Visiting the University

Our stay was extremely comfortable. Very clean & the gardens were lovely. The bedding was luxurious and the bathroom was nice with the rain shower head & the fabulous shampoos & lotions. We were very relaxed and had a wonderful visit! We would definitely stay again.

Comfy, Cozy, Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

You won’t be able to find a better place to stay in Columbia, MO. The Arbor House is an old treasure. It’s everything one could want of a B&B, including a vintage feel with modern amenities. Ron & Dee provided a wonderful breakfast for us that took into consideration our daughter’s dietary needs and we felt like welcomed guests in their home. To be honest we packed way too much as Ron & Dee provided everything one would need on site. It truly felt like a home away from home. We thank Ron & Dee for their hospitality, warmth, and interesting conversation.

Beautiful and relaxing get away!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved being at this beautiful get away. Ron & Dee have done a tremendous job decorating inside and out. They surprised us with many little perks which showed their generous spirit and wanting to make us feel welcome and relaxed. We are already planning our next trip to Columbia and will absolutely choose this wonderful home! This is definitely a five star property and I would strongly recommend it to anyone choosing a time to relax and enjoy their time in Columbia.

Beautiful house with amazing garden in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Dee and Ron have done an amazing job restoring this old Victorian house. It is quite cozy with 2 bedrooms and a living room. Beautifully decorated with everything you would need and more. Lovely outside sitting areas in their incredible garden. It is in a great location to walk to the park or downtown. They are wonderful hosts and we really enjoyed visiting with them. We will definitely stay here again!
