My sister and I stayed here for an overnight "get-away" and enjoyed it. The location is perfect for exploring the U of Missouri campus. Several nice restaurants are also close by. Breakfast was fresh and good, rooms were comfortable (we had the Blue Room and the Balcony Room) and the deck was perfect for talking. We enjoyed our time there;... More

This was my first time staying at a B&B in Columbia. I would recommend University Avenue Bed and Breakfast as a great alternative to hotels. It's especially convenient if you're spending time downtown or on campus; both are easy walks from here. It's easy to get anywhere in town from here by car. Pros: Great location near campus -- I...

We stayed at the University B&B when we attended a recent winter wedding. Though we didn't realize it, since we booked it online, the B&B was across the street from the college. HOWEVER- it turned out just fine! They had an off-street parking lot (rare in college areas) so our vehicle felt safe; we didn't have any problems with noise... More

I grew up in the area and wanted to bring my husband to town for a brief visit. This home is close enough to the downtown area/MU campus that you won't have to drive anywhere. The owners are welcoming, helpful, gracious, good cooks, and just the right amount of conversationalists. The homemade soaps are wonderful, too. We stayed in the... More

We stayed here while moving our son into his apartment for the school year. We had originally planned on staying for three nights but hit a snag and needed to stay an extra night.

Walking distance to campus and restaurants - and hosts provided restaurant suggestions. Parking (and snow shoveling!) a bonus. Delicious breakfasts. Comfortable bed with extra blankets, pillows, and space heater provided. Movie selections appreciated. Water and soda down the hall. Loved the hot water/tea/chocolate available at night and actually all during a big snow storm. Lots of windows and sunshine. Really... More

We didn't get to spend many hours of leisure since my daughter and I were staying with them during a family emergency.

This bed and breakfast has a wonderful location, right next to campus and in walking distance to the downtown. The rooms are cozy, and the amenities are as described on the website. There is water in the rooms, snacks and sodas available, and (my favorite) mugs and hot water for tea/hot cocoa/cider in the evenings. The breakfasts are absolutely wonderful.... More

There are good bed and breakfast locations and there are wonderful bed and breakfast venues. This one is a wonderful B&B. You are only 5 blocks from the center of Columbia, so walking to dinner was extremely doable. Your hosts are happy to see you.
