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 location. Great house.

  • 4 of 5

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!

Carter lake Iowa

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice property that sits on Carter Lake. We spent 6 nights there and the house was actually bigger than we needed. very spacious giving room for us to spend time reading or relaxing without being close by those who were visiting or watching TV. A very nice walking path along the Lake also provided for time with family or alone. We were a little alarmed when we arrived at the street this house sits on as the street is really more like an alley, with garages and trash cans sitting along the narrow road (alley) I was able to see the next day that the main doors are on a common sidewalk that has no traffic. I learned latter that this area was once a gated community hence the nice walk way along the lake and the walkways between homes. The neighborhood is older and some places need a little TLC. Our house was in good shape with up grades being done over the years. Still needs a bit of attention. but over all is a great retreat.

Excellent Home - So Much Room for Activities

  • 5 of 5

Stephen was prompt to respond to all of my questions. His vacation home was in good condition and clean when I arrived. I had to look around a bit, but all the normal amenities were present and accounted for (beach towels, since it's on the lake; extra paper towels and toilet paper; cleaning supplies; cooking utensils; et cetera).

Over the weekend, we hosted a gathering of people, and between the drive way and street parking about two blocks away, the house comfortably held ~20 people. All the windows made for a lot of natural light and cross breeze. There couldn't have been a more comfortable and inviting place to celebrate with my family and friends.

Great lake house to rent if visiting Omaha

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as an alternative to the hotel suites that we usually rent, when I come in to town in the winter to visit with friends and family. The house exceeded my expectations, we plan on staying there again the next time I come to Omaha, if it is still available to rent.

Comfortable and roomy

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and roomy home. The kitchen is well-provisioned and the beds are comfortable. There are plenty of blankets and pillows, etc. The layout provides plenty of space for a group to socialize. The owner was responsive and helpful.
