With accommodations for up to 12 adults, The Laughing Boar Guest House is perfect for groups wishing to stay together in a private setting.

mascotBuilt in 1872, the Laughing Board Guest House is nestled in the heart of Hermann’s downtown historic district and proudly maintains the high standards of our first property, The Weber-Schulte Guest House, which opened in April 2009.

Completely remodeled and decorated, the Laughing Boar offers guests a clean, fresh mix of the new and the old. Following in the Weber-Schulte tradition, furnishings are a mix of new modern to funky old repurposed artifacts.

We provide all the amenities you will need for your stay and offer your party complete privacy, inside and out. The comfortable deck overlooking a small pond is a nice quiet place to plan your day over morning coffee or sip a beverage at day’s end.

The Laughing Boar is within walking distance of the Amtrak station, Riverfront Park, Hermannhof Winery, Mill Brewery, restaurants, bars and night life. For longer jaunts, you may enjoy the convenience of the Hermann Trolley, which provides shuttle service to area wineries and attractions, eliminating the need for a designated driver. Doorstep pick-up and drop-off are available
