We had an excellent stay at the TypeInn and spent a lot of time enjoying the front porch/back yard since the weather was fantastic. I would recommend you check it out if you need a place to stay in Missouri.

Its not fancy but comfortable and charming. Clean as could be and well equipped. We were quite happy and loved the quiet and the view of the fields out the front door. You have to drive to the historic area but it's just a few minutes away and the shopkeepers were great.

Wonderful, quiet little spot that is perfect for families. House is very child-proof and safe for little ones (my youngest is 2). Very relaxing and everything you could possibly need is here in the house. Cute neighborhood with a great coffee shop and candy shop very nearby. Great getaway!
