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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

The Gathering place is a beautiful gem in Columbia Missouri. It's immaculate (seriously, you cannot find a speck of dust in this beautiful house), comfortable, gorgeous rooms and the food is incredible! The location is terrific -- close to campus, downtown, etc. The amenities in the rooms are terrific. And I love the fact that the students in the College... More

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... More

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... More
