Nestled along the banks of the Iowa River, just off Interstate 80 and close to Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, you’ll find a rare peace and tranquility in a former utopian German community. Welcome to Die Heimat Country Inn, offering couples and groups a chance to rekindle love and friendship and to “come back home”.
Die Heimat Country Inn B&B is located in the picturesque little village of Homestead, one of the seven villages of the Amana Colonies.
Ours is a rich history; legend has it that Die Heimat was a stagecoach stop in the 1850s. Die Heimat also operated as an Amana communal kitchen. In 1960, Die Heimat was renovated to accommodate the travelers who have found a warm welcome for nearly sixty years!
Die Heimat is a perfect blend of history and modern comforts. Its decor is in keeping with Amana traditions, such as “Amana-blue” walls and Amana-made furniture. Ours is a simple wooden structure, with the charm and quirks of an 1850’s building. We provide guests with enhanced amenities and an experience of “Gemutlichkeit” (friendly and welcoming).
