My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay at Ron and Dees. Dee greeted us when we arrived and walked us through the apartment graciously sharing all the information we needed for a comfortable stay. The space is comfy with a large sitting area. We also loved the beautiful flower gardens surrounding the home. The freshly ground coffee was fabulous and added a nice, personal touch. Thanks!

Ron and Dee were wonderful hosts, very accommodating while giving us plenty of space. The b&b was charming, comfortable and so thoughtfully decorated. We so appreciated the care and attention that they've put into the detail of their home. We highly recommend staying here if you're ever in the Columbia area. And the towels were soooooo soft!!! Thank you for offering us such a peaceful place to lay our heads on our long journey home.

Great place and wonderful host! The gardens around the house are gorgeous and Dee was so thoughtful. I had two toddlers with me and the place was very spacious and easy with kids. Would have enjoyed staying longer!

Beautifully maintained older home decorated with antiques and within 15 minute walk to downtown, MU and 5 miutes to great walking trails. My space included a nice size bedroom, bath and large sitting room with a mini kitchen. The home has beautiful grounds with multiple outdoor spaces for guests' use. Dee was welcoming and helpful. I will be back !

Ron and Dee's house is a home well loved and taken care of. We felt pampered and so very comfortable. The coffee beans were freshly ground and the mini fridge had all sorts of goodies. We had our own entrance and walked to town to eat dinner. Very convenient to the Katy Trail. They are warm and friendly hosts!!!

Ron & Dee User Profile

Ron is a woodworker extraordinaire, creating custom interior trim, staircases and fireplace mantels. He also designs and builds garden structures and with Dee, who is a garden designer, creates beautiful outdoor spaces. Together, we enjoy working in our own gardens, as well as adding to the beauty of our home. Besides gardening, Dee enjoys cooking and is an avid reader, while Ron nurtures bonsai trees, and creates garden lanterns and fountains in his spare time. We greatly enjoy spending time with family and friends. Deciding to share part of our home with guests has been a wonderful experience and meeting new, interesting people and providing them with an enjoyable visit has been a distinct pleasure.
