Everything was first class. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was very tasty with lots of choices. The location was wonderful. We were right across from the campus. The overall experience was excellent.

My husband and I have stayed several times at The Gathering Place, most recently for the True/False Film Festival which takes place just a few blocks away. Breakfasts are great, service by Mizzou hospitality students is always fun, and the rooms are beautifully appointed and comfortable. We'll be back!

We were visiting our daughter at Mizzou, and she had mentioned a really charming-looking place very close to her dorm that she often passes on the way to class. We booked the Missouri History room, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The location is perfect, walking distance to campus and town. It is beautifully and tastefully... More

My daughter was checking out Mizzou, and this was the perfect location from which to do so. What a friendly, and beautiful, location! Breakfast was a real treat. The room was warm and relaxing. Bed was more than comfortable. We enjoyed everything and look forward to visiting again!

It has been a total of 10 years visiting Mizzou, through three of our daughters college years, it is always our choice to stay The Gathering place. It has improved and become a fine lodging establishment, under Mark and Deb's management. We cannot say enough how it is always a wonderful vacation experience. The food and table settings could not... More

I've traveled all over the world for both business and pleasure and this is one of the nicest, cleanest, friendliest and most comfortable establishments I've had the pleasure of staying in.

The house is located across the street from campus and within walking distance of downtown Columbia. I was very impressed with the interior of the house, well appointed and tastefully decorated. Breakfasts were delicious and made to our order. We would definitely stay again.

I was new to the States on a new job at the Uni Hospital and wanted a place to spend a few days before I got on my feet. Thank goodness I found this place.
