About the property

We were the VERY FIRST VRBO listing, and started it all! This spacious and beautiful fully furnished Lake home borders the shores of Lake McConaughy. WOW, what a view of the entire lake from the deck! It is close to nature’s best wildlife preserves, such as Clear Creek State Wildlife Management Area and Crescent Lake National Wildlife Refuge. It is also close to historical Ash Hollow State Park and Oregon Trail. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, enclosed patio, deck, spacious grounds and fish/game cleaning hut. This is an exceptional destination home! WHAT A VIEW IT HAS!

This gorgeous Lake Home features vaulted ceilings and windows throughout to create an open and spacious feel. It is beautifully furnished with quality art and furniture. It is heated/air conditioned! There is a washer and dryer, dishwasher, gas grill, picnic table and many more amenities, including Cable TV. The home is immaculate, private and tastefully decorated with a wildlife and seaside theme. It comfortably sleeps 10, but NO more. This property is designed and geared for sports groups, including hunters and fishermen, and families, who love the outdoors activities of the area, including boating, fishing, golfing, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing and hunting. It is also a perfect sanctuary, retreat or laboratory for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers. Great for wildlife photography and bird watching! Located near the West end in the Marina Landing subdivision, this home overlooks the entire lake, and has beach and boat launch access 100 yards down a small beach access road, depending on lake levels!

It is authentic America at its best, right in the middle of the Great Midwest! America the way it used to be a half a century ago. A cosmic relief from today’s society. An incredible retreat to rejuvenate and refresh! An easy 3.5/4 hour drive from Denver, flat and safe highways with lots of rest areas! Check out the rest stop in Sterling, fantastic! No traffic congested I-70! DID I MENTION THE VIEW IT HAS?!!

About Anthony

Hello, my family has been coming up to Lake McConaughy for 48 years! We love it and want to share it with other sports enthusiasts, hunters and fishermen and women, and nature lovers. It is truly an authentic American experience - the beautiful and friendly Midwest at it's best. We enjoy going to Nebraska for the hospitality and friendly people. There's no place like it to find peace and to commune with nature! Lake McConaughy is one of America's greatest secrets! We love it year round, and appreciate the quiet family time it gives us; there is something different to experience in each and every season of the year.

Anthony purchased this house in 1987

Why Anthony chose Nebraska

This beautiful home is on the highest point of Marina Landing and was custom built in 1987, after patronizing the Lake at other places the prior 20 years. We love Lake McConaughy for it's unique body of water which enables any number of water sports, and for it's hunting location, especially in the fall. We also chose the area for it's rural beauty, and because it's the perfect retreat to remind you of the inner peace offered by the beauty of nature. WHAT A VIEW IT HAS!

What makes this house unique

You will love the comfortable home with beautiful furnishing, and everything you need to complete your experience. It offers beautiful views, artwork and custom features. Star gazing at night is the best, no city lights to compete with! We have so many happy family memories there. Beach access is 150 yards down a small access road, we are away from congestion, noise and crowds. There is a huge driveway for your cars and boat. The property has a built in Fish and Game Cleaning house for easy and insect free cleaning! It's the perfect destination for family and group fun! If you seek comfort and privacy, this is the property for you!

Incredible and spotless property with a nice view

  • 5 of 5

Super nice home in a great location. It was so nice to get away for the weekend and still have the comforts of home. Not only is this place spotless, but the little things like a comfy bed and a good hot shower are too notch as well. I would recommend to anyone wanting a great place to spend time with family! Working with Anthony, to get things arranged, was also a pleasure. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of.

This place needs some work. It was however clean and comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

The screened it porch would have been great except we couldn't see out the windows or open them so it was hot. We had what we needed but the dishwasher didn't clean the dishes so we had to hand wash. It could just use some updates.

This was a great place for our fishing trip to Big Mac. Accommodations were excellent.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at your property. The accommodations were perfect for our group. Fishing was excellent at the lake. We really enjoyed having the cleaning station on the property as well. Look forward to booking again in the future.

Excellent home for a get away

  • 5 of 5

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Thank you for sharing your home with our family over the Memorial Day weekend. Our entire family loves to hunt and fish. There was plenty of room for 8 adults and 2 children. Plenty of room for some to watch TV, others to play games and cards and still quiet areas for the readers. Kitchen is well organized and easy to prepare meals. Weather wasn't the best but the die hard fishermen/women of our family still went out and caught some great white bass. Thank you again! The property would make a great get away for just about any one.

Lake house visit

  • 4 of 5

House had everything needed for weekend away. Clean and well laid out. Kitchen is complete, loved being able to just bring food & not worry about pans, etc. Short walk to beaches. Bedrooms were comfortable. Good tasting tap water! Only issue is the windows. Understand they are old & fragile, but the sun porch ones also don't open and some are cloudy, obstructing the view to the lake. Unfortunate, since this is a great room to gather in. Had a great visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. The windows in the sunroom take a tremendous abuse from the weather. Sitting up on the hilltop like we do, we are regularly exposed to 70 to 80 mile an hour winds, with temperature fluctuations from 25 below 0 to 106 above zero. I realize they are less than ideal, and replacing them is the number one priority on my list.! In the meantime, the rest of the home absolutely makes up for any inconvenience of the sun room, especially the outside deck with this magnificent view!

Owner's Response: Thank you. I strive to have a home where my guests can relax, enjoy their time, and just love the location and views! The house has its eccentricities, but is such a wonderful place to build memories and use as a base to enjoy Western Nebraska and the LAKE!
