Gathering Place Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 3 Columbia B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 21, 2013

In brief, my room and the large common area were spotless and perfectly maintained. I think my room was the smallest offering and yet still had a small sitting area separate from the bedroom. Very private and quiet. The full breakfast was excellent - Deb the Innkeeper even wore a colorful cook's outfit. Hospitality students were very carefully folding napkins and placing silverware at the next table. They appeared to genuinely care for perfect placement of each utensil, etc.

High value for the money. Strongly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at the Gathering Place when we visited our son at Mizzou. The location was outstanding. Minutes away from downtown and delicious food destinations and just right around the corner from our son's apartment. The breakfast was delicious and even allowed for our college student to join us in the morning to eat, which was very nice. We will be staying at the Gathering place again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Third floor room. It had an extremely comfortable couch and a skylight in the bathr...

I have stayed at the Gathering Place twice now. Deb and her students offer the one of the best accommodation experiences I have ever had. The breakfast menu is delicious and wonderfully customizable, the bedrooms are comfortable and just luxurious enough, the bathrooms are spacious and include a fantastic tub! It is an amazing combination of feeling pampered and comfortable. Always my first choice in Columbia.

Pros: Amazing breakfast, the bacon is insanely good, the coffee is excellent, fruit is delicious, single-serve coffee maker available at all times of the day and night; super great hostess; very attentive staff; very clean, very comfy; very warm - even on the coldest night of the year. Beautiful furniture. Every room has its own thermostat that is super accurate and easy to program.

Cons: No curtains (this is an odd oversight given that every detail seems to have been carefully crafted in putting this place together), located on a busy road so it is a little loud at night, there are no lengthwise mirrors in at least one room. I am a super, super light sleeper so these things probably don't matter to most people.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs and a night eye mask if you are a light sleeper.

This was our first time staying at “The Gathering Place” in Columbia Missouri and will not be our last. The quality and cleanliness was above and beyond our expectations. The breakfast was plentiful and scrumptious. The location is perfect for moms and dads visiting the school(s) or visiting students of the school(s). With only 4 or 5 rooms it is difficult to get reservations on busy weekends such as family weekend or homecoming but well worth it if you are successful. We’ll be back.

Our stay could not have been better at The Gathering Place. The place was immaculate, the food was wonderful, and the manager and chef was so friendly and engaging. The inn is beautiful inside and out. We stayed there over a football weekend and they even provided each person with beads and a pom pon. I would definitely stay there again!
