After a pleasant drive through the beautiful rural scenery of eastern Perry County, Missouri we hope you feel as welcome and comfortable as if you just arrived at your grandparents’ home in the country. Eggers and Company is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and has been lovingly restored by Ellen and Steve Frye. Ellen’s grandfather, Martin “Tom” Eggers and his brother Walt were the store owners from 1920 through 1966. Many original artifacts remain in tribute to the Eggers family, the town of Farrar and rural America in those decades.

Choose to stay in one of three bedrooms: Walt’s room, the Girls’ room, or the Drummer room. To relax, you have your pick of enjoying the hot tub in the summer kitchen, playing cards or dominoes in the game room, or reading in the parlor. Breakfast is served in the dining room, but you also have access to a kitchenette, in case you need to store something in a fridge or have a quick snack. You can read more about each room on the Tour page.

Breakfasts served today are very similar to what Ellen’s grandmother Ella would have cooked for you herself. Servings are generous and reflect the German heritage. Kuchen, gritzewurst and kock kase would have been staples at breakfast along with coffee, eggs and home baked bread. “Gritzewurst,” or oatmeal sausage is still served today, made by locally owned M & M Meats. “Kock Kase” means “cooked cheese,” and is a creamy spread for home baked bread, though apple butter and jams were always on Ella’s table as well. “Kuchen” is the German coffee cake that is still makes an appearance at every local church function. The yeasted dough is rolled out onto large flat pans and topped with seasonal fruit, crumbs, or peanut butter frosting, then sliced into narrow strips — perfect for dunking in your coffee.
