We have rented several places in Hermann over the years, and the Wine Country Cottage is by far the best yet. It is beautifully decorated and the owners have thought of everything (water in frig, plenty of towels, air mattress if you need it). We are planning to stay here again on our next visit.
My daughter and son in law gave us a weekend here as a thank you for their wedding. The owners were friendly and replied to any questions quickly. The cottage is comfortable, clean, and has everything you would need or want! It has been renovated in the last few years and they did a great job! There are USB ports next to the headboard, there is a thick pad on the dresser for hot curling irons, and there is shampoo and other toiletries (in case you forgot something). The towels are fluffy and there are plenty! The kitchen is well provisioned (even a toaster!). There is a market about 5 minutes away so you can pick up what you need for breakfast. We took food to the wineries (you can only eat so much cheese, sausage and bread!!) in a cooler. There was also a bunch of bottles of water in the fridge, which was great! You don't want to get dehydrated! There is a parking spot for 3 or 4 cars, and when you come up to the door at night (after dinner) a motion light goes on so you can see. We would love to come back to Hermann, and would definitely stay here again! There was a surprise bottle of wine on the island when we arrived (a gift from my daughter and son in law), and there were also a bunch of Ande mints on a tray on the island-that was a great touch! She has a number of board games and decks of cards, as well as a nice flat screen TV. Even with the street right there, it was a quiet cabin inside.
This was such a cute place! Everything about it was so well thought-out. It was clear that they spent the time designing the place to cater to guests. They had a binder full of useful information, coffee in the fridge, board games, umbrellas, everything you need for a great weekend but forgot at home! They were easy to communicate with and booking was simple. It was right at the trolley stop too which was part of why we picked the place!
This is going to be my go-to place when I'm in Hermann!
Wine Country Cottage was perfect in every way -- from the high thread-count sheets to the coffee and tea and games. Conveniently located and a lovely respite that we hope to return to soon!
