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.

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! We were in town for a wedding over the Thanksgiving weekend. The big kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes and utensils, which allowed us to host Thanksgiving for some of our family. The view of the lake cannot be beat! There are two large areas where family can gather and watch tv. The internet and cable worked great. The only thing I would change is the mattresses, which were very hard. Overall, we had a great stay and were very happy with the house.

Impressed

  • 4 of 5

Very large, nice house that is quite comfortable and welcoming. It’s kind of squeezed in between other lake homes, but once inside, we didn’t even notice them. Lots of windows with lovely views, comfortable furniture, nice feel. Many surprising kitchen furnishings were provided - including decent cooking utensils, good-quality kitchen towels, paper towels and boxes of facial tissues - even a boom box. We also appreciated homey touches like books and games on the shelves.

Our party was made up of four upper-middle-aged adults. The stairs were a bit steep, and rail-less, but the posts supporting the horizontal top rail were solid, and everyone navigated the stairs fine. The downstairs bathroom is a little distant from that bedroom in the middle of the night, and there’s a unique platform entrance to the downstairs bedroom requiring extra care in the dark, but we navigated those okay as well. The neighborhood has excellent sidewalks that we took advantage of and enjoyed, in between doing some touristy things in Omaha – overall we had a very good time.

Staying a few days in a nice house by a lake does great things for the soul. Thank you, Stephen, for making this house available to vacation-renters. Next time we’re in Omaha, we want to stay in it again!

Lovely Stay

  • 4 of 5

Six of us ladies, all over 50, stayed in the home. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay! The house is very comfortable and was supplied with everything needed. The beds were comfortable too. The following are minor suggestions and problems, but would certainly not prevent us from a return visit. We had a hard time locating more toilet paper, dishtowels and dish rag. There was no dishwashing soap for wine glasses which we didn't want to put through the dishwasher but had to then. The sink strainer was broken also and couldn't be used. We were surprised also that there were no mattress pads to protect the mattresses. Again, none of this would stop us from coming back and we are planning to do so again next year. Very close to the Old Market area which we thoroughly enjoyed and the lake was a nice setting to spend the weekend!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house itself was perfect! There were a bunch of guys in town to play in a soccer tournament, myself included, and we stayed here. It fit us with no problem and was comfortable and close to downtown. We were all very impressed with the house overall. Bathrooms are a little small, but we managed just fine. We would definitely stay again if we ever visit the area in the future.

Relaxing Lakehouse Stay

  • 4 of 5

This home is convenient to the airport and downtown and is located in the quiet little town of Carter Lake. It's a little tired but clean and had everything we needed to have a great weekend visiting our Creighton student. Especially nice to open an empty fridge, no leftover condiments to shuffle around! We would definitely consider staying here again in lieu of a hotel.

Would recommend for an extended family

  • 4 of 5

The lay out of the house was very open and furniture comfortable. Everything was clean. Nice laundry room to use. Kitchen met the needs of our 7 people well, and could have easily accommodated another 3-5. Easy access to zoo (about 10-15 min drive) and other activities.

4 Stars due to access road is an alley, so a bit concerning at first, but all turned out to be fine. Also, beds were very, very firm, though some slept on these fine. Ice machine in frig didn't work and no ice trays available. Though it may have just been a new development. Overall, we enjoyed the house and would recommend for a big group.
