Welcome to Our Blog

Thank you for checking out our blog at Zuber’s Homestead Hotel! As owners we have the daily pleasure of visiting with our guests. Often we are sitting in our Wagon Wheel Room and have our conversation over a cup of coffee (or tea)!

Our blog will be a reflection of those conversations. We often share stories about Zuber’s Homestead Hotel and the history of this wonderful place! We also share information about events and happenings in the Amana Colonies.

We invite you to enjoy these stories by reading our blog. Feel free to ask us questions and we’ll do our best to give you an answer. So sit down, grab your cup of coffee (or tea) relax, and share in our stories.

We look forward to the day that you’ll come and experience Zuber’s Homestead Hotel, and the Amana Colonies for yourself!
