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! Current Innkeepers, Marc and June Hershberger, purchased Die Heimat Country Inn B&B in July 2014. Die Heimat is a perfect blend of history and modern comforts. Its decor is in keeping with Amana traditions, such as many "Amana-blue" walls and Amana-made furniture. Ours is a simple wooden structure, with 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).
