About Steve Vollmer

We are a family of 5! We all love Cross Country running, tennis, biking, and, of course, vacations. Lisa and Steve met at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois.

Steve Vollmer purchased this house in 2012

Why Steve Vollmer chose Hermann

We have always enjoyed Hermann's historic homes, wines, Katy Trail, and the community's German roots. Jerry and Marilyn Snell have done wonders with this historic home. We couldn't pass ownership up.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the privacy and the DeFlorin home's history. We are right next to the historic St. George Catholic Church, just a few blocks away from the bustle of downtown. What a great view of the valley!

Interesting, historical house.

  • 4 of 5

Loved this interesting house that the owners have made very comfortable. Wished we were staying longer so we could enjoy the outdoor seating area. The only warning I would give is there are three floors in this house and because of the age of the house, the stairs are very steep! There is no bathroom on the upper floor where there are two bedrooms. If you wake in the middle of the night, hold on to that handrail!

This house was so charming and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Mother/daughter trip to Hermann was by far one of the best things we've all done together. The owner, Steve and driver, Buzz made our trip amazing! We loved staying in this charming house and still being able to use the hotel amenities. Such a great trip and we will most definitely be back.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

I cannot believe that the people who wrote the other reviews were in the same house we stayed in. It was not charming it was dingy and worn. The both stairways are dangerous. Old is not the same thing as historical. We would not go back or recommend it.

Owner's Response: Well Darn! We are sorry that you did not enjoy our historic DeFlorin Stone Cottage! It is one of the most popular in Hermann and has an awesome view of the town and St. George Church. We have served Thousands of Visitors with supporting positive feedback (and without a lower star rating) shown on multiple reservation sites. Do come back to Hermann, try a different home, and enjoy this great small town. Please note that we did complete a service and cleanliness inspection on the inside of the home and the exterior the Monday after this stay. The home is a beautiful, frequently photographed Gasconade County historically designated property with Vintage, Historically Correct Period Memorabilia. We love to hear the stories from our guests and enjoy seeing cars driving by pointing/taking pictures of the home! Find one of the remaining few open weekends and take a peek for yourself! P.S. The Stairs are Historical and Narrow, and People Challenged by Stairs Should View the Pictures that have been available on this website to see if they are suitable for their stay. Take Care! Steve V., Owner

Great Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A very relaxing and enjoyable stay at a wonderful historic home, loved the stone work through out. Plenty of room for our group of 6, nice kitchen where we cooked some meals, and unique views from the patio. The stairs could be a challenge for some, but they add to the charm of the house. This will defiantly stay on our list for places to stay when we go to Hermann.

Bachelorette Weekend Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the DeFlorin for my sister's bachelorette weekend. It was the perfect house for us! There was plenty of room for eight to stay (we had six) and enough bathrooms for us all to get ready. We especially loved the patio area in back of the house. The only downside is the steep staircase. This would not be a safe house for young children or anyone with disabilities. For our purposes, though, it was great! We'd love to come back!

We had a relaxing time in a beautiful, historic home with all the conveniences we could ask for! The unique architecture of this home built into a hill was delightful, and the views beautiful. Loved it!
