Welcome to Die Heimat Country Inn B & B and Next Door Event Center
Enjoy an authentic experience of warm hospitality
We are located in the little village of Homestead, one of the original seven villages of the Amana Colonies—Homestead offers a village market, the Amana church museum, and close proximity to the Nature Trail for hiking. The Old Creamery Theater and the famous Amana family-style restaurants are within a five minute drive.
Ours is a rich history; legend has it that Die Heimat (The Home Place) was the original stagecoach stop in the 1850s. Die Heimat also operated as an Amana communal kitchen. In 1962 Die Heimat was renovated to accommodate, once again, the travelers who have found a warm welcome for more than fifty years!
Die Heimat is very much in keeping with Amana traditions, such as “Amana-blue” walls, simple wooden structure, and the charm and quirks of an 1850’s building. We are constantly updating and renovating to provide guests with enhanced amenities and an experience of “Gemutlichkeit” (friendly and welcoming)
Groups are welcome. We recently acquired the old Homestead General Store, a historic building right beside Die Heimat. We have named it Next Door: Die Heimat Event Center. With our 16 rooms and Next Door, we are an ideal location for reunions, retreats, meetings or other events. Please call to reserve for your next group event or your weekend getaway for two.
