I have only stayed at a bed & breakfast a couple of times previously but this one is tops! You really felt like you were at home. From the moment we checked in, June made us feel so very welcome. The breakfast was amazing and the cook was super helpful and sweet. This is definitely a must stay. My only...

My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful surroundings (both indoors and outside). The atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing -- a real get-away from our everyday life. Hosts (and guests) were friendly and welcoming. The breakfast selections were delicious and plentiful. We look forward to our next stay at Die Heimat Country Inn!

For a four-night, three-day visit to the Amana Colonies, DH is a perfect location and place to stay. The owners are so gracious. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and varied...never repeated but always delectable and filling. DH is on the only street in Homestead. The (freight) trains come by a few times a...

As first time B & B visitors, we were a bit hesitant on how they work and how comfortable we would be. What an amazing experience!

Could only stay one night, but were made to feel right at home. Outside appearance was a little daunting, but fits the age and history of the place. The inside is very pleasant and super clean. Room #8 was cozy and comfortable. If you're over 5'10" you'll have to stoop to avoid the slanted ceiling in the bathroom on this...

Staying at this bed and breakfast was such a great experience and I am so glad I decided to stick around the area that night. The owners were so kind and welcoming! They had a microwave and refrigerator I could put my food in that was in the hallway, but not in the room. The place was very clean and...

I stayed at the Die Heimat Country Inn with several of my family members this last weekend and was very pleasantly surprised. It was clean, quiet, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds and most outstanding to me was the wonderful breakfast. I love homemade food and that is what we had in huge quantities. Several of my grandsons were with us and...

June and Marc have done it again! I recently conducted a Getting the Love You Want workshop for couples at their space called, "Next Door."

The owners were phenomenal and gave us an excellent place to stay for the weekend... wished we could have stayed for longer! It's the perfect distance away from everything while still being so close to plenty of fun activities. The room was spotless and June and Marc took great pride in their place!

June and Marc are among the most personable B&B hosts we've ever enjoyed. Know a lot about the area--culture as well as things to do--and are fascinatingly educational as well as practically informative. We probably spent an hour the last day just exploring what it was like to have a business in the Amana Colonies, and how aspects of its...
