Our Columbia, Missouri area lodging accommodations are perfect for romantic getaways and retreats, special occasions, weary Katy Trail cyclists, and adult friend and family gatherings. Our award-winning, widely acclaimed breakfasts are always freshly prepared. We feature seasonal and locally grown produce, eggs, cheese, meats, and herbs from our gardens incorporated into creatively new and traditional breakfast dishes.  Vegetarians and special diet requirements happily served.

True/False Film Festival

The True/False Film Festival is a documentary film fest that began in Columbia, Missouri in 2003.  This event runs February 27 until March 3, 2014.  If you like film festivals (or have never attended one), you’ll love this one.  Wall to wall documentaries fill days, evenings, and nights at multiple venues in Columbia.  The city downtown area is transformed with street entertainment, music, and food.  Several Acadamy Award winning documentaries have opened here.  Representatives (movie makers, movie subjects, etc.) are required to accompany the movies and are available to the public at screenings or other mixer events.  We’re located fifteen minutes from the action.
