We arrived in Hermann just before 8pm on Amtrak from Kansas City. It is just a short walk from the train station to the Bank Bar where we met Connie and Wayne. Connie graciously showed us to our room upstairs and gave us a few hints on things happening in Hermann over the weekend. And that was it. We were entirely on our own to enjoy the wonderful little town, the inn and each other.
The setting of the Schiller Guest Suites is perfect for all of that. The inn is everything everyone else has already said so I will just elaborate a little on one of the many little touches that we really liked.
We have stayed in many b&bs. To us they are really just beds without the breakfast because we are usually so exhausted from our work that we never make it up in time for the breakfast. Connie and Wayne just leave everything you need neatly tucked away in the ktichen. Its' a great concept and very well done. For this little detail alone, we would stay here again, but as others have elaborated on, it is so much more.
Our two days in Hermann went way to fast!
Here are a couple of hints for visiting Hermann. Take Amtrak if you can. It is really relaxing and is running lots better than it has in recent years. Both of our rides this time ran AHEAD of schedule. You really don't need a car in Hermann anyway.
Visit the locals. We met some real interesting characters. Can't wait to return.
