It's the perfect place to stay for the College World Series, Youth Baseball camps, Berkshire Hathaway Annual Stockholders Meeting, Olympic Trials and more!! Visitors come from as far away as England and as close as west Omaha to enjoy the Beach House.
This home boasts an amazing open floor plan and views of the lake from all rooms. The kitchen includes a dining area for 8 and opens up to a family and living room areas. Sliding doors take you out to the furnished patio where you can watch the sunset on the lake or view the resident wildlife including bald eagles and blue herron as well as migrating fowl like pelicans and cormorant ducks in the spring and fall. Relax on the beach by the water or by the fire pit outdoors in the evenings and wake up to stunning lake views in the mornings. Spend the day by the lake or in the city. You will absolutely love your time here at the Beach House and leave completely relaxed and back in your element.
I grew up in Michigan on an inland lake where I developed my love for life on the water. I learned to swim at 1 year old, water skiing at 6 and started sailing solo at 7. The water has always been my best friend whether it is in the form of glass water or fluffy white powder. After I graduated from Michigan State University I moved to Huntington Beach, California where I started my career in Packaging Engineering. I lived in CA for 12 years and then moved with my company to Nebraska in 2004. I've lived here on the lake ever since and love the midwest life and people every day.
owner/property manager purchased this house in 2009
I love this property because it is a great ski lake and has a slalom course. It is very laid back, fun and feels so far away from city life while only being a short drive to downtown Omaha. When I put work away for the day, I come home to paradise every day of the week. I feel very fortunate and love to share this experience with friends and guests.
A beach paradise in the middle of the the Midwest!!! What more can you ask for?!?!
Kelly and her family were great guests and left the Beach House in great shape. I would gladly rent to them again!
We had an incredible time at this home. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. It really is exactly like the pictures. The beach is perfect for young kids since it is a very mild slope. Brad was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. We had no luck fishing, but that didn't ruin our trip. The only reason I have it 4 stars is the smell of the water. I know it has been addressed in other reviews. But it is very strong and overpowers the house for a little while. The shower in the sunroom seemed to smell less, so all 7 of us showered in there.
We had an amazing time at Brad's Beach House!! :) Brad was an amazing host and his house is absolutely gorgeous! Our three young boys spent hours playing in the sand and swimming in the lake. We also were close enough to Omaha to explore the sights there as well. We finished each day playing volleyball and making smores. We were beyond happy with our stay. Thanks Brad!!
Brad is a great host and thoroughly delivers the perfect Beach House. We could not have had a better stay. The flow of the house and user interactivity added to the enjoyment. It was the kind of place you wanted to get up early and enjoy a cup of coffee out on the patio or dock watching the sunrise, and stay up late and enjoy the company in the open spaces of the house. Five star property with a five star host. Plan on returning.
We came to Omaha for the Olympic Swimming Trials. We wanted a vacation home on the water to stay in so we could enjoy hanging out as a family, instead of using hotel rooms. It worked out perfectly for us. It is about a 25 minute drive into the city. We commuted back and forth and enjoyed the quiet lake community. Brad has great neighbors and he was very hospitable and welcoming to us. He even hung an Olympic flag in his front yard in enthusiasm for our son being a qualifier! Brad responded quickly to questions and was available and helpful to us during our stay.
The house was well stocked and very clean. He loves indoor and outdoor plants and we didn't mind watering those for him during our week long stay, which he asked us to do. The third upstairs bedroom is accessed by a spiral metal staircase, which wasn't a problem for us because we put two teenage daughters up there, but it might be helpful to know depending on the ages of guests. The beds were very comfortable, which is important to me.
Overall, it was a great place and we would stay here again! Thanks, Brad, for your warm welcome!
It was a bit of a last minute trip and Brad was very responsive in helping to accommodate us. My wife and I with our 2 kids (one 6 weeks old!) and 2 sets of grandparents all got together to have a relaxing weekend at the lake house. There was plenty of room in the house for us all when we were inside, although we spent the majority of the time on the back patio/ beach. Whilst we were only there for a short time we did get out for some food and I can highly recommend Stella's for its burgers.
When it comes to booking a home rather than a hotel one of the main things I look for is responsiveness and customer service. Brad really excelled on this. Both leading up to and during our stay no questions seemed too mundane (right down to where are the bags for the corn hole!). He was very quick and helpful in all responses.
I would definitely recommend this property to someone looking for a relaxing time away with family - I know its on my radar for our next trip up towards Omaha.
Brad was an awesome host and the property was exactly as it was described. It was a fantastic place to spend a few days with our 3 teenagers! A lot to do at the property and we visited some great local sites as well. Would highly recommend Brad's Beach House!
