About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

We were the VERY FIRST VRBO listing, and started it all! This spacious and beautiful fully furnished Lake home borders the shores of Lake McConaughy. WOW, what a view of the entire lake from the deck! It is close to nature’s best wildlife preserves, such as Clear Creek State Wildlife Management Area and Crescent Lake National Wildlife Refuge. It is also close to historical Ash Hollow State Park and Oregon Trail. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, enclosed patio, deck, spacious grounds and fish/game cleaning hut. This is an exceptional destination home! WHAT A VIEW IT HAS!

This gorgeous Lake Home features vaulted ceilings and windows throughout to create an open and spacious feel. It is beautifully furnished with quality art and furniture. It is heated/air conditioned! There is a washer and dryer, dishwasher, gas grill, picnic table and many more amenities, including Cable TV. The home is immaculate, private and tastefully decorated with a wildlife and seaside theme. It comfortably sleeps 10, but NO more. This property is designed and geared for sports groups, including hunters and fishermen, and families, who love the outdoors activities of the area, including boating, fishing, golfing, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing and hunting. It is also a perfect sanctuary, retreat or laboratory for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers. Great for wildlife photography and bird watching! Located near the West end in the Marina Landing subdivision, this home overlooks the entire lake, and has beach and boat launch access 100 yards down a small beach access road, depending on lake levels!
It is authentic America at its best, right in the middle of the Great Midwest! America the way it used to be a half a century ago. A cosmic relief from today’s society. An incredible retreat to rejuvenate and refresh! An easy 3.5/4 hour drive from Denver, flat and safe highways with lots of rest areas! Check out the rest stop in Sterling, fantastic! No traffic congested I-70! DID I MENTION THE VIEW IT HAS?!!

You will love this ultimate get-away in the Great American Midwest.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Hello, my family has been coming up to Lake McConaughy for 48 years! We love it and want to share it with other sports enthusiasts, hunters and fishermen and women, and nature lovers. It is truly an authentic American experience - the beautiful and friendly Midwest at it's best. We enjoy going to Nebraska for the hospitality and friendly people. There's no place like it to find peace and to commune with nature! Lake McConaughy is one of America's greatest secrets! We love it year round, and appreciate the quiet family time it gives us; there is something different to experience in each and every season of the year.

Why the Owner Chose Lewellen, NE, USA:
This beautiful home is on the highest point of Marina Landing and was custom built in 1987, after patronizing the Lake at other places the prior 20 years. We love Lake McConaughy for it's unique body of water which enables any number of water sports, and for it's hunting location, especially in the fall. We also chose the area for it's rural beauty, and because it's the perfect retreat to remind you of the inner peace offered by the beauty of nature. WHAT A VIEW IT HAS!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will love the comfortable home with beautiful furnishing, and everything you need to complete your experience. It offers beautiful views, artwork and custom features. Star gazing at night is the best, no city lights to compete with! We have so many happy family memories there. Beach access is 100 yards down a small access road,we are away from congestion, noise and crowds. There is a huge driveway for your cars and boat. It's the perfect destination for family and group fun! If you seek comfort and privacy, this is the property for you!
