Gorgeous & Spacious Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

A crew of former college friends all converged on Nebraska for a wedding and it was so wonderful to all share a house together. This home is a beautiful converted barn house, spacious and clean and bright, tucked into the bluffs just outside Omaha. There is a lovely trail to a small creek, plenty of space for bocce and lawn games, and a fire pit made for memories (though it was so windy this weekend we didn't get to partake). Leo was fantastic and quick to respond to questions. We had a great time!

We had an amazing time at this property. We actually were in Omaha for the Olympic Trials. We had a lot of down time between prelims and finals, therefore we came back to the house and enjoyed games outside as a family together. Plus when we would get back from finals we were all excited. Most nights we played cards at the large dinning table, until late into the night. Leo welcomed us upon arrival and showed us around and said if we needed anything to call. Everything was perfect throughout our stay, therefore there was not need to contact Leo.

Perfect location to watch CWS

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience using Homeaway.com. Went to Omaha for the College World Series and other ballgames...this house was awesome! A little secluded, but that was ok with us. We had three separate families and there was room for everyone. House was extremely well stocked with all necessities. We would definately booked this location again.
