Oft’s Bed & Breakfast is located in the small farm community of Bennington located a few miles northwest of Omaha, Nebraska. The home is on the National Register of Historic Places and received the "Hidden Treasure 2012" award from Heritage Nebraska. The B&B features two upstream bedrooms, both with private baths in a classical Queen Anne house built in 1910. Enjoy beverages and home cooked snacks during your stay and a wonderful breakfast in the morning. During warm weather, quests often choose to enjoy a book, visit or simply watch the goldfish in the lily pond from the wrap-around porch or their balcony. Located only minutes from downtown Omaha, the home offers a relaxing setting in a historical home.

Home away from home!

5 on September 02, 2013

Where do I begin? Linda and Gordon are wonderful people. They have a beautiful home that has such much family history. It has been in Gordon's family for a hundred years and he has done such great work keeping it not only in that time frame but current. His breakfast's were delicious. They are both great company and gave us information on things to do in Omaha. Linda is a load of fun to play cards with! Overall they could not have made our girl away from home any more pleasant. I would recommend it to anyone traveling near the Omaha area!

After long days in the car, and staying at ho-hum motels, I was so happy to arrive at Oft's Bead & Breakfast, and discovering that it lead up to its reputation. A friend had recommended it to me, and she was right. The town, my room, Gordon and Linda, the food, the was top notch. I couldn't be happier with my experience.

Happy Anniversary 35 Years

We had a wonderful stay. Gordon and Linda are great hosts. Clean and comfortable. Had fresh flowers, thick plush towels, great smelling sheets, loved the history wall, danced to the jukebox. The breakfast was delicious. A well restored 1900's home. 5 stars plus with an atmosphere second to none. You will not be disappointed. A must stay!!!!! S and C from Iowa

Wonderful and hospitable stay! Gourmet breakfast is delicious!

Linda and Gordon are wonderful hosts. We stayed on 1/6/13 and had a wonderful stay. The home is a historical turn of the century home full of rich history and character. We stayed in the larger room which had a private bathroom. The other room available has an unattached private bathroom down the hallway. That bathroom has a claw foot tub and older pull-chain toilet. (Very neat!) We awoke in the morning to a fresh pot of coffee and a deliciously prepared breakfast. It was a great way to spend our 9 year anniversary. Thank you for a fabulous stay!
