We have just totally renovated the 2 bedroom house with new stainless steel appliances, full bathroom, a full bed, dresser, and flat screen TV in one bedroom and a queen bed, dresser, and a flat screen TV in the second bedroom. Both bedrooms also have cedar closets. The living room has a small pub table for dining and a futon couch for extra sleeping space.

On 2 or more nights or with usage of more than one bedroom. Cleaning fee is $50 and up to $75 on stays of 5 days or more. There is a 42' flat screen TV with dvd player and free Wi-Fi. The kitchen has all the utensils and cooking supplies you would need to enjoy your stay. There is a basement, with a 3rd queen bed, you can do your laundry and hide out in case of good ol' Nebraska thunderstorms. You can protect your car in the attached garage. There is an new infrared two burner grill in the garage you can roll out in case your in the mood for a burger or a steak! We supply towels, washcloths, iron and ironing board, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave. If you need something call and I see what I can do! You're located only a block away from the Legion Hall which will soon be replaced by the multi-million dollar Community Center with indoor wellness center and exercise equipment, daycare, and large multi-purpose hall for large events. Pender is a booming little town with an RV park at Blue Ox Manufacturing, city pool, the new Pender Community Hospital, local Chevrolet dealer Janke Auto, Pender Implement, a modern ball field, and PoPo's restaurant for daily family dining.

About Jim Rutar / manager

My parents purchased the house as a rental and after several long term tenants it needed some major updating so after remodeling the entire house the decision was made to try putting it in the nightly rental program since the local motel has closed. The income from the property all goes to my mom who is in the center of the picture with all my siblings. She is on a fixed income so your patronage is highly appreciated!

Jim Rutar / manager purchased this cottage in 2002

What makes this cottage unique

Vs. a Motel you have a full kitchen, three beds, all the comforts of home for the price of a motel room. If you like you can cook or grill your own meal. There is a garage for security of your car and so you don't have to scrape ice in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome, small town USA place to stay if visiting local, or traveling through. I used to travel often in my job, and I would put this stay right up with any major city I've stayed in.
