We decided to do a mini "staycation" for our anniversary, making the short drive from Des Moines to stay a night at The Cheesemaker's Inn. We are so glad we did! Rob and Kim are the consummate hosts, thinking of all the details that made even our short stay great. Our room was spotless and comfortable, and we LOVED the... More

The room was very nice and relaxing with great amenities. We ate pizza on the front porch and watched the bicyclist go buy. Breakfast was absolutley fabulous and the hosts were personable and informative. This was a great location and we rode our bikes on the Lake Red Rock Trail and to Pella for shopping.

First, the place is immaculate. Well landscaped grounds, beautiful rooms and the nicest innkeepers you could ask for! The breakfasts were regional AND unbelievable tasty. We took home a few of the recipes and they are now staples in our home meals. We will be back !

Our group of six from three different states had the pleasure of staying at The Cheesemaker’s Inn during the Tulip Festival May 2015. The Cheesemaker’s Inn worked out so well for us and provided such a nice setting for visiting. Rob and Kim make it their priority to see that their guests are very comfortable. They also gladly provide helpful... More

Fantastic stay. Kim made an excellent breakfast of dutch pancakes, yogurt with homemade granola, fruit, bacon, and cheese samples from the family's cheese farm. The inn was a perfect mix of original yet modern. We enjoyed strolling the streets of Pella and touring the family's cheese farm. One of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed at in Iowa!

I decided to surprise my mom with a mother - daughter trip during Tulip time and Mother's day! Upon our arrival, Kim greeted us with a nice warm personality and gave us the history and tour of the Cheesemaker Inn. The beds were comfortable, rooms very clean/quiet and the breakfast was to die for! Fresh baked rolls and breads from... More

This place was great! Stayed one night while we were in town to see tulips. This is conveniently located - about 5 minutes from downtown. Kim and Rob will direct you anywhere! They made us feel right at home in their home - which they absolutely love. Pretty grounds, great rooms, and delicious breakfast made with LOVE.

Kim makes the best breakfast! It alone is worth the price. The dutch pancakes were my favorite, but everything was excellent. Rob was a great host and gave us a tour of their family's cheese farm, along with providing great recommendations around Pella. The rooms were very nice and quiet. We will be back. :)

This was our second stay. We were here just three months ago and fell in love with the inn and surrounding area. (We wrote a review for our May visit, if you want to read more about the inn itself.) This time we stayed in the Paris Room. Its bed is super comfortable, great shower/bath, and nice views. My wife’s... More

My husband and I were planning to golf in a tournament on the weekend of his birthday. I thought, even though we lived within an hour of Pella, IA, why not make it a getaway with him for the night. I didn't want to stay in a traditional hotel, but looked for a B&B. Found the Cheesemaker's Inn .... set... More
