Working as a web designer in Hermann MO, I love having repeat business. Especially with the managers of the Cat Nap Inn. They contacted me a while back and said that preparations were beginning to go underway to get ready for a new Hermann MO lodging location right next door to the Cat Nap Inn.
I’ve seen what they were able to do with the Cat Nap Inn so I knew they would be ready to take on this challenge and I was excited to see what they came up with and I wasn’t disappointed.
Anchors Away is the next venture and working on their website was an adventure in itself. Instead of wanting to have two different sites for each inn, they decided that they should split the front page and then have a specific page for each site. The pages themselves were fairly easy. The tricky part was using WordPress and the Genesis Framework to create more than one menu designs as well as different sidebars for the different inn pages. All in all it was an educational experience and one that I definitely learned from. It’s true what they say, “If you don’t learn something new everyday then you’re probably dead.” I, for one, am still alive and kicking!
Some of the pictures of the Anchors Away are breathtaking. The design that Tom and Kathy Durham have put into the new location are stunning but you can’t expect anything less when they take on a project. One of the best features of the whole house is the front yard. With a name like Anchors Away, you should expect a nautical theme and that’s exactly what you’d find. They beautifully landscaped an old row boat in the front yard with decorative rock and fauna. Definitely something you want to see when in Hermann MO.
The landscaping around the house is still being worked on because of the cold weather and spring being late to the game. If you are visiting Hermann Missouri, I highly suggest that you take a night or two and enjoy Anchors Away. It is close enough to the downtown area that you can easily walk, but also far enough away that you don’t get much traffic going by. It is a beautiful location and a comfortable inside.
