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 […]

This week I want to update you on temporary changes that I’m aware of in the colonies. The Ox Yoke Inn posts that they are doing carry out meals only until April 1st. 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.  […]

Like it or not, the seasons are changing!  There definitely is a difference in the weather.  We went from hot and humid, to chilly, and this week two very humid days leading up to lower temperatures and rain soon to come.  Is this our “Indian Summer”? In the colonies, fall means Oktoberfest (among other things).  […]

Pack your bags and head down the road to the Amana Colonies! Don’t know what to see or do?  We would be happy to help you plan your visit to the colonies! In our “Things To Do” drop down, we have included several links that list upcoming events and special activities which can help you […]

When you come to stay at Zuber’s, you can expect that there will be a sweet treat out from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., and that there will be a buffet style breakfast in the morning from 8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. Sometimes you’d like to have just a little more ‘something’.  We have several […]

7th Night Free

This year we have been offering a rewards/”Thank You” type of program for guests who stay with us multiple times during the year!  We know we have some regular guests who stay several nights during the year, and we are pleased to be having more and more guests who choose to come to the Amana […]

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!
