WHERE DO I PARK?

 

We've got parking just for our guests! You'll find it on the side of the building next to the big grey service door. To be fair to everyone, we kindly request that each group of 4 guests bring no more than 2 cars since parking space is limited. If you're exploring the Katy Trail on bikes, don't worry! We've got secure bike storage outside in the big barn shed behind the building to keep your wheels safe.

WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED EXACTLY?

Our cozy spot is nestled in the Village of McKittrick and is currently a postal annex of Hermann, Missouri (65041). It's just a hop and a skip over the river from Downtown Hermann, only 2 miles away! See map. Connected right next to us is the Katy Trail State Park Trailhead at mile marker 100.8. McKittrick is steeped in history, especially with its connection to the MKT railroad. Our building, The Mercantile on the Katy Trail, has been standing tall since around 1897 and is proudly listed as a historic landmark on both the State and National Register.

BEST TIME TO VISIT HERMANN, MISSOURI?

It all comes down to what kind of experience you're looking for! If you're craving excitement and lively vibes, weekends are the way to go. That's when the town is bustling with tourists, live music fills the wineries, and you might even stumble upon a fun festival. But if you're after a serene and peaceful Hermann, we suggest planning your visit for Wednesday or Thursday nights. Mondays and Tuesdays are the quietest, with some restaurants taking a break. Don't worry though, the wineries are open every day, so you can still enjoy some tastings and tours. Just keep in mind that your dining options might be a tad limited. For the most up-to-date information on business hours around town, be sure to check out VisitHermann.com.

DO YOU OFFER ROOM BLOCKS?

We don't have the traditional room blocks for events because we're a small property with only 4 suites. But don't worry! We have something even better for groups: a full property buyout option. This means you can have the whole place to yourselves! If this option is available, you'll see it in the Booking Portal! Just select it like you would a regular booking. If you want to know more about this option, feel free to reach out to us. We're here to help!
