About the property

Family accommodation for a weekend or week!

We built this suite to accommodate families as a luxury alternative to a hotel. Completely renovated this 1850's cottage in 2014. It's walkable to Historic Downtown and many of the key attractions yet private and secluded. Magnificent view of Lover's Leap, close to the caves and Sawyers Creek Family Fun Center. 2/2 perfectly set up for a family of 4. Private balcony with barbeque. W/D DW, fully equipped kitchen.

About Joe Anderson

John (Wesley) was born and grew up in Hannibal. After leaving for 30 years to pursue a career in IT Project management, he and his partner returned home for a visit in 2012. The allure and history of the city captivated them and they began renovations on 521 Walnut to convert it into a two-unit Air BnB rental. Subsequently, they acquired the former F&M Bank building downtown and launched Bluff City Theater, Northeast Missouri's only professional theater which has been dazzling locals and visitors since 2014 with its innovative productions. In the ensuing years, they have continued to acquire and renovate many of Hannibal's historic downtown structures for a variety of uses and have become an important part of the amazing Renaissance occurring in Missouri's most literary city.

Joe Anderson purchased this house in 2013

Why Joe Anderson chose Hannibal

When we purchased this property, it was nearly derelict as were many homes in the historic downtown. After a complete gutting and renovation, it has become a model for others. The neighborhood is still "in transition" but is safe, with mainly families and older couples living on the street.

Don’t let the outside fool you

  • 5 of 5

The neighborhood looks a little dowdy-a house a couple doors down has a tree through the roof but...this home is a fun piece of history. It is beautiful inside and has everything I needed. It was very comfortable and located near historic downtown Hannibal.

Overall Nice Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Nice addition as advertised. Comfortable beds. Plenty of condiments to supplement cooking if desired. Bath products provided. Only negative is VERY limited hot water for bathing; a lager tank or more robust system would help. Got 1-1/2 showers. Address that concern and a good place for a night or more.
