About Stephen

You may have guessed the picture isn't of me. It is the age our twins were when we purchased this vacation home. They were doing their part to get things ready. Now we have a family of 6 so lots to do in our household. We do live in the area and have a maintenance supervisor should you need to get a hold of myself or need other assistance.

Stephen purchased this house in 2007

Why Stephen chose Nebraska

We love lake activities and full service lakes close to Omaha just don't exist. So when we found this property at a reasonable value on a full service lake we had to snatch it up.

What makes this house unique

We hope that you are able to enjoy all the benefits of a lake property while still being so close to downtown Omaha, the world's best zoo, CenturyLink Center, TD Ameritrade ballpark, the airport and so much more. It is truly a little piece of paradise.

Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The views over looking the lake were breathtaking, the open floor plan was wonderful with my family of 8. We enjoyed yourselves, making breakfast and dinner, Memories we will enjoy for many years. If i find myself in the area I hope the rental is available.

PERFECT FOR OUR LARGE FAMILY GATHERING!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO, and it was a great one that we hope to repeat in the future. We had a fantastic weekend together with our children and grandchildren at this home away from home! Although the house is rated for 8, we did just fine with our 17 (9 adults, 8 children). We appreciated Stephen allowing our larger group, adjusted arrival/departure times, and cheerfully answering all our questions. The location is perfect for visiting the zoo and downtown locations without spending too much time on the road.

The house offers plenty of space/comfortable seating upstairs and down for everyone to gather and also to have separate space now and then. The basement bathroom is on the small side, but it does the job. The kitchen is very large and adequately equipped, bedrooms are comfortable, and there were plenty of sofas/floor space for air mattresses for sleeping our extra people. Everyone enjoyed the lake view from the house and deck, walks on the bike path, and relaxation in a quiet location.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 of us women who do a girls week every year. This house was beautiful and very clean. With the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the large family room there was plenty of room for all of us. The deck overlooks a beautiful walk way system and the lake view was beautiful. There are plenty of kitchen appliances and bedding. The beds were very comfortable. This house is located by Omaha's many attractions. We went to the Zoo and Downtown

Old Market, and shopping malls. Just the perfect spot for big city attractions and still be able to enjoy a lake setting. Stephen was very easy to work with and was very informative about any questions we had. We will be back again and recommend this property to our friends.
