Vacation scheduling allowed me to stay at the Dauphine for an extended weekend, and I couldn't have made more felt at home. Scott and Sandra were first-rate hosts, making me feel welcome and appreciated. The Inn provided me with a perfect launching point for traveling around the area, and the surrounding community was charming. I certainly will make my way back to the Dauphine.

The Dauphine Hotel is the best place to stay if you live in Missouri & want a weekend getaway. I think it is Jefferson City's best kept secret as Bonnots Mill is very close & the town is like a time capsule. It was a beautiful little town & the Hotel & hosts were the best! My family & I are planning another stay there this fall!

Sandy & Scott were wonderful hosts. The room was lovely, and breakfast was delicious, with fruit fresh from their garden and eggs and bacon also very fresh. We felt like part of the family by the end of our stay. Incidentally we got engaged while there!

The B&B was very nice -- but I didn't like being able to eat in the room -- when called, lady said we could be served breakfast in our room. I also think they should have ice available for customers -- especially in the summer months.

I stopped at the Dauphine on the way to the 2012 BMW Motorcycle National Rally in Sedalia MO. The setting could not of been better after a near 500 mile day of riding from Cincinnati. Sandra and her husband showed great hospitality and their pride in the property and the work they have put in the renovation clearly showed through. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The parlors where a great places to read and relax. The town of Bonnots Mill offers a great place for a morning walk. The made-to- order breakfast was delicious. On street parking for our motorcycles was a plus. A very comfortable stay! Thanks Sandra, hope to see you on a return visit.

We have stayed at the Dauphine over five times in the last three years. Started out with a small group of biker friends and family members & now we use all 7 rooms! We love having the place to ourselves. Sandra & Scott are amazing hosts, always making us feel welcome. Johnny Mac's around the corner has great food & great service. We love coming to Bonnot's Mill twice a year now. Love getting away from it all, just hanging out on the porch with a cold drink in hand. Exactly what everyone needs!!! Thanks again Sandra & Scott. See you in October.
