Hermann's Calendar of Events


Sirius, the dog star, is rising and so is the thermometer. The dog days of summer are here.

It's that lazy, hazy, crazy time of year when everything and everyone slows down, including George and Gracie, the resident labs at the Inn. To liven things up a bit, we've expanded our popular “Have Dinner on Us” special.

Book an Inn suite Monday through Thursday, August 10 to 13 or August 17 to 20, and you'll receive a $40 check to spend at any local restaurant on your first night's stay. (As with all our our promotions, the Hermann Hill guarantee means previous bookings will automatically receive this special. )

Plus . . . guests who book an Inn suite any weeknight (Monday-Thursday) during the month of August will receive a $5 voucher, good at any of our fine Fourth Street eateries -- Time for Pie, Wings-a-Blazin' or Trapper's Grill.

Come sample our new Naked Grilling Sauce

You might want to plan your next Hermann Hill visit to coincide with one of our August barbeque parties. We'll be grilling on the deck at the Inn during check-in time (4:00 to 6:00 p.m.), giving out samples made with our new Naked Grilling Sauce and pouring complimentary beverages. Barbeque party dates are Thursday, August 13; Wednesday, August 19; Tuesday, August 25; and Monday, August 31. (Sorry, clothing required.)

What's for breakfast?

We've added several new entrees to the breakfast menu at the Inn. If you have a moment to spare, pease take a quick survey to vote for your favorites. Your feedback is the number-one tool we use to keep improving Hermann Hill services and amenities.

Local Hero Awards

They're quietly at work in every community—the unsung heroes who make the world a better place for us all. This month, Hermann Hill gift certificates go to:

  • Michael and Barbara Hall, nominated by Greg and Melissa Kelly. Michael is an EMT and Barbara is a special education teacher in St. Charles County. Friends describe the Halls, who are parents of a toddler, as very giving people who devote a lot of time and effort to everything they do.

  • Felicia Desneux, nominated by Josette and Corey Schneider. Felicia directs a nonprofit preschool and daycare center in south Kansas City. Her program also provides baby-care items for new mothers and pregnant women in need.

Sales Room Employee Award

Hermann Hill guests voted Charlene at Adam Puchta Winery the winery/brewery sales room employee of the month. Sandy and Sonny McKeag won the guest card drawing.
