About Christy Nielsen

I am from southeast Iowa but have lived in Nebraska a total of twenty-five years. I am a nurse specialist in healthcare systems. My husband is an independent trucker and a farmer.

Christy Nielsen purchased this house in 2014

Why Christy Nielsen chose Weeping Water

We bought this property because it is near our farm and we hope to keep it open as a guesthouse. You can visit the city anytime but often it is hard to visit the country and truly experience the beauty of being in a farm-like setting.

What makes this house unique

Peace and absolute privacy. May freely roam the property and have all the benefits of home.

The 2017 Solar Eclipse AND SO MUCH MORE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We made reservations at Sunset Vista for the Great American Solar Eclipse of Aug 2017 mostly because it was in a great location for the big event. Little did we know that, not only would be have a grand eclipse experience, but we would be utterly wrapped in the quiet hospitality of Sunset Vista! What a charming, delightful and peaceful property! Between the little touches of country charm in the meticulously kept house, to the history of the buildings to the friendly, gentle animals (and I must mention the comfy beds!) ....we truly did not want to leave! Thank you, Christy! Our thanks, also, to Miss Kitty and all her animal-friend ambassadors!

A peaceful gem!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Vista was a wonderful property and home. The farm itself is a charming treasure with a beautiful, peaceful setting, lovely woods, a mulberry tree, friendly farm animals and abundant wildlife. The house was very comfortable and very clean. It was child-friendly for our 5 year old and 18-month old, they loved both being inside and outside. The back porch with a porch swing was one of our favorite places. There is no wi-fi, if that is important to you, but we were able to get cell service and internet access most of the time through our phones. We also appreciated being more unplugged. We will seriously consider visiting this part of Nebraska more often so that we can go back to Sunset Vista. Thanks Christy!

Beautiful old farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this century old farmhouse on a quiet and secluded corn field. The house had charming old-fashioned decor and was very well stocked in the kitchen and bathroom. Being able to visit with the animals on the property added to the the charm. True to its name, the view of the sunset as well as the stars was spectacular. This is a great place for both adults and children to unplug and get away from today's world and step back in time to a different era. Our host was very pleasant and made sure we had all we needed for a wonderful stay.

The sunsets did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, charming place! My husband and I wrapped up our trip at this lovely farm. Even though we weren't too far from home, we're so happy that we made the stop at Sunset Vista Farm. Christy's husband, Doug, stopped by to feed the animals and we ended up having a nice visit with him. The attention to detail in the house was unmatched - everything was spotless, the kitchen was fully stocked and we felt right at home. We loved spending time with Miss Kitty, Vindy, Cocoa Willie, Greycee, LuLu and Breezy. It was a pleasant change of scenery for us and we will definitely be making a return trip. We would love to bring our grandkids - they would get a kick out of the animals. Thank you Christy and Doug for the amazing hospitality!

My sister and I absolutely loved it. Everything was perfect (except for the weather). The animals truly warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face. Especially Miss Kitty. I live close by but will have to keep this in mind when I have an extended break. It is the perfect home away from home.

Beautiful & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean little guesthouse. The animals are wonderful and sweet. The house was perfect for our little family of 3. Enjoyed breakfast from the fresh goodies Christy left, made lunch to take with us and ate dinner out. The sunrise and sunsets were truly gorgeous! We would definitely stay here again!
