Our hillside cottages are not just amazing guestrooms. These old Wine Houses date back to when German settlers first came to the area in the 1830s. The hills to the south of the Missouri river were not fertile farmland, but the settlers quickly realized the ground was perfect for growing grapes. When claiming their plots, settlers were charged $50 for their homestead if they were to grow grapes and $250 if they were not going to grow grapes. This led to most residents in the area creating their own house wineries. As wine houses, the wine was produced in the cellar and the living quarters were upstairs. In our hillside wine house cottages, you have the option of sleeping in amenity-rich guestrooms that were once wine cellars or the cottage living quarters. Both offer an incredible experience that you will not forget. Let our history become part of your story.
Our six hillside cottages were all originally built in the mid-1800s as house wineries. Two of the cottages are in their original locations (Blust Haus and Weinert Haus), the other four were painstakingly moved, stone by stone, to where they are today. These four houses are all local to the area, originally built within seven miles of their current locations. The cottage suites are located only a few blocks away from the inn, on East Hill. Guest rooms range from classic to luxury. Each is designed with exquisite style to offer you choices, which include magnificent bed chambers, wine cellars, sitting rooms, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, oversized walk-in showers, deep soaking tubs, wrap-around porches, and much more.
All our guest rooms provide the highest standard of excellence, with the comfort of you, our guests, as our first priority. East Hill is located behind the Hermannhof Winery, just a short distance from the historic district and the Amtrak Station. Each Hillside Cottage offers spectacular views of the river and the Hermann historic district. All of the historic Cottages have been meticulously restored, furnished, and decorated to capture the character and appeal of the 1800s. This Hermannhof experience is the ultimate romantic getaway.
