Airbnb has garnered a large following since its official launch in 2008, but real bed and breakfasts are still the number one choice for people who want to stay at a squeaky clean, home away from home on their vacation. Although Airbnb stands for Air Bed and Breakfast, there are numerous differences between it and real bed and breakfasts that date all the way back to Colonial America in the 18th Century. In fact, Airbnb’s aren’t actually bed and breakfasts at all, but more so a diverse array of short-term rentals. Since the companies launch, controversy has followed with some cities like New York and San Francisco trying to ban Airbnb entirely, but bed and breakfasts are here to stay.

Bed & Breakfast Inns of Missouri prides itself on being the real deal. The company matches you with the perfect place to stay in the Show-Me State, along with giving you advice on how to make the most of your Missouri vacation. You can find your ideal inn by searching by city, region, or amenities.

Each home that has a membership with Bed & Breakfast Inns of Missouri goes through a rigorous inspection by a trained independent inspector and receives an approval by the association’s board before it is accepted. 

At a bed and breakfast in Missouri, you are speaking face-to-face with the owner or a trusted assistant innkeeper who prepares and serves you a lovely, homemade breakfast each morning. They also act as your concierge, tell local lore stories at the breakfast table, learn about your career and family, and build a caring relationship with you that will make your stay even more meaningful. There’s also a great value in a B&B stay, as breakfast, parking, Wi-Fi, and much more are often included as part of your stay.

Whether you stay at the Amber House Bed and Breakfast in Rocheport that offers an in-house massage therapist and dinner service, the Cottage by the Castle that’s just minutes from the Lake of the Ozarks, or one of the many other certified inns, you’ll leave and go back into the real world recharged, relaxed, and reconnected from your stay.  

There is a collection of unique and traditional escapes that offer gracious Midwestern hospitality. Bed & Breakfast Inns of Missouri helps show exactly what the Show-Me State has to offer.
