About The Owner

We have been coming to the lake for 40+ years and finally have a home base that we are excited to share!

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Nebraska

The views are breathtaking. Bought the view and the house came with it. The property is lined with pine trees, the driveway is lined with ash trees and it feels like you are arriving at a very special place!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! Spectacular views from the deck and landscaping all around the house, including grass. Close to Lake McConaughy boat ramps, beaches and Bayside Golf Club. Close to the town of Ogallala, Nebraska.

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay here to celebrate our son's 2nd birthday. Everyone had their own room and bathroom which was a plus! There was so much space to run around, great if you are traveling with kids. The basement is full of entertainment which we didn't even utilize because we had so much fun being outdoors. There were plenty of chairs to sit outside and extra in the garage. The kitchen was stocked so not necessary to bring extra cookware or supplies. The onsite laundry was a plus including a great dishwasher and extra trash cans in the garage (great for our birthday party). There is a lot of natural light throughout the house and the sunrise and sunset views can't be beat. The directions did lead us down several wrong roads but other than that, we very much enjoyed out stay here. We hope to return!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Of the five different places we stayed on this vacation, this was by far the favorite! Absolutely stunning views, clean and comfortable living quarters with absolutely everything you would need, and the kids LOVED the downstairs complete with pool table, ping pong, and air hockey. Hope to come back!!! Thank you!!!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The home is very lovely with a great view and plenty to do at the house when we weren't sleeping or fishing. We packed more than we needed to as the house came with everything we needed besides food and clothes. Would stay here again. 10/10

Very nice house, great view!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice, clean, well kept home! Only 4 of us ladies stayed for our weekend getaway, but it was wonderful! The view of the lake is stunning, we were quite content to relax in the back yard rather than spending a lot of time at the lake. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! It was a great girls weekend for 8 of us women! The weather was cool and rainy all weekend, so we were pleased to find a ping pong and pool table downstairs, and a fire pit outside. Very functional house all around. Great stay!

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Candice, thank you so much for opening up your home to us!! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and accommodating home for the six of us. We thoughouly enjoyed playing pool/ping pong, relaxing on the back deck watching the lightening storms over the lake, and even saw deer on the property. We had plenty of room to park two trailers hauling a boat and jet skis. We will definitely be back as your home is absolutely amazing---love all the decorations!!!

Thank you again!!!

Traci

Bring your frisbee BUT be sure you have non-sandle shoes as there are some wicked sticker weeds....they have been mowed down so they aren't tall but they are mean ones in the fields!

If time permits visit Lake Ogallala and see the out flow of water from the big lake dam into Lake Ogallala. It's pretty impressive!
