Parsons House B&B in Defiance

He had a very disappointing experience with our stay when we came through on the trail in October. The owner wasn't there for 90% of the time and his dogs were left in a kennel and they cried and peed all over making the house stink the whole time. No one to check us in and we had to make our own breakfast the morning we left because he had work since it was a Thursday. The house may have been great at one point, but it was run down and unkempt while we were there. The advertised hot tub wasn't running as we had hoped it would be for our aching muscles this close to the end of our trip but it wasn't mentioned when we booked or comped in the price either. Very informal and didn't feel very welcomed since owner wasn't there until well after dark (maybe 10-11) and left well before we did at 8ish.

We stayed at the Parsons House the weekend of September 30th. This was the best time we have ever had at a B & B! The owner Norm is very accommodating, personable, welcoming and just plain fun! We will recommend this place to anyone biking the Katy, touring the vineyards in the area (Norm has a limo service too!), or just wanting a great time away for a weekend. The 1840s house is so lovely and has very comfortable bedrooms. Breakfast was excellent! The entire town is adorable, there is great food and music at the local pubs and restaurants, and it is close to historical places (Boone family farm). Thanks Norm for an awesome & entertaining time and looking forward to our next visit!!

Because of your recommendation/review, I plan to book an over night stay. I will be riding the Katy Trail and I like the proximity of the Parson's House to the trail. thank you.

GREAT place to stay! Defiance has the friendliest people and also a super bike shop. Norm is a wonderful host at The Parsons House. We had a lot of trouble on the trail to Defiance from St. Charles, but Norm made us feel right at home. The accomodations were outstanding, we raided the fridge before Norm got there and he later shared a bottle of wine with us. The room was very comfortable and well appointed, and the home has a great history. We would definately stay here again.

We failed to mention the breakfast! Ruby came in early and fixed one of Norm's old family recipes. Fabulous.

My bike riding buddy and I stayed at Parson's House in Oct. on our ride from Jeff City to St. Charles. The owner, Norm, is a great guy. He shared history of the house, took us to Chandler Hill Winery in his limo, then to dinner and met several of the locals. Great time. Thanks, Norm.
