Zubers is a great place to stay. We've been there 4 times and absolutely love the place. The rooms are so quaint and comfortable. The owners Bonnie and Brian are great people and very fun to sit and visit with. The staff are also great. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and having a... More

We have stayed at Zuber's three times and will definitely keep staying there whenever we visit the Amana area. Love the way the rooms are decorated. They are also comfortable, quiet, and spotless. Free Wi-Fi throughout. Their breakfast was absolutely delicious all four mornings that we were there. What a great way to start the day. The owners, Brian and... More

Zubers is such a magical place! Every room is so beautifully decorated! Bryan and Bonnie couldn't be more accommodating. They go out of their way to make our stay extra special. The breakfast is amazing, all done from scratch. The family room is such a nice place for our group to gather and relax. I can't say enough good things... More

Traveling with a bus group, we enjoyed meeting Iowa’s friendly people everywhere we went – until we arrived at Zuber’s. It was the low point of our week. I overheard our group leader call Zuber’s owner (Brian) 2 days before our arrival and ask for luggage assistance when we arrived. She explained we are an older group (age 80-92) and... More

My sister and I stayed here one night after flying into the local airport after a very long flight. It was our third time to stay at Zuber's. The folks at the front desk were cheerful and saw us to our room right away. The room wasn't bad, but maybe my cleanliness standards are a bit high because I thought... More

This is the fifth year we have gone for our annual trip to Amana and have stayed at Zubers. It will be the last time we stay at Zubers. Breakfast is getting less impressive every year. Usually Bed and Breakfasts have a breakfast to impress. I was not impressed by a lack luster egg McMuffins which were prepared two at... More

We appreciate any comments or concerns from our guests. Breakfast menus vary depending upon which staff member is cooking. On this particular weekend the cook misjudged the prep time necessary for the main dish. The cook was trying to vary the breakfast from casserole dishes to a more individualized special breakfast. This individualized type of breakfast will be better used... More

What a gem in the Amana Colonies. Wouldn't stay anywhere else! As a seasoned world traveller this was one for the books. Authentic hospitality, genuine feeling of coming home and very cozy. After a long day of traveling settling into that bed that envelopes you is very restful.. The Red Carpet room has a fabulous spa bath which is in... More

Wanted to stay somewhere different during my work travels as anyone can stay in a regular old hotel room. I'm glad I did. Room was very spacious and quant.

Best Bed and Breakfast to date. We will be back in the summer, maybe for a reunion. This was an amazing adventure. Although the weather was less than cooperative, the owner's went out of their way to make it a great stay. We were able to take a peek into all the rooms over the two days we stayed. Beautiful...

This is a hidden gem! It has the most spacious, fun rooms for a very reasonable cost. The staff is very kind and everything is well maintained. They do a great job of keeping everything running smoothly and the breakfast was very good. I will definitely go back.
