Bed & Breakfast Inns of Missouri -- Inspected and Approved

Welcome to our Rocheport, Missouri bed and breakfast in the heart of Central Missouri!  On the scenic Katy Trail and just 15 minutes from Columbia, MO--home of the University of Missouri.  We have been voted "Best Missouri Bed & Breakfast" several years by Rural Missouri Magazine Readers' Choice Awards, as well as being featured in Southern Living, Midwest Living, 417 Magazine, Good Life Destinations, USA Today and the Columbia Business Times.

Visit Rocheport's Historic School House Bed + Breakfast
The School House Bed + Breakfast is a wonderfully restored 3-story brick building listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally a schoolhouse, this building was converted to a bed and breakfast in 1988 and serves as the perfect starting point for your relaxing Rocheport, Missouri retreat. Located midway between St Louis and Kansas City and only 15 minutes from Columbia, Missouri, the School House Bed and Breakfast is an easy drive for an overnight getaway from the stresses of daily life or to celebrate a special occasion!  And the quaint town of Rocheport (pop. 239) offers fine dining, our local Les Bourgeois winery, the scenic Katy Trail and unique antique and artisan shops.

A visit to Rocheport slips the bonds of our modern world's hectic pace and provides a welcome retreat to a quieter, simpler time. Your stay at the School House Bed + Breakfast completes that experience.  Stroll or cycle the Katy Trail, while the day away at nearby Les Bourgeois Vineyards and Bistro, our well-known Rocheport winery, curl up with a book from our library, or soak in one of our romantic, whirlpool tubs for two. Most importantly, take time to reconnect with that special person in your life. You'll return to your daily routine renewed, refreshed, and planning your next visit to the School House B + B.

Breakfast for Inn Guests
The School House consistently gets an "A" for the most important meal of the day!  Fresh-brewed coffee or tea, juice, fresh fruit salads or compotes, freshly baked scones or muffins and our signature stuffed French toast or baked omelets characterize our hearty, multi-course breakfast served in our second floor Common Room at 9 am for all Inn guests.  For early departures, an earlier breakfast time or continental breakfast tray is available by advance request.  Dormitory and Clark Street Lodge guests have continental breakfast items stocked in each unit for their self-serve breakfast.
