For the $100 we spent to stay here, this place was definitely not worth the money. Although Columbia doesn't have much--or anything-- to offer in the way of high-end hotel accommodations, this B & B doesn't do anything to fill the gap. The room was simple and kitschy, as many faux 'antiquey' bed and breakfasts are. The proprietors were accommodating, but you are definitely in the bible belt here, with admonitions against having any alcohol in the room and a request to check out 1/2 hour early on Sunday mornings so that the innkeepers can attend church on time. If you're comfortable with this, go for it. It felt a bit creepy to us, and we were relieved to be out of there. We were in Columbia for a quick visit to the Mizzou campus (conveniently located just across the street), but the idea of anyone actually going to this place for a romantic or 'luxurious' getaway seems a bit odd...

In the response to this guest, and I’m referencing their comment about having to check out early on Sunday, we had no idea we would later become victims of bigotry comments towards us because we are Christians and would like to be able to attend church, preferably on time.
Especially since we thought this guest was a very wonderful guest; pleasant, kind and the type who prefers B&B’s over hotels. It is not uncommon for owners of B&B’s to request that a guest check out early on Sundays.
In regards to our ‘No Alcohol’, yes we do not want alcohol in our home. It’s our home, our business and our policy. If a guest wants to drink inside a B&B, we are more than happy to recommend a few B&B’s in the area that gladly allow it. They just need to ask.
