Couples making time for themselves was the theme running through last month's winning threads entries.

Tom and Michelle from Glen Carbon, Illinois, wrote . . . The two-hour drive from our home in Illinois was the perfect transition from everyday life to a place where only the two of us existed for a little while. We began the trip talking about the kids, but by the time we crossed the bridge into Hermann we were reminiscing about our past stays at Hermann Hill and looking forward to making more wonderful memories.

As is our tradition, we stopped by Hermannhof Winery for a bottle of wine and a picnic lunch. Then we headed to Stone Hill to pick up wine for dinner. Finally, we were pulling up the lane to the Inn. Our getaway was about to really get started.

After checking in we strolled down to the Forest of Gongs to ring in our relationship...a long gong for "soul mates" and a tap on "passion" for good measure!

Our cottage awaited us, perfect as always. Nothing says you have stepped out of your normal life quite like hot tubbing and sipping champagne at 4:00 in the afternoon! It is easy to get caught up in all the activities of a busy home life. But Hermann Hill always reminds us that our relationship is worth the investment.

Jason and Angela of St. Charles wrote . . .We came to Hermann Hill with no itinerary or agenda. After being married for 10 years and parenting three small children, we simply wanted to set time apart to enjoy one another.

Entering our room, we were welcomed by a grand view of the town of Hermann, the Missouri River, and a gorgeous vineyard below. Our in-room notebook included menus for local restaurants. We dined at Trapper's Grill, then played board games, watched a DVD, enjoyed the cookies Terry delivered, and had a wonderfully romantic evening by the fire.

The next day we set off on the three-mile walk. We had lunch at Time for Pie and saw Deutschheim State Historic Site, then finished the day touring the local brewery and wineries and purchasing some excellent summer sausage and beef jerky at Swiss Meats. After dinner at the Vintage Restaurant, we wrapped up the evening sharing an intimate conversation in the over-sized Jacuzzi tub.   

Our time here was amazing. It wouldn't have been the same without the thoughtful attention of Peggy and Terry and the Hermann Hill Staff.

We hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as we do. Visit our web site to see what other Hermann Hill guests have to say.
