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

So a friend and I were riding the Katy Trail and took the spur trail to Columbia because we thought it would be cool to visit a college town. And we booked this B&B. WHAT a great choice. We found it without problems and stored our bikes on the back covered patio. We were welcomed and introduced to the house... More

Just back from a great weekend visiting friends at Mizzou, and 3 of us stayed at The Gathering Place. All of us agreed it would be our first choice for lodging in Columbia in the future. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the staff is friendly, helpful, accommodating, and made us feel very welcome. It's in a very convenient location... More

This is a very beautiful and luxurious high quality B&B owned by the University of Missouri and staffed by students from the hospitality program. It is conveniently located across the street from the university with nearby frat houses and walking distance to the charming downtown area with its many restaurants, bars and shops. The Katy Trail is easily accessible and... More

I rented this room for my wedding day/night. I asked for an early check in at 1, so myself and my bridesmaids could have a place to get ready. The room (the Chemistry room) was everything I had hoped for. It was beautiful, elegant, and the staff was all really sweet and accommodating. I will highly recommend this B&B. Not... More

Everything about the Gathering Place was wonderful and we can't wait to return. The room was comfortable and exceeded our expectations and the location can not be beat. Deb does a wonderful job welcoming you and making sure that you are comfortable and the breakfast was delicious too. Highly recommend. 5 Star you won't be disappointed.
