Perfect Weekend in Rocheport

5 on April 14, 2013

Conrad and Dixie have created a nice oasis for relaxation! We enjoyed shopping the town and listening to the blues at the General Store. The rooms and gardens they have created were a great place to relax and reconnect with the one you love! Too much to cover in a few paragraphs, so I have included some pictures from our visit. I highly recommend spending a weekend with them, there is no chance of being disappointed with a trip to the Yates House!

11 year anniversary

5 on October 03, 2011

My wife and I selected the Yates House to celebrate our 11 year wedding anniversary this past weekend. We stayed in the beautiful Katy Room. The room was so clean, comfortable and spacious. I commented to Dixie Yates that it felt like it was just built yesterday as clean as it was. It is obvious they take special care of their home and want all of their guests to have an unique wonderful experience. Conrad Yates gave us a personalized tour of our room and all of its amenities. The Sunday morning breakfast was simply outstanding and a must for all guests. I would highly recommend the Yates House to anyone looking to get away from it all for a few days. Tom & Janet

An outstanding B&B

We recently stayed here while bicycling the Katy trail. What a wonderful B&B Yates House is!! The room was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. Dixie is a wonderful cook and the breakfast we had was outstanding. And when it comes to customer service, they go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be - even offering to drive us to and pick us up from the local winery/bistro for a superb dinner experience. I can't say enough about Yates House and would highly recommend it to anyone! Thank you, Conrad and Dixie

What a wonderful gem!

After staying at other B&B's, we appreciate Yates House even more than we did at the time of our stay. Impeccable rooms, gourmet breakfasts, peaceful grounds and very friendly and helpful hosts. We wish there were more B&B's out there like this one.

Is this heaven? No, it's Rocheport

My wife and I have visited Rocheport and stayed at the Yates House on a yearly basis for several years now. We recently started a yearly trip there with three other couples. We stay at the Yates House because the service, accomodations and meals are second to none. Dixie and Conrad are delightful and always make us feel like they have been waiting for us to come back. This year, for the first time, we arranged to have a private dinner prepared by Dixie on Saturday night. The food was gourmet quality and of course the service and atmosphere were tremendous. I wouldn't have believed our yearly trip could get better, but it did. Thanks Conrad and Dixie.

A lovely place

We have visited this inn multiple times and always enjoy our stay. The rooms are clean. The hospitality is fabulous. Dixie is an excellent cook and the breakfast are incredible. During this last stay, we took advantage of an evening meal that was offered. What a fantastic meal and then we just had to walk back to our room. You just can't go wrong with this inn.

One of the best!!!!

My friend and I met there to attend a weekend cooking class. We had the BEST time. The facilities and garden were beautiful. Conrad and Dixie were one of the most hospitable Innkeepers I have ever met. Make sure you ask Conrad to tell you some of the history of Rocheport, very entertaining! The breakfasts were unbelievably delicious, Dixie is a gourmet cook! I definitely recommend the cooking classes. The dinners we made were wonderful, Dixie's recipes are definite keepers!!! Make sure you visit the local winery for a tour and tasting! Leave time to check out Rocheport, like stepping back in time! What a wonderful weekend!

OH!! When to schedule Again??!!!

5 on April 27, 2010

Dixie's cooking class was this past weekend. I joined my friend who had been before and she assured me I would enjoy it.. So with average expectancy and a plan to just rest...I was so blest and surprised.. We were joined by 6 other people (from all over the U.S.) (young and older, my age) plus our host Conrad and Dixie for the most enjoyable weekend I can remember..with more than excellent food, some I had helped prepare, more that excellent accomodations. Elegant, clean, comfy and with easy access to all the local shopping. I wish I could toss and big net over everyone and bring them to the Yates house for a time they will always remember. And will be asking themselves oh, when shall I schedule again?? warm regards from Springfield, MO.
