Bill Zuber is probably most known for his success in baseball and with Zuber’s Restaurant. We are fortunate that people often give us items that are connected to one of these two ‘successes’ in Bill’s life. Zuber’s restaurant had a baseball theme to it which was apparent from the moment you looked at a menu. […]

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.  […]

It is amazing how much of our life is guided by a calendar!  Days we work, days off, birthdays, anniversaries, appointments, vacations, holidays, etc!  As part of a tourism community, we have all of these personal dates to keep track of, in addition to keeping track of how busy we are with guests and also […]

Do you know what “Schnitzelbank” is?  For one thing, it is the theme for this year’s Oktoberfest parade: “A Tribute to Schnitzelbank”.  Still no clue? Come to see the parade to enjoy the fun! Schnitzelbank is a singing game.  There is a poster and a pointer to be used by the person directing the game.  […]

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!
