Come Home to the Belvedere

The Belvedere Inn Amenities

We have told you in several places about our rooms and the amenities within each. Now we want to let you know about the rest of what you can enjoy when you stay with us.

Billiards Room & Parlor

Mark Twain did not sleep here but he played pool here. So, pick up the sticks and enjoy a game of pool in our beautiful Billiards Room. When you are finished, head over to the billiards parlor and ease into the leather chairs for a drink, a chat or a game of chess, gin rummy, monopoly or scrabble. Games, adult coloring books and books to read are there for your enjoyment! In the fall and winter, the billiards parlor holds a wonderful gas fireplace. We will automatically turn it on once the weather turns brisk.

The Porch & Pavilion

If you have not engaged in porch sitting, you are in for a treat. Sit, relax, watch the people – have coffee, read a book, or chat with friends or even strangers as they walk by. Your blood pressure will drop and you will wonder why you have not done this before or more often.

The Pavilion is this fantastic retreat that my husband built – loaded with comfy chairs and couches – a fan to cool you in the shade and even a plug if you cannot unplug your phone or tablet long enough to enjoy your little vaca. Just the perfect spot.

The Dogs Gus & Gomer

For the past five years we have had two great dogs: Gracie, a Newfoundland and George, a Golden Retriever. Over the past couple of years we lost both of them and missed them so terribly that we brought another two dogs home.

Now we have a new greeter, Gomer. In early September of 2020 we adopted Gomer, a Great White Pyrenees mix, from the Quincy Humane Society. He is now four years old and acts like an old man – which we assume is due to his horrible puppyhood. He can be friendly but is often skittish. He does like his back scratched. But if you simply want to ignore him, he’ll be fine with that too.

Enter Gus – the latest addition – a year old Golden Retriever who LOVES people and wants to sit on your lap and kiss you and is obnoxious… BUT ohhh so lovable! We are in dog school and he is learning how to be an INN dog but it is a challenge. I’m convinced he will be a great dog just as soon as he turns two and burns off some of that Golden hypermania!!

Personal Services

If you need something extra, don’t hesitate to ask. We’ll order flowers, chocolates, dinner reservations, theater tickets, – whatever you need to make your stay in Hannibal enjoyable – we will accommodate. We have add-on packages in addition to the normal room rate, so look for those in our service menu. In the meantime, let us help you in your quest for a wonderful Hannibal stay! Be creative…it’s more fun for all of us! We need at least 48 hours advanced notice to create all the following little indulgences for you!!

Take a Look:

Lovely Bouquet!

Flowers: Brighten up your evening with an arrangement of Fresh Cut Seasonal Flowers. Adorned in a glass vase and accented with a coordinating ribbon! Your arrangement will be waiting in your room upon arrival.

Wine toast!

Wine: We have a lovely selection of red and white wines. Since I prefer dry to sweet we stock more of those and I am partial to Josh Cellars wines. So if you need a sweet red or white just let me know on your reservation and I’ll take care of it and you!

Stam’s Chocolates

Chocolates: No getaway would be complete without chocolate. We are beyond fortunate that we have one of the most fabulous chocolate shops in the Midwest right here in Hannibal – Chocolaterie Stam – where we get our sweet indulgences. You will be in heaven with just one bite!!

Yep – all you have to do is push in the code and you enter the house. Each house has a separate code and each room has its own key, locked from the inside. There are key chains with The Belvedere Inn written on them and our address. Should you find that you have walked off with one of our keys, please send it back via snail mail, in a padded envelope.
