We are an easy 20-30 minute drive to everywhere in Omaha. In every bedroom you will find fresh 100% cotton sheets, an iron, ironing board, a hair dryer, snacks, and bottled water. Enjoy the large screen TV in the lower level and wifi throughout the home. Comfortably sleeps 8 with one bathroom in the lower level and one in the upper level. Relax and unwind on our large shaded deck and patio overlooking the lake. Enjoy fishing or a leisurely walk on the 1.7 mile trail around the lake.
You will love the gorgeous views while relaxing on our deck, patio, or from inside our beautiful and spacious home! You will enjoy three private bedrooms each with queen-size comfortable beds. The main level bedroom has an attached full private bathroom. We also have an extra super comfortable double bed in the lower level in an open area (see photos). Two of the lower level bedrooms are a suite of two bedrooms with a shared Jack and Jill bathroom. In addition to using our upper level, you can use our walk-out lower level for relaxing, watching television, and playing pool on our full-sized pool table. Please note that our lower level is not fully finished. The bedrooms, bathroom, ceilings, and lighting are finished as you can see. They are newly drywalled, newly painted, newly carpeted and ceramic tiled, and with new lighting and ceiling fans. The bedrooms and bathroom are exceptionally clean and comfortable.
You will have access to all areas of our home except: 1) the main floor master bedroom suite areas where my husband and I will be residing; 2) the lower level storage areas; and 3) the garage. You can use our circle driveway to park your car(s), enter through our front door, use our living room, lower level pool table area, patio, and deck for relaxing. It's an easy 30-minute drive to TD Ameritrade Park, Old Market, CenturyLink Center, and the Henry Doorly Zoo. Our washer and dryer are available for your use upon request.
Interaction with guests
Small to moderate amount--depending on your preference. My husband or I will be present for the majority of time during your stay.
Other things to note
My husband and I will be at the house for the majority of the time while you are there. We'll provide a simple breakfast for you each morning. We usually have cereal, fresh whole milk, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, toast, and yogurt. We have wireless internet available for your use at all times. We strive to make your visit comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable.
Check-in can be as early as 4:00 p.m. and check-out by 11:00 a.m. (We are flexible--just let us know.) We'd like lights out and folks going to sleep by midnight. No parties. Absolutely no smoking or any type of tobacco use or illegal drug use anywhere--inside or outside at any time during your stay with us. Alcoholic beverages in moderation are allowed. We do not smoke or have pets. We do love pets though, and would consider allowing a small well trained, well cared for, dog if we are notified in advance.
I'm originally from Orleans, Nebraska and have lived in Nebraska all my life. My husband is originally from Texas, but being from an active duty Army family, he lived in several different places including Arizona, Texas, Nebraska, and Alaska. Our profile picture is at our 40th anniversary celebration. We have two wonderful grown children who both live in the Omaha area, two adorable grandsons and a beautiful little granddaughter!!! Our children and grandchildren are our lives! I have a full-time job as a speech/language pathologist in Omaha and absolutely love working with children and helping them improve their communication skills. My husband is retired from teaching and from serving 40 years with the Nebraska Army National Guard. He is now an avid trap shooter. We built our lake home five years ago. Instead of downsizing, we upsized (rather unnecessarily), but we've always wanted to live on a lake with pretty views, and now we have that AND some extra room, so we've decided to open it up to guests. I love meeting and hosting my airbnb guests!!!
