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 other glowing reviews are spot-on, so I won't rehash the same other than to just say you should stay here if you're fortunate enough to find an available...

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. The booking online was so easy despite my crappy Indian internet connection and a crappy credit card. This place has a lot of history with...

We have stayed in many BandB's around the world and we would put this one in the top 5 (it would be the best if it had better views like the Cliffs of Mohr, castles or ocean views like we have seen from our window at other B&B's). but for Columbia MO it is a highly recommended stay. The staff...

By far the best B&B we have stayed at. From the room, common areas, the staff, the breakfast, overall appearance and cleanliness I give this place 5 stars. Nice touch on the chocolates. Staff was professional and friendly. We would certainly stay here again. Oh....and such a bargain!

We've stayed at B&Bs all over California and in Europe. The Gathering Place was, hands down, in the top 3 we've ever been to. It had a corporate feel to it, but the place was immaculate with nice wooden floors. We stayed in the suite, which had these old vintage looking lounge chairs, but were actually recliners. I promptly fell...

We looked so forward to staying here again. This isn't just any B & B !! When you stay here, you feel special and taken care of. The rooms are all unique and very clean. Beds are wonderful and the linens are exquisite. Bathrooms are equipped with everything you need. The chocolates in their cute little boxes given to you...

This quaint B&B is located directly across the street from Mizzou, so if you have business there, you can't beat it for convenience. The price is pretty good too. The street outside is pretty busy, but I had little trouble crossing it. My room was right on the street, but I could hardly hear it. The B&B is located amidst...

My friend and I completely enjoyed our stay at The Gathering Place. As University of Missouri alumnae back for a reunion, we loved the on-campus location, which placed us in the center of lots of happy memories from our student days. Our friends at the same event who stayed in more generic properties out on S. Providence Road on the...

I will get it out of the way first....it is located next to a sorority/fraternity (not sure which) who were very loud and kept me up. With that said....it would have been a five star stay hands down. Pros: Location (right across from the university), the manager (Debbie), cleanliness (inside and out), the character (well well appointed), the internet (worked...
