Let’s embark on a journey through five distinct regions of Missouri, exploring the unique attractions and accommodations offered by BBIM’s member inns.


  1. The Quaint and Cultural Northwest

When you think of Northwest Missouri, cities like Kansas City, Independence, and St. Joseph come to mind.

The B&Bs in this region serve as your perfect base to explore the landscape as well as the soul of Northeast Missouri.

  1. The Heartwarming Central Region
