Die Heimat is a charming old-world style inn with 16 unique rooms -
modern amenities and private baths. The original stagecoach stop of the 1850s; later a communal kitchen in the historic and peaceful Amana Colonies. A homemade hot breakfast is included. We can accommodate groups for reunions, meetings, and celebrations at our inn and Next Door event center. 30 minute drive from Iowa City and the University of Iowa and Kalona, an Amish settlement. Only 20 min. from Cedar Rapids airport.

What a charming place to stay in the famous Amana Colonies. We have been to the Amanas many times, but this is the first time at Die Heimat. The breakfast was outstanding and the room quiet and comfortable. Highly recommend!

Marc and I have lived in many different places, including Nicaragua and Tanzania, East Africa. We love to travel and have been to many countries and 49 of the U.S. states. Our three children are young adults now and we are enjoying hosting guests in our 16-bedroom country inn/B&B. Marc is an engineer and a creative problem solver who is always working on projects to improve our historic building and grounds. I am a teacher and administrator and enjoy cooking breakfasts and baking pastries for our guests. We are available to share information about the Amana Colonies with our guests if they are interested.
