While our primary focus is on The Katy Trail Cyclists, other travelers are more than welcome to come and join in the activities.Visitors to the Hermann area can enjoy the relaxed farm house atmosphere, play some music and/or watch a bonfire. Located at the 110.8 mile mark on the Katy Trail midway between Portland and Rhineland and easily accessed by car or bike.
Providing a comfortable stop for cyclists and other travelers in our area has been my goal for 25 Years. Most people that have been here know this is not Granma's Lace and Doilies but Uncle Doug's Beer and Bonfires. We play folk music, talk cycling and other topics and LAUGH! Dinner as well as breakfast are both served for guests with a reservation. I will do my best to prepare a meal for guests that show up without a reservation but no promises! Those that have paid in advance deserve my first consideration.
There are three guest bedrooms with a full bed in them. One of these also has a twin bed.It works well for two that want to share a room but not a bed, or for a couple with a child. I also have a loft bedroom that is smaller. It is more for campers that get caught in bad weather or children love it as a room away from others. So do their parents.
I am currently restoring an older Airstream Camper for guests to stay in. Has two twin beds and the fold down couch in front. It should be ready by fall. As it is the A/C works and beds are made but plumbing not hooked up. Can use shower in washouse. Ideal for three people that are on a budget but don't want to share a bed. It will be $107.30 with tax, meals extra or if you want to cook it has a galley and you can bring food or I will be glad to shop for you when I go to market.
There are bar-be-cue grills on the back deck for guest use and laundry facilities in the wash house.
I answer email as quickly as I can but am not at the computer much during the day. Call if you have questions or need help setting up your trip on the Katy Trail or even just to find out more about the area and other businesses close by. 573 236 4575
There is always going to be something burnt bloody or broke, quit whining and get going.
I have one campfire area and there are dead limbs down in the woods nearby. If you prefer split firewood it is available for purchase.
No smoking in any buildings
No meanness anywhere on the property
Don't mess with my record albums
Don't touch my last beer
