About

Die HeimatDie Heimat Country Inn B&B is located in the little village of Homestead, one of the original seven villages of the Amana Colonies.

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!

Current Innkeepers Marc and June Hershberger purchased Die Heimat Country Inn B&B in July 2014.

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).
