The quilt shop in Buckner held a retreat at the Iron Horse Hotel. They rea;;y went out of there way moving tables and chairs to accomadate 16 quilters! Tim brought dinners downstairs to see the display Rita Feely had of her crazy quilting and see what all of us was working on. Ther was always plenty of fresh coffee and oh what food we had. Baked chicken (very moist) home made bread peach cobbler oh yes even the salad with blueberries walnuts an just the right amout of dressin! Tim and Debbie make you feel very special as soon as you walk into there home away from home! We all hope to return next year !

We had visited Blackwater in early Summer when the heat index was 114 degrees, we dined for lunch (Monte Cristo Sandwich suggested) at the Iron Horse Hotel and loved the place, promised we'd all come back. We were traveling with friends and we all agreed we'd love to stay at the Hotel for an overnight.

A few months later we did just that and stayed weekend of October 13, and we had the best time. The owners love what they do and it shows in all the details. The train theme is perfect and the old time furnishings and restored interior make you feel like you have stepped back in time. Early morning coffee on the front porch was so peaceful, the town is very quiet on a Sunday morning. We had a fabulous breakfast in the back garden courtyard, surrounded by tall old trees, blue skies, fall leaves all golden.

A beautiful plate of fruit is presented first, apples, orange slices, blackberries, strawberries,
and hot coffee....followed by a fabulous breakfast pizza with cheeses and sausage and crust is
perfect, after that comes the signature breakfast dessert. Imagine a cross between a New Orleans Beignet and a Funnel Cake made by Angles from Heaven, all dusted with powdered sugar. We were in heaven eating that along with more of their piping hot great coffee. It is a joy to stay at a B&B where you can tell the owners cater to all the finer details of what makes a B&B special. A++ Top notch, all good things. We love the owners and loved our stay. We will return. I must add that we also had dinner at Iron Horse which they have a great menu, the four of us had the salmon, the grilled chicken breast, and the pork chop entrees. Sides of baked potato, green beans cooked to perfection, the salad with the raspberry vinaigrette was excellent. These people are so talented at all levels and offer hospitality that is so endearing you cannot wait to return. We enjoyed the whole experience and trust me....you will too.

Room Tip: Any room is great, we had chance to peek inside each room, lots of antiques, train theme, the train going by at night is ambiance, beds are so comfortable you'll either sleep through the train whistle or fall right back asleep. A+ on everything.

When you choose to stay or dine at the Iron Horse Hotel, expect to step back in time when the customer was the first priority. The food is made from scratch, and cooked to perfection. The service is excellent, also once you have experienced it, you will be thinking when can we return to this place that makes us feel so special !!! We had saw the write up on the Bucksnort Saloon in the rural electric paper, and thought we need to check this out sometime. We first came to town in the middle of the week as we were passing thru the area. The little town was very impressive, with the Old Wind Mill in the center of the street, as as you first drive up. And on each side was a row of well kept older buildings. Where the bank used to be, is now a telephone museum. Several antique stores, one being an old school house. We saw very interesting early day items. The Bucksnort Trading Post was a neat place to shop, All the townspeople were very friendly and always ready to help you out on what activies were planned and when they were scheduled. We had lunch at the cafe on the west side of the street. It was real good. The saloon wasn't open that day but the trip wasn't wasted. We went down the street to the Iron Horse Hotel and looked through the front windows and was impressed with what we could see. Walked around the corner and saw a lady unloading groceries, found out they took over managing it several weeks ago. We then asked her if we could see a room? She gladly gave us a tour of all the rooms, as each room had a name and was filled with antique furniture and furnishings of a by-gone era. As we toured each room we would look at each other and smile as our 40th anniversary was coming up the next weekend. We wanted to spend it, in a different setting than we ever had before. We decided on a room called " The City Of New Orleans". Reserved the room for the next weekend, we were both excited and looked forward to it coming up. We have never had better service, finer food or more pleasant atmosphere, than Tim and Debbie provided on the evening of our 40th anniversary. As they were finishing up, we invited them to set down with us. They talked about their plans and dreams for the hotel. Before the evening was over we felt we had met two very special people whose friendship we will always cherish!! Everything about the town sparkles, but the real jewels, are the people like Tim and Debbie who will go above and beyond the norm to make your stay and dining experience very memorable. Thanks again Tim and Debbie for all the memories you gave us on our 40th anniversary. We will see you again soon! Dennis and Donna Christensen Bevier, Mo.

My wife and I spent Saturday night at the beautiful Iron Horse Hotel. Everything about this hotel is spectacular. The lobby, or should I say parlor, is gorgeous and filled with museum-quality antiques. The guest rooms are so beautiful, each with it's own personality and full of genuine antiques. We took the opportunity to view most of the rooms and they are fantastic. My brother and sister-in-law came over to the hotel Saturday afternoon and spent the evening with us. We all dined at the hotel's wonderful restaurant. The menu was great and the food was perfection. Portions are large and items are perfectly seasoned just the way you like them. The home made bread was fresh from the oven and still hot when served. Even though we had plenty to eat with the main part of the meal, we saved room for some wonderful home made pie. Once again the slices were large and the taste was great. It also was served still warm from the oven. We found the room comfortable and charming. This morning our breakfast was incredible. It started out with juice and coffee followed by a large fruit plate with generous amounts of watermelon, red and green grapes, slices of orange and a couple strawberries. This course was followed by scrambled eggs and toast made with the wonderful home made bread and topped with apricot jam and grape jelly. Other breakfast options are available, too. At this juncture I thought we were sufficiently full when they brought us a breakfast beignet. We had heard of beignets before but had never tried one. Needless to say, it was super good. Every bite of both meals was perfection, and let me say that the service was great, too. My wife and I are both lovers of history and antiques and the stay at the Iron Horse left us wanting more. My wife says she is looking forward to returning again. If the restaurant were closer to our home in Alabama we would become regulars! The food is just that good. This establishment and the great inn-keepers, cook and wait-staff are highly recommended. The town of Blackwater is also quite interesting with several nice antique stores. Blackwater is located about a 15 minute drive from the picturesque town of Arrow Rock which is very much worth visiting also. The Iron Horse makes a great place to stay when in this mid-Missouri area.

Room Tip: Check out the Hotel's website which shows pictures of each room. Every one is different and filled with period antiques. It is really a step back in time with all the modern creature comforts you could want.

We decided to have Blackwater ,Mo as out half way meeting place with our family and stayed at the Iron Horse Bed and Breakfast overnight .When we arrived ( a Thursday Evening)no one was around so we called the phone # listed on a note on the door to the B&B," We're busy down the street ,but you can go on in and up to your rooms and make yourself comfortable!" We DID! and wandered all over the place to see all the individually themed rooms they had ! These are great!!! So comfy ! Felt right at home !... We were in the front rooms close to the RR tracks and I must say the train is quite LOAD and frequent ! Middle of the night wakup at 3 am , then every 20 minutes through 6 am ! Since it was Mid week ,No breakfast is served so we wandered across the street to the local cafe and had a wonderful homecooked breakfast that was "included in our room price" ..It turns out they also manage the B&B ! I Love small towns! Hung around and visited Antique shops and trading post and very impressed by the warm hospitality fo all we met !!!

Room Tip: maybe AWAY from the track side is better ???( noise)
