This is a very beautiful and luxurious high quality B&B owned by the University of Missouri and staffed by students from the hospitality program. It is conveniently located across the street from the university with nearby frat houses and walking distance to the charming downtown area with its many restaurants, bars and shops. The Katy Trail is easily accessible and...

I rented this room for my wedding day/night. I asked for an early check in at 1, so myself and my bridesmaids could have a place to get ready. The room (the Chemistry room) was everything I had hoped for. It was beautiful, elegant, and the staff was all really sweet and accommodating. I will highly recommend this B&B. Not...

Everything about the Gathering Place was wonderful and we can't wait to return. The room was comfortable and exceeded our expectations and the location can not be beat. Deb does a wonderful job welcoming you and making sure that you are comfortable and the breakfast was delicious too. Highly recommend. 5 Star you won't be disappointed.

This was our first visit to the Gathering Place and it was wonderful. The location was what caught our attention because it is within walking distance of our son's Schurz Hall as well as the Mizzou game.

Breakfasts phenomenal - shouldn't be missed. Would love...

This was our first stay at The Gathering Place and will definitely return when next in CoMo. We were late in arriving but it was no problem and our room was extremely spacious, comfortable & very clean. The breakfast was superb with plenty of choice and served professionally but with friedliness by Mizzou catering & hospitality students. The owners were...

Spent two nights here getting my child settled in to college. We were later than expected in arriving, and it was no problem. A very clean and comfortable room awaited us, and a lovely breakfast the next morning. I look forward to returning!

This was my third stay at The Gathering Place. It is my first choice when staying in Columbia, MO. It is quiet, comfortable and has outstanding food. Each room has a different theme. I've stayed in three of them. All are wonderful. Breakfast has choices for anyone - vegetarian to meat eater - and they roast their own coffee beans....

Simply the ONLY place to stay if you're in Columbia, MO. Everything was truly remarkable. The soft bed, the great location, the electronic room locks, warm owners, and delicious custom breakfast. What a B&B should always be.

Just a beautiful place to be to enjoy being comfortable and at peace. I would definitely recommend this place to stay overnight or longer. Excellent breakfast and service. Clean and luxurious. Loved the whirlpool bath and guest necessities provided.
