What an amazing find in the heart of Columbia's Mizzou Campus! This B and B has to be seen to be believed. Our "room" had a gorgeous bedroom, bathroom and living area with high ceilings and tons of natural light. The furniture and appointments were all first rate: very comfortable and most attractive. The common areas were open concept, had...

I don't like to write reviews for this place because I want to keep it a secret! But, it is such a great experience, that I want to make sure it stays open forever! This is my third time staying at The Gathering Place and it always provides a special feeling! Check in is easy and very welcoming by Deb,...

Stay here and feel like a BMOC - Big Man (or Woman) On Campus. Partly because you're on campus. Also because the personal attention of innkeepers Debbie and Marc is both familiar and professional. It may be difficult to believe this little B&B is an alternative to The Tiger or The Broadway. But not if you've stayed here! At check-out,...

I will never stay in a hotel when in Columbia again. The Gatherer Place is 5 Star in my book and will be my place to stay every time I visit! We got stuck in Columbia, MO after a business meeting due to an Ice Storm last weekend. I called 7 hotels! All were booked. We decided to try a...

The Gathering Place exceeded our expectations. We stayed for two nights to attend a sporting event at Mizzou as fans of the visiting team. We had never been to Columbia and were pleasantly surprised to find a warm, welcoming place to stay adjacent to campus. The management was wonderful and greeted us as soon as we arrived. We were given...

We were here for one night. This is a Greek Revival style home located on a main drag right across the street from the U. of Missouri campus (about a 10-15 minute walk from the main campus square, and only a 5 minute drive from downtown Columbia). Be aware that the busy street is divided by a concrete barrier here,...

Gathering Place would be a great B&B, regardless. The fact it is owned by the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources foundation, and staffed by MU students under the direction of a professional innkeeper makes it very special. For anyone traveling to Columbia related to MU, I highly recommend it. Even if you're just passing through,...

This was our second stay at the Gathering Place. Our first stay was in the Wildlife Conservation Suite and the most recent stay was in the Literature Suite. Each stay was comfortable and relaxing. The attention to detail is so impressive and the staff are welcoming, respectful, positive, and thorough. The pride that each staff member takes in creating a...

My wife and I stayed here one night during a trip from Phoenix AZ to Philadelphia, PA. We had read some other positive reviews online and decided to give it a try. This was our first experience with a B&B and the Gathering Place set a very high bar for all B&B's in our future!! From the moment we checked...
