Spent two nights here getting my child settled in to college. We were later than expected in arriving, and it was no problem. A very clean and comfortable room awaited us, and a lovely breakfast the next morning. I look forward to returning!

This was my third stay at The Gathering Place. It is my first choice when staying in Columbia, MO. It is quiet, comfortable and has outstanding food. Each room has a different theme. I've stayed in three of them. All are wonderful. Breakfast has choices for anyone - vegetarian to meat eater - and they roast their own coffee beans.... More

Simply the ONLY place to stay if you're in Columbia, MO. Everything was truly remarkable. The soft bed, the great location, the electronic room locks, warm owners, and delicious custom breakfast. What a B&B should always be.

Just a beautiful place to be to enjoy being comfortable and at peace. I would definitely recommend this place to stay overnight or longer. Excellent breakfast and service. Clean and luxurious. Loved the whirlpool bath and guest necessities provided.

Service was exceptional. Food was outstanding. Was visiting Mizzou, so location was a big plus when selecting this location, but we were really pleased that we picked The Gathering Place. So impressed we have booked several more dates when we come back to visit.

We stayed at Gathering Place going and coming from Denver to Charlotte and both times enjoyed a wonderful welcoming environment, delicious breakfast and lovely room. Highly recommend it! We were exhausted and the room was beautiful and relaxing. A little bit of street noise but it did not bother us in the bedroom. Debbie was very nice as were the... More

Our stay at the Gathering Place could not have been better. The location on MU campus is ideal. The rooms were lovely and had everything we needed. Breakfast was plentiful. The owner and staff made us feel at home. We look forward to staying again when we visit our daughter at Mizzou.

A gem in Columbia. We loved staying at The Gathering Place, when available, the past four years while our son completed his B.A. at Mizzou. Thoroughly outstanding: Deb and Mark and the student staff have made this bed and breakfast our home in Columbia. A converted historic house with comfortable modern elegance and immaculate beautifully decorated Missouri historically themed suites... More

The Gathering Place never disappoints. I have stayed there numerous times, and each visit is special and exceeds my expectations. The rooms are clean and welcoming, and the staff is cheerful and accommodating, and the breakfast fare and dining experience are fabulous! Not to mention, the location is ideal and a short walk to anywhere in town or on campus.... More
