Bed and Breakfast House

For our anniversary, we decided to go to Hermann, Missouri for the weekend. And we thought it would be nice to splurge a little on lodging and stay at a B & B. So I looked and looked, but prices were kinda high, and most were booked full. Looking outside town in hopes of finding something less expensive, I found a B & B that has 2 whole houses to choose from. One was a 1960s ranch home, and the other a 1920s farm house.  We chose the farm house as it was a little more secluded and private.

Epple Haus

Very private. In fact, we think the driveway was probably about a half mile long.

And it went through a pasture with cows. But we loved it. It is down in a valley surrounded by pasture, hay meadows, and woods. There are a few farmbuildings on the property too. A peek inside one of the outbuildings revealed an 1800s log cabin.

We loved our little house. It had a large kitchen, living room, 2 spacious bedrooms, bathroom, and a jacuzzi, and all for only $89 per night.

Kay and Arlen Schwinke, the owners, were very gracious and warm hosts. There were homemade cookies and sweet rolls waiting for us on the kitchen table, and the fridge was stocked with bacon, eggs, bread, butter, o.j., milk, homemade jam, pop, and bottled water. Kay loves to collect antiques, and  has decorated the house with many of her treasures.

The house was so cozy and peaceful, and the surrounding fields and woods so restful.

There were cattle in the pasture along the drive, and a few times we had to wait for them to move along, but we loved it – it was all part of the experience. We will definitely stay there again someday. Here is a link to the Epple Haus B & B. We give 2 thumbs up, 5 stars, and a big Thank You to Arlen and Kay for a wonderful stay.

Tomorrow, we tour the Stone Hill Winery in Hermann.
