My wife and I stayed one night at this B&B. Nice owner and a good breakfast. The rooms are well appointed, but the house is in need of repair. Pretty much everywhere you look there is a reminder of why it is expensive to own a building like this 1896 mansion. For the price, I think we could have had... More

My partner and I stayed one night at Birk's Gasthouse (now Herzog Mansion). The house itself is aging a bit ungracefully - it looks like there are some sort of renovations or repairs being done to one side of the property's exterior, but neglect and decay are apparent throughout the interior of the house. Having stayed in several aging homes... More

My wife and I stayed there in March and had a very pleasant experience. The manager Rick was knowledgeable of the area and made an excellent french toast breakfast. My one complaint is the place is appears to need some repairs and some updates. The bed was comfortable and everything was nice and clean. Also, the trolley will stop there... More

This B&B was very charming, decorated lovingly by the owners over time. The beds and rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Richard was very knowledgeable about Hermann and helpful even with suggestions for where to go to buy dress socks! Yes, we forget them and had to find some in a hurry. He was pleasant to talk to, and we took... More

Beautiful home with charming rooms. The game room was fun. Breakfast was great. The pastry was delicious! Richard was a wonderful host and we had a great chat over breakfast. We only had one night to get away, but we could have stayed longer in this wonderful B&B!

The property is in need of repair in the common areas. Our room was comfortable and clean. I believe it's under new ownership. It was very expensive, 175.00, and we expected it to be in better condition. The Breakfast was good but very limited and small portions. We will try a difference B&B the next time we visit Hermann.

Beautiful old mansion, "in town." The owner, Richard, is delightful, kind and extremely helpful. We were in town for a bachelorette party and he was very accomodating. There were 20 of us total, several of the ladies drove into town early and he accomodated them in preparing our lunch prior to the large group's arrival. His breakfasts were wonderful, and... More

Charming old mansion. The owner was very generous and accomodating. He provided excellent advice about the area. I'm on a restrictive allergy diet and he really wanted to make a suitable breakfast for me and it was great.
