This bed and breakfast closed near the end of 2012. I called to book a reservation and found this out. I'm sure it was lovely. Now I'm just trying to fill this review space because there is a 200 character minimum.

My Mother and I were taking a trip and decided to try a B&B. We were extremely pleased with our choice. Bill and Marge were a charming couple.

I stayed at this delightful B&B on my move to Texas. It was a great rest after a long day of driving. The hosts were welcoming and the house is very comfortable. Breakfast was great! I wish I could have stayed another day just to relax in the yard. I plan to go back!!! Would highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed at Bit of Eden on a hunch that it might be "better than a motel." Little did we know that we were in for a surprise visit with people that seemed like old friends. Bill and Marge Meeker are two of the friendliest people I have ever had the opportunity to meet! If you stay... More

Bill and Marge, We have visited many Bed & Breakfasts--and yours has been by far the “home away from home” all travelers seek. Your charming bungalow reflects the love you have for one another, and your guests. You are delightful human beings. Bill so artsy, outspoken with great humor. Marge a classy lady, educated, with a green thumb. You both... More

My boyfriend, Nate, stayed at this B&B in 2007 when he was touring on the pro-tennis circuit. 2010, Nate got back on the circuit, signed up for the Joplin Tournament, and invited his older brother and I to stay with him at his favorite B&B in the U.S.A ! Bill and Marge gave us great rooms, great breakfasts, and entertained... More

We drove to Joplin after visiting our son in Texas, to investigate a city we have considered for that much elusive retirement period of our lives. Marge and Bill offered just what the doctor ordered. A place filled with love, friendship and a sense of camaraderie we needed while checking out this city. Their friendly spirit and a friend who... More

While trying to find a B&B in Joplin, I came across the "Bit of Eden" website. (All the other listings, except for one, were no longer active B&Bs.) The house is cute as a doll, and the gardens are gorgeous. The owners, a retired couple, live in the lower level, and whomever books the B&B is on the main level.... More
