My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Yates House B&B. Wonderful hospitality, comfortable rooms, and amazing food. A great location to access the Katy Trail, Columbia, and local attractions.

Whenever we are ready for some serious R&R, we choose the Yates House! It truly does provide an environment of restful spaces, whether sitting in one of the beautifully decorated bedrooms or overlooking the lovely backyard from the wooden bench on the patio. Dixie's breakfasts are consistently unique and delicious and the Inn's proximity to the Katy Trail and Rocheport's charming shops and restaurants always enhances our stay! We honestly have not once been disappointed in our 15 years of experiencing the gracious hospitality of Conrad and Dixie Yates.

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!

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

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

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.

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.

We were warmly welcomed by Dixie and Conrad. They made us feel so welcome. Our room was just beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. The gardens were a delight too. Bob and Debbie

A most pleasurable experience! Most accommodating, personal and proferssional inn keepers at your service at all times, and, a gourmet cook! Beautiful breakfast! Lovely well appointed rooms and some of the cleanest we have had the privilage to stay in! We will most certainly revisit again and again!

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.

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!

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.

My wife and I stayed at the Yates house in Rocheport for our 25th wedding anniversary. We could not have picked a better bed and breakfast and it was so good, we even extended our stay by an extra day. The Yates house features some spacious rooms which are very clean and well kept. They include amenities like a stocked refrigerator with complimentary waters and sodas and they even stock some dessert wine for an evening night cap. The garden area is gorgeous and well tended and we sat back there to watch and listen to the birds. Rocheport itself is listed as a National Historic town (the entire town) and you are easily in walking distance of anything that the town has to offer. We specifically picked Rocheport because of its proximity to the Katy Trail State Park as we are avid bicyclists. This is what brings many people to this area. Conrad and Dixie Yates are excellent hosts who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable, comfortable, and above all, memorable. I would highly recommend this B&B and am somewhat reluctant to post this review as I would rather keep this to myself. One other thing....Dixie is an awesome cook. What sold us over on this B&B over the others in the area is that Dixie offered to cook our 25th anniversary dinner so we didn't have to go looking for a good meal, and I don't think I could have found a better meal in a 50 mile radius......it was that good. All in all, it was an awesome stay, and we plan to return in the fall... Vern & Marilyn

Just driving into Rocheport made us start relaxing. I could walk down the middle of most streets and never meet a car. However, there are shops open and 2 very good restaurants. Then there is the Katy Trail and the Missouri River. The whole place (Yates House) was very clean and beautiful, but not overdone. Our room was spacious and comfortable. I liked everything, but my favorite was breakfast. Dixie is an artist in the kitchen. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, creatively done, and healthy. We will certainly go back.

The moment I drove into town, I started relaxing. People often walk down the middle of the street without ever encountering a car. Our room was very comfortable, very clean, and decorated in an elegant and simple way. While I enjoyed the whole experience, breakfast was my favorite part. Every day was different and better than the last. Dixie's dishes are delicious, healthy, and creative. Their hospitality was generous. They obviously enjoy their work. I will definitely go back.

The Yates House is the perfect combination of traditional elegance, attention to exquisite detail, and complete hospitality service.

From the time I walked up to the Yates House to the morning I headed home, I was enchanted by the experience. Conrad and Dixie are wonderful people and the picturesque setting is breathtaking. As if the clean, beautiful rooms were not enough, Dixie's food is to die for!! I will definitely make my way back to the Yates House soon.

I have stayed previously at Yates House and liked it. Went for a weekend cooking class and it was great!

The Yates House is our favorite place to visit if my wife and I ever have a spare moment to get a way. The inn is exceptional in every way. The house and rooms are very warm and comfortable, the back porches are very refreshing and relaxing and the food is exceptional! Once you have spent some time here you will know that you have found the best BNB ever.

my girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the Yates House. The accommodations provided there were top notch in every way! Thanks to outstanding owners, Conrad and Dixie!

Yates House had exceeded our expectations. perfect hospitality! clean, cozy, tasty, quiet, friendly, and our personal favorite. We will continue to be repeal customers and all our friends!

Dixie's food is magnificent and inventive. Conrad welcomed us affably. Dixie's sister Mary Ann was very friendly. The whole building is immaculately clean. The setting is picaresque. The room (Katy Room) was more than comfortable--we felt we belonged there. I wanted to move the bathroom to my house. We'll be back many times.

What a wonderful experience. The rooms were spacious, luxurious and clean. The food was unbelievably good. The hosts did everything they could do to make our stay perfect.

I stayed at Yates for my wedding. Dixie, the co-owner, yelled at my photographer when he tried to enter the premises to take pictures of my mother putting on my veil. She brought my mother to tears by arguing with her moments before the wedding. In addition, she would not let my grandmother enter though she was a "registered guest." A beautiful place but not the place to stay for a wedding.
This bride and her party violated numerous prior agreements regarding outside venders, outside guests, and rules designed to protect our property from abuse and liability. We require outside vendors (hair/makeup, photographers, florists, etc.) to checkin prior to rendering service. The wedding was not to be held at Yates House so we restrict numbers of unregistered guests on the property. Our requests for registered wedding party guests to intervene in the flood of unregistered guests onto the property went unheeded so we asserted our policy. This naturally resulted in a poor perception of our otherwise high level of hospitality. We regret the incident but felt our actions were necessary to protect our property and the comfort and enjoyment of other Yates House guests.

Comfortable and spacious room. Extra-fine special touch. Superb breakfast.

It's the place that we judge other bed and breakfast's against.

We needed to get away for a couple of relaxing days and this was the perfect place. It was quiet, comfortable, clean, the food was great and the hospitality was over the top. Conrad and Dixie were incredible hosts. We will be visiting again.

Very nice! Conrad was very friendly and informative. Breakfast was to die for! a nice B&B (little pricey) in a quaint town.

the yates house in Rocheport, MO is one of the best kept secrets in the United States. Try it and you will love it.

My friend and I walked/biked the Katy Trail and the Yates House was the best B&B we stayed in. Conrad and Dixie are great innkeepers and were very helpful. Breakfast was delightful. Highly recommend.

There are not enough accolades for the Yates House B&B. Fantastic breakfasts, of course. They' re within walking distance to the Katy Trail, Diana Bend Conservation Area, downtown Rocheport shopping, and Les Bourgeois Winery Bistro & A-Frame (a bit longer of a walk & part of it is up the bluff via switchbacks). Dixie & Conrad graciously gave me directions for a self-guided Amish country tour that provided an unexpected little adventure and a lantern to light my way home from the winery Bistro since I was coming home in the dark. They are also able to suggest other terrific things to do and places to eat at outside of Rocheport. I've stayed in the Tasha Tudor and Rose rooms. Both are pretty without being too frilly and kitchsy. The beds are fantastically comfortable. I highly recommend staying at with Dixie and Conrad at the Yates House!

Relaxing small town to bike on Katy Trail or canoe Missouri River. Enjoyed playing board games at the General Store. Innkeepers were very accommodating to nutritional needs.

An absolutely wonderful B&B in a delightful little town. It seems as though every detail has been thought out to make for a perfect stay.

This is the best b&b that we have visited, and that includes many here in England. Our hosts were delightful and the room was exquisite.
4.4 on September 27, 2007
This was a great place to stay! We biked on the Katy Trail, ate at the Bistro, visited the antique shops in town (all within walking distance). The room was GREAT, the breakfast was fantastic! The inn keepers are so nice and hospitable. We will definitely go back again.

Beautiful room, property, and garden. Every amenitity and convience was available in our own room.

For over six years my wife and I have been staying at the Yates House. We look forward to our annual visit and enjoy the relaxed environment and extremely comfortable rooms. We enjoy the special attention to detail of having cookies at night or freshly brewed coffee early in the morning. All of the rooms are always spotless and Conrad & Dixie Yates are always available to help answer questions about local sites to visit or activities in the area. We bring our bikes to enjoy the Katy trail that is only a few steps from the backdoor of the Yates house. The quiet town of Rocheport provides special shops and wonderful restaurants for fine dining. We also visit wineries in the area to sample some of the locally produced wines that make our visit each year enjoyable. Oh yes the fantastic meals that Dixie always provides will never leave you hungry. We have recommended the Yates House to all of our friends.

I could recommend Yates House to anyone. It was perfect in every way.

Stayed in the Garden Suite--a great selection for celebrating our anniversary. The most comfortable king size bed, with a beautiful headboard and luxurious linens. The bedroom overlooked a beautiful garden, and our room had a private door going into the gardens. The bathroom was oversized, with a wonderful air-powered spa tub that was so relaxing. There was also an oversized separate shower in the bathroom with plenty of water pressure--a rarity in even the best hotels. The sitting room had a beautiful fireplace. All the furniture was in keeping with the town of Rocheport, like going back in time, to a simpler, quieter time. The rooms were impeccably maintained and very aestheticically decorated. The hospitality by Conrad and Dixie was warm and friendly. Obviously their skill at running a B & B was honed to an art that had been developed over many years of experience. The gourmet breakfasts were to die for! It was great to walk outside and be a few feet from a nice little park, and also the Katy Trail where we took daily walks. We stayed 4 nights, 5 days. It was really hard to leave, but we vowed to each other we'd return. What a wonderful retreat it was!

I can’t begin to express in words what a marvelous host Dixie is. From the minute I stepped in I was welcomed with warmth and friendliness. The Yates House is a wonderful place to stay and is IMMACULATE!!

I've stayed at a number of MO B&Bs, and innkeepers just don't come any nicer than Con and Dixie. Their B&B is charming and immaculate, Rocheport is a delightful hamlet, and Dixie is a really good cook!
