When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly smile and great person. All the rooms are different and done up in a tasteful decor. It is a older home and wow. All of us in our group were impressed. The Breakfast the next morning was excellent. They will accommodate you in any way they can. We were there with...

I was here in early August but couldn't stay for breakfast. I was here a week ago for two nights and was able to eat the first morning. The room was quiet and comfortable, the breakfast was very, very good. Caught the open mic next door on Friday night and grabbed a comfortable chair in the back and listened to...

Thank you so much for this nice review. I'm so glad you chose to come back again and that you got to have breakfast this time! You lucked out being here on an Open Mic night that we only have about every 3 weeks. We keep chugging along with the updating and upgrading around here - this 1850s building really...

We were in Amana Colonies for a 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration. Rooms were on reserve for us. This is a wonderful place to stay.

I thought this B&B was average. Based on the reviews I thought it would be better. The decor was Victorian. I thought everything looked a little tired. There aren't a lot of choices in the Amana area so it was ok. I guess I just expected more if it had that many excellent reviews. The price point was above average....

DieHeimat, Owner at Die Heimat Country Inn, responded to this review

Well, of course, this isn't the kind of review we like to read, but we thank you for your feedback. Everyone has different expectations. This is not a fancy Victorian B&B, rather a homey Amana 1850's inn that is decorated with Amana furniture, Grandma's quilts, photographs of the Amana communal era, and where we hope guests feel comfortable and rejuvenated...

The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, the Inn was clean. But most outstanding, the Innkeepers were so gracious, helpful, and polite. Wonderful place. Definitely worth a stay as you visit The Amana Colonies in Southeast Iowa.

A very nice place to stay in the Amana Colonies. This was our second visit to Die Heimat, but first under the new owners, who were very nice. We only spent one night, but hope to return and stay longer. The room we had was newly renovated and was extremely comfortable, a king size bed, fire place, super quiet air...

I haven't stayed anywhere else in Amana but I don't think we'll even be gambling - this is it for us. Clean and inviting and a bathroom in EVERY room, unlike a lot of B&B. There is also a window A/C in each room which allowed the Mrs. to get the temp down to the cold she likes. Breakfast was...
