About Stephen

You may have guessed the picture isn't of me. It is the age our twins were when we purchased this vacation home. They were doing their part to get things ready. Now we have a family of 6 so lots to do in our household. We do live in the area and have a maintenance supervisor should you need to get a hold of myself or need other assistance.

Stephen purchased this house in 2007

Why Stephen chose Nebraska

We love lake activities and full service lakes close to Omaha just don't exist. So when we found this property at a reasonable value on a full service lake we had to snatch it up.

What makes this house unique

We hope that you are able to enjoy all the benefits of a lake property while still being so close to downtown Omaha, the world's best zoo, CenturyLink Center, TD Ameritrade ballpark, the airport and so much more. It is truly a little piece of paradise.

The house itself was perfect! There were a bunch of guys in town to play in a soccer tournament, myself included, and we stayed here. It fit us with no problem and was comfortable and close to downtown. We were all very impressed with the house overall. Bathrooms are a little small, but we managed just fine. We would definitely stay again if we ever visit the area in the future.

Relaxing Lakehouse Stay

  • 4 of 5

This home is convenient to the airport and downtown and is located in the quiet little town of Carter Lake. It's a little tired but clean and had everything we needed to have a great weekend visiting our Creighton student. Especially nice to open an empty fridge, no leftover condiments to shuffle around! We would definitely consider staying here again in lieu of a hotel.

Would recommend for an extended family

  • 4 of 5

The lay out of the house was very open and furniture comfortable. Everything was clean. Nice laundry room to use. Kitchen met the needs of our 7 people well, and could have easily accommodated another 3-5. Easy access to zoo (about 10-15 min drive) and other activities.

4 Stars due to access road is an alley, so a bit concerning at first, but all turned out to be fine. Also, beds were very, very firm, though some slept on these fine. Ice machine in frig didn't work and no ice trays available. Though it may have just been a new development. Overall, we enjoyed the house and would recommend for a big group.

Lovely view

  • 3 of 5

House was clean and had plenty of room for our group. The property is close to the zoo, Old Market, and the walking bridge. Great view of the lake!! We walked along the lake and played lawn games.

Only complaint we had was the outside maintenance. Spider webs welcomed us at the front door, along with overgrown plants. We did have to clean the deck before we could grill and eat outdoors. We enjoyed the view off the deck and the privacy for entertaining. We picked up and made piles of large branches off the lawn so we could play lawn games.

We enjoyed our stay.

The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The views over looking the lake were breathtaking, the open floor plan was wonderful with my family of 8. We enjoyed yourselves, making breakfast and dinner, Memories we will enjoy for many years. If i find myself in the area I hope the rental is available.
