Last operated as a bed and breakfast called, Birk’s Gasthaus. The Herzog Mansion was built in 1886 by Michael Poeshel. He also owned the Stone Hill Winery. The mansion is located on .47 acres in Hermann, Missouri. Mr. Herzog eventually bought the mansion from Mr. Poeshel and raised his family in the mansion. In the 1970’s it was purchased by the Birk family. After their children grew up and moved out, they turned it into apartments and later into the bed and breakfast. It could use some updating and some undoing of past renovations. In the past they have also held murder mystery weekends. Ten bedrooms, ten bathrooms, and 6,292 square feet. $395,000
