One of the many appeals of the charming Hermann area is the history and authenticity that radiates through the town. Several area businesses are located in majestic buildings and homes preserved from the 19th and early 20th centuries. One of these beautiful structures is Retrohaus, a unique guesthouse created by a family that has called Hermann their home for five generations and cherishes the community and its rich history.

Built in 1909, Retrohaus maintains much of the home’s original structure and exhibits a distinctively retro style, while also offering guests the comforts provided by modern renovations. At Retrohaus, up to six guests are able to enjoy the entire home to themselves for a unique and unforgettable getaway.

After growing up with three other siblings in Retrohaus and moving on to their own careers, Dan Kuebler and Nancy (Kuebler) Coba returned to their childhood home after the loss of their parents. As a way to celebrate the home their parents had lived in for 60 years, and with a strong desire to share the place that had provided them so many happy memories, Dan and Nancy converted Retrohaus into a fun and inviting place for visitors to experience the perfect Hermann excursion.

Mid-century decor brings you back in time

The unique, groovy, and vibrant mood of Retrohaus is immediately noticeable. Vintage decor and light fixtures are complemented by beautiful furnishings, some of which were handcrafted by Dan and Nancy’s father, Herb. Comfort and authentic style are the goals of every furnishing, accessory, and detail in Retrohaus, and the home’s character will give you the good vibes everyone deserves on a getaway.

Dan and Nancy strive to bring their guests back to a simpler time. Retrohaus’ groovy, mid-century decor will transport you to another era and all the positive memories of that time. As guests walk in the door, they will be greeted with a bottle of wine from one of the many exceptional Hermann wineries along with an assortment of hand-selected goodies. These are only the first of many treats that you will appreciate during your stay.

Thoughtful amenities for an unforgettable retreat

When you aren’t exploring the Hermann area and all it has to offer, you’ll discover the many ways to relax at the house. Enjoy a warm mug from the complimentary coffee/tea bar on the front porch that overlooks the beautiful German town, or relax from the privacy of the patio while you indulge in an old-fashioned root beer float. (Retrohaus provides all the fixings and vintage A&W mugs to enjoy them in, of course!) Lounge on the patio around the propane fire-pit with a freshly-popped bowl of popcorn from the home’s retro popcorn popper and unwind with your friends or family as you savor the happy tranquility that Retrohaus provides.

If you’re eating in, you can cook at Retrohaus with ease in the bright, welcoming, fully- equipped kitchen. Embrace traditional German cuisine and add a side of our very own “Farmer Dan’s” fresh fermented sauerkraut, provided during your stay, with your favorite brat or sausage! The vintage barware in the incredible retro bar will inspire your sophisticated style; whether you are enjoying a local wine out of our lovely stemware or shaking up a martini in our vintage set, dinner and drinks will be a highlight of your trip.

Not only is the house transformed by its abundance of retro fixtures, but it is equipped with the modern conveniences guests should expect as well! Relax with Roku TV or the vintage-inspired DVD player and endless DVDs; groove to the oldies on the old-time record player; or break open the classic game cabinet and reminisce about the “good old days.” You will never be at a loss for something to do during your stay.

After a full day of festivities, you will appreciate the solitude and comfort of Retrohaus’ sleeping spaces. Each of the home’s three bedrooms features a lush king-sized bed, vanity, dresser, cozy robes, ceiling fans, and white-noise machine. Dan and Nancy have meticulously and lovingly worked to assure guests have a relaxing retreat during their stay. The vintage decor, much of it from Dan and Nancy’s childhood, adds to the charm of the rooms.
