My husband and I stayed for 6 nights and 7 days at this fabulous inn. This was our first stay at a B&B and I do believe we are now ruined for all others. The Inn was immaculate and so cozy with little touches of...More

Pella's town square is clean, pleasant, alive and comfortable. Zero litter. It has a regimen that keeps "us" healthy, safe and family-oriented. Briefly, the town square regimen is: open 10AM-5PM M-S; mostly closed Sunday. We look for town squares to enjoy - sadly most are...More

We booked three of the four rooms for a family reunion. Perfect place to come considering we were coming from Florida, Minnesota and Nebraska. The rooms were ever so comfortable and clean. The Dutch food made by Kim every morning was to die for. I...More

The Cheesemaker's Inn is a restored turn-of-the century farmhouse located 5 minutes from downtown Pella and 5 minutes from Lake Red Rock. Located directly on the biking/walking trail that joins Pella More and the lake, you can also bike or walk to these locations. There are four second-floor guest suites at the recently renovated inn, each with a private bath and modern comforts. The rooms are uniquely decorated with themes that range from rich and elegant to cottage-chic. Two of the rooms have private sun porches and all 4 have queen-sized beds fitted with luxurious linens. Each suite has individual temperature controls, free 5G WiFi, cable and internet access on smart flat-screen TVs. The complimentary breakfast includes garden and dairy-fresh ingredients when possible and homemade Dutch pastries or specialities from Pella meat markets. The Inn is the birthplace of Frisian Farms Cheese Company, a working family dairy farm now located 8 miles east of town. The Inn coordinates tours to Frisian Farms and always includes samples of Frisian Farms' artisanal Gouda cheese in its menus. We recommend combining a farm tour with the nearby Tassle Ridge winery a short distance away. Our mission at The Cheesemaker's Inn is to encourage you to slow down and savor local foods in the relaxed farmhouse atmosphere of our family home. It is the personal details at the Inn that make staying with us a special experience. Less
