Right in the heart of Hermann’s historic downtown are The Shanty & The Shed, two guest houses that embody the unique Hermann spirit. Nestled on the corner of West Fifth and Mozart Streets, The Shanty & The Shed are just .7 miles from the Amtrak station and under a mile from nearly everything in Hermann. Need a ride? You can catch the Trolley or town Uber right outside the door. The two beautiful houses are connected by a spacious, yet tranquil, yard that is perfect for gatherings of friends and family, cookouts, fireside chats, and games. 

The guest houses’ proprietor, Becky Jecha, first opened the doors to The Shanty in June 2018, and The Shed was soon to follow. Each guest house is unique, allowing guests to choose their perfect space to stay for romantic weekends, friend trips, and family gatherings.

Fitted with lavish amenities including a pillow and blanket buffet, lush king-sized beds, fresh linens, a full coffee bar, and a great kitchen equipped with everything you need to show off your culinary talents, you’ll be more than comfortable at either The Shanty or The Shed.
