We are conveniently located off main street Amana in the heart of town at 621 45th Ave and nested in the center of the block behind the Amana General Store and The Little Red Wagon. When driving down main street Amana, take a left at the Amana General Store onto 45th Avenue. Take an immediate left off 45th behind the Amana General Store (between the general store and Lace Lodging). You'll see our sign and take a right down our driveway. There is parking next to the house and behind the main house. Enter through the front door to check-in. We live upstairs so if we don't hear you come in, ring the bell and we'll be right there to help you. Welcome to Amana!

Our room put clean to shame. Everything was new. Looks like it was remodeled last year. Remodeling is currently taking place on nine new rooms, but don't worry about it, you are not aware of it unless you ask about it.
Food was excellent and the convenience of walking to everything in the main amana was a real bonus. Being located in the middle of a block rather then on a street makes finding it the first time a bit strange, but not being on a "busy" street, (if amana has one) makes it all the quieter and walking more convenient.
Louis' stories of the history of the amana's are informative and entertaining. Jan's down to earth helpfulness is always available when needed, but never interfering.
Service was outstanding, I am just sorry we couldn't stay longer. The blend of the historical exterior (1895) with the convenience of a modern interior is perfect.
