Come Home to the Belvedere

The Belvedere’s Guest Rooms

We have four distinctly different guest rooms at The Belvedere Inn, each of which provides a unique experience. Take a peek:

The Alfred Lamb

This room is named in honor of the first owner of the house, and is designed for  those who want-to-be King or Queen or whatever royal personage one imagines! Sleep on a huge, king sized, four-poster Ralph Lauren bed reminiscent of faraway places – mysterious, sultry, lavish, decadent. Relax on overstuffed eggplant velvet chairs while watching TV or reading or contemplating how in the world all the stuff in the house gets dusted! (Sorry about all the exclamation marks – I get so excited!)

The Lucy Munger

Lucy Munger RoomThis guest room is named in honor of the wife of the second owner of the house – Lyman Munger. It combines a bit of whimsy with a lot of comfort…two double beds – one brass, one iron, -with two overstuffed chairs for relaxation or nodding off, combined with mixed painted furniture, and a fabulous Tabriz rug. Fun for the girls or for a couple who like plenty of space…this is our happy room! (Not to imply that the others aren’t happy – it’s just that this one is a bit happier- oh, you’ll just have to see it)

Start at $150 for one; $185 for two.

Scoundrel’s Inn Guest Rooms


Henry’s Room

Henry's Room

We dedicate this room to Henry, a 36-year-old Black man who, in 1870, lived with Alfred Lamb, the owner of what is now The Belvedere Inn. While we do not know that Mr. Lamb owned Henry in 1860, we can be certain that Henry was enslaved by someone at that time. His work made Hannibal possible.

Decadent! Scrumptious! Dream away in this luxurious king-sized mahogany, hand-carved Royal Fortune Montespan French black lacquered platform bed from Fabulous & Baroque! The ultimate in Royal treatment. Sip wine to the roaring gas fireplace! Refresh with a soothing two person, walk- in shower. Read a book, watch TV and simply relax. You will be soooo happy! How fun!!

Jenny’s Room

Gevene's Room

This room is named after the dear slave that Mark Twain’s family “lost” to William Beebe in 1840. Beebe was an unscrupulous slave trader who sued Clemens and received Jenny as chattel from the Sheriff’s sale. Beebe was just one of many early “SCOUNDRELS” who owned this piece of property during its first 100 years. 

But today, this room is an oasis of serenity with a huge king-sized black metal bed with a burlap bed skirt…beyond comfy chairs for chats, wine or your favorite game. The light in this room is lovely – soft and pearly even in the heat of summer. A little bit of country with a little bit of chic. More importantly, there is an en suite bathroom in white subway tile – large enough for two. Once guest called them shower cabins. I think I’m going to steal that!!

In addition, Scoundrels Inn provides a lovely common room for lounging plus a complete, “tiny” kitchen for guest convenience.

Salli’s Room

Salli was an 11 year-old African American girl who lived in the Lamb household in 1870 as a “domestic”.  According to my friend Faye Dant, the director of Jim’s Journey, (the Hannibal African-American history museum) tho’ Salli was not a slave in 1870, she was most certainly born an enslaved person. It was common practice for slave owners to breed their slaves in order to produce more workers and we assume her young age in that occupation was reflective of that horrible practice.

The room is in the oldest part of the house – a timber-framed structure dating to the 1830’s which had no foundation & no water, just a small chimney for heat…but today there is a fantastic, hand-made Jenny Lind bed, great reading chairs, private bath with tub, and a lovely private porch for reading, chatting, sipping wine or coffee…your own private sanctuary. Our sweetest spot! For one person only.
