We are almost to the end of May, school will really be out after this Friday! 🙂
We were so happy to have the hotel half full on both Friday and Saturday nights this past weekend! People are ready to get out and enjoy the season and we are ready for guests!!!
We are doing our best to follow current best practices – we have a COVID 19 policy in place. Just a few high points: We clean and sanitize the rooms after guests have left, there are no bedspreads or decorative pillows in the rooms to help keep surface space minimal. The beds all have 2 blankets on them. We are monitoring how many people are in the Wagon Wheel Room during breakfast. Guests are welcome to eat outside or take breakfast back to your room. We are serving a plated breakfast rather than the usual buffet style. We sanitize door knobs and table tops several times a day. Wearing a mask in the hotel is your choice at this time. If you choose not to wear a mask, we trust that you’ll respect recommended social distancing. We can do this!!
I have been working outside to decorate our entrance and parking area. The hosta garden I put in last year is beautiful with many shades of green! I am working on adding another large hosta garden and plants around the large bush in our north yard. Brian will not have any grass to mow in this area from now on! I’ve attached pictures of the front of the building, some of our lilacs in bloom, and the beautiful greens of the hosta garden. I also love to garden at home, so there are 2 pictures of the garden in front of our house. We have to have a deer fence so they don’t eat my plants! These plantings are 2 years old. If you look closely, you’ll see I have some flowers planted in a teapot! I added some ‘unusual’ planters this year!
The Amana restaurants are open as are many of the stores. It has also been great weather to sit outside and visit or take a walk on the nature trails!
We hope to see you soon!
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!
