Owner4s were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very clean plus the breakfast was delicious., This facility is only 3 miles from the Amana settlements which has good shopping and restaurants.

Our bluegrass band had a reunion of members and former members at the event center next door to Die Heimat Country Inn and many of those coming in from far away stayed at the B&B.

This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast and I have to say I'm "sold" on them. Only 2 miles south of Amana. Marc and June are so nice. They really care about their guest.

We stayed in Die Heimat because all of the hotels in Iowa City were booked up, due to a game weekend. I was really grateful to find a place so good for the football weekend.
