The classic Missouri manor welcomes you and wraps you in warmth from the moment you enter the front door and the view of the Two Mile Prairie from a window is virtually the same as it was in the 1800's. Whether the landscape is ablaze with fall color, wrapped in a blanket of snow, or bursting with wildflowers and freshly cut hay, you can be assured you will create memories of a lifetime here. Imagine gazing up at thousands of brilliant stars, then falling asleep in a feather bed by the light of a flickering fire and waking to find freshly fallen snow.
Proceed to the bed chamber to settle into a private retreat, lovingly decorated with family heirlooms and collected antiques to reflect the genteel lifestyle of the mid-1800's. The charm of the past is carefully coupled with the comforts of the present by offering private baths, air conditioning and fireplaces. Indulge in the romance of a canopy bed and the comfort of a bountiful Missouri country breakfast served by candlelight in the gracious dining room or on the porch on warm summer mornings. Awake to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee served for your early morning enjoyment.

Guests are greeted by a glowing fire in the library on wintry days or fresh flowers from the garden in summer. In cooler weather, guests gather in the library by the fire to share stories of the day's adventures and enjoy late afternoon snacks and tea before setting off for dinner.

In summer, the broad side porch serves as a gathering place where guests can sip lemonade or iced tea as they gaze across the meadows and fields. Experience having breakfast in the crisp outdoors on a warm Missouri summer morning. (Mouse over the image)
Every season brings abundant wildlife to the farm�deer, wild turkeys, Canada geese, ducks, and golden eagles. Much more than a place to stay, Wettershaw Manor is a place to rekindle your love affair with life.
Guests enjoy casual conversation over an early morning cup of coffee or tea in the parlor before breakfast with sunlight filtering through the lace curtains and highlighting the period antiques.
