Spirit Hill offers a home away from home for 2 to 8 guests. The contemporary red house is located on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River in Hermann, the most beautiful small town in Missouri. Just five blocks from the Historic District, Spirit Hill is a quiet retreat that's less than a 5-minute drive from anywhere in town - wineries, museums, restaurants, shops, wedding venues, marina, bike trail, Amtrak.
Spirit Hill accommodates a group of eight with four queen bedrooms, each with private bath. The home was recently remodeled for a fresh, contemporary feel.
If your group is smaller, other options are available. For a group of six, choose the Main Level, available as a complete package with 3 bedrooms and baths. Or choose the lower level Patio Suite for two. Please contact us for rates for these options.
There's plenty of parking upstairs and down. And the house is completely accessible, with a roll-in front door and one bedroom with a roll-in shower.
Whole House rental includes living/dining area, full kitchen and generous deck with gas grill. Coffee and tea supplies are provided, and biscotti snacks. Breakfast and all meals are up to you. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, and even spices.
Hosts are on-site in the lower level Innkeepers Suite to answer any needs you may have.
Each rental has its own separate entrance. We enjoy meeting you on arrival, but after that, the house is your own unless you need something. We're glad to suggest grocery locations, restaurants, wineries and activities if you like.
In operation for more than 12 years, we enjoy sharing Spirit Hill's comfortable spaces and beautiful views with our guests, some of whom have been joining us for many repeat visits.
If you're in town for a wedding, Spirit Hill accommodates the wedding party or multi-generations of family for a mini-reunion. Groups of friends, couples or singles, enjoy relaxing on the deck or around the dining table for meals, games and laughter.

About the owner: We happened on Spirit Hill one day when we were staying in a Bed & Breakfast in Hermann. The stunning river view stopped us in our tracks! And there was a 'For Sale' sign in the yard ... so three weeks later, Spirit Hill was ours! After six years of enjoying weekends in the charming historic town of Hermann, we were able to move in full time. We did a complete rehab and expansion based on meeting the needs of our guests. It resulted in a completely new look, four bedrooms with ensuite baths, a separate Innkeepers Suite, and a beautiful, rocky landscape with two small fish ponds and a waterfall. We love to share the beauty and benefits of the property and the town!
Why the Owner Chose Hermann, MO, USA:
Only a few homes in Hermann enjoy such a beautiful river view. Year round, it's satisfying to watch the river flow and to see the water rise and fall with the seasons. Views from inside and outside the house make Spirit Hill a truly special place.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spirit Hill was remodeled to resemble a Swedish summer house, with red walls and white trim, as a nod to our family's Swedish roots. The light is an important feature of the house, with windows spreading light from front to back. Even after dark, Spirit Hill is a fine location to watch for shooting stars, away from city light pollution.
Natural stone steps lead past flowers and a waterfall to the front door.
