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 to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the lake house-spacious and comfortable. It was close to the downtown area and the activities we had planned. Great view of the lake. We also used the walking and bike path. The owner was very helpful and responded in a timely manner.

Relaxing spot

  • 4 of 5

Spent the weekend here and had a nice stay. Very comfortable and clean inside, however the deck table and chairs were pretty dirty. Met our group's needs overall much more than a motel would have. The owner was very responsive to our questions and we had no problems with the process.

Nice!

  • 5 of 5

We were not sure what we were getting into being so close to the city and the airport - once we got to the house and in the home, we were pleasantly surprised! The lake view was great! We were totally able to relax and enjoy our time! Pretty sure that we will be back in the future! Thanks!

p.s. Google maps was just slightly off the last blocks but the streets signs helped us get to the right place.

Great location, perfect house for a get together

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a combination birthday/graduation party. The kitchen and upstairs living room were PERFECT for entertaining. We had lawn games and people brought their kayaks. The lake was clean and quiet and easy to get in and out with our kayaks. The deck and the stairs could use some repair. The house was clean and tidy, we did have to sweep the deck and wash the outside table. Added bonus was being able to watch the baby birds in the nest on the deck take their first flight out of the nest. The lazy squirrel who has a big best in the tree overlooking the deck was entertaining as well. Thank you Stephen for sharing your home with us and making our event so much fun.

Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This large, open style house offered plenty of room for our group of 8. We enjoyed taking walks by the lake and in the quiet neighborhood.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Stephen's lake house in Carter Lake is a great location with beautiful views of the lake and its wildlife. The house is spacious and the kitchen is very big. One downside is that bedding and towels are old and worn and the towels in the upstairs bathroom looked they were cleaning rags with frayed edges and even a hole in one of them! Other than that, the property was clean and comfortable.

I used the HomeAway App to locate a grocery store nearby and it directed us to a location that was not in a good area so I would suggest not following the app for local grocery stores!
