About Mark Wilkins
My family and I live in Omaha, NE and have been vacationing and recreating in the Niobrara area for about twenty years now loving every minute of it. I retired from law enforcement a few years ago after my wife and I started a successful small business which I currently run. Both of us are native Nebraskan's and have lived here our entires lives. We strive to be a resource for your stay and are happy to assist in planning any activities.
Mark Wilkins purchased this Lodge in 2016
Why Mark Wilkins chose Niobrara
In 2016 we decided to build a cabin duplex to make our stays more comfortable and relaxing after our days having FUN! At the same time we wanted to encourage others to come to the area we love so much by providing top notch accommodations for them too. To realize that vision we built matching cabins in the form of a duplex, one side which we rent out and the other for our personal use on the intermittent weekends when we are up there. The advantage for our guests is they have a peaceful place to stay which mimics a home atmosphere. No noisy neighbors to deal with and amenities which ensure you get a good nights sleep and enjoy restful evenings. We spared no expense when building them and have routinely received compliments on how comfortable our beds, furniture and entire property is since completing the project in November of 2016.
What makes this Lodge unique
I might be a little biased but I have traveled extensively and the Niobrara area is full of good people, beautiful scenery and an abundance of public land for recreating. When you pair that with the slower paced peaceful atmosphere it is hard to beat and is truly one of Nebraska's best kept secrets. One of the things that makes the area so beautiful is the Missouri river which I highly recommend getting out on to experience the beauty up close. There are sandbars to recreate on, swimming holes, fishing to be had and wildlife to be seen. If our guests do not have a means to get out on the water we have a 20ft boat built for the shallow water of the river which we can use to provide guided day tours for additional fees. However these are limited so booking in advance is advisable. If you have your own watercraft which you want to keep indoors I have garage space available on the property for a reasonable up charge.

Very nice place to stay
We had a great stay at this cabin. It is great for accommodating a family and close to several area attractions. We came to visit Lewis and Clark lake and enjoyed the scenic drive from Niobrara.
Thanks Scott, I enjoyed having you and your family as guests
Excellent! Lovely furnishings and great location.
Great place to stay in the Niobrara area
We had a great stay in the Kinsmen Lodge in Niobrara. There aren't a lot of places to stay in the area, but I would definitely recommend this one. Everything is basically brand new as the building is either newly built or remodeled. The place is quiet and easy to get to (a block off the highway). The owner, Mark, was not on site, but quickly responded to my texts with any information that I needed. As far as places to rent go, this has to be the nicest one in the area. We weren't there for fishing or hunting, but it definitely would be close to all of that. We would stay here again.
Knox county Nebraska has long been a little known sportsman's paradise. Public hunting and fishing opportunities are plentiful as well as areas for water sports, hiking and wildlife viewing. The Missouri river, Niobrara river, Verdigre Creek, Bazile creek and nearby Lewis and Clark reservoir are what makes this area truly spectacular. Ashfall fossil beds is undoubtedly at the top of the list when it comes to nearby attractions that are a must see. Located 30 minutes away it is well worth the trip as there is no place like it in the world. The Ohiya Casino provides evening dining and entertainment as well as a very nice 18 hole golf course set among the beautiful hills and canyons characteristic of the area. Kayak and tube rentals are available to take a relaxing float trip via the Niobrara river. Swanson Farms provides an entertaining opportunity to view buffalo and elk on guided tours during the summer months as well. If hunting is your thing you will enjoy the opportunity to bag a turkey, deer, ducks, geese, grouse, quail and pheasants. On the fishing end of things excellent cat fishing awaits you on the Missouri river as well as large mouth and small mouth bass, crappie and walleye. For the enthusiast who needs a little help with activities guided services can be had for additional fees. However, advise is always free and we have plenty of it.
