Our Vacation Rental Home


Named for Herman Brendel, the man who built it in the early 1960's for his bride, Bernadette Koester, we have transformed this home into a place for guests to stay for a night, a weekend, a business trip, or an entire vacation. This quaint ranch-style home is perfectly situated in the heart of Osage County. Just 1/2 mile north of beautiful and historic Westphalia, MO, on Highway 63, the home is  less than a few miles from several beautiful wedding venues (Kempker's Back 40, St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Westphalia Lions Den and Knights of Columbus Hall), and will accommodate your family in comfortable surroundings.

 
In the area for business? Quaker Windows, Diamond Dog Food and Elsevier are all nearby - and our home is much nicer than a hotel.


Or -- do you like animals? The home is located on the property of Westphalia Trading Company's Petting Zoo. Even though the Zoo isn't open year round, special arrangements can be made any time to spend time with our animals.

There is also an Eagle Stop with Godfather's Pizza; and Westphalia Pizza is located on Main Street. If you'd like something delicious and don't like to cook, give Desserts by Dianne a call before your stay at 573-619-2467 to check on availability.
