Everything you need for a perfect vacation!

A private porch overlooks the Himmelstreppe with Hillside views of the Village, the Missouri River, Hermannhof Winery, the Tin Mill Brewery and the Hofgarten. High-speed Internet, flat screen cable TV, personal coffee service and mini refrigerator. 

This cottage was built by Johannes Blust in the 1840’s, one of the original German settlement Society members, who was granted his lot in 1838. Originally a carpenter from Wurttemberg, Germany, Blust became a winemaker. By 1870, Mr. Blust had acquired two additional acres for the production of grapes and made 700 gallons of wine.  (If you explore the north side of the cottage, you will discover Blust's cellar where the wine was produced.)  He received the sum of $575.00 for his efforts. Johann’s son, Julius, continued to produce wine in the area throughout the 1880’s. The Blust Haus is one of the oldest houses in Hermann. It has been restored on its original site. The house is half timbered, a hand hewn post and beam structure. It features brick “nogging” or infill between the posts. This is also known as fachewerk.

Blust Haus is also the location of the Himmelstreppe room.

As our guest, you will receive a bottle of complimentary Hermannhof White Lady of Starkenberg Reisling, semi-sweet wine. With Bright characters of citrus, green apple, and spice, this wine will pair nicely with the complimentary meat, cheese, and fruit plate you will find in your room.
