This was a mid-drive break along I-80, and was nice to find Rawson's BnB. Very large comfortable room, good bed, great breakfast. I think the water pressure was low but that was minor point. The Hostess was very welcoming and helpful with suggestions before and during stay. Would stay there again. Thanks!

We stayed overnight on a weeknight in the off-season, and were the only guests. Rawson's is located on the main street (also the only street) in Homestead, a few miles from Amana. It is in one of the original communal kitchen/dining buildings of the colony, but inside the historic brick structure it is modernized and very comfortable. We were in...

We stayed her for my daughters wedding. We pretty much took over the whole place. It was perfect for the bride and her girls to get ready...hair, make up, before photos...it was perfect. The food was awesome and they were very accommodating! Would stay here again!

We took a weekend trip to the Amana Colonies. This bed & breakfast was wonderful. We only stayed one night but were welcomed when we showed up, and was given good history at breakfast. Lisa was super knowledgeable about the area and was able to answer all questions we had. This B&B does have a pool that looked really well-taken...

We returned to the Amana Villages to have a better look at the area. We stopped in the villages last month on the way home from vacation but only had a couple of hours. The highlight of the weekend was our stay at the Rawson B&B. We appreciated the historic significance of the building, a former Amana Collective kitchen. The...

Very nice B&B. Cozy, quiet, close to Amana, friendly and helpful hostess (Lisa), and a REALLY nice breakfast. If you expect "shiny and new" hotel accommodations, then a B&B isn't for you. For a charming B&B experience, stay here.

First time at a bed and breakfast and it was AMAZING! Lisa is a wonderful cook and prepared two great breakfasts during our stay! It was nice to come back after walking around Amana all day and just relax outside on the porch, next to the pool or by the gas fire pit. We enjoyed a few lawn games as...

Rawson's Bed and Breakfast Inn was our introduction to Bed and Breakfasts and we can't speak highly enough about our time there. Lisa was warm and welcoming beyond expectation. The room was clean, cozy, and quiet. Breakfast was homemade and excellent!! I highly recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate to book it again.

Lisa made me feel at home. She pampered us with awesome food and drink. She helped guide us to great places in the Amanas I will refer all of my family & friends to this lovely get away! The blueberry frenchtoast casserole and hot cup of coffee started the day just right. The comfortable room was quiet and relaxing.

A mother and three of her sons met at Rowson's Bed & Breakfast Inn and had the most wonderful time. Everything you could ask for in a quiet setting with a historical building. The rooms were very roomy and the beds were comfortable. Some of the rooms had hot tubs which were used and enjoyed. We gathered in the evening...
