Our comfortable, family friendly home is in southern Nebraska on scenic Harlan County Lake and Reservoir. This large home is the perfect space to get away from it all and will help you find that serenity you are looking for. This is a great space to have family gatherings or large friend groups such as a women's weekend. Included in the several outdoor spaces are a balcony, screened in porch, front porch and back deck. This large beautifully landscaped yard offers lots of privacy and extra outdoor space for entertaining. You can enjoy the calming sound of our pond that includes a waterfall while relaxing on the screened in porch or sitting on the front porch swing. If you are a bird watcher you will love the large variety of birds that come to drink at the waterfall. Evenings are the perfect spot to sit on our balcony and enjoy the evening sunset & watch for wildlife in the fields below. Nearly every evening the deer find their way through the front yard. There is also a large covered back deck with patio table and chairs and area for relaxing and meals. Soft lighting makes this a great place to enjoy the warm summer evenings in Nebraska.
Indoors we have lots of space including a large family room with fireplace and table and chairs for extra seating. There is also a living room with open kitchen and dining area. On the main floor there are 2 bedrooms with King beds. One bedroom includes a open half bath. There is also a pantry area set up for gatherings that has lots of shelving for overflow food storage and counter space for buffet style serving. I have anticipated your needs for group entertaining and pantry includes a large roaster, divided warming tray, crock pot, drink dispensers and several large bowls and platters for serving. In this home there is only one full bath with shower and tub. When large groups are showering, we recommend you take advantage of the showers that are a short drive over to Hunter Camp ground.
Upstairs is a split level bedroom that has 1 Queen bed, 1 twin bed and a cushioned roll away bed. This is a large area and would have enough room for air beds if needed. There is also a long open balcony overlooking family room that has 2 twin beds and a futon. There is also extra room in this area for air mattresses. This also allows access the outdoor balcony with sliding glass doors.
This home is extremely well insulated and very quiet for those of you looking for lots of peace and serenity. Nebraska is known for its summer storms and we have a large above ground storm shelter to keep you safe during your stay. Easy to access from the screened in porch.
We also have a pop-up camper that will sleep 6 that is available to rent. It is under a covered area and just feet from the door. Cushions provided but you will be responsible for your own sleeping bags and pillows. We will have it all set up with electricity provided to it. Please contact us to make arrangements for reservations on this. There is plenty of yard space and you are also welcome to set up tents if needed.
Harlan County Lake is found in south central Nebraska and is located in the very beautiful Republican Valley. This lake offers the best in lake fun and has some of the best fishing and hunting in Nebraska. Go to to see local activities! Late summer tubing down the Republican River is also a favorite. We have several large tubes for you to rent if you are up for a float down this lazy river. We also have a paddle boat available for you to rent that is best used off of the lake in boat launch areas. Boat rentals are also available at North Shore Marina that is just down the road. If you have your own boat, you will be able to launch it at Hunter Cove which is about 1/2 mile from the cabin. We also have parking for your boat when it is out of the water.
We will consider your pet for approval. Small pets only indoors. We have a leash law in the area and no pets are allowed to run freely.
We are confident you will find this to be a great value for the space compared to other lodging in the area. Be sure to contact us with any questions. Our priority is for you to have a comfortable relaxing stay!
