Recently renovated just for VRBO! Lots of natural light and expansive garden views. Plenty of on-street parking with a secure, gated entrance.

About Eric Elnes
Eric and Melanie Elnes are both working professionals with a passion for good food, fine wine, art, and the great out-of-doors. We love being a stone's throw from Omaha's Old Market with its many restaurants, unique shops, entertainment venues, and bars. We're empty nesters with two (young) adult daughters.
Eric Elnes purchased this House in 2008
Why Eric Elnes chose Dahlman
This property is one of the most unique properties in Omaha. In ten years, nearly every person who has walked through our front gate says something to the effect of, "Oh, wow!" It's our urban oasis, with a completely walled off, secure courtyard. The main house (in which we live) is right next to the Guest House, so we're readily at hand if you need something, yet will give you complete privacy if you want it. The Guest House was built in 1890 and was originally a "Settlement House" for immigrants before they got set up with their own place. It has been fully renovated! But you're staying in a piece of Omaha history. The Main House was built in 1895 as a Czech dance hall. Then it became the "Glass Front Bar" famous for its good beer and fabulous burgers. In 1991 a commercial real estate developer looked at the whole property and said, "This would be a fabulous private residence" and he remodeled everything to a high standard because it became HIS residence. We purchased the property in 2008 after falling immediately in love with it. Our love has never lost it's luster. Now, we're sharing it with you!
What makes this House unique
Totally unique location you can't find anywhere in Omaha - or even the mid-West. The guest house has giant glass windows that look out onto the courtyard. The courtyard was designed by a master gardener/artist and has an amazing basalt fountain in the middle. The Guest House shares a large, 1000 sq ft deck with the main house as well as a separate BBQ patio with fire pit. This property is also rented for wedding and graduation parties (for an extra fee) because of its beauty. Extra tables and chairs are available for rent if you need them. The property is a 10-min walk to the Old Market and a 20 min walk to the College World Series, CenturyLink Arena, and the famous Henry Doorly Zoo (#1 in the nation).

Guest House and Main House at Dahlman Place in Little Bohemia
We had a memorable family gathering weekend while staying at the Main House and Guest House in Little Bohemia in Omaha. Loved the space for extended family. Loved the Donut Shop, coffee shop across the street, and Henry Doorly Zoo. Owners were very responsive and the space was clean, neat, and comfortable. Could not have been more pleased!
