Every year my girlfriend and I stay (4th year in a row) at the Gathering Place. We have a week long schedule of on-campus classes and it is so nice to relax and unwind at the Gathering Place. The food is fabulous and it is walking distance to the University, so we don't even have to hassle with driving!

This was our 2nd stay at The Gathering Place. We wished we had more time to enjoy the front porch. The beds were comfy and there is lots of room to relax. It is right across from The University of Missouri and only 6 blocks to downtown Columbia. The breakfast is lovely too.

We won a gift certificate at the Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre for The Gathering Place. We only live about an hour from Columbia so do not usually stay overnight there. TGP was absolutely beyond expectations. The atmosphere is elegant down to the last detail, and it gave us a wonderful measure of privacy that can be lacking at B&B's. Breakfast... More

This is our 2nd stay at The Gathering Place and it was most satisfactory. The combination of convenient location, beautiful facilities, good service, and reasonable rates makes it the best place to stay in Columbia. The breakfast was elegant, plentiful, and delicious. We always enjoy interacting with the Mizzou students who staff the B&B. Thanks, Deb, for another great stay.... More

The Gathering Place is a very updated, spacious B&B owned and run by the University of Missouri. It is adjacent to campus and only a short walk to The District, the heart of Columbia and Mizzou dining and nightlife. The staff are very attentive and friendly, and provide an opportunity to interact with some University students. The breakfast is right... More

We stayed here due to its proximity to downtown Columbia; there is free and secure parking provided at this property. I believe we had the most affordable accommodation and I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was. The room was also very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower had good pressure (although water is soft). We liked... More

This is the best place to stay in Columbia. It is an amazing bed and breakfast next to campus. I had the best night's sleep and breakfast was incredible. I enjoyed meeting the other guests and Deb, the innkeeper, makes this a warm but not intrusive stay. And for those worried about being that close to campus, they have their... More

Such an inviting place to spend time. Deb and her staff are wonderfully welcoming and helpful. Stayed in the downstairs room this time, and it was huge and comfortable. Even with a blizzard outside, I was toasty inside! Breakfast was yummy. Love the location. Can't imagine staying elsewhere! Very professionally run, and just plain fun to enjoy. I feel like... More

My wife and I loved the Literature room. Deb was gracious and friendly, even though we arrived about 30 minutes early. Room as clean, breakfast was filling and delicious. Beautiful property inside and out. As soon as we sat down for breakfast staff was right there waiting on us and attentive to our needs. Wonderful stay and will definitely be... More

A marvelous bed & breakfast with luxurious accommodations, excellent service, and delicious food. The rooms are huge and comfortable with many amenities. The manager of the inn and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.
