We had a wonderful stay with Jerry on our girl's trip along the Katy Trail! He prepared a delicious hearty dinner and breakfast for us, entertained us with local history stories, and helped us get our bikes cleaned up after a rainy day on the trail. He has a lovely, clean and comfortable b&b.

Jerry was a great host. He greeted us with a hose and cleaned our bikes for us. He had interesting stories and is an awesome cook. Our room was comfortable and quiet. He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. We would stay again, for sure.

Just stayed with Jerry last week. Great guy. He will run out in the middle of the night to rescue folks. Would definitely stay with his B&B again.

We stayed here because of the positive comments. Jerry's B&B house is about 100 years old, as are many of the B&B's across the country. However, Jerry's smells like it's 100 years old. It could definitely stand a thorough cleaning. I was even dubious about the cleanliness of the sheets and towels. Jerry told us he likes to provide everything he can think of for his guests. He did provide everything, but everything was tainted with dirt, especially his running stream of racist remarks. I will never stay here again.

Wow, I can't believe I just read that. I have stayed at nearly all the B&Bs on the trail, and Jerry's is one of the best. The place is kept very clean compared to many, more modern homes. The wood floors and the staircase all appear to be original, but in very good shape. And I have never heard a negative word come from Jerry (who sounds uncannily like Paul Harvey).

CurtM from Fort Worth TX on 11/06/2017 01:00 PM:
Having stayed at Jerry's B&B a few days ago on Oct 30th, Anonymous's comments are totally unfounded. Jerry was friendly, accommodating and gracious, and his home was clean and inviting. On the morning of my departure, he even caught up with his other Oct 30 guests down the trail to make sure they got the items they'd left behind. Anyone who signs a critical comment on a public forum as "Anonymous" has no merit.

Mike Hobart from Russellville KY on 11/07/2017 12:55 PM:
Whoever “Anonymous” is; has really misrepresented a wonderful person and a great B&B. I stayed with Jerry last week and the place was very clean, had a comfortable bed and did NOT smell. Jerry is a retired police officer and Air Force reservist who has not only served his country but community. He loves his country, his community and his fellow man. I met him for the first time in my life last week and after staying with him and indulging in numerous conversations; I never heard him say anything that could be interpreted as racist. I’m sorry that someone has cruelly and anonymously attacked a fine human being and a great B&B. He has had hundreds if not thousands of visitors and most of them are repeat visitors. I would not hesitate to stay there again and if you give any credence to Anonymous I would suggest that you read on down further and see if you don’t find positive review after positive review.

I just wanted to be another person to un-Anonymously say the Anonymous got it wrong. Jerry is a great host with a great place.

Plan to stay with Jerry in April. Will give you my objective view.

Honey, the term "racist" has lost its meaning years ago... please try to be a little more clever next time.

1of3KatyTrailRider from Kirkwoo on 05/27/2018 01:25 PM:
I just read the last comment from Anonymous and was a appalled. Whoever this Anonymous is, is greatly mistaken. There were 3 of us who stayed at Jerry's B&B first part of Oct 2017. Our stay was wonderful! The place was clean,the pie and breakfast prepared by Jerry was to die for. Jerry, as a host and person, was kind,generous,told great stories. I would recommend Jerry's B&B in a heatbeat.

Globe Hotel Bed and Breakfast from Hartsburg on 08/05/2018 05:01 PM:
Hey there! I just have to make a comment here. We have had hundreds of guests over the past few years who have typically spent the night before with Jerry in Pilot Grove. Not once has anyone ever said anything about the cleanliness of his house nor has there ever been any mention of him making racial comments. I'm sorry, anonymous, if you had a bad experience, and frankly, I'm baffled at where your perspective might be coming from. Perhaps if you weren't anonymous there might be some way for Jerry to make amends with you. Leaia Clervi

this was our second time staying with Jerry and it was great. He sprayed down are bikes from the soft trail, had great meals comfortable and clean house. Plus, Jerry is a great story teller :)

Jerry was a great host as he met us at the front door, helped us store our bikes, showed us around, and made sure we were well taken care of. He makes a great breakfast and takes pride in what he does. The house is clean and so comfortable. We loved our stay!

My dad and I stayed at the Katy Junction B&B Saturday June 9th. After an incredibly hot day on the trail filled with flat tires and mechanical difficulties Jerry's B&B was a sight for sore eyes. He brought us ice water as we sat in the garden to cool off. He helped us get our bikes into storage once we had recovered from the heat. We stayed in the room with twin beds and it was perfect. We lucked out for dinner, Jerry's church was having their annual fish fry and invited us. It was a great dinner and great company. Sunday morning Jerry made omelettes for us. They were delicious! A great meal to start another day of biking! Thanks Jerry :)

My son and I stayed with Jerry and I can’t say enough good things. We rode this past Memorial Day weekend and we were in rough shape from the heat when we arrived. He helped us get our bikes into storage and he continuously looked for ways to help us cool down and get comfortable. Jerry will fill you with some good stories as he is an Airforce vet, retired police officer, active member in his community, and just a very caring person. Thank you Jerry.

The Katy Junction B&B is definitely a great place to stay. Jerry is a warm, friendly, helpful host who goes out of his way to make his guests feel welcome and comfortable. He's a fine cook and even had chocolate/banana pie waiting after we returned from getting dinner at Casey's. I recommend the Katy Junction B&B to everyone and would plan to stay here again if I were to spend days on the trail again. Thanks, Jerry!

Jerry has thought of everything!!
Bike storage, comfy beds, toiletries, hearty breakfast, full use of the lounge and screened porch. We walked across the road for dinner and arrived back to Jerry's dessert (banana pudding). Jerry is a wonderful host. He even gave us some leftover banana bread to take with us. Do not ride past this place!!

This was our first stop after 25 miles from Sedalia to Pilot Grove. Jerry, the host is the consummate host/chef! Of the 3 places we stayed on our 4 day trek from Sedalia to Jefferson City I enjoyed his breakfast the most! It was hearty and delicious! We are so glad that he has opened his beautiful home to those needing a place for the night from the Trail! The bed was comfortable and the room had everything we needed. We used the hall bathroom which was well stocked with fresh towels and a blow dryer. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone else traveling along the KT Trail.

I recently stayed at the Katy Junction with my 9 year old son as we traversed the Katy. The accommodations were comfortable and our host was wonderful! Everything was just great!! And, as an added bonus, Pilot Grove has a great community park complete with a swimming pool. We just arrived too late to take advantage of that!!

A very sincere thanks for a wonderful stay!!

Absolutely amazing experience, as usual! The house is lovely and Jerry is a wonderful, gracious host! This was our second year at Katy Junction B&B and it won't be our last. From beautiful accommodations to Jerry's wonderful cooking and company, this is hands down one of my favorite vacation spots. Thanks, Jerry!

John Brackman from Kansas City on 08/01/2017 07:45 PM:
Jerry is not only a great cook, he goes out-of-the-way to help out. I'm walking the trail and Jerry picked me up at Boonville and then drove me to Clifton City so I could walk to his B&B and then finish me walk the next day back to my car. He also dried out my very wet clothes having been caught in an unexpected rain shower.

Hi There,

We're planning to ride the katy in October. We're tall guys, 6'7". Does the Katy Junction B&B have longer beds to accomodate taller people?

Dude, CA or Klondike kings are sparse here in MO on the trail. You just adjust an sleep diagonal in a regular king. Or just do a bag on the ground at a park an you don't need to worry. Are you under 30 or something? Wow!

What a nice place to stay right off the Katy Trail. Host Jerry was wonderful. He is a great source for history of the area and a great cook as well. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. The place was historic and charming and what a great breakfast, Thank you Jerry!

My sister and I just stayed with Jerry on Sunday evening the 25th of June and had the same experience. It was a great place to stay. Great location, nice facilities and great food!

I stayed at the Katy Junction B&B on June 26 and had a pleasant time. The breakfast was great. Jerry helps however he can.

I stayed at Katy Trail B&B last week. Jerry continues to provide excellent service and showed me all the updates he has done to the place since the last time I stayed. Love the conversations we have!

Jerry (the owner) is a great guy that helped us out of a jam. He let us pitch our tent in the back yard of the b&b after we found out that there was a wedding reception at the city park that was going to last well past midnight.

We LOVED the Katy Junction B&B! We had planned to camp in the park but were less than thrilled with the yucky bathrooms when we got there. So we called Jerry at the last minute and booked a room for the night. We loved the house, comfy room and the wonderful screened in porch overlooking the Pilot Grove Trailhead (can't get any more conveniently located than that!). Jerry is a wonderful host and a fantastic cook. We enjoyed his company and his delicious breakfast. We'll definitely stay there again!!

Had a great stay. Jerry had everything ready. The rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Upstairs has two bedrooms and a second bathroom. The back yard has seating and tables which is very nice, but the front porch was our favorite. He even locked our bikes in his garage. Jerry is quite the cook and prepared a great dinner and breakfast. No complaints whatsoever.

Amy from Kansas City on 10/18/2016 02:33 PM:
Loved the house, very cute. Lot of rooms. Jerry was absent most of our stay. His sister took care of breakfast and collecting our money. Breakfast was biscuits and gravy and was delicious. The carpet in our room had not been vacuumed before we arrived. Lots of hair and bits of grass on it. The bathroom was not cleaned well. The bathmat in the tub was slimy, the faucet was still spotted with toothpaste from previous guests, and there was some paper in the bathroom trash. Beds were clean. Everything else looked good. Bikes were locked in the garage overnight for safe storage. Overall, it was a good stay.
