During your getaway with us, you’ll enjoy the historic charm of our home, which was built in 1895.

Getaways in Our Historic Home
Our home has been in our family since 1895 and has always been used a multi-generational dwelling. Louie (one of the owners) has lived in the house since 1973, as well as visiting his father and step-mother in the summers for several years prior, when they lived in the house. Jan (Louie’s wife) joined the ‘family’ and moved into the house in 1983. Our boys were raised in Amana.
Today, we live upstairs in the house and the bed and breakfast is located on the main level of our home. There are two separate units which contain four bedrooms available for our guests. In each unit, you’ll find a spacious common area with a living room, a kitchen, a dining area and a laundry room. In each unit, you’ll find two bedrooms, each equipped with a private bathroom, comfortable queen bed, sofa, dresser and a flat-screen TV. You can rent one bedroom and share the common area or if traveling with others, rent both bedrooms and have your own ‘private’ apartment.
One of the home’s units, which first opened in June 2012, is located in the historic portion of the home. The other unit, which opened in August 2013, sits in a newly built addition. Both units offer private entrances for our guests.
