Our Story

Welcome to The Mercantile on the Katy Trail – a place where history, hospitality, and the beauty of McKittrick, Missouri come together in perfect harmony. We are Monica and Olga, the proud new owners of this charming four-suite mercantile boutique stay. After five months of tireless renovations, we are overjoyed to announce the grand reopening of this beloved gem.


Our journey with The Mercantile began in June 2023 when we embarked on a mission to preserve and enhance the rich heritage of this historic property. As sisters, we share an affection for McKittrick and the nearby town of Hermann, MO. You may even catch a glimpse of us sipping coffee on the patio, strolling over the bridge in Hermann, or on the deck at Alemania Haus, our other vacation rental.


"The Mercantile on the Katy Trail" is not just a business for us; it's a labor of love. We believe in the power of revitalizing the past and allowing its natural beauty to shine. Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming retreat for both new and returning visitors to McKittrick, MO. 


Nestled on a quiet street, just steps away from the historic Katy Trail, our mercantile is perfectly situated to offer you an unforgettable stay. Our well-appointed suites are thoughtfully designed to cater to the vibrant McKittrick, Hermann, and Katy Trail communities.


We take great pride in offering an experience that is not only comfortable and inviting but also reasonable. The Mercantile on the Katy Trail is your home away from home, a place where you can unwind, connect with the local history, and explore the scenic beauty of this region.


As we open our doors, we want to express our gratitude to the community for their support and encouragement during our renovation journey. We are thrilled to be a part of the McKittrick and Hermann family, and we can't wait to share this delightful space with you.


Whether you're here for a relaxing getaway, a Katy Trail adventure, or simply to soak in the rich history of the area, The Mercantile on the Katy Trail is here to make your stay truly memorable. We look forward to hosting you and creating lasting memories together.




Monica and Olga
