We stayed there this past weekend to celebrate my birthday. While we only live just a few miles out of town, we came here just to get away for the weekend. The home is absolutely beautiful and the hospitality was amazing. Gary and Ramona were so very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was fantastic! Thank you for making a little getaway so wonderful!

Wonderful Place to Relax

5 on December 05, 2013

My husband and I took an overnight getaway and stayed at this wonderful B & B. Gary and Ramona were gracious hosts and we enjoyed visiting with them. The room was nice, the bed very comfortable and the food was wonderful. We highly recommend this place.

First Time Stay

5 on August 08, 2013

From the moment Ramona met us at the door until we left we had a very good experience for our first time at a B&B. Their house is very well maintained and very clean. Ramona could not have been more accommodating. She is also a very good cook. Her breakfast with Gary's help was delicious. Gary has done a superb job of maintaining a very big house. If you stay be sure to engage Gary and Ramona in a conversation. They are both very interesting and fun to talk with. They have many years in the B&B business and many stories to share.

A most wonderful overnight stay in New Ulm, MN

My husband and I recently stayed overnight in New Ulm, MN. Not knowing anything about the area, we consulted Trip Adviser and found that many travelers had given Deutche Strasse B&B very high marks. We chose the Castle Room which was spacious and very clean (much appreciated!) Gary and Ramona are such gracious hosts, who have years of experience seeing to every whim of their guests. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast of all homemade offerings while hearing some fun stories spun by our hosts. We wish we could have stayed longer and would highly recommend this B&B if you're staying in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for sharing your experience at our B&B with others. We appreciate hearing positive feedback; we refer to New Ulm as Pleasantville and hope that you return and stay longer.

Wonderful Stay

We were hoping for a B and B that would be cozy and relaxing, and our expectations here were met. Gary and Ramona were amazing innkeepers....friendly and hospitable. The food was absolutely wonderful. We would definitely recommend coming here, and we will stay again if we are in the area.

Birthday Weekend

5 on September 17, 2012

Went here with 3 other couples. Ramona and Gary treated us like Kings and Queens. The arranged a limo tour of the different wineries and breweries in the area and the grand kids even made me a birthday cake. HIGHLY recommend. A+

We live in St. Cloud and decided to take a day trip to New Ulm. We discovered Deutsche Straße B&B and were delighted! Gary and Ramona are experienced, enthusiastic hosts who provide the true gemütlichkeit comfort that Germans are known for. Gemütlichkeit is that special in-depth hospitality that only the best and most caring of hosts are capable of providing. While it doesn't translate well into English, experiencing it at Deutsche Straße means knowledgeable, fascinating hosts; delicious foods; relaxing environment and all those special touches that can only be learned with a stay at this accommodation! Wow! What a treat it was! Louis & Bobbi Foote, Victorian Oaks B&B, St. Cloud, MN

Absolutly AMAZING!

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a bike ride to New Ulm. Ramona and Gary welcomed us to their home, made us feel free to come and go as we pleased, they offered wonderful conversation, and I think the best part of my stay was the breakfast Ramona cooked up for us. Never in my life have I had breakfast desert and the chocolate cake with raspberries and whipped cream did me in! I would go back in a heart beat just for Ramona's cooking! They have a beautiful home full of history and I would like to thank them one more time for sharing it with us and making my anniversay one I will never forget.

Crystal room experience

5 on February 16, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed at the B&B and were just amazed at how wonderful our experience was. Wonderful hospitality and gracious hosts. Ramona is a great cook and we couldn't get enough of her food! We loved the Crystal room as it was very cozy and inviting. Definitely add the romantic package to your room as it is worth every penny. We already booked a couple of stays in the near future and look forward to it.

An experience to take in!

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast and it won't be our last! The Innkeepers were extremely friendly and welcomed questions about their beautiful home and it's history. The rooms were spotless and very inviting. Gary & Ramona have done a wonderful job creating a relaxing environment and treating their guests like Royalty! Laurie & David
