Tips for Planning a Romantic Anniversary Getaway in 2020

Wedding anniversaries call for big, thoughtful celebrations, and at Hermann Hill, we know a thing or two about building meaningful relationships that withstand the tests of time. In 2019, founding innkeepers, Terry and Peggy Hammer, celebrated 50 years of marriage! 


When asked about also celebrating the 25th anniversary of Hermann Hill this year, Peggy said “When you look at our lodging and wedding business, the common theme is couples. Hermann Hill is a place where couples can relax and rejuvenate, and hopefully leave better than when they arrived.”


Even those married only a short while can attest to the fact that not every day is sunshine and rainbows. That being said, don’t start running for the hills just yet—unless it’s Hermann Hill, of course! 


Getting away together is one of the best ways to celebrate your love. To help you put together a memorable anniversary vacation, Terry and Peggy are offering up their best tips for planning a romantic trip for two. Take advice from these seasoned marriage experts today!

Plan a Romantic Anniversary Getaway 

All relationships need a break from the mundane and hustle of everyday life. Planning a romantic anniversary getaway is one of the sweetest ways to rekindle the passion that brought you and your significant other together in the first place. 

What Activities Would You Like to Do Together? 

First, decide what activities you would like to do together because that determines your destination. Do you envision being tucked away in solitude, enjoying the peace and stillness of a room with enchanting views and spa amenities? Or maybe a picnic lunch, wine tasting, a historic three mile walk through town, bike riding on the nearby KATY trail or partaking in one (or more!) of our driving scavenger hunts is more your style. 


With so many options, Hermann, Missouri is perfect for romantic getaways. Explore by day and then retreat to Hermann Hill, where you can revel in all of the luxurious amenities that a boutique hotel has to offer. From margaritas, hot tubs and a gourmet breakfast lovingly made by our in-house chef, you simply can’t go wrong! 


Sometimes the best getaways involve doing absolutely nothing. Relive the romance with our Relaxing Anniversary Experience, which includes a half dozen roses and rose petals on the bed, a bottle of sparkling wine, mixed chocolates and chocolate-covered fruit, and a fireside couples rejuvenation massage in the spa. Slow cooker meals and gourmand trays are available for delivery to your room. Never leave your room or Riverbluff cottage and don’t feel bad about it!

Look for Off-Season Pricing

Just because your anniversary is in October doesn’t mean you have to wait until fall to celebrate. Plan your romantic anniversary getaway when it’s most convenient for you and take advantage of off-season pricing when you can—especially if you need to stick to a budget.  


At Hermann Hill, you receive an exceptional value when you book a mid-week (Sunday through Thursday) stay rather than a weekend getaway. Not to mention, the Hermann-area is more relaxed and tranquil during the week—which is perfect for love-birds looking to focus on one another and beat the crowds. 


You’ve decided where you want to go together. Now think about how you will get there. How can you make a road trip together more romantic? Maybe you pack your loved one’s favorite snacks or prepare a Spotify playlist of the songs that make you think of them. Those little touches are what it’s all about! 


Maybe you’ve always wanted to fly and experiencing that for the first time together will kick-off your romantic getaway perfectly. But what’s even more romantic than flying? How about riding a train? Taking a couples retreat to Hermann Hill means you can travel from either St. Louis or Kansas City by train! Enjoy the gorgeous Ozark scenery as you head into wine country together. 

Rekindle the Romance

Peggy and Terry know the importance of nurturing their relationship. According to Terry, “if couples are lucky enough to stay together for a long time and become best friends—that’s about as good as it gets.” If someday celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary is one of your marriage goals (and it should be!), then you must start celebrating today!


Don’t wait another minute to shower your partner with the love they deserve. Plan a romantic anniversary getaway in 2020—whether you are celebrating 50 years together or three!


Naturally, we suggest that you experience the award-winning hospitality, high standard of service, and luxurious amenities you will only find at our fun boutique hotel just off the beaten path in the heart of Missouri wine country!
