We stayed in the chemistry suite while our daughter attended summer welcome orientation at Mizzou. The room was clean and well decorated. The breakfast was wonderful - apple soufflé pancake, bacon, hashbrowns and fresh fruit. The selection of teas for breakfast was outstanding. They offered bottled water and granola bars to take with us while walking around campus. The entire... More

We stayed in the Chemistry Suite, with a large King bed. I recommend this suite if you are partial to a firm mattress. Debbie is a wonderful hostess, and breakfast was delicious! Everything was very clean and comfortable. Thanks so much. I am giving 4 stars due to location on a busy street, but if you want to be close... More

We enjoyed the hospitality, superb cleanliness, and hearty breakfast. Convenient to campus! We would stay again, definitely. A relaxing experience, our room had everything a couple could possibly want.

Stepped out of the car and into a haven amidst the bustling Mizzou campus. Deb greeted us, showing us to the Textile Room. Very comfortable accommodations for three of us with two queen beds and a large en suite bathroom. Bring your appetite to breakfast. Breakfast is divine and worth savoring every morsel. See you again in August, Deb!

We stayed Friday and Saturday night of Thanksgiving weekend, which, it turned out, was a quiet time because the traditional big football game was held on Friday rather than the usual Saturday. We stayed in the (Children's) Literature Suite (which had no literature, by the way), on the second floor, perhaps the most private of the three rooms on that... More

We are just back from a two-day stay and I recommend the Gathering Place Bed and Breakfast to all who enjoy comfort, friendliness, and a delicious breakfast! It was a very pleasant surprise for us as we booked our room to attend a wedding in a nearby town—we weren't exactly sure what to expect. The room was meticulously clean and... More

Seriously....don't think twice about staying anywhere else if you are within 50 miles of Columbia, Missouri!! The Gathering Place exceeded all of our expectations. From the first conversation I had with Deb to make the reservation, until we departed after a second morning's legendary breakfast, we were completely blown away by the attention to detail. Our room was so spacious,... More

We had a really enjoyable night. Mark and Deb run a great place. The special for breakfast was roast beef hash. We could smell the roast beef when we arrived in the evening and couldn't wait to try the hash in the morning. It didn't disappoint! The Literature room was a great room. All the rooms are named after a... More

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!
