Original Stake Hotel Founded by Harry and Florence Stake in the late 1800's, was located on the Northwest corner of the Williamsburg, Iowa Town Square. Four generations later, the Crest Country Inn follows the same warm hospitality handed down from their ancestors.

Things to Do

Take a trip back in time to nearby Kalona, Iowa to an Amish/Mennonite Community for fabulous meals and a day's outing in the country to enjoy bakery goods, antiques, Amish quilts and tours.
Built by his parents, the current owners Gary Stake and his wife Kandi, strive to make your stay a memorable one. Gary is a fourth generation hotelier on both sides of his family with a history of Iowa County hoteliers since the late 1800's. It's Gary's and Kandi's desire that this family owned motel pass down the same personal customer service and hospitality his parents, grandparents and great grandparents are renowned for. "Our goal is to make a difference with every guest, every time," says Gary. "And it is to that end, we and our staff strive. You don't have to stay with us, even though so many of our guests return time and time again. We realize you have many choices for where to stay. It is our honor to serve you. Try us! You'll be glad you did!!" 

The Crest Country Inn is a 'home away from home,' yet close to area attractions like restaurants, Williamsberg Outlet Center and three Iowa AAA Gem attractions: The Amanas Colonies, Kalona, and Pella, Iowa.
