The three of us, Michele, Lisa, and Dawn, are sisters. Locals refer to us as “the Derby girls.” We were born and raised on a farm just south of Hermann. We attended St. George School eight years and graduated from Hermann High School. The oldest of us, Michele, works at a local bank and lives in Hermann with her daughter who is a student at St. George. Lisa, the middle sister, is a sixth grade reading teacher who lives north of Hermann with her husband Nick. The youngest of us, Dawn, also lives in Hermann and works at a daycare.

All three of us were employed at guest houses here in Hermann during our high school and college years. Dawn first started working for Mick and Michele, previous owners of the Grapevine, more than eight years ago. Mick always encouraged Dawn to someday purchase a guest house of her own, so it’s quite a coincidence that we are purchasing one of their guest houses. As some of you may know, Mick recently passed, but his wife Michele has so kindly taken the time to pass along her knowledge and experience to help make this transition as smooth as possible.

We will strive to maintain the same level of quality and service as in the past and hope to exceed your expectations. We hope you will return to the Grapevine and welcome any suggestions to improve your stay with us.
