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 Omaha

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.

Great space for family to gather!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this lake house for 3 of our families to come together (8 people total) for Labor Day weekend and the space was perfect. Although the house is a little older, overall it is well- maintained and it has great space for everyone to be together. The upstairs has a beautiful view of the lake and the kitchen-dining-family area works really well for everyone to spend time together. We had ample room for dinners, games and movies and also enjoyed lots of time on the deck. While you can swim in the lake, it is mostly used for boating and jet skis. Downtown Omaha and the airport are both close by and easily accessible. Overall, a place I would recommend for a small group looking for a weekend escape.

Nice home with plenty of room!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time here very much. Our family spent four days here relaxing during the day and then going into Omaha each day for dinner. There is plenty of room to spread out, the neighborhood is very quiet, and the deck was lovely for morning coffee. I will say, the beds are very, very firm. It was very uncomfortable for me personally, though others managed better than I did. I don't think that's a negative necessarily, just depends on the person. Over all a very nice place to stay--would happily stay again if we ever come that way!

Such potential....

  • 3 of 5

Let me start by saying, the owner was helpful with booking questions and was quick to respond. The view and proximity to the lake was awesome. Address is a little off being that it is in a unique neighborhood (google maps directions took you to a street over). We just google mapped the neighbors address and had no issues. Complaints: The railing on the deck stairs is UN-USABLE. It has rotted through and is a current safety concern. We were there in 85 degree weather and the house got up to 78 degrees in the evenings, only cooling down over night and that was keeping units at settings noted by owner. The AC dripped in the upstairs hall and required a bucket. The bathroom upstairs was missing light fixture coverings and the fiberglass tub was broken in several places and both bathrooms had mold in tubs/showers. Ceiling downstairs looked like water issues (probably AC unit) Pros: Kitchen worked great. Sheets were clean. Two living areas was nice to have. Location was great.

Side note: I didn’t contact owner regarding AC drip. We were booked with events and didn’t have the time to deal with it. Just located a bucket to catch drip and moved on.

I wish the owners would invest in some repairs to this house. Its simple things that could be fixed. It’s like they have forgotten about the upkeep on this location. It has such potential!

Peaceful setting for a family, minutes from downtown Omaha

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family of four, visiting Omaha for a wedding. It was wonderful to be a few miles from downtown, yet staying in a lakefront house. On Saturday, we had coffee on the deck, watching some boaters, then drove five minutes to the Old Town Omaha Farmer's Market. Stephen responded quickly to my initial inquiry, and allowed us to check in early, as the house was ready. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils. There are plenty of linens, and it was nice to have a washer and drier. The house is clean. There are some funky things about the house - the queen sized bed is strangely high, as in you literally have to climb into it. The second bathroom and shower are extremely small - things like that. However, for the price, an excellent place to stay.

Large living areas. I would describe the bedrooms as two private bedrooms and one large bunk room.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our April 2017 stay to celebrate my husbands 75th birthday with family from near and far. House was great setup for large gathering. The lawn down to the lake was perfect for the P.... Family Olympics and for the Easter egg hunt. It was fun to see the rowers practicing and watch all the wildlife We would rent again
