The Yates House is a bed and breakfast located in the small town of Rocheport, MO. The innkeepers, Conrad and Dixie Yates, retired nurses, have run the inn in what used to be their home, for 19 years. The Yates’ are self-sufficient and pride themselves on how much of their business is in their control. With that, comes the workload. The couple rarely goes to social events together, vacations only on the off season, and does routine maintenance and work around the clock. They are always “on call” in their own home. It is something they enjoy doing and believe they are very good at, so they have made it their life.
