Rhineland - The Doll House
Denise and Mike from Lees Summit MO on 11/02/2017 01:42 PM:
We stayed at the Doll House for the second time while riding the Katy. This is an excellent and comfortable B&B. Melissa had it decorated nicely for fall. Everything was very neat and clean. Melissa had homemade cookies and lemonade waiting for us. The breakfast was wonderful.
The cafe across the street was closed when we arrived so Melissa took us to the market to pick up dinner. She was very generous with the use of their dining area and plates. I am sure we had much better wine than we would have across the street. ;o)

Big shout out to the City of Rhineland for having public bathrooms open near the ball fields along with a vending machine and a nice shelter. My husband & I were on our long day, riding into a headwind in hot weather and took a very welcome break here. We really appreciated your facilities!

What a lovely experience. Richard and Myrta were wonderful hosts. The accomodations were perfect and the fool!!! Well, no words can describe. One word of caution to cyclists, if you've already ridden several miles that day, you may want to have Richard come to Rhineland to pick you up instead of riding out to their place. It's a grueling 2 miles, mostly up hill. I was pooped!!! Of course, Myrta made up for it by fixing us the most delicious dinner I have ever eaten!!! Thanks Richard and Myrta for a lovely stay.

MRBCBC from Kc on 06/28/2014 08:15 PM:
Was Richard equipped to take 4 bikes up the hill?

CRAIG from SE IOWA on 05/29/2014 01:49 PM:
HEADS UP!!! 3-4" deep loose rock just before the ball diamond or at least there was memorial day weekend. This is like quicksand and will swallow a bike whole. You've been warned.

Great Stay at The Rendleman Home
Mathews from Houston, TX on 03/24/2014 05:27 PM:
Located just a few feet from the Katy Trail. Great company, food and entertainment. Very comfortable amenities and excellent price. The pineapple fosters was to die for! The view from the nearby conservation deck is breath taking and well worth the hike. Doug is a host extraordinaire. A must see stop on the trail.

After a long first day on the trail, we stopped in here for a quick drink and to watch some of the STL Cardinals post season game. We were pleased to find out we stop on $1 burger Thursdays. It was the BEST hamburger we have! Being that it was a general store as well, we shared a $1 of chips and a $5 pitcher. It was a perfect dinner. Our bikes were secure outside as well as we felt very welcomed by the locals. In addition, next the bar, there was an air pump in which we checked our tires pressure. Perfect place to stop on the trail.

Rhineland - last chance!
rich lauer from mckittrick on 06/29/2012 04:47 PM:
we hope to be open weekends July 13 and on
will have water available and some foods. It was a challenge to renovate the Merck but breathing life into her is another challenge. Hope you can visit or see us on themerck.com Thanks

Hank from New Haven, MO on 06/29/2012 05:57 PM:
I wrote it in another post but Loutre Market in fact is very easy to get to from McKittrick trailhead. On west side of tunnel under Highway 19 is short spur trail, from there just pedal across highway to Loutre. 3 minute pedal at most. Of course if Mercantile is open then just go there.

Ate here twice on our last ride. The food is above average and worth the money. The service was not the greatest.

Anonymous from Hermann on 08/29/2009 12:33 PM:
Angie puts out a good meal. It is a favorite local hangout. Closed at 2 pm on Sunday and closed on Monday. Otherwise dig in. I have eaten there more times than I can count. Sometimes the service is right on and sometimes it's a little slow. Kinda depends on the number of guests there at the time and what you order. If you are in a hurry let 'em know so they can maybe bump up the order. Chicken is great but takes a while. Holler cross the room for more tea, they won't mind.

jd from gkc on 08/29/2009 01:24 PM:
Their country-fried-chicken lunches are terrific, possibly the best in the region for the money. I liked their chili, too, as a snack or smaller meal. :)

Anonymous on 06/04/2011 10:21 PM:
Their sweet potato fries with honey butter were awesome! The service was good, but wasn't overly friendly. A nice little place!

Paul Toigo from Kansas City, MO on 08/29/2011 05:39 PM:
The big breakfast really hit the spot. Especially since we built our hunger riding 20 miles before breakfast.

Carole from St Peters on 06/12/2011 09:29 PM:
Had a great stay at the Dollhouse Bed and Breakfast. Very comfortable, and Amanda is a most welcoming hostess.

Loutre Lane B&B (Rhineland)
Curt and Kathy from Silex, MO on 08/22/2010 01:31 PM:
June 21, 2010- Loutre Lane B&B is a darling place to stay with full accommodations and amenities like your own home. The room accommodations were very comfortable and spotless. Herman is about 5 miles from Loutre Lane B&B and the local restaurant in Rhineland was closed for dinner, so Lucy offered to drive us to and from Herman for dinner. We took her up on the offer since it was so HOT and we were tired from our long Katy Trail bicycling trip. Lucy recommended a fantastic Chinese restaurant. Lucy is quite the interior decorator as well, seeing her home designs and furnishings is worth the trip alone. And talk about a great breakfast the next morning with fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, and muffins. We really enjoyed visiting with Lucy and look forward to staying at Loutre Lane B&B again. Lucy is a great hostess, a fantastic cook and interior decorator!

Paul & Fiona from Leavenworth, KS on 04/16/2010 07:44 AM:
Our stay at the Doll House was fantastic, as expected from all of the prior comments. Amanda was a great hostess, and her extensixe breakfast was welcome before hitting the trail for a big day's riding. The rooms are immaculate and the beds very comfortable. The balcony is a must for dusk sundowners and dawn coffee - the photos don't do the place justice. Highly recommended.

Bethany from Austin on 03/29/2010 07:56 PM:
We stopped at the Doll House when we passed through Rhineland (March 2010) and I highly recommend it. The house was beautiful and Amanda was SO NICE! She helped us plan out our next few days on the trail and suggested the bar and grill across the street. (We were pretty hungry!)I plan on staying there when I bike the trail again some day with my parents.

My family and I stayed at the Doll House B&B in August. We will stay there again. The accommodations were perfect and there is plenty of room to spread out. The porches are relaxing, the peaches from the tree were perfect :'), the ice cold water and lemonade that were ready for us upon arrival, breakfast...everything was perfect!

Doll House B&B (Rhineland)
Clayton, Denise, Frank, and Mickie from Archie, MO. on 10/26/2009 11:41 AM:
Oct. 5-09 The Doll House lived up to the reviews. Amanda was a superb hostess. We piggy backed with the family who stayed there that night too as they ordered chicken and dumplings for supper. Great stuff! The cost was very resonable @ $10/person for supper. Breakfast was equally fantastic. We were met with a warm smile and plenty of cookies, coffee, and lemonade. The washing of our clothes was a GIANT +. We would not be hesitant to stay again should the schedule put us there. Thank you Amanda for a great stay.

Michele & Richie on 07/25/2009 02:16 PM:
Amanda - the amazing host!

Unfortunately, the owners of the Trailside Bar & Grill (across the highway from the Doll House B&B) were on vacation the day we arrived in Rhineland. Amanda knew we were hungry after a 50-mile day and offered to pick-up pizza from the local store a few miles away.

We had the house to ourselves. We ate pizza, watched a movie downstairs, then retreated to The Bunny Room for a restful night's sleep. Oh yeah - breakfast was incredible!

Julie from crestwood,mo on 06/23/2009 02:26 PM:
This place has the most breathtaking views all around the property. Our room was just lovely and relaxing.

If you are able to visit when Myrta has the High tea take advantage of it. It was wonderful! Breakfast was just fabulous. I look forward to visiting again very soon.

Bar and grill is located right off the trail. A friend and I ate lunch there on Thursday 10-16-2008. They offered a very good cheesburger. Thursday's are &1 hamburger days, so we ate cheap. They also have homemade pie. The coconut cream was very good.

My sisters and I enjoyed a GREAT, filling, hot breakfast here....including 50 cent coffee (that's virtually unheard of) Our total bill for the 3 of us was only $7.50. Keep up the good work Clarence!!!!!!

K Reed from Ballwin, MO on 09/12/2008 09:32 PM:
We didn't get here until after 5:00 pm and Lucy had a meeting to go to, but after a quick shower she took us to the local bar for dinner. Breakfast was a full breakfast with fruit, eggs, bacon, and homemade bisquits. Lucy was very friendly and willing to help us with the little things like drying some clothes for us. Loutre Lane B&B is worth the climb up the hill.

Jim and Grand daughter Kaitlin from Ballwin, MO on 07/02/2008 08:55 PM:
A fantastic, quiet, down to earth, home in the country, with great atmosphere, food, accommodations and people. Have Richard pick you up at the trail and enjoy the ride down the hill in the morning. It gets your legs back quickly. Relax in the hot tub, take a shower, catch lightning bugs, smell the lavender, watch the yellow finches feed, play washers, and swing on the porch swing while looking at the rolling hills. In the morning you will have a fresh, healthy, delicious, home made breakfast that you will not forget. Myrta's Swiss upbringing adds charm to her home atmosphere and food. Highly recommend for a unique and memorable experience that is hard to find anymore.

J Chambers from Arnold, MD & W. Lafayette, IN on 06/21/2008 12:59 PM:
Doll House B&B, Rhineland 30 May 2008. Biking with two teen age grandsons from Sedalia to St. Charles. One of us had a blowout 2 ½ miles from Rhineland. Sidewall of the tire with a one inch hole. We walked the last two and a half miles on a warm afternoon and were met with the best lemonade we have ever tasted. Amanda was a gracious and kind hostess. A great breakfast. Highly recommended. We would stay there again.

Pat from Fort Worth on 06/04/2008 06:48 PM:
We stayed in the Angel room in mid-May and enjoyed every minute. The place is serene and you can't help but relax and savor the moment. Amanda works hard to come up with new recipes and think of every possible need. Truly a great Bed and Breakfast Inn!

Jerry D from Round Rock, Texas on 06/02/2008 08:20 AM:
Doll House B&B - I recommend planning your Katy Trail experience around your reservation at the Doll House. Amanda keeps a very neat and clean place, bathrooms clean and modern with lots of hot water, a bit of whimsey in the room decoration. You can relax in the spacious living room or outside on the covered porch. Don't leave without having her give you the history. A very well run B&B.

Trailside Restaurant - They have other things on the menu, but why would you not want their superior fried chicken!

I'll be happy to expound on my whole Katy Trail ride, email me at jerryd@acyclistpublishing.com

True! That cafe puts out great food with several sides to choose from. The prices are right as well.

Very nice establishment. Food was great, but the locals gave me a few odd looks...must have been my shoes. Good Food and nice selection!

lisa coplin from leadington, mo on 11/22/2010 12:13 AM:
My boyfriend and I were coming from Lake of the Ozarks home to Leadington, Mo and stopped to have a bite. He had the grilled ham and cheese and fries and I had fried chicken gizzards and tater tots. The food was so delicious that we got second orders of the same foods! The service was excellent and the prices very fair. Keep up the great work!

I stayed at the "Doll House" two nights while exploring the KATY Trail, and enjoyed the facility very much. After riding all day in the August heat and humidy, the cold lemonade and comfort of the B & B was a life saver. I highly recommend staying there.

MAH from Blue Springs, MO on 08/07/2007 09:28 AM:
I've stayed at the Doll House twice and highly recommend staying there! Amanda is a wonderfull hostess, the rooms are big and comfy, we had fresh cookies on arrival, and the Trailside Bar and Grill across the road serves great food!

John Seng from Rockville, MD on 07/08/2007 09:13 PM:
Thank you, Amanda, for a wonderful B&B! The rooms were perfect, and the entire home was beyond charming and spacious. The perfect respite for a pair of worn-out bikers.

Macho men shouldn't be put off by the "Doll" name. Ask Amanda the history behind it. Hey, I stayed in the Bunny room and lived to tell about it - my son has forgotten to kid me about it. Seriously, we would stay here again on the road in a heartbeat.

The next morning, we left reluctantly, because a human being only has so much room for such a fantastic breakfast!

Well done Amanda and family.

We rode in from Jefferson City, arrived around 4:30pm. The room was cozy and peaceful, we

were able to take a quick shower and nice nap before walking to the resturaunt to eat. The

breakfast was wonderful with plenty of bacon, sausage, french toast and omlet. Great orange

juice. Very peaceful accomodations, was only awaken by the smell of bacon cooking.

MAH from Blue Springs, MO on 06/12/2007 10:28 AM:
We also stayed here last fall. It was great, I don't have enough thumbs to give it the number of thumbs up it deserves.

9/25/06 Amanda is the "Hostess with the mostest". I was met with Lemonade & chocolate chip cookies. The room was very clean & neat with plenty of hot water for a relaxing shower. She went out of way to accomodate me & two other guests went she drove us into Hermann for diner after we found out the Trailside restraunt in Rhineland closed on Mondays at 5:00PM. I would highly recommend the Doll House for lodging while on the KATY trail.

Paul from St. Clair on 06/07/2007 04:25 PM:
I, too, had a wonderful stay at The Doll House B&B. The room was nice and the bed felt great after a near 90-mile ride. I was later than I hoped and Amanda and Jeff were very accommodating. I was the only one there for the night, but Amanda went all out for breakfast--It was GREAT! I highly recommend this B&B!

They had cold beer and the Food Network goign when we arrived around 3 PM on a Friday. Funny thing, we ran into some of the same locals we'd shared lunch with in Portland. They apparently migrated over the course of the afternoon.

Bob from Stl on 10/26/2006 03:33 PM:
Lucy was an incredible host. She had cold beverages awaiting us when we got off the 100 mile trek that day, taxi'd us into town for dinner and cooked us the largest breakfast spread I have ever seen. It was incredible! Here is a an overview of our trip (http://www.drj-racing.com/katy2006.html)

We had a wonderful 2 night stay with Lucy. She made us feel right at home and opened her home to the 4 of us. Not only were the rooms wonderful, but the breakfasts were excellent. We will definitely stay at Loutre Lane B&B the next time we are in the area. We also feel that we made a new friend. Thanks Lucy.

MAH from Blue Springs, MO on 09/19/2006 12:56 PM:
I've also stayed at Loutre Lane B&B twice. Had a wonderful stay both times. Even though it's a bit of a hill to get up to her place, it is well worth it.

BLM from St Louis on 09/19/2006 09:58 PM:
Myself and a group of friends stay with Lucy every fall on our "Katy Trail Extravaganza presented by Little Buddy". This will be our 3rd time staying with her coming up in October and it is always a pleasure. She runs a great business and makes you feel right at home. See you in October Lucy!

We stayed here this past week on our first Katy Trail bike trip and I would reccommend this B & B to anyone. We were welcomed at the front door with delicious cookies and lemonade and the rooms were so cute and well taken care of. The breakfast was so yummy and the whole experience was first rate. Definitely put this on your list!

Dennis from Boonville MO on 06/03/2006 10:31 PM:
Doll House Bread and Breakfast.....What a wonderful experience. Amanda and her family treat you better than just a guest. I was so impressed with everything from the greeting to the breakfast that was fit for a king. You can't go wrong making this a stop on any trip down the trail.

Karen F from St. Louis on 05/26/2006 05:39 PM:
We stayed at the Doll House B&B on the first night of our Katy Trail trip. Wow! Everything was great! Amanda was so accomodating and helpful. She greeted us with chocolate chip cookies and lemonade. Yum! It really hit the spot after a long day bicycling on the trail. Dinner across the street was really good as well. And the breakfast was absolutely delicious. This is a must stop place.

Ron Bangle from Garden City, Kansas on 05/01/2006 11:34 AM:
We stopped in for a late lunch last friday afternoon while riding the trail for the first time. What a treat as this friendly and clean establishment served up a great catfish sandwich and excellent chocolate pie. Our price for three large softdrinks, three specials and a slice of pie came to only $13!!!!!!!!!

Stop here.......... you will be glad you did.

Renee' from Independence, MO on 11/19/2005 05:11 PM:
We went to Les Lavandes for my husband's birthday weekend and we came away changed forever. We will always be spoiled to enjoy anywhere else now that we have had Myrta's cooking and Richard's service! We felt like we had a new family. We intended to ride on the Katy Trail but it got very cold and rainy so we spent the day walking through the Shrine next door and touring Hermann a little bit. We spent late afternoon out in the hot tub in the cool misty outdoors and then had the most delicious food we had ever tasted! We will definitely go back as often as we can for a weekend getaway or longer. They are open for Christmas, too and do an old fashioned European Christmas tree lighting with candles and carols! Thanks Richard and Myrta for showing us how Bed and Breakfasts should be!

This was a great lunch stop. They grilled a bunch of vegies for me. Plus they had homemade pies barely cooled from the oven. These people are wonderful...Friendliest we met on the entire trail.

Lisa from St Louis on 06/25/2005 04:37 PM:
My niece and I recently stayed at Loutre Lane B&B. The B&B was very clean and comfortable. Lucy made you feel right at home and made the best breakfeast we had the entire trip. I would defintly stay at her B&B agin.

heidi from st. louis on 08/30/2004 01:44 PM:
I couldn't agree more with your impression of the Doll House B & B. Amanda & Jeff are great people, the rooms are clean and the bathrooms large. The breakfast is delicious as is the food across the road at the diner/bar.

Amanda from Rhineland on 09/15/2004 08:39 PM:
Thank you so much for your kind words!!!

I hope you come back sometime!

Agreed. Very much enjoyed it when I stopped there last September.

Memorial Day 2005 trip: Amanda fixed us breakfast an hour before her regular schedule when we told her we wanted to hit the trail early. And what a great breakfast! Truly a wonderful stay -- and right on the trail. Nice to stay in a place that is so clearly tied to the Katy experience. I was happy that we skipped Hermann lodging (which was full anyway) for Rhineland!

Great food and service; homey (Trailside Bar & Grill in Rhineland)

This is a friendly place with great specials, delicious food, and reasonable prices. Prompt service. Very clean. So comfy that it was difficult to get back on the trail! Met some bikers (mid October) who said they had no restaurant for 26 miles going east from Rhineland. They had enjoyed the food so much at Trailside that they had returned the next day. There is a bar/restaurant at Portland (looked ok). Guess the bar at Treloar is not reliable on the hours?

Ray (webmaster) on 10/22/2004 04:54 PM:
Thanks for mentioning the Treloar Bar hours - I just called them to get their hours, and updated our listing for them. Seems they changed their hours since the last time I talked to them a few months ago.

Dan and Jamie A from St Louis, MO on 10/29/2004 08:23 AM:
By the time we got to the restaurant we were so hungry. There is not really any good place to eat until you get to Rhineland (between Tebbetts and Rhineland). We were really just expecting to find something, anything to eat but it turned out the food was really good. Between the two of us we had barbeque pork, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, WONDERFUL german potato salad and green beans. This was definitley a refreshing stop. You can even order sandwiches to go (which we did for the ride to Peers). PS on Sunday they close at 2:00pm.
