Overview

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.

About Anthony

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.

Anthony purchased this house in 1987

Why Anthony chose Lake McConaughy

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!

What makes this house unique

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 150 yards down a small access road, we are away from congestion, noise and crowds. There is a huge driveway for your cars and boat. The property has a built in Fish and Game Cleaning house for easy and insect free cleaning! It's the perfect destination for family and group fun! If you seek comfort and privacy, this is the property for you!

This clean, pleasant house accommodated our family reunion beautifully

  • 5 of 5

We came to Nebraska to see the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse, and this pleasant house served as a fine base camp. The house is clean, and everything works -- no squeaky doors, no saggy beds, no clogged sinks, no broken kitchen appliances. The kitchen is well laid out and well stocked, so many cooks can work on meals together. Two refrigerators are a plus. The little bar area is fun, and the screen porch is nice for those who might want to sleep in the fresh air.

The house can easily accommodate 10 people -- there are several distinct areas to gather, so you don't feel as if everyone is crammed into one room. There's a dining room, an adjacent living room, and then a room that has a TV. The house has an open feel.

There is a lot of train traffic on the Union Pacific line that's a few blocks away, but with windows closed, the train noise didn't affect our sleep at all. The lake is a short walk away, and the deck provides a nice view of the lake during the day, and of the stars at night.

We're glad we stayed here!

Not a luxury place but very clean and very comfortable and enjoyable to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Spend 3 days with friends and went fishing. Home had everything you could or would need. Ran out of propane on grill and property manager brought a new tank over immediately. Just a comfortable place and would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Depends on your definition of luxury. No, it's not a five star million dollar mansion on the beach in the Caribbean, but as you referenced, a very clean comfortable well-stocked home in a beautiful location in western Nebraska! My property manager is outstanding, close by, nobody more willing and able to meet your needs. Her and her husband are salt of the earth, beautiful, accommodating people! So blessed to have them helping with this wonderful property! Thank you.

Enjoyed our stay and roomy!

  • 4 of 5

Convenient location and as described. Any surprises were pleasant ones as the house has pretty much anything you might need during your stay. Even with 10 people you do not feel crowded while in the house.

Perfect cabin for group of friends or family!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cabin for our group of 10 spending the weekend at the lake. Quiet neighborhood with beautiful views of the lake. Very spacious and large rooms throughout the entire cabin. Plenty of living space for all 10 of us to spend the evenings together. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with everything you would need for a weekend or week enjoying the lake! We will definitely be returning!
