“Great B&B in Amana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

My wife and I were looking for a weekend vacation close to home so we decided to get a Bed & Breakfast in Amana. What a great weekend. Prairie Rose is extremely convenient to the bulk of the shops. Easy walking distance to Restaurants, Antique shops, Wineries, etc. Marye was a great host and cook. After I made the reservation (about 2 weeks before we went) I got an email from Marye telling me about an dinner and wine tasting at White Cross Cellars Winery and the Ox Yoke Inn. We decided to go and had a great time and outstanding food. The Breakfasts at Praire Rose were wonderful. The one day we had Amana Bacon (she made so much we couldn't possibly finish it) and it was wonderful. In addition there was fresh strawberries, blackberries and grapes and Pancakes with pear. The second day we had waffles, sausage and fresh Peaches and raspberries. In our room there were some high quality chocolates - Lindt and Godiva which was a nice touch. The food here is definitely high quality and plentiful.

When we got back from Dinner on Friday, she had 2 home made brownies waiting for us (glad we didn't have dessert at the restaurant). They were great and made with real butter. The house is modern in its decor and is spotless. It actually is one of the original communal laundaries so there are some interesting aspects to the architecutre. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious with a small refrigerator and wine glasses. The only minor complaint was that the rooms had a slanted ceiling (due to the roof line) so if you were on the one side of the room and got up quickly (and forgot) you could (and did) hit your head. The common area was very nice and comfortable with 2 couches and plenty of room to relax.

The house has central air (no noisy room air conditioners like in some hotels) and it worked well. The temperature was kept comfortable and we were never hot or cold (like in some hotels). This was no small trick as the temperature out side on Friday was very warm (90+). Pillows and bed was very comfortable.

Marye was a great host and extremely helpful. She new the area and made good recommendations and she truly made you feel like you were at home.

I would highly recommend Prairie Rose to anyone looking for a quality B&B in the Amana area.

Room Tip: Time your visit to coincide with one of the Vintner's Dinners from White Cross Cellars. They are...

This was our first time to ever stay in a B&B, and we picked a fantastic one. Marye, the always smiling owner, keeps the place spotless. The bedrooms are a nice size, and each one has a separate bathroom. This is really nice when you are traveling with another couple. There is also a nice living room, dining room, and full kitchen area. Marye stocks the guest area with great books, games, cd's, and snacks. She also cooks up a great breakfast -- wonderful meats, waffles, french toast, and extremely good coffee. These are not budget foods and coffees. The beds and pillows are quite comfy, and the location to the Amana shops is excellent. We would definately stay here again, and would highly recommend this B&B to other travelers.

We stayed at the Prairie Rose Bed and Breakfast for the second time since moving from Iowa to Michigan because our first experience there was so fine. This time we noticed the additional upgrades to the place and the new plantings around the house and in the gardens. It will be beautiful when all the things are blooming this summer. We enjoy visiting with Marye and of course eating her tasty breakfasts. This new bed and breakfast is an asset to the Amana community. We will return.

Sleeping in the Prairie Rose Bower room with the windows open to hear the night sounds was wonderful! The bed was comfortable too. The bathroom is larger than other B&Bs we have visited and we appreciated the double sinks. Marye served the best waffles I have every had, a bowl of fresh berries and more. Although located in a historic community of older buildings, Prairie Rose is delightfully fresh and updated. It was a pleasure having Marye share her home. This B&B is within a short walk to the antique and other shopping in the Main Amana. Highly recommend. Since she has only two rooms now, better reserve ahead.

Room Tip: Love the bath for the Bower room.
