Reflect in your Own Personal Chapel

First developed in Europe in the middle ages, personal chapels were built primarily by the affluent.  These small chapels could be found in country estates, castles, and the lodging of abbots tucked away in a serene atmosphere.  In many cases, these private places of devotion were used as a place to reflect.  Although primarily common in Europe these small chapels are now catching on in the U.S. We knew Hermann Hill's Village held the ideal setting to build a personal chapel.  Tucked away in a woodland area overlooking the Missouri River, the personal chapel allows our guests a private personal space reflect on their life and their relationships.  These couples may want to let go of a past hurt, talk through a problem, or simply share their hopes and dreams. We encourage all of our guests on their next getaway to Hermann Hill to shut the doors to the personal chapel and shut out the world even if just for a few minutes.

61st Annual Maifest, Spring German Celebration, Hermann Mo.

Come enjoy a weekend of fun at the Maifest Spring German Celebration during your stay at Hermann Hill Bed and Breakfast.

For the past 61 years Hermann Mo. has held the Maifest German Celebration on the third weekend of May.  Join in the celebration that features a parade, German food, music, dancing and much more this coming weekend May 17-19.

Maifest first began as a celebration for the last day of school for the children. The girls wore new white dresses and the boys wore their Sunday best. The biggest treat for the children during the celebration was the Knockwurst, pink lemonade and an orange. The rest of the day was spent playing games and at concessions where the kids could buy popcorn and candy with just 20 cents. Maifest was a celebration that everyone looked forward to here in Hermann, especially the children.

We hope to see you there at Hermann Missouri Bed and Breakfast!

Riverbluff Cottages get a facelift!




When we built the Riverbluff cottages we named them and introduced themes in the stained glass unique to each building.

·       Cottage 1 Early Settlers

·       Cottage 2 Steamboats

·       Cottage 3 The Old Hermann Wharf

·       Cottage 4 19th century Hermann

·       Cottage 5 20th Century Hermann

We have always wanted to do a motif that reflects each rooms theme.  We have recently had our talented painter Dana Poe come up with an array of paint colors that reflect the names, such as Cottage 401 the Charles Eitzen which has been painted in the colors of past historic stores because when Eitzen settled in Hermann he opened one of the first general stores in Hermann.  Now that the painting of each cottage is done, we have begun looking for historic Hermann items from around the area with the help of our local on-line Newspaper County News Live to add to each cottage. 

You will also see these cottage themes reflected both inside and out as  Peggy and Terry get out to more auctions and here from the local residents of Hermann who would like to share these historic pieces with our guests. Terry will also be starting his own project in helping with the new design by building pieces such as a canoe for Cottage one-early settlers. 

As always we welcome any suggestions from our guests, after all you are the reason Hermann Hill is AAA’s Best in the Midwest!
