We stayed at the Die Heimat Country Inn for our family reunion weekend. Our room was so nice, slept so well. In the hallway I could hear a baby cry but not in our room! The breakfast was amazing. Marc & June are such gracious hosts and very informative about the Inn and the Amana area. There is hiking and shopping in the area so we could all find something to do.

Best sleep we’ve had in a long time. Our room(#8) was clean and well-appointed. Mini fridge, good A/C and a private bath (which was a bit tight for a tall person with a slanted ceiling). Delicious breakfast served from 8-9: fruit, baked eggs, and sweet breads. They welcomed our dietary request (veg). Owners are a lovely couple who are warm and welcoming. Quiet area - nice for a stroll or five-minute drive to Amana.

We were very happy with our room and the whole experience! What a great place to stay! The rooms are clean and inviting, the food was phenomenal, and the hospitality was stellar. Using the event center right next door for the 57 of us was perfect. Thank you!!!

I can’t say enough good things about our experience at Die Heimat. Family members reserved every room and then we held our family reunion at the Next Door Event Center during Wurst Fest weekend. June and Marc were very hospitable and accommodated our every need. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. Our elderly mother used the outdoor elevator rather than steps to enter the inn. Breakfasts were delicious. We sat under the canopy of trees on the side patio to drink our morning coffee and sat on a double swing as well as at a patio table. In the evenings we played lawn games provided at the inn and sat around the large fire pit area in the spacious green space behind the event center. Our family had a blast and made wonderful memories. Thanks again, June and Marc!

You are so welcome! Your family was a very sweet group and so much fun to host. I'm glad it worked out so well for everyone. Even though we won't have access to the event center next door, there is a meeting space/kitchen just down the street that will work for groups your size if you choose to come back again. All the best and thanks so much for choosing to stay with us.

We spent two nights at this lovely bed and breakfast. I definitely would recommend a third night if your travels allow. We booked the day before our stay. June was so sweet and surprised us with a room upgrade upon our arrival. The room was so comfortable and inviting. It was hard to leave. The breakfasts were excellent. They were so well thought out and fulfilling. We had a nice opportunity at breakfast to speak with our hosts and talk to other guests. It was such a nice and welcoming experience all around. There was a cute little gift shop on site, the grounds were well kept, and they thought of everything as far as amenities are concerned. What a great place!

Die Heimat Country Inn is a wonderful place to make memories. It starts with the personal e-mails you receive about the area after you book. The location is just a few minutes away from the Amana Colonies Nature Trail that leads to a bluff overlooking the Iowa River. Marc and June have thought of everything, glasses of cold, filtered water in a central refrigerator, ice machine, snacks including ice cream bars, an outside lift for easy accessibility, wonderful breakfasts, Oriole bird watching from the dining room windows. We happened to be there on Amana Colonies’ favorite pie plant day, and June provided fresh slices of rhubarb pie. We were there for a wedding and several places had been recommended to us. We are so pleased we chose Die Heimat Country Inn.

Beautiful historic inn with comfortable, spacious rooms and excellent breakfast! First time to the Amana Colonies. Hosts were informative and super nice. One of the decorations in our room was the German prayer my grandmother used to say before meals!

The rooms are spotless including the bathrooms. The breakfasts are the best I’ve ever had at any inn. And the hosts are wonderful friendly people! Of course the area is beautiful around the Amana Colonies. Very peaceful. It made me a fan of going off-season!

This was my second time staying at the B&B and it was just as lovely as the first. The rooms are spacious, charming and comfortable. They are equipped with a bathroom, fridge, and microwave just like you would find in a hotel. What makes this stay extra special, is the warm welcome from its owners and the delicious breakfast. It feels like your home away from home. I’m looking forward to returning next year and enjoying one of the many local festivals.
