Bed & Breakfast

The home is known to be one of the finest pre-Civil War antebellum homes of its style and type in the entire state.  Built in 1833 by Colonel Bolton who was originally from North Carolina and served as the first warden of the the Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City. The home is located 3 miles past Wardsville on Route W and stands high on a bluff overlooking the Osage River Valley.  The stone used on the exterior of the house is said to have been quarried from the Osage River bluff, sent by boat to St. Louis for dressing and then returned to be used in building the home.

The house is at the site of the historic General Sterling Price crossing at Bolton Shoals.  From here, General Price proceeded towards Jefferson City with the intention of invading and capturing the city.  History tells us he changed his mind later and decided to spare the city.

Experience this quiet getaway in one of our 3 beautiful guest rooms located on the second floor of the home.
