Ahhhh Autumn, in the Hannibal hills...

Yes, Autumn has arrived. Last night we lost some of our pretty annuals to the cold (about 33 degrees). The problem was the windchill. We're hoping that the tropicals will survive tonight in the gazebo. They need to be sprayed before bringing them inside and it was raining yesterday. I don't know about you...but I think it is way too early for freezing temps. Thankfully this cold wave is going to be short lived and weather will warm tomorrow a bit. Leaves are turning quickly and when we have a cold snap, colors come on fast. Since we have no vacancy for weekends in October, don't delay in booking your weekday getaway while you can still enjoy the colorful trees before the leaves drop. If you want to lock in this year's prices for weekends next October, we can certainly book you now for the "Leaf Peeper" season next year. Remember that our Fall Folk Life Festival is the 20th & 21st of October next year. You can still come to enjoy the festival this year 10/21 & 22, but premier lodging is impossible to find at this late date. So book an October weekday (with year round discounted pricing), drive to Hannibal and enjoy the colorful foliage, tour our quaint town, relax in our Victorian Queen, enjoy a restful slumber, and Judy and Norm will fix you a delicious breakfast. Maybe your entree du jour will be her *New* Apple French Toast with Cider syrup. Yummmmmm
