Blackberry Creek Retreat Bed and Breakfast has gained a reputation of a special place in the Missouri Ozarks, where special people come together, creating special projects, indulging in wonderful meals, in a reclusive, quiet location.  Well, quiet until they arrive! Whether they come to Scrapbook, Sew, Knit, Needlepoint, Crosstitch, Quilt, celebrate a Girl's Weekend, or just read a book, first time Retreaters arrive curious to what to expect, and leave new friends and refreshed from their country escape. Our Retreaters have blessed us with many fond memories, relationships, stories, and an exhibition of their individual creative genius.

From our first Quilters Retreat Weekend in the beginning, Blackberry Creek Retreat B&B has developed a sense of the perfect retreat experience, deliver what we have learned, and this usually results in more often than not, our Retreaters closing the weekend by saying, "Get your calendar, we want to see what you have available.....". Many come two or three times a year.

Our five Guest Rooms allow a minimum requirement for a "Group Retreat" is (10) overnight Retreaters, double occupancy, but can accommodate a maximum (14) Retreaters by placing twin beds in four of those rooms. A very fulfilling breakfast and dinner are provided on changing vintage plating and service ware, making each meal a rewarding dining experience. Delicious after dinner desserts with access to our changing variety of Blue Bell Ice Cream selection, finish out each evening.

Springfield Missouri Area Retreats- If the retreat date is not filled by Blackberry Creek Retreat B&B, the double occupancy requirement stands, and the open rooms will not be filled by non- retreaters unless a "special circumstance" arises.

Amish Dinner

(Costs included in Retreat price)

Amish Dinner in an Amish Family Home

Our Webster County is home to the largest community of Amish families in Missouri, an maybe one of the most conservative. So, it is a pleasure that we have become close friends with one Amish family, and they welcome our guests to their home for dinner and a visit. We exchange one night's dinner here at Blackberry Creek Retreat B&B and drive a short distance over to the Schwartz home. 

Amish Country Webster County B&B

Once there, they provide a meal reminiscent of what one retreater proclaimed "this is like eating at Grandma's house". Homemade noodles, buttermilk fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, and the desserts, OH, THOSE DESSERTS. We can bring them back for devouring later....

Amish Baked Goods & Dinner

After our bellies are full, we generally settled into Amish crafted rocking chairs in the living room and visit with the Schwartz family a bit, before returning to the Retreat with wonderful memories in our heads.

This offer is included in the Retreat price (BCR pays for this versus providing that meal at BCR) and is available only if ALL retreaters agree to partake. BCR will not make a meal this evening.  We can bring a food package back for one or two desiring to not go if they'd like, BUT, we like to have a minimum of ten (10) of more go, and if less, we reserve the option to fill seats with others that have expressed a desire to join us.
