For a Unique Lodging Experience Stay at the 
While Visiting the Lake of the Ozarks!
If you prefer a unique lodging experience check out the 1877 Victorian Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast in Versailles.
The 1800’s Experience 
Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast Inn Keeper Doris Hitly has graciously opened her two-story home for guests to experience what it was like to live in an 1800’s mansion at the turn of the century. 
In true Victorian Style, the front of the house features gingerbread detail on the porches. 
A two-story screened in veranda at the back of the home allows guests to quietly relax and enjoy fresh air and conversation.
A stay at the Inn is therapy for the soul

Each room is a showcase of antiques, collectibles, and Victorian d├ęcor.
In the Wild Rose front parlor, a fireplace and comfortable couches welcomes guests. An old piano and a wall of books entice one to possible evening entertainments. 
The wallpaper is soft sage with rosebuds on vines that never fade or fall. Below, the rug mirrors those vines, except the buds have blossomed into full blooms. Such design choices prove Inn Keeper Doris Hilty’s eye for detailed elements that speak to each other. The result is beautiful.
A beautiful open staircase, with a walnut newel post, ascends to beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with a private bath, one with a lovely claw-foot bathtub-shower. 
Queen Ann-leg dressers and comfortable antique beds beckon guests to a restful night’s sleep. Thoughtful touches pamper guests with chocolates on your pillow, a soft-fluffy bath robe to snuggle in and hand sewn postage stamp quilts. 
A sitting room can make your room a suite and private porches are also available on request.
Everywhere there are freshly cut flowers. Their scent sweetens the air; their blooms bring gardens to life indoors. These come from Doris Hilty’s sister’s garden near Versailles or from the Inn’s own gardens. They are but one more example of the many gifts a great hostess provides to her guests.
Doris Hilty is a charming hostess with infectious hospitality.  She invites guests to the island to chat while she cooks breakfast. It is served in the dining room on a table carefully set with good china.
We are sure you find that pairing together the Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast with a Day Trip to the Lake of the Ozarks will not only be fun, but pure nourishment for the body and soul!
