This week I want to share a few pictures of the blooming bushes and tree on the ‘front’ or north side of Zuber’s. Individually they are pretty, but WHAT a view when all are blooming at once! Behind all of these blooming beauties, our “Buckeye or Chestnut Tree” had just finished blooming. I so enjoyed […]

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my summer “To Do” list, and how I am working to check things off. Well, Diane finished the touch up painting, I finished the drapes for The Red Carpet room, and I can now check off a new hosta garden! The only thing left will be to […]

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 […]

As you may or may not know, we also own Lace Lodging in the Amana Colonies. Staying at Lace Lodging is a more independent stay. You have a 4 room suite as opposed to at Zuber’s you have your bedroom and our Wagon Wheel Room to relax in. I enjoy the opportunities each place provides […]

Well a positive side to the COVID virus is that we have LOTS of time to get jobs done around the hotel! I always have a “To Do” list, and this year, we may get through everything on my list! A big project was making new drapes for The Red Carpet Room. It has been […]

They have a posting on their website with current hours/service. The Ronneburg Restaurant has reduced hours now and is only offering carry […]

Just as we are all thinking about spring and looking forward to summer just around the corner, we have to adjust our plans. Due to the COVID-19 virus restrictions the following upcoming events in the Amana Colonies have been rescheduled. Luckily, none of the upcoming events (that I am aware of) have been canceled, just […]

Tea set with purple flowers

Tea and Tales is an event at Zuber’s which evolved from a conversation my daughter and I had several years ago. We have enjoyed taking advantage of every opportunity we have had to “take tea” at a tea house, tea room, or tea event in the area. I took Jaclyn to her first tea at […]

Something that I enjoy sharing at Zuber’s, is an event called “Tea and Tales”. My daughter and I have always enjoyed finding tea rooms or tea shops to have an afternoon tea.  When we purchased Zuber’s, Jaclyn “suggested” to me that the Wagon Wheel Room would be a perfect place to host an afternoon tea.  […]

Something I’ve always thought about doing, is writing a children’s book.  I love children’s literature and am drawn to that section of any book store!  I look at a book and think “How could I use that book in class?”  A relatively new type of not only children’s book but also book for adults is […]

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!
