Peaceful setting with plenty of room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Diana and Kathy offer the perfect retreat! We stayed here for a week before my oldest son's wedding in Ft. Calhoun. With seven groomsmen, and my extended family, I was concerned that we would be on top of one another. This property was PERFECT! Plenty of room, inside and outdoors for everyone to have their own space. In fact, each time we had to go out for wedding activities, we all couldn't wait to return to the property! Well done, ladies. Thank you for this special sanctuary.

Beautiful, spacious, and clean

  • 5 of 5

A group of us came from California to celebrate my 40th birthday. It is very clean, well maintained, and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies. My daughters are allergic to cats and dogs, so I worry if a VRBO will bother them. They had no issues in this very clean home. We had a great time visiting by the fire on the deck, drinking wine and enjoying the beautiful setting. The kids ran around, played games in the yard, and loved walking down to the pond. We woke up early and took walks on the property and down the road. The scenery is amazing; so peaceful. I hope we have an opportunity to come back. I highly recommend this home.

Amazing Place to get out of town!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the weekend with 6 other people and had an absolute blast. Sat on the bank of the pond all day Saturday fishing and using the Kayaks. There are a lot of fish out there just need to make sure you know what you are doing to catch them, they also have a fire pit down by the water that is great. In addition the house is out of control, beautiful deck to sit on, with a small fire pit and hot tub. I would recommend this place to any and everyone and my group will be back soon.

The house was perfect for all of us - plenty of room for all and clean and neat. Kitchen was well supplied and made cooking for our crew very easy!!

Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful time at this property. Unfortunately, it was too hot outside to even consider using the hot tub! We played yard games, fished in the pond, and laughed and talked. The living room is very spacious with numerous bedrooms and baths. Our group of 14 never felt like we were in each other's way. The house was very well maintained and clean. The owner was responsive and friendly. We went to the community pool in Blair, NE which was very nice and refreshing. We would recommend this property.

Beautiful property!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this rental home in early June with a total of four families. It was wonderful!! I had never been to Omaha so had no idea what to expect. When we got off the highway and started driving into the country I was so pleasantly surprised. The landscape was just beautiful! When we pulled of the main road and down our drive we saw rolling hills, a pond and many trees. The house was also perfect for a group our size. We had 7 adults and 6 children and had more than enough room and beds for everyone. We were there a total of six nights and the kids never even turned a TV on. Every night they would go out and look for frogs and catch fireflies. Truly great family time!! My husband and his friend also enjoyed going out on the kayaks at night and fishing in the pond on site. We also enjoyed sitting on the large deck every night grilling our dinner and enjoying the fire pit on the patio. Although it is isolated and you feel like you are miles away from anything there is also a cute little town just a few minutes away that had everything we needed. The restaurant in town was great and we also managed to find a cute little wine tasting room that the girls went and enjoyed one afternoon. All in all I highly recommend this property. If we ever make it back to the Omaha are this is where we will stay!! The owners were also wonderful to work with and were there to answer every question we needed.
