About the property

The Decor Recreates The Owner's Pisces Penchant For Sun, Surf, And Sand.

The tranquil Caribbean design coexists with the peacefulness of the prairie in this 1,700 sq. foot walkout basement NW of Kearney near Cottonmill Lake. Spacious living room and bedrooms with a large, partially enclosed patio open into the backyard for play space by day and star gazing on clear nights. Paved road access to the north end shopping center and UNK campus -- 12 minutes each direction.

Why Anita Lorentzen chose Nebraska

Twelve years ago, I chose this location to build a home for my children. We had moved to town, and I missed the farms where I had grown up and lived until then. I moved and house from town and added a master suite and walk out basement, carefully choosing the positioning of the house and windows to maximize the open view.

Guests have especially appreciated the cozy and relaxing environment -- indoors and out. The unique beach theme and tastefully done decor give the home a welcoming feel not found elsewhere in the area. The area is secluded with picturesque views of rolling hills, yet access to the business and entertainment venues in town is convenient.

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, quiet, with loads of charm. Kitchen very well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, etc.(unlike most other home shares I have stayed in). Hosts were perfect...friendly, helpful, and genuinely concerned that our stay was enjoyable. Exactly what we were looking for! Would stay here again and highly recommend.

Lovely setting, meadowlarks singing all day!

  • 5 of 5

A smart, competent owner. Excellent privacy despite being in the lower level of her home. Beautiful meadow views. Convenient access to Kearney. Worked extremely well for multi-generational travelers. Strongly recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi, Stuart, Ann, and family. Thank you for being lovely, accommodating guests. It was a pleasure to chat with you, and thanks for the Paul Gruchow recommendation. I have The Necessity of Empty Places on my next Amazon order list and will add to the rental book collection -- after I read it :-)

We held a bridal shower at this property. Everyone raved about this property. It had plenty of seating, and everything we needed. The view is beautiful! We will be back! I highly recommend this property! It was amazing!
