Built in 1893, our beautiful Victorian house, an icon in Mexico, Missouri, was once the home of Allen Percy Green, the owner/operator of the Green Refractory, a world renown fire-brick manufacturer. All our guests receive a gormet breakfast prepared especially for them from our very own recipes; all of which have a balanced blend of flavors that are a unique break from the traditional breakfast. Our ample common areas, featuring more than 5,000 square feet of space, in addition to our hot tub and sauna, provide a place to relax after a long day of sightseeing, or traveling, and guest's surveys reflect a nearly perfect 5 out of 5 in 10 areas, representing an average of 99.7% in customer satisfaction.
The beautiful grounds covering half an acre and stretching from the front of the house on Jefferson Street to the back entrance on Washington Street provide ample space to stretch out and have some outdoor fun. A multitude of fun things to do both within and outside the mansion provide plenty of entertainment during your visit. With five parks, six lakes and other outdoor activities such as Scattering Fork Outdoor Center, Binder's Hilltop Apple and Berry Farm, hiking trails, and fishing, Mexico offers ample opportunities for outdoor recreation.
In addition to outdoor activities, other attractions such as Presser Hall Performing Arts Center, donated by A.P. Green to the city of Mexico, Audrain County Historical Museum Complex, The Vault Gallery and Missouri Military Academy, to name a few, provide indoor entertainment. Many more attractions and museums, such as the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City and the Winston Churchill Memorial in Fulton, are located within 45 minutes of our bed and breakfast.
While we do not accept pets, we can provide information on two different pet boarding businesses that are near our bed and breakfast.
