Die Heimat Country Inn was just wonderful starting from the check-in to check-out. We arrived earlier than anticipated and were friendly greeted and able to check right into our rooms. The breakfast was a nice selection of items but Janice - the server - was a wonderful lady and gave us a real insight to the Amana Colonies. She was... More

We had the pleasure of staying here this week so I could check off Iowa in the states I have visited. Some friends had said to visit the Amana Colonies and so we did. We love Die Heimat! It is quiet, well restored and seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Joy and Ron were really sweet hosts and we were... More

This is a lovely place to stay while in the Amana Colonies. We stayed two nights in June as a girls weekend getaway. The staff (owners) were so helpful and friendly. The room was well appointed and very clean and the breakfast was homemade and delicious. I believe it was a full house that weekend, but we were never bothered... More

The bed and breakfast was great. The historical building had all the modern conveniences but it didn't seem to take away from the atmosphere. The hosts were great. When the breakfast pizza was not something my sister could eat, the cook fixed her scrambled eggs.

First time at a Bed & Breakfast and it was fantastic. We spent one night there as our trip was traveling around Iowa. I would have been more then happy to stay for the weekend. Loved everything about the accommodations and really enjoyed all the stories and information we were given during breakfast. Would definately go back and stay at... More

We had a fabulous weekend at Amana Colonies and especially Die Heimet! The Colonies were beautiful, and the B&B was extremely relaxing and beautiful. Janice was amazing as a hostess. We will definitely be back. If you are looking for a getaway, I would for sure recommend Amana Colonies & Die Heimet bed and breakfast!

We had a great time at the Amana Colonies and Die Heimat B&B (The Home) was a very pleasant surprise. The owners were very friendly and accommodating; it was a spur-of-the-moment trip for us and they made it very easy. I didn't know what to expect when I signed up and thought it might be oil lamps and no talking... More

Wonderful building and Host & Hostess. Beautiful rooms, creative, clean, comfortable, and historical. Host and hostess were caring, helpful and full of information about the Amana Colony. Food was great. Had a wonderful time and would suggest it to anyone. Come ready to relax and be refreshed.

I purchased a Living Social coupon for Die Heimat Country Inn. We enjoyed the history and also the location for touring the Amana Colonies ( about 3-4 miles from the shoppes and restaurants). We had a quaint room w private bath and wonderful breakfasts both days. The only complaint we had was that there was an odor in the room... More
