Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Crofton - Elkhorn Ridge

Cozy with 22 foot cathedral ceiling with lake view.

Lewis and Clark traveled by this property in 1804. Later on steamboat paddle wheel boats tied up in Yankton and required fuel, thus old oak trees have regrown on the land with multiple trunks. The sturdy, well built abode is very cozy with an expansive lake view, a buffalo grass area for children to romp, and trails into the surrounding woods enhance the setting. Wildlife is present but not pesky, flagstone patio with a nice fire pit. The access road is graveled. If you want a peaceful accomadation with recreation the location is a winner. Lake access for a boat, canoes is three miles away, and Yankton and Crofton are ten miles distant.

About Bill or Kaye Petta

We are retired now and enjoy meeting the folks who rent the lake house. We like to share with others the beauty of the area.

Bill or Kaye Petta purchased this house in 2003

Why Bill or Kaye Petta chose Nebraska

The property was built by our family. Our children are grown up, now grandchildren play in the woods and walk along the beach experiencing the adventure.

What makes this house unique

Nice quiet refreshing area. We actually like the area in the colder months enjoying the large wood burning fireplace and solitude. The house is available year round for occupancy.

Family fun paradise

  • 5 of 5

We love this cabin!! This is the second year we have rented it for our family, and we would love to come every year. The comfortable house, the lake view, the fire pit, the nearby marina, and the great memories we've made here make it a very special place!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It has great outdoor space and a Fantastic view. The house itself is beautiful and could easily accommodate a large family. And even though it sits high above the lake, it is a quick 5 minute drive to marina. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Wonderful home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home over the July 4th weekend. The gathering areas inside the home and outside were perfect for our family.

We utilized the kitchen a great deal, and the bedrooms, loft, and basement provided great sleeping arrangements. The owner, Bill, was excellent to work with. Activities we did in the area included a float trip on the Niobrara River, boating on Lewis and Clark lake, a visit to The House of Mary Shrine, and golfing at Lakeview Golf Course. While at the house, we used the firepit, played yard games, took walks, and enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake while relaxing. We would definitely recommend this home to others. Enjoy!

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this lovely, comfortable home nestled in the treetops overlooking the lake. Everything that we needed was available. The beds were so comfortable with fabulous linens. The house was so clean and well maintained. We loved walking through the neighborhood and viewing the sunsets. We were able to rent a dock at Weigand Marina, and went boating each day. We can't wait to plan another getaway!
