Bedrooms 1
Property type studio


About the property

Patio Suite For 2 With Private Garden Entrance And Missouri River Views.

The contemporary red house is located on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River in Hermann, the most beautiful small town in Missouri. Just five blocks from the Historic District, Spirit Hill is a quiet retreat that's less than a 5-minute drive to anywhere in town - wineries, museums, restaurants, shops, wedding venues, marina, bike trail, Amtrak.

The Patio Suite includes a queen-sized bed, kitchenette with breakfast bar, private bath with oversized whirlpool tub and separate tiled shower, plus a large living area with gas fireplace, plus dining table and chairs inside and out.

Coffee and tea supplies are provided, but breakfast and all meals are up to you. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, microwave, small refrigerator, toaster oven and even an electric skillet. There's a gas grill just outside the door.

Hosts are on-site in the lower level Innkeepers Suite to answer any needs you may have. We enjoy meeting you on arrival, but after that, the suite is your own unless you need something. We're glad to suggest grocery locations, restaurants, wineries and activities if you like.

In operation for more than 12 years, we enjoy sharing Spirit Hill's comfortable spaces and beautiful views with our guests, some of whom have been joining us for many repeat visits.

The Patio Suite has a comfortable queen bed with reading lights and a privacy curtain. Lounge area has two overstuffed chairs and a queen-sized sofa bed. The gas fireplace with remote lets you keep the temperature just where you like it. There's also a desk, plus table and chairs.

Parking is available off-street in a graveled lot or right under the deck for the ultimate convenience and protection in case of inclement weather.

About Marsha Nyberg

We have enjoyed sharing our beautiful Spirit Hill Guest House and Gardens for more than 12 years. Just a few years ago, we did an extensive remodeling project to make the space as gracious and comfortable as possible for our guests. Gary enhances the breathtaking views with his loving care of the gardens.

Marsha Nyberg purchased this studio in 2000

Why Marsha Nyberg chose Hermann

We discovered Spirit Hill serendipitously during a stay at a Hermann B&B. The view was amazing, and there was a For Sale sign in the yard of the house. We had no plans to purchase property, but we couldn't pass up the opportunity, and have been thrilled with our choice every since.

What makes this studio unique

The charming town of Hermann offers activities for everyone, from more than a half dozen wineries in the area to historical museums, shops and restaurants. The beauty of the Missouri River is unmatched. Other activities include the Katy Trail bike trail just across the bridge, plus a golf course and a zip line.

Charming. Roomy. Scenic. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been using VRBO for many years and have never been disappointed. Spirit Hill Guest House was by far our most outstanding getaway experience. We specifically searched for a getaway with an oversized tub and Spirit Hill Guest house delivered! Our hosts Marsha and Gary were gracious and accommodating. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset fire together with Gary and Marsha as we learned a bit of their history wuth their home. The setting for this rental is nestled into the banks of the Missouri river along the forested banks and makes for a truly romantic experience. The local wineries were the best MO wineries in the state. The local distilleries and breweries are also worth visiting while staying in Hermann at the Spirit Hill Guest House. We were never short on dining options and enjoyed the eclectic restaurant choices Hermann offered. There zero hesitation in making Spirit Hill Guest House a "must" consider when choosing where to stay in Hermann.

Had a great stay, felt very welcome, loved the fireplace and hot tub. Very romantic setting for couples wanting to get away. Herman is always a beautiful stay. Make sure you eat early most food places close at 8 and are closed Mon and Tues. Next time we will bring some frozen pizzas lol.

Good accommodations and nice location.

  • 4 of 5

Good accommodations, nice view of the river. We liked that it was close to town but still felt like we were away. We were on the lower level and the only drawback was the second night there was a large party that came into the upper level and was fairly noisy.

Owner's Response: We’re glad you enjoyed your stay. We love sharing the space and the stunning views. Because the house was built for a single family, it was not possible to add hotel-type soundproofing when we remodeled recently. We added all the amenities we could, such as a private bath for each bedroom. However, there are times when the sounds of one group’s celebrations may interfere with others preference for quiet. We regret that you experienced one of these times. If you return to Hermann, we would like the opportunity to provide you with the more peaceful experience you expect.

Beautiful, comfortable, and accomodating.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came to Hermann for our 5th anniversary and requested the Patio Suite way in advance. There were no issues with the room what so ever. The room is very large with an amazing view. There is a covered patio that overlooks the garden and river if you come when there is a downpour like we did. You also have the option to park under covered parking which again was great because the weather didn't cooperate with our trip.

The bed was comfortable, the room was cozy. Tastefully decorated from what seems like well traveled hosts. When we make our way back to Hermann this will be the first place we contact!
