About the property

402.202.1776

The Penthouse Suite is the largest and most luxurious suite located at the Grand Manse. You enter the suite through original oak double doors and onto terrazzo flooring installed in 1904. The entry foyer leads you into an open floor plan showcasing a three-sided fireplace encased in a warm neutral flat face stone. The mocha colored walnut cabinetry in the kitchen is a beautiful contrast to the creamy white working-island with prep sink. The top of the line stainless steel appliances are any professional cook’s dream. Take the grand open staircase to 5th floor and admire the tile work in all three bathrooms located on this level. Natural light floods every room through windows and skylights in each bedroom. If the rec room isn’t enough for the party, head up to the private roof deck and enjoy the game on the huge stadium HuskerVision screen while grilling out or relaxing in the six-person hot tub.

The Penthouse requires a minimum 2-night stay, and with the ability to sleep 20 people in the 6 bedroom, 5-bathroom suite, your weekend stay would be one to remember!

Located in the heart of downtown Lincoln within walking distance to the University of Nebraska, Memorial Stadium, Pinnacle Bank Arena, Amtrak Station, Haymarket Park, Lied Center, downtown bars and restaurants as well as the Historic Haymarket District … just a block away.

The Grand Manse is a location unlike any other in Nebraska. The histories of some of Nebraska’s famous citizens have been interwoven with the history of the space in its former incarnation as the U.S. Court House and Post Office. The Grand Manse, reflects the building itself “the great house” filled to the roof with marble, terrazzo, oak, maple, brass and many of the elements that were fundamental materials used when a grand structure was being built in 1904. It also reflects the new chapter in history that is being built in the space: the stories of brides and grooms, honored guests, esteemed retirees and executives, who choose The Grand Manse as the perfect venue for their celebrations, events, specialty and corporate lodging.

About Monte Froehlich

The Grand Manse is a location unlike any other in Lincoln or even in Nebraska. The histories of some of Nebraska’s famous citizens have been interwoven with the history of the space in its former incarnation as the U.S. Court House and Post Office. Today, owners Monte and Lisa Froehlich are dedicated to once again making the Grand Manse a hub in downtown Lincoln. The building now houses 50 residential units, beautiful event space, luxury lodging suites, Thai restaurant, several offices and the Boiler Brewing Company - an award winning, locally owned and operated craft brewery. The Grand Manse stands not only at the geographical crossroads of Lincoln, but at the intersection between the city’s rich past and it’s promising future.

Today’s new name, The Grand Manse, reflects the building itself “the great house” filled to the roof with marble, terrazzo, oak, maple, brass and many of the elements that were fundamental materials used when a grand structure was being built in 1904. It also reflects the new chapter in history that is being built in the space: the stories of brides and grooms, honored guests, esteemed retirees and executives, who will choose The Grand Manse as the perfect venue for their celebrations, events, and lodging.

Monte Froehlich purchased this condo in 2007

Why Monte Froehlich chose Lincoln

Location is perfect. Being centered between the Historic Haymarket and the heart of Downtown, you can walk to everything. Lied Center, movie theater, great restaurants (you don't even have to leave the building to get Lincoln's best Thai food at Blue Orchid), Pinnacle Bank Arena, art galleries, churches, you name it!

What makes this condo unique

Walking distance to Memorial Stadium, this downtown condo makes a great place to stay on game day weekends! If you don't have tickets to the game, sit on the private rooftop deck with perfect views of Husker Vision!

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with Lisa and Monte through the reservation process and

while onsite was exceptional! They were responsive and gracious in making

sure our stay was worry free. The accommodation was amazing - everything

has been updated along with a chef inspired kitchen. Our group was

thoroughly impressed with the three levels of living space which includes

an outstanding roof top deck. And the location couldn't be more perfect.

We enthusiastically recommend staying at The Penthouse in the Grand Manse

- you will not be disappointed!

Again thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your home with us,

it was perfect in every way! Go Big Red!!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We were just guests for a few hours of the party that rented this property and we were simply amazed. This is one of the best locations we have ever seen. The party that rented this location had nothing but wonderful things to say about the owners of this location. I would highly recommend this to anyone, we were in awe the entire time we were there.

Grand Manse Penthouse Suite

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Manse Penthouse has been a wonderful place for the Realtors to have some our most prestigious events. Our dinner parties of 40 plus people have been fabulous and we now have our members asking what do they need to do to receive and invite. We will again be having this special event in January. Thanks to the wonderful hospitality of Monte and Lisa Froehlich. I would highly recommend anyone to contact the Grand Manse for details for an event or an overnight stay!

We are so pleased to learn that holding these events in the Penthouse has increased interest in attendance. It is extremely gratifying to know that the Penthouse is a highly sought-after event space.

Loved Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked the Penthouse in the Grand Manse for the Nebraska v. Miami football game. There were 15 of us that stayed, and we could have easily fit 5-7 more people! The staff was excellent, the Penthouse was beautiful, and the location was UNBEATABLE. We were only 5 minutes away from the stadium, and we tailgated all day on the Penthouse roof deck! Well worth the money spent. We will definitely be booking another night or two again! Thanks!

Owner's Response: We couldn't be happier to know that our guests had an amazing time during their stay in the Penthouse. We remain committed to our goal of offering a truly unique and breathtaking space that all guests and visitors will enjoy. Features like the roof top deck are extremely rare - especially in Lincoln, NE. You could actually watch the game on the big screen they have in Memorial Stadium right from the roof deck if you wanted to! The Penthouse certainly makes for a wonderful experience for all who visit.
