Our stay at the Gathering Place could not have been better. The location on MU campus is ideal. The rooms were lovely and had everything we needed. Breakfast was plentiful. The owner and staff made us feel at home. We look forward to staying again when we visit our daughter at Mizzou.

A gem in Columbia. We loved staying at The Gathering Place, when available, the past four years while our son completed his B.A. at Mizzou. Thoroughly outstanding: Deb and Mark and the student staff have made this bed and breakfast our home in Columbia. A converted historic house with comfortable modern elegance and immaculate beautifully decorated Missouri historically themed suites...

The Gathering Place never disappoints. I have stayed there numerous times, and each visit is special and exceeds my expectations. The rooms are clean and welcoming, and the staff is cheerful and accommodating, and the breakfast fare and dining experience are fabulous! Not to mention, the location is ideal and a short walk to anywhere in town or on campus....

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...

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...
