Your Home Away From Home
Welcome to Die Heimat (German for “homeplace”) Country Inn where you will experience “Gemutlichkeit”; warmth, friendliness, and a down-home welcome.
Die Heimat Country Inn is located in the picturesque little village of Homestead; one of the seven villages of the Amana Colonies, Iowa.
We are a smoke-free, pet-free environment and we do not allow emotional support animals.

We had a family gathering here in September and had 5 rooms and they were all great! Food was very good and the owners very accommodating and friendly. Going back next year. Would highly recommend them!
The hosts are absolutely the best you will find anywhere. The breakfast are something to look forward to. It is also away from all the hustle and bustle, but close enough to historic items to go see and do. I highly recommend this as a must stop and stay.
Great hosts and room was impeccably clean! I would definitely stay here again if visiting the area.

I’m going to miss this place. Whenever you want a quiet get away to the Amana Colonies, I highly recommend this bed and breakfast hotel. My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Our room is very clean, the staff is very nice, the fresh homemade breakfast is amazing and it’s very quiet. It’s worth the trip. The gift shop is very nice too.
We had a wonderful stay at this great BnB! June and Marc are great hosts and truly helped us to have a restful and interesting stay. The breakfast was scrumptious — and June’s talk while we ate made the Amana Colonies come to life. It is clear that these two work very hard to make everything right for their guests. I definitely recommend this as a lovely place to stay in the colonies!
This place is just like going home to grandma’s house! Marc and June really make you comfortable and are so very helpful. We were lost out in the country and Marc stayed on the phone until we could see their home. We can’t say enough about the two of them. They treat you like family and we can’t wait to return. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and you don’t leave hungry. If you need a place to relax and get away from life this is it!!!!!
My daughters graduation party was held at the event center “next door”. It was beautiful, clean, air conditioned yet so warm and welcoming . Absolutely loved it! PERFECT place to have an event! Such kind owners, even had a congrats sign out front, such a nice touch! Thank You for keeping the history of the center and for making it a place that many can still enjoy to this day. I give 5 stars but deserving of ten!
