If you are looking for an authentic experience of the warm hospitality and simplicity of the Amana Inspirationists, Die Heimat is the place 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 15 unique and beautiful guest rooms offer a range of accommodations and rates. Every room has a private bath, flat-screen cable TV, and free high-speed Wi-Fi. Several rooms have accommodations for folks with accessibility issues and the building can be entered by a lift to avoid steps.
Die Heimat Country Inn is a charming and historic building which has been operating as a place of lodging continuously for nearly 60 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.
Die Heimat is a perfect blend of history and modern comforts. Its decor is in keeping with Amana traditions, such as “Amana-blue” walls, Amana-made furniture, quilts, antiques and artwork. Ours is a simple wooden structure, with the charm and quirks of an 1850’s building. Marc and June, owners since 2014, have updated and renovated to provide guests with enhanced modern amenities along with an experience of “Gemutlichkeit” (friendly and welcoming).A delicious full breakfast is included with your stay. 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 also have the old Homestead General Store located right beside us. It is now “Next Door: Die Heimat Event Center”. Our 15 room inn with an event center conveniently located next door make us an ideal location for family reunions, retreats, classes, weddings, or other events and celebrations.
