We're here for the Vicker's Apple Butter Festival. Beautiful getaway.
We had the best time, everything was perfect, even the weather! The wedding went without a hitch, the kids are happy as could be! Thank you!
A beautiful and restful location in the country in a log cabin with nostalgic decor that revives precious memories of our upbringing and generations past- all of which made our few hours together the best it could possibly be. Hopefully we will have an opportunity to return another time and bring a few more with us.
Thanks for hosting the KC Vipers baseball team. We love the place & had a blast. Hospitality & breakfast top notch!
Thank you so much for an amazing weekend. Everything was beautiful and I felt we were very well taken care of. The food was wonderful and I felt you went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. I would love to return in the summer to see all the beauty of the surroundings. Thank you!
This is the Perfect gathering place! Thank you so much for helping us feel welcome and at home surrounded by so many beautiful memories of years gone by.
What a wonderful place! I had no idea this bed and breakfast was here, and its such an idyllic and restful place. My brother and I grew up on a farm just outside of Nevada and this place brings back so many memories of the country life I miss so much. The sights, the sounds, the wonderful scents of good earth--loved it!
Thank you for everything, your hospitality and all your help with everything. We will never forget you! Your home is lovely and tranquil. We will return some day.
"Girls weekend, sisters (5) mom, aunt & cousin, just spending time together, going to flea markets, antique shops and just spending time together and enjoying the great fall weather. The Gathering Place is a great house, beautiful land. Great idea!" ~Barbara, (Kansas)
" Girls weekend out for my sister and me. My mom is with us and we had a good time. Your place is beautiful. Thank you so much." ~Deb. (Kansas)
Thank you so much for your hospitality and that love you glow with. We appreciate all the things you've done for us. Love you Ms. Joyce
"The hospitality and breakfast was wonderful. Thank you for a great stay!"
We're praising God for your beautiful heart and generous spirit....the opportunity to be here and share this Gathering Place was wonderful. Had a great time. See you in May!
Thank you so much for hosting us for our company retreat. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings to relax and come together as a team. We all enjoyed it very much.
This was a lovely place to to stay although way too briefly. Next year my daughter will graduate from Cottey so I will return with my family to enjoy your lovely home more fully.
We spent our honeymoon night here and were very impressed by the beautiful, inviting home, the warmness of our hostess and the delicious breakfast. The welcoming smell and snack of zuchini bread was amazing. Returning to the Prairie City area (slightly North of here) for our wedding we never dreamed of finding such a great and private place to stay. The Gathering Place is definitely a hidden treasure in rural Mo.
Thank you for making our "Girls Night Out" the oasis we needed. We'll be back. God bless you.
Enjoy being here where we can entertain our family all together in a spacious, relaxing atmosphere. Your gracious hospitality and generosity are a blessing. May God continue to use you to bless others and always shine His love upon you.
Thank you for a wonderful place to stay. Came up to watch my son play with the Nevada Griffons and to relax and catch up on some father/son time. Enjoyed fishing your pond or as we say in Texas "your tank". 5 lb bass was a nice surprise. Continued success with your B&B!
I can not even put into words how you have made my stay here. It was fantastic and your really outdone yourself. The food was incredible and I would recommend this to everyone. See you turkey season!
"Thank you for a great stay. It was like a breath of Heaven after a long day's journey when we arrived here."
Thank you so much for such an enjoyable stay. Everything has been perfect, including the delicious breakfast. We stayed here for our tenth anniversary and the experience has been much more than we had anticipated. your extra effort is greatly appreciated. See you again soon.
Spent my birthday here in your beautiful home. Had a great time, very relaxing! Enjoyed the view and the wonderful breakfast. Hope to be back soon.
"Thank you so much for your hospitality and great food. We all really appreciate your kindness."
The Gathering Place in Nevada, Mo hosted by Joyce, was absolutely the perfect choice for our reunion of dear friends who gathered in Nevada for another get-together over a long weekend. It had everything we could have wanted or asked for! There was plenty of room for the ten of us, including an amazing and fully equipped kitchen, complete with oven, microwave, toaster, coffee-maker, plenty of dishes, dishwasher, tables and chairs inside and out , a great and remarkably clean gas grill, and even spices and condiments! Joyce provided many extras like some refreshments waiting in the fridge, more than plenty of fresh towels, wash cloths, and toiletries. Just terrific! We created many meals and had great fun with the kitchen-a-plenty! The entire ambiance of The Gathering Place has to do with the meaning of being with family and friends and the joy of life. It is a delightful home of rustic elegance. Antique furniture, special memorabilia and keepsakes throughout reminded us of the many ways people honor and remember others. There is a porch that is wonderful with many chairs and chaises to hang out on , a table to talk around, a pond and beautiful property to walk about, as well as a couple of canoes that we didn't take out, but were tempted! We had a wonderful time visiting with each other there. Of note, there is a smaller cabin across the way that is a one bedroom, one bath, with only one step and bannister to navigate that is perfect for someone who has difficulty navigating stairs. Joyce had everything clean, and ready to go when we got there, including the air conditioning on so we were comfortable on arrival! The photos online do not do this beautiful rental property justice. With five beds, two and a half baths in the main home, it is more than enough space for ten to stay with ease and comfort. We did, and hope to return in the not so distant future! Many many thanks.

Wow- what a great place to relax. Flew in from Wy., met my daughter and her friends from Cottey College. We had a wonderful time
I'm one of Joyce's contractor friends (she likes to call me her favorite carpenter and list finisher), and have done many home repair and improvement projects for her over the several years that I've known her. Joyce takes pride in her home, and I can assure you she will provide you with the most comfortable atmosphere and lodging you will find in the area.
