#1 of 5 B&Bs / Inns in Pella
The Cheesemaker's Inn is a restored turn-of-the century farmhouse located 5 minutes from downtown Pella and 5 minutes from Lake Red Rock. Located directly on the biking/walking trail that joins Pella and the lake, you can also bike or walk to these locations. There are four second-floor guest suites at the recently renovated inn, each with a private bath and modern comforts. The rooms are uniquely decorated with themes that range from rich and elegant to cottage-chic. Two of the rooms have private sun porches and all 4 have queen-sized beds fitted with luxurious linens. Each suite has individual temperature controls, free 5G WiFi, cable and internet access on smart flat-screen TVs. The complimentary breakfast includes garden and dairy-fresh ingredients when possible and homemade Dutch pastries or specialities from Pella meat markets. The Inn is the birthplace of Frisian Farms Cheese Company, a working family dairy farm now located 8 miles east of town. The Inn coordinates tours to Frisian Farms and always includes samples of Frisian Farms' artisanal Gouda cheese in its menus. We recommend combining a farm tour with the nearby Tassle Ridge winery a short distance away. Our mission at The Cheesemaker's Inn is to encourage you to slow down and savor local foods in the relaxed farmhouse atmosphere of our family home. It is the personal details at the Inn that make staying with us a special experience.

We recently spent several nights at The Cheesemaker's Inn and loved it! The entire experience was delightful. The Inn is lovely, including the spacious, clean rooms with luxury linens. The breakfasts were amazing! I can't say enough about how delicious they were, from Dutch pancakes & bacon to sausage pie & French toast, it is the best! They have a perfect area filled with teas, coffee, water and sodas you can help yourself to any time. The hosts, Rob & Kim are fantastic people and make your stay very special. We can't imagine staying anywhere else now. It is in a very convenient spot very close to downtown Pella. Stay here, you will love it!

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights and 7 days at this fabulous inn. This was our first stay at a B&B and I do believe we are now ruined for all others. The Inn was immaculate and so cozy with little touches of home throughout. Our room was just perfect. We stayed in "Jill's" room and loved the decor. The large window seat looking out over the side of the property was perfect for a reader like me. The tile bath was luxurious. And the Breakfasts!! Wow. From the home cooked egg perfections, to the samples of cheese, to the garden fresh vegetables - everything was perfect and simply delicious, especially since my husband requires certain dietary restrictions. The hospitality was outstanding. Rob and Kim were accommodating in every way. We look forward to our next visit.

My wife and I stayed at the Cheesemakers Inn for 2 nights, and we absolutely loved it! We've stayed at a few other bed and breakfasts in the area, and this one has by far been our favorite! We stayed in Anne's room with the Jacuzzi tub, and it was very comfortable and relaxing. Rob and Kim were super hospitable and made us feel right at home. The breakfast was delicious! Great food with great service. The reading area has some extremely comfy chairs, and we really enjoyed being able to get coffe, tea, or pop whenever we wanted. It was also very fun to walk around the Pella downtown area to see all the shops and buy some tasty dutch pastries. We highly recommend the Cheesemakers!
