Pilot Grove B&B at 211 Roe Street is for sale.
Dolores & Virgil (the owners) now run the B&B from their home - about 2 miles from the Pilot Grove trailhead. We were ready to bike the two miles, but Dolores insisted on picking us up. We were grateful for the ride because the 2 miles had a VERY large hill (a challenge for the most experienced cyclist).
Dolores & Virgil are in the right business. They appreciate travelers and have some wonderful stories. We could have spent all night talking with them. We were invited to a hearty dinner, and breakfast was top notch. We were well fed!
Dolores told us that the one grocery store in town (next door to Deon's Bar & Grill) recently closed for good. Your best bet for grocery refill is in Boonville.

Our stop in Pilot Grove with Dolores and Virgil was the best of our ride. Dolores offers to pick you up in town since their house is off the trail. Take her up on the offer since the road to their house is hilly. We had a wonderful evening meal and more than a complete breakfast the next morning. They really enjoy hearing about where you're from and how your ride is going. We spent a full evening talking about the different riders that have stayed with them over the years. Definitely a must stop.
