Homestead Iowa Bed & Breakfast
Offered for sale at $950,000
Die Heimat Country Inn is located in the charming village of Homestead, one of the seven scenic and historic villages of the Amana Colonies. The Amana Colonies are an important tourist destination and National Historic Landmark. Homestead is a thriving community as well as a bustling tourist destination. Die Heimat means “Homeplace” in German, and the Inn offers a strong sense of welcome and warmth. The Inn was once a stagecoach stop and a communal kitchen for the Amana Colonies. Today the Inn includes 15 spacious guest rooms and ample owners’ quarters - a perfect blend of history and modern comfort.
The large breakfast room is a great gathering spot for guest meals or events. Guests enjoy shopping for crafts or gift items in the Inn’s gift shop. Guest rooms range from cozy and comfortable to roomy and traditional in this multi-story Inn.
The owners’ quarters are on the lower level of the Inn and include a private entrance, separate kitchen, living room, bedroom and bath, plus work and storage areas. The efficient Inn kitchen adjoins the breakfast room and could be expanded.
The Amana Colonies are comprised of seven historic villages on 26,000 acres and became a National Historic Landmark in 1965. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come (annually) for festivals, museums, restaurants, wineries, breweries, crafts and outdoor recreation. Heritage tourism drives the local economy and is heavily promoted by the Amana Society.
Homestead is only a 20-minute drive from both Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, in East Central Iowa. The Iowa River runs through this area of wide-open spaces, outdoor activities, and vibrant neighboring farms. New owners will enjoy the benefits of country living with all the amenities of city life close at hand.
