We were biking the Katy Trail in Missouri and had booked Joey Los' Birdhouse in McKittrick, MO because everything in Hermann (across the river) was booked because it was Octoberfest. Well, it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! It is a charming B&B right off the trail. But the best part was meeting Joey and Rich. We were "desperate" to see the Broncos game, so Rich drove us into Hermann and picked us up after the game. His commentary on Hermann as a native was priceless! Joey and Rich were so helpful. My brother had broken a cleat and Joey was able to round up a pair of pedals that he could use with his tennis shoes.
But the best part was Joey's breakfast in the morning - hot scrambled eggs, hash browns, homemade pear butter, dandelion kimchi and sauerkraut, French press coffee - oh my! The best food we had on the entire Katy Trail.
