|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
This is a spacious, 2100 sq ft, classic 'PRAIRIE STYLE' home. This turn-of-the-century home offers five bedrooms and two full baths, a fully furnished kitchen, separate dining room, and large living room. There are four good-size bedrooms upstairs, and one large bedroom on the main floor with private entrance. There is also a full bathroom on each floor. The back yard is close to an acre with a fabulous deck and garden. This home will accommodate 8 to 10 guests at a rate of $500/night.
Our home is 5 miles from downtown or the Qwest Center and Ameritrade Park - about 10-15 minutes drive time. It is only 5 minutes from the College World Series shuttle at the Westroads. We are centrally located with easy access to shopping and great restaurants.
In addition there is high speed wireless internet, Direct TV, LED TV in living room, all linens, washer/dryer, and much more. There is ample off street parking, and the neighborhood is very safe. We do not allow pets or smoking.
This 100+ year old home has been remarkably well-preserved in addition to having all modern conveniences. There are original oak and Tigers Eye Maple wood floors, 9 ft ceilings with original plaster cove, and numerous antique pieces. Our home has been well cared for and we want renters who will do the same.
We are life-long residents of Omaha, and love the city and its people. We are both educators and never tire of exploring the great outdoors.
Theresa purchased this house in 2003
This is such a beautiful historic home, and has great access to all activities in the city.
This home feels like you are going back one hundred year; which you are. It is one hundred and three years old this year. We just found out that our catalpa tree is the state record holder! During our modernizing we have been very careful not to destroy the homes original character. It is a home that truly captures a bygone era.
We rented this house for a long weekend for a family reunion. Ten of the 15 attendants, including 5 children, stayed here, the rest stayed in a hotel but came here to hang out. It worked well- there was plenty of space for our large group to gather on the deck and lawn, around the dining room table, or in the living room. The house was very clean and well-maintained and the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. We loved the huge old tree in the backyard and all the bird feeders.
The only problem I found with this property - and this would be expected in a house of this age- was that each room is quite small- containing one twin, two twins, or a full-size bed. This would be fine for people traveling without kids but it was a little complicated for families with young children. We ended up packing several people in a few rooms, with some sleeping in air mattresses on the floor and at least one room ended up empty. This arrangement worked out fine for us but perhaps wouldn't be for everyone. Also, the layout, bed sizes, etc.. of the rooms was a little difficult to figure out from the listing.
The room layouts and the abundance of nice decorations and beautiful woodwork made it perhaps less than ideal for small children. However, in other ways it was great for the kids- there was a big yard, a basketball hoop, lots of birds for our young birder, lots of videos in the living room and master bedroom, and enough space on the living room floor for cousins to camp out together.
We had a wonderful stay here- it's really a special house and property. We would definitely recommend it to others!
Charming home with a lot of character. We enjoyed staying there for the weekend. It gave us plenty of room for everything we needed and wanted to do. The one drawback was we had to share one bathroom because we went with the 4 bedroom/1bathroom set up. We'd be happy to stay here again if the opportunity presented itself.
I stayed in the lockout while working on my dissertation proposal. The owner was a lovely host and the area was perfect for what I was looking for. There was a dorm 'fridge and microwave which I kept some snacks in. It was quiet, near restaurants and shopping places, and the owner was fantastic. She was incredibly accommodating and kind.
I will say that the price may be a little high for the lock out, as it didn't have a full kitchen and was pretty small (it's a closed in porch, that has had a bathroom added). This was absolutely fine for me, as I was just writing and reading, but I also could have rented full houses for a little less and have had access to the kitchen, multiple bedrooms & bathrooms, etc. I also would not recommend more than two people staying in the lock out at one time.
Overall, this was perfect for me, but would not recommend the lock out for large groups or people who want a lot of space to spread out.
Several of my close friends and I met at this house for an evening in Omaha before my friend's wedding. I think that if I had seen this house before hand, I might have passed on it. It's not what you'd think when you hear the words "Bachelor Party".
That being said, the house is beautiful. Theresa and her family have things set up in such a way that we all felt quite at home. We ran into a few speed bumps with the internet and the locks on the home, but Theresa got back to me quickly, and everything was taken care of.
Several of my friends (in their mid 20's) weren't won over at the beginning of the evening, but by the next morning, everyone told me how much they enjoyed staying there. There were a few guidelines that I was worried might be looked over by my friends, but everyone was respectful (I hope Theresa agrees!).
While it's probably not the best place for several guys in their mid-20's to hang out for the evening, I'd still recommend this house. We all felt at home staying there, and it'd make for a nice weekend retreat. I'm not too familiar with Omaha, but I felt that it was located fairly centrally to all the places we wound up going that day, and it was easy to find.
Everything was suitable for our stay. Much down time was spent on the deck, which was very nice. Theresa was great with the walk thru and enabling WI FI, which wasn't present upon arrival.
The lone factor that sets hotel stays apart from renting a home is house keeping. With a crew of 6 males, our presence was definitely felt with the clutter left out and about. The upstairs shower lacked pressure. Overall I am satisfied, and would consider renting the house again upon our return should hotels again be unavailable, as was the case this time around due to the college world series and Olympic swimming trials being held in town.
This lovely home is 10-15 MINUTES from the Qwest Center, TD Ameritrade Park and other downtown landmarks such as Joslyn Art Museum, Durham Museum, and the Holland Performing Arts Center.
You are within 5 MINUTES of Westroads shopping mall, and dozens of great restaurants, 4 Golf Courses, and 3 Movie Theaters.
There is easy Interstate access to Henry Doorly Zoo, Lauritzen Botanical Gardens, and 15 minutes to Coco Keys Indoor Waterpark and Fun-Plex Waterpark with Miniature Golf.
The Strategic Air and Space Museum, Mahoney State Park, Wildlife Safari Park, DeSoto Bend National Wildlife Refuge,and Platte River State Park are 30 minutes via freeway.
