We did an overnight to Herman from StL and I researched much on which B&B would be a great place to stay as well as a good value (cash is tight so we spend carefully). Well the reviews on this place are 100% correct, and THEN SOME! I feel this is not a place you just "stay" but a B&B that you are visiting old friends with Maggie and Eldon. Great hosts. Hilltop was written up in National Geographic Travelers magazine April 2004 with a few quotes from Maggie herself. Her oatmeal pancakes, sensational. Comlimentary rides are available to and from Herman so unless you want to pay more for a B&B in Herman, the value is very good. Maggie and Eldon are terrific hosts, I would love to have them as neighbors. The B&B is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Stay here for a great experience and save a few dollars while you're at it. The quality at their rates are superb, I would recommend this place without hesitation. Side note: the restaurant at Stone Hill winery serves delicious food at reasonable prices. Make reservations just to be sure, it's not large.
