Although situated within the city limits of Waterloo, Colonial Creekside fosters feelings of solitude, peacefulness, and serenity – a sense that you’ve escaped to the countryside. Mature trees, extensive grounds and a spring-fed creek set the scene for an amazing and unrivalled experience.
Colonial Creekside sits on historic land once occupied by local potter Adam Bierenstihl, who worked the rich blue clay from 1853 to 1866, creating “ordinary market” earthenware for local inhabitants as well as specialty pieces for family and friends. Almost a century and a half later the property is now enhanced with a residence that blends seasoned antiquities with modern features, including a strong connection with the design-style of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Grounds & Indoor Pool

Y our escape to nature’s paradise in the city wouldn’t be complete without a leisurely stroll through the extensive grounds bordering the dancing waters of Colonial Creek. The lush stream banks have been beautifully planted in vegetation native to the area and serve to provide desirable habitat for a variety of songbirds.
A leisurely dip in the professionally designed state-of-the-art swimming pool will be the final pièce de résistance! Geothermal heating and cooling is environmentally friendly and ensures your comfort year round.

Luxury Suites

We have 3 sumptuous designer suites to choose from. Two-consecutive-night minimum with $20 off the second night. Additional discounts for referrals as well as multi-night, weekly and monthly stays.

Each suite is exquisitely designed for your absolute comfort and unlike the traditional Bed & Breakfasts of days past, Colonial Creekside Grand Guest House offers many extra ammenities.
