Die Heimat Country Inn – “The Original B&B of the Amana Colonies”

If you are looking for an authentic experience of the warm hospitality and simplicity of the Amana Inspirationists, Die Heimat is the B&B for you! Located in the scenic little village of Homestead, just 3 miles from the Amana village with its shops, museums, and theatres, Die Heimat’s sixteen unique and beautiful guest rooms offer a range of accommodations and rates, from $85 to $130. Every room has a private bath, flat-screen cable TV, and free high-speed Wi-Fi.

Marc and June Hershberger, owners since July 2014, are constantly updating and renovating to provide guests with enhanced amenities and a genuine experience of “Gemutlichkeit” (friendly and welcoming)

Die Heimat Country Inn is a charming and historic building which has been operating as a Bed and Breakfast continuously for more than 50 years. It was the original stagecoach stop and railroad inn of the 1850s. It also served as a communal kitchen in the days of communal Amana.

Rooms are furnished with Amana furniture, quilts, antiques and artwork. A delicious full breakfast is served each morning, including home-baked pastries. At breakfast, be sure to ask your hosts about both Amana history and current life – June and Marc love to share stories of this peaceful and unique set of villages!

Die Heimat Country Inn is featured in “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” and “Stay on Route 6.” We look forward to welcoming you at the Inn!

We recently acquired the old Homestead General Store located right beside us. It is now “Next Door: Die Heimat Event Center”. Our 16 room inn with an event center conveniently located next door make us an ideal location for family reunions, retreats, classes, weddings, or other events.                                   Ask us about hosting your group!
