My wife and I just returned from spending Valentine's Day weekend at this wonderful B&B in the heart of Missouri wine country. We were very warmly greeted by Adrian and Kate upon our arrival and were made to feel that this was our home away from home for the weekend. For our first night dinner, we had the fondue in the wine cellar. What a wonderful experience! The first course was probably the best salad that my wife and I have ever had. Kate was kind enough to give us the recipe for the great salad dressing. The fondue was a wonderful blend of various cheese, all done in the traditional Swiss method. The desert, a great dark chocolate tart, was amazing. On both mornings we had a three course breakfast, which left us needing only a very light lunch later in the day. On our last night, we had the four-course dinner in the Harvest Room, which was one of the best meals that we have ever had. Again, Kate and Adrian were very helpful in giving us some of the recipes. The Norton port reduction over the pork tenderloin was wonderful!
Adrian and Kate were very helpful in providing suggestions on the various wineries to sample and for various places around town. Their suggestions proved correct in each instance.
We have stayed in several B&Bs across the country and I will say without hesitation that this one is the best one that we have stayed in. We left feeling that we had become friends with Kate and Adrian. We will definitely return for a weekend getaway!
