Hermann's Calendar of Events


Remember your New Year's resolution?

March—the time of March Madness, St. Patrick's Day, Lent, Palm Sunday, the first day of Spring, and the start of daylight savings time—is also a great time to reflect back on your New Year's resolutions.

Wasn't this the year the two of you were going to spend more quality time together?

Our popular first-quarter lodging promotion was designed to help you make good on that promise. Here's how it works: Book a two-night stay that includes a week night (Sunday through Thursday) at the Inn or the Village during the month of March and you'll receive:

  • A complimentary Chocolate Bowl if you're staying at the Inn. This $60 value includes a bottle of Port Chocolate Raspberry Sauce, two Hermann Hill chocolate lover's mugs, and assorted chocolates, all packaged in a plastic flower bowl with a packet of herb seeds.
  • A complimentary Grilling Bowl if you're staying at a Cottage. This $50 value includes two bottles of Naked Grilling Sauce, a Hermann Hill basting mug, basting brush, and grilling apron, all packaged in a plastic flower bowl with a packet of herb seeds.
  • $20 voucher for Hermann Bucks you can spend however you like during your stay.
  • 10 percent off your second night's stay (Sunday through Thursday).
  • Frequent Stay program credits. After you've stayed 10 nights, we'll send you a gift certificate equal to 10 percent of what you've spent, retroactive to January 1, 2008.

Our new Hermann Hill threads program gives guests a way to share tips and ideas. A few examples:

  • Two couples who always stay at the Village during the Chocolate Wine Trail weekend bring along a crockpot. When they return from a day of wine tasting, dinner is ready.
  • Some Cottage guests like to grill their breakfast entrees on their outdoor gas grill.
  • Nature lovers are advised to be on the lookout for red-tailed hawks and bald eagles soaring over the river.
  • Many Inn guests highly recommend the biscuits and gravy.
  • Ricky's Chocolate Box in Hermann and Astral Glass, 15 miles to the east in New Haven, both have been mentioned as worthwhile stops.
  • Bring a cooler, in case you make the 10-mile drive down Highway 19 to Swiss Meats.
  • Schedule an en suite massage.

Gift certificates go to these winners of our February threads contest:

  • The Wyatts of Kaseyville, Missouri
  • Victoria and Gene Kellick of Geneva, Illinois

Their threads are among those posted on our website. One even includes song lyrics.

Spring is just around the corner. Meanwhile, it's time to shake off the winter doldrums with a Hermann Hill getaway—a quick and inexpensive way to relax and rejuvenate in these stressful times. Call 573-486-4455 or visit our secure website today.
