price. The more expensive rooms are, in most cases, worth the extra cash. I believe its the presidential sweet that is the nicest of the rooms. However, all of them were very nice and homey. ”
