About Sherri & Paul Johnson

We enjoy meeting visitors to Lincoln. Since we live nearby, we are glad to welcome visitors to our guest house. We can answer questions & provide suggestions to our guests. All you need to do is ask!!

Sherri & Paul Johnson purchased this house in 2009

Why Sherri & Paul Johnson chose Nebraska

We have enjoyed living in the East Campus Neighborhood for over 19 years. We are proud of the neighborhood and actively work to preserve the area’s quiet, friendly & quality environment.

Over the years we watched the house that would eventually become the Johnson Guest House deteriorate. When it became available, we saw the hidden possibilities and took the initiative to restore the house from an eyesore to a neighborhood treasure.

What makes this house unique

Lincoln is known as a city with a friendly small-town feel. Home to Nebraska’s State government, internationally recognized universities, top-ranked college sports teams and a vibrant business community, Lincoln is clean, safe & welcoming to visitors.

We hope that you will find our Guest House, neighborhood and city welcoming to you.

EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for the USA Rollersports Nationals and all I can say is WOW!! First of all, my thanks to the owner for her patience in helping us find the house when our GPS took us awry; she even offered to personally come find us. My daughter and I were met at the home by the homeowner and her wonderful smile and she gave us the tour of the home, explaining where everything was, how to reach her in case we needed anything, etc. along with some wonderful homemade cookies. This home was beautiful, immaculately clean, well-supplied, and most important a comfortable place we enjoyed coming "home" to each evening. The website for this home doesn't even come close to doing it justice. This home is centrally located to the practice rinks, downtown, restaurants, grocery stores, the University of Nebraska, the Dairy Mart (which we happened upon twice and is a must for visitors), and so much more. It is also on a main bus route for travelers without a vehicle. We have been coming to Lincoln every other year for the roller skating nationals and have always stayed at an extended stay hotel; however, why spend $1,800 for a small two-bedroom hotel room, when you can stay in a wonderful home like this for less? Although this was the last year at the Pershing, we are hoping now, more that ever, that the Nationals continue to be bi-annually in Lincoln just so we can enjoy this home again and again. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful guesthouse with us; we couldn't have been happier and you made this house feel like our home while we were there. Many thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you Brenda. It was so nice to get to know you during you stay. Our goal is always to provide a clean, comfortable environment in which you can truly relax and feel like you are at "home." Hopefully, next time our schedule will allow us to watch your daughter skate. Look forward to seeing you again in 2016.

Best hosts ever

  • 5 out of 5
The friendly, accommodating hosts will do everything to make your stay exceed your expectations. One example, we stay in Lincoln to watch our granddaughter play softball they saved all the newspaper articles for us. Then even took the time to mail to us the ones published after we returned home.
The house is convenient to all University facilities and for quilters out there it is walking to the quilt museum. Two restaurants with in walking distance are Valentino's (pizza/Italian) and the Dairy Store (deli/ice cream).
The house is well furnished, the kitchen is fully furnished with everything you could possibly need (even Tupperware!). It was a home-away-from-home for me. I loved having so many charming bedrooms to choose from! This would be a nice house for both smaller and larger groups because there are multiple places for people to mingle or to sneak away for a little time alone.
We are looking forward to staying again and again and again.

My husband, son and I stayed at this charming house in Lincoln for a college graduation and it was perfect. The hosts were very helpful and the house was restored with love. Well stocked and very comfortable.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 out of 5
The home is comfortable and inviting. Close to downtown and shopping. The owners thought of everything we could possibly need with staying in their guest house. The kitchen was as complete as my own at home. The beds are comfortable and the entire house is clean. Will certainly stay again next time I am in Lincoln.

Very comfortable house

  • 5 out of 5
We were between residences and this was the perfect place to use as our home base. All the amenities of home were provided and Sherri was just steps away if we needed anything. We loved being part of the East Campus neighborhood- especially the Dairy Store. This is a great house for a short or long stay.
