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 Iowa

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.

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

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

Perfect for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house has big spacious rooms so was perfect for our family vacation. Unfortunately the weather was terrible so we could not really enjoy the deck or the lake. It was very easy to get to the Old Market, children's museum, zoo and airport.

Great view and accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

GPS was not correct in it's location but it gets you close. Turn on Q Ave then left on Carter lake Rd #99 - 129. The neighborhood looked iffy, but we didn't have problems and in fact neighbors waved to us. The house was perfect for us but we can all navigate stairs. We LOVED the layout of the open kitchen family room. The kitchen had everything we needed in it and we loved the tea kettle and coffee makers. There were plenty of beds for all of us. Some of the beds are extra firm and we prefer softer mattresses. One bed is exceptionally tall and required a step stool to get into it. One was super soft and now he is on the search for the same mattress. Awesome walk in closet with lots of extra bedding and towels. The upstairs bathroom was nice sized and the lower level one is tiny but works fine. The bathtub in upper level is a bigger tub and we would have loved to take a bath but time got away from us, that also is more of a challenge to get out of without handles. We really enjoyed breakfast on the deck and sitting on benches by the lake. Lots of entertainment on the lake with rowing teams and fishermen. Temperature was great not to hot or cold. I liked the darker lower level but not everyone did, fortunately the upper level made up for it. Very roomy we would love to have family holiday here. We would definitely stay again!

Great location. Great house.

Easy drive to Old Market and Zoo. Separate living spaces in case you don't want to be together all the time. Loved being right on the lake! We'll be back!
