Linwood lodge description

Lost Island Lodge is located on a secluded, wooded island, on 200 private acres near Schuyler Ne., overlooking the beautiful Platte River, a 1 hr drive (Approximately 60 miles) from Omaha or Lincoln. The rustic lodge and attached bunkhouse are used as a waterfowl hunting lodge during fall and winter with the facilities being perfect for summertime weekend gatherings, or week-long vacations. Swim, relax, sunbathe, canoe & kayak, fish, or wade & explore in the river and it's sandbars. Enjoy the peaceful lodge with fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, air conditioning, wood burning stove, loft, great room, sunroom, covered deck, and spacious patio, all with captivating, panoramic views of the river. Take nature walks, bring your bike, or hike our trails. Our family, guests, and customers have enjoyed the island for years and always look forward to their next visit. We're confident yours will too.


Lost Island hunting club and lodge.: We have operated our family owned hunting club at Lost Island for over 30 years. We offer guided, and non-guided hunts and lodging throughout the waterfowl season. Our hunting is done on our improved wetlands from electrified, heated blinds and pits, as well as portable and permanent heated blinds from sandbars and islands on our 1.5 miles of Platte River. Ice out systems ensure a quality hunt even during cold, late season outings. Our lodge and bunkhouse were built in 1993, and 1998 respectively. Extensive wetland enhancement projects were completed in 1996, with approximately 70 acres flooded during the fall . Our most recent improvement is a heated indoor game processing facility complete with stainless steel table and sinks, walk-in cooler, hot & cold running water, ceiling fan, and bar. Guides Lounge and Highballers Club coming soon. Additionally, Late season deer hunts and spring turkey hunts are available. References, rates, and available dates provided upon request.
