Birk's Gasthaus, now named Herzog Mansion, is cavernous. With high ceilings and lots of nooks and crannies, guests feel like they've walked into another decade. We stayed in this old mansion as a quick weekend get-away. We had a lovely stay, but as I said in the title, there's room for improvement. It is old and its age shows beyond... More

My wife and I stayed one night at this B&B. Nice owner and a good breakfast. The rooms are well appointed, but the house is in need of repair. Pretty much everywhere you look there is a reminder of why it is expensive to own a building like this 1896 mansion. For the price, I think we could have had... More

My partner and I stayed one night at Birk's Gasthouse (now Herzog Mansion). The house itself is aging a bit ungracefully - it looks like there are some sort of renovations or repairs being done to one side of the property's exterior, but neglect and decay are apparent throughout the interior of the house. Having stayed in several aging homes... More

Beautiful home with charming rooms. The game room was fun. Breakfast was great. The pastry was delicious! Richard was a wonderful host and we had a great chat over breakfast. We only had one night to get away, but we could have stayed longer in this wonderful B&B!
