CONTEST ENDED

A special note from your innkeepers
Dear Hopeful Aspiring Innkeepers,
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that we have ended the essay contest with no new owner taking up residence at The High Street Victorian Bed and Breakfast. We did not receive the number of entries we had hoped to be able to turn the keys over to a new owner.
We know that all things happen for a reason, we know that everything starts with a dream. Our dream has been to own and run a bed and breakfast here in MO and to continue to do so closer to family. We are trusting the Lord to show us the next step.

Your essay touched our heart and our lives. The essay contest was emotional for us as we read the essays when they came in, each and every one unique, special and worthy of a win. Choosing a winner would have been near impossible to make.
Right now, we are praying about what our next move will be. We are considering running the contest again in the spring if we can find a way to get the word out to more folks.

For now, the B&B will remain open for business.
We are also praying that someone who fell in love with the High Street Victorian Bed and Breakfast such as we did, who ponders coming home, who dreams of pouring out hospitality to visitors from around the USA and world is still interested. We are praying that you will not give up on the dream, but continue to pursue it.
We are still offering this beautiful B&B for sale, please visit the for sale listing here on Innsales.com: http://innsales.com/inns/high-street-victorian-bed-breakfast/

If you are still interested in purchasing this beautiful bed and breakfast, please contact us to arrange a visit or for more information. Please note we are not offering financial information on the business unless you are a prequalified buyer, as it is confidential.
We ARE refunding your entry fee per our agreement and mailing checks... it is a process and all checks should be sent out by 12/15/15.
We truly wish you all the best.
From our hearts to yours,
Gene & Kriss Royer

ABOUT

The High Street Victorian


Between the towns of Kansas City and St. Louis; Nestled high atop wooded bluffs overlooking the Missouri river sits Boonville, Missouri, a beautiful city rooted in history offering visitors an unexpected experience. Conveniently located right off I-70 in the heart of the state, Boonville will impress you with everything it has to offer. With a lively, stimulating cultural scene, combined with small-town charm and hospitality, Boonville will lure you in time and time again. 
The High Street Victorian sits on a bluff above the Missouri River, next to the Katy Trail. The Katy Trail is a 237 mile (386 km) trail stretching across most of the state of Missouri.  Over half of it follows Lewis and Clark's path up the Missouri River, where you can ride beneath towering river bluffs while eagles circle overhead.  After leaving the river, the trail meanders through peaceful farmland and small-town Americana.

High Street Victorian Bed and Breakfast was built in 1880 but provides the accommodations of the 21st century. It is listed on the National Historical Register and combines Victorian elegance with fine furnishings, antiques, large windows and light filled rooms. It's perfect for a romantic getaway or an overnight stay.
 Beautiful private gardens that include 3 arbors, a large pergola with a 100 year old grape growing over it, a beautiful waterfall and garden, and a secret garden courtyard. Much thought and planning went into the gardens with many perennials and heritage roses on the property. 

Superbly located a half block from the Katy Trail and near the waterfront, in the Historic District, High street is just steps away from local attractions, antiques, hiking or biking the Katy Trail, swimming, shopping, to just reading and relaxing and enjoying the scenery. Twenty minutes to Columbia and the University of MO (we get lots of over flow at game time and homecoming),  Central Methodist University, Rocheport, Les Bourgeois Vineyards, Kansas City , and St. Louis. There are endless possibilities.

This Victorian Home has many original features such as high 11 ft ceilings, solid-core interior doors, and 3 sets of solid pocket doors which still function beautifully.   Beautiful crown moldings and oak hardwood floors downstairs and cypress floors upstairs, stained glass windows, original gas & electric lighting fixtures. Original door casings and hinges and wood trims and moldings. Oversized hallways and wide staircase allow for comfort, even when carrying bulky luggage. Fine antiques and furnishings remain with the home. This home is centrally heated and cooled with two energy-efficient gas furnaces and two central air conditioners. High speed wireless internet access is available throughout the B&B.
Each morning guests are treated to a full gourmet breakfast, and in the afternoon, freshly baked cookies and evening dessert.
Comfortable and spacious innkeeper quarters include a 16’X16’ family room with garden view, and separate bedroom.

Maintenance and Care show in this beauty! In April 2004 Kriss and Gene Royer purchased this property. In 2006 the furnaces, water heater and central air conditioning units were replaced. The wiring and plumbing have been updated. The floors were refinished and the interior repainted. All major appliances have been replaced since then. The roof was replaced in 2011 and the front porch and balcony rebuilt and exterior repainted in 2013.

June 2008 the B&B was opened with a state-of-the-art website. In 2010 an online reservation system was added. It contains historically accurate interior furnishing and decorating throughout the B&B. To this outstanding Bed & Breakfast, the owners have added an enviable reputation and strong web presence. High Street Victorian Bed & Breakfast consistently ranks as #1 Bed & Breakfast in Boonville with strong, positive 5 star reviews in Trip Advisor.com. In Google searches, the High Street Victorians website displays on the first page for the most commonly used local keywords.

 High Street Victorian has won multiple awards including, * “Best Bed & Breakfast in the Boonslick area”.  and * “Best Interior”, This Old House Decorate your home for the Holidays contest “top 10 Backyard Makeover”, This Old House.

High Street Victorian Bed & breakfast offers a rare opportunity to own a turnkey beautiful Historically significant and successful destination B&B!
