Very generous host

  • 5 of 5

Host was extremely generous with all supplies, linens, water, paper supplies, a pen and paper in every bedroom. It felt like staying at a family members home, great supply of books. The grounds are just beautiful, bird song in abundance. Seven of us stayed, then seven more joined for a graduation party, used the grill provided, just a great stay. Rural address but excellent roads and conveniently located to get right in to Omaha.

Beautiful property!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property that this house is on is so much better than photos could capture. It's really a beautiful retreat not that far from Omaha. The house is large and is full of anything you might need. The kitchen is very well stocked and the large dining room make meals with many people easy and fun. Thanks Leo!

Charming Country Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay ! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who loves the peaceful country ! We were lucky enough to enjoy the fire pit the first night while using the grill to make dinner. Leo has the house stocked with anything you might forget and plenty of bath towels! The second night we had a bad storm come through and tree branches down in driveway, he was quick to come over and clear the driveway for us! I would definitely stay here again if the property is available!

Gorgeous & Spacious Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

A crew of former college friends all converged on Nebraska for a wedding and it was so wonderful to all share a house together. This home is a beautiful converted barn house, spacious and clean and bright, tucked into the bluffs just outside Omaha. There is a lovely trail to a small creek, plenty of space for bocce and lawn games, and a fire pit made for memories (though it was so windy this weekend we didn't get to partake). Leo was fantastic and quick to respond to questions. We had a great time!

We had an amazing time at this property. We actually were in Omaha for the Olympic Trials. We had a lot of down time between prelims and finals, therefore we came back to the house and enjoyed games outside as a family together. Plus when we would get back from finals we were all excited. Most nights we played cards at the large dinning table, until late into the night. Leo welcomed us upon arrival and showed us around and said if we needed anything to call. Everything was perfect throughout our stay, therefore there was not need to contact Leo.
