About

Birk's Gasthaus is a comfortable old Victorian mansion, built in 1886. With some period furniture in the formal ladies parlour, and Claw foot tubs in most of the rooms (some with showers), 8 foot doors and transoms, the mansion is again being used to entertain guests. We have added a Game Room with a 50" Plasma TV, Poker Table, and soon will have a full size Pool Table. Or you can relax on our wraparound covered Verandah and enjoy our quiet location. Only three blocks from Stone Hill Winery and Vintage Resturant.

Celebrating 45 Years together!!

4.0 on July 02, 2014

We had been to Hermann before but wanted to try out a different B & B. We certainly enjoyed the quiet hometown atmosphere of Birk's. Richard was a gracious host and served delicious, generous breakfasts both days.

Check in was much later than desired, but there is plenty to do in town if you still arrive early. Bring earplugs just in case you have noisy neighbors though!


50th Birthday stay

4.0 on May 18, 2014

We reserved several rooms for family and friends for my husband's 50th birthday. The rooms were comfortable and large, but not luxurious. The best part was the availability of several common areas where our group could comfortably congregate. All in all a wonderful experience.


Old world charm

4.0 on May 04, 2014

If you love historical buildings, you will LOVE Birks Gasthaus. My husband and I stayed here for an overnight getaway and fell in love with this place. The owner met us at the door and treated us like family. The building is beyond beautiful for those that love history. The rooms with the smaller beds are really quite small by today's standards, but are typical for that era. They serve a full breakfast and were very accommodating with changing the time so that we could leave early enough to attend ShelbyFest. My husband and I look forward to staying here every time we visit Hermann.


Quaint, Has Character

3.8 on April 29, 2014

Came off a bike ride on the KATY trail and found an old mansion badly need in refurbishing and maintenance, and a lawn full of weeds needing care; but at the same time the mansion was quaint, inviting, and charming. Inn keeper was personable and a great cook! Would do it again. Don't expect a 5 star facility.


Needs work! (Property now called Herzog Mansion)

2.0 on April 16, 2014

My partner and I stayed one night at Birk's Gasthouse (now Herzog Mansion). The house itself is aging a bit ungracefully - it looks like there are some sort of renovations or repairs being done to one side of the property's exterior, but neglect and decay are apparent throughout the interior of the house. Having stayed in several aging homes converted into B&B's, I realize that there is only so much one can to to make accommodations for modern conveniences, but there were swaths of missing trim along the walls, holes in the floor, peeling, cracked, and stained plaster on the ceilings and floors, etc. This B&B needs some significant TLC and a lot of investment to turn things around. Our bed was the squeakiest bed I have ever slept on and, strangely, there wasn't a mattress pad, only a sheet! (Cheap bedding and terribly sad pillows made the sleeping situation less than comfortable). The breakfast was ho-hum at best. Overall this B&B was a big disappointment - the rate charged for one night's lodging is simply scandalous! I wouldn't recommend this establishment to anyone.


Great stay even as renovations proceed

3.8 on April 16, 2014

Birk's is a beautiful old mansion in a quiet neighborhood of Hermann. Just a short 10 minute walk from downtown or Stone Hill Winery it is a charming location. Although the building is undergoing some renovation work right now and there are a few places where wallpaper is peeling and plaster is cracked, the accommodations are comfortable and appealing. The first floor game room and parlor are pluses and provide opportunities for guests to meet each other and interact. The breakfast is well prepared and the host is attentive and eager to please. If you come in on the train, call ahead and he'll come to the station to get you. We enjoyed our stay.


First Anniversary

4.2 on April 03, 2014

My wife and I spent our first wedding anniversary in Hermann, and had a blast. Birk's is close to Stone Hill winery, and easy to get to by the Hermann Trolley. It's an old house with all the expected creaks and moans, but Room #3 was comfortable, bright and pleasant, right down to the rubber duck in the bathtub. Our host, was friendly and accommodating but never intrusive, and prepared a terrific breakfast.We would definitely go back.


This place was GREAT!

4.6 on December 30, 2013

Went for one night during the Kriskrindl Market in December and this place was the perfect end to a great day. Highly recommend if you are new to B&B's and don't know what to expect. Breakfast was delish and the mansion is spectacular.
