We recently stayed at the Dauphine which is a lovely B&B. It's very comfortable and a beautiful location. Sandra was great and made us feel very welcome. She gave us helpful recommendations for dinner places that were fairly close, and breakfast was very good with many options from which to choose.

However, I had no idea the trains ran that often and that close to the Dauphine. Luckily, they provided earplugs which helped us get a good night's sleep. If you are a light sleeper, this would not be the place for you.

Just got back from a weekend at the Dauphine. Totally satisfied, planning on returning with friends. I know they won't be disappointed. Very clean, interesting furniture everywhere, beautifully and lovingly rehabbed, excellent breakfast, and best of all were the hosts, Sandra and Scott. You can see in all the little details that they really care about their historic hotel.

We booked 2 rooms for a Saturday night. My wife and I and her sister and husband. We attended a wedding during the day and reception that evening. Wish we could have enjoyed the front porch off our bedroom more. For an old hotel (listed on the register of historic buildings) the bath facilities were excellent. The bed, linens, and pillows were excellent also. The thermostat controlled the AC perfectly. Yes, you hear the train and whistle, but I did not need the ear plugs. It added to the unique quality of our stay. Sandra and Scott were very friendly. We enjoyed sharing common experiences with them during breakfast. Sandra stated the menu for breakfast and each of us chose what we wanted. I remember the fresh farm eggs, thick bacon, and signature cinnamon oat pancakes. The pancakes tasted like stone ground oat flour; very good! Experiences at B & B's are five times better than commercial hotels.

Room Tip: Choose a queen bed type room if you need it. Some rooms have regular size beds.

Location is awesome, a little burgh tucked away in the river valley of the Osage. Scenic drive to get there, historic hotel with a great feel for the days of old. Stopped here after a day at Oktoberfest in Hermann on the way back towards SWMO. Rooms were great, beds very comfortable and there is plenty to be explored in the parlor. Sandra is one heck of a breakfast cook and storyteller. NOW, that being said, I failed to fully realize the gravitas of past reviewers when they talk of the trains that go by the B&B. So to forewarn any future patrons of the Dauphine, the trains are literally 150 feet from the hotel, pass by what seems to be every hour, on the hour at night, and lay on their horn as they blow through Bonnots Mill. Did not take long after settling in to understand just why in the world they put complimentary earplugs on the nightstand, which, unless you are the heaviest of sleepers, don't do a whole lot. I would recommend an ipod and earbuds, along with some good sleeping tunes to do the trick. I would go back, just a little more prepared for the nightly audible onslaught.

Room Tip: All are within train distance, but Annie's Room was nice with porch access.

The owners have done so much to this very old hotel. I think they said it dates back to 1840. The furnishings in each of the rooms are authentic.. Some rooms have access to the second story front porch where you can sit out and watch the trains go by, or watch the goings on of this little town. With all the foliage, we were unable to see the river, so it'd be fun to go at the end of the fall. We would certainly stay here again should we be traveling through Central Missouri.
The trains go by very often- coal, containers, boxcars, auto carriers, Amtrak, and more. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Room Tip: We stayed in Annie's Lavender room and were pleased.
