Best view in town!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an amazing time and unfortunately the weather prevented us from enjoying the outdoor amenities during our stay, but the house is spacious enough to enjoy getting stuck inside. Sam was very helpful with checking us in and supplying everything we needed. We plan on coming back!

Beatiful House

  • 5 of 5

When we pulled up to the house we couldn't believe we were at the right address. Even better than the pictures from their listing. Very close to town, but just outside of walking distance. The house had plenty of room for 8 people and could have fit even more. The views were incredible as the house seems to be at the very top of the area. The property was great as well.

A Gem of the Midwest

  • 5 of 5

Sam's home met our search for an ideal location to bring friends and family together to jointly celebrate my birthday and recent engagement. From the get go, Sam was responsive and took care to provide all needed information before our arrival. We discussed our plans with him for the weekend event and took his advice which proved to be very helpful in orchestrating the best possible itinerary for the group.

At first arrival, we explored the property and felt comforted immediately in the surroundings and knew, as a first big trip as a newly engaged couple, we hit the jack pot. Sam arrived shortly thereafter and shared stories about the home and the town of Hermann with us over a glass of wine. He has taken great care in the property. After all was said in done, we returned the favor in keeping the home in its original and clearly much loved state.

Don't hesitate to book the home!
