History of the Inn

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 1800s. It's Gary's and Kandi's desire that this family-owned motel holds the same personal customer service and hospitality as his parents, grandparents, and great grandparents.

"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!!"
