Meyers Hilltop Farm

We went to Hermann Missouri on our way to St. Louis for my training for my new job.  There was actually a detour to Bentonville for a funeral the day before, but the stop in Hermann had been planned for a while.  Ray and I stayed at Meyer's Hilltop Farm B & B.  Hermann is interesting in so many ways, one of which is that there is one motel and over sixty B&Bs.  I like B&Bs better anyway. 
Meyers is on the other side of the river from Hermann above the Katy Trail.  They get a lot of business from people on the trail who stop to spend the night.  Since it is up a long hill, I can only imagine the exertion bikers would feel after a day on the trail and then that climb.
The farm house is over a hundred years old and very well decorated.  Some B&B's go into overkill with antiques, that that is not the case here.
Our room included a bath which isn't always the case and a very comfortable bed.  The Meyers were a friendly and gracious couple with a great deal to share about places to go and things to do in the area. Best of all, we were able to kick back, read and watch all the hummingbirds on the front porch.
