This bed and breakfast was a fantastic value and came with a high end breakfast that exceeded our expectations. We were more than impressed! We were able to find serenity in the middle of the Mizzou campus within walking distance to downtown and the trails. The innkeeper was there to make sure our stay was perfect. The living quarters were... More

This property is beautiful! We stayed in the "Textiles Room" and let me tell you - I did not want to leave the bathroom! I could have lived there. The beds were gorgeous, the room was cozy and so comfortable. It was quiet, clean and a perfect place to spend the night. Downtown Columbia is a short walk away and... More

We can hardly wait for our next stay at Gathering Place. From the warm greeting to the lovely breakfast, our entire stay was cozy and comfortable. The location was perfect as our main purpose for the weekend was riding the Katy Trail and exploring the downtown area. (both are about a mile from the Inn) A+ to the Innkeeper and... More

I spent two nights at the Gathering Place while I was interviewing at University of Missouri, and loved my stay. The room was nice and homey, and the B&B had tons of extra little touches - bottled water, coffee, and granola bars available at any time, chocolates left for guests one night. The breakfasts were amazing as well - and... More

Every good thing (and I haven't read a bad thing) you read about this B&B is true. It's charming, each room or suite is unique in decor, the place is immaculately clean, the breakfast is over-the-top good, Debbie, Marc and the staff make you feel like a VIP, it's centrally located, and they even roast their own coffee!

Never have I a been a B&B kind of guy. But The Gathering Place has converted me! Debbie and Marc are consummate innkeepers. The accommodations are charming and comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious. (Seriously, this is seriously good food.) Plus every morning presents an opportunity to meet like-minded, purpose-driven travelers as well as University of Missouri faculty. The Gathering... More

My wife and I had a perfect stay at The Gathering Place. The facility was nice, clean, and comfortable, and location is perfect as it's right next to the Mizzou campus. The service we received was excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts. I would highly recommend anyone stay here for a relaxing, enjoyably getaway!

The Gathering Place is a B&B, but the privacy of each room makes it elite in its class. Debbie is a magnificent host and cook. The location is superb for University of Missouri events as it is within walking to all of campus. The house is kept in top form and is immaculantly clean. Debbie and her team make this... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in Oct 2015 while we visited our daughter at Mizzou. The Wildlife Conservation Suite was wonderful, the location was perfect (included parking), and the breakfast was a wonderful start to the day (our daughter walked down from Gateway and joined us for just an extra $10). The code to get in... More

We stayed here again because of our excellent first visit. The breakfasts are simply grand. The downstairs common areas are decorated tastefully, but not in an overly romantic and distracting way. We walked into the District for dinner two nights -- it is a fun, easy walk through the MU campus. The Gathering Place is a unique B&B.
