About Us

Our Owners

The Bontragers are singers and country farmers. Marlin and Becky Bontrager have raised their family in the rural Kalona area, and the kids all love the rolling hills, big cornfields, and small-town feel of the Kalona countryside.

Our Name

The owners, Marlin and Becky Bontrager, both come from Amish families, and they want to preserve their heritage by passing on to their children the legacy of faith, family, community, and hard work. When the Bontrager family purchased the local hotel, they decided to name it "Dutch Country Inn". The inn is located in the heart of "Amish Country", and when you drive the country roads you can see Amish horse-drawn buggies, families at work on their farms, animals and crops, and steel-wheeled tractors.

Our Purpose

Our purpose at the Dutch Country Inn is to glorify God and benefit the lives of those we serve. We strive to create an atmosphere of rest and refreshment for all who enter our doors. We want your time in the beautiful Kalona countryside to be the experience of a lifetime. Please don't hesitate to tell us how we can serve you during your stay.

Excited to serve you
