This 1880's style Victorian mansion is lovingly maintained, with comfortable beds and modernized period style private ensuite baths. The breakfasts are great, seasonal menus. A good choice for the single traveler, as the location is quiet, the home is secure, and the guest is a person, not a room number. Carthage is a pretty, historical little town well worth the...

Lovely house, comfortable bed! Food was very good. Peace and quite! Lots of coffee around and I really enjoyed this! They were nice enough to let us drop off our bags early and also agree to rearrange schedule if need be to let us stay another night after I accidentally injured my hand and the injury was totally my fault....

Thank you for your kind words about your stay, we were glad to let you in several hours ahead of your scheduled arrival. We do have all kinds of first aid items, but we were only asked for ice, which we supplied several times throughout the morning while waiting to make your breakfast. If we had realized you wanted more... More

I love a B & B. It is a wonderful way to get a real feel for the area visiting. I love the history of this old place. We spent 3 nights here while on a visit for a wedding in Joplin. We prefer to experience the area vs. just staying in a hotel/motel. So, the innkeepers were personable, and... More

My wife and I travel for ministry along with our 2 year old. This bed and breakfast was very accommodating. Considering that we are also vegetarians, we usually pick around the breakfast options.

We stayed in this historic home on a tree-lined street overnight in December on our way to Amarillo, roughly following Route 66.

We stayed at the Grand Avenue for one night. Jeanne upgraded us to a downstairs room which was kind as we didn't have to take the luggage upstairs. Our room had everything we needed.

“Mark Twain room: If you NEED absolute darkness, be advised that this room does get some car lights at night, but it is not a busy street.”

“Only one room downstairs but the 3 upstairs are nice. Alcott is small for little people not 6'5" but Mark Twain and Nathaniel Hawthorne are roomy. Also room between each one of them makes it private not door to door like a hotel. Room Air Conditioner in each and ceiling fan. Very quiet”
