When life is just too busy, you need a place to reclaim your boundaries, recover from the constancy and demands of life, and settle in to be truly restored. In addition to the historic Leavitt House, Cottage House, and Lakeside Cabin, you will find a lake, prairie, trails, creek, and 100 acres of privacy. We welcome you for a romantic overnight stay, a wedding, group meeting, reunion, or birthday party. You can even rent out the entire house (sleeps 16)! Our 6 bedrooms are each uniquely decorated, and reflect the character and charm of the historic house and of the farm setting. Direct access to the beauty and tranquility of God's creation. Wildlife, the freshness of nature, and the quiet solitude of brilliant sunrises and Golden Sunsets offer you a bountiful harvest of memories.
Offers our best view of the 3 acre native prairie just outside the front yard. This field has never had a plow put to it, and yields some of the most spectacular bouquets of native flowers in the area. Also has a view of the farm's original gambrel roof barn, field, and woods. The king bed is our finest sleeping mattress. Original wood floors and beautiful woodwork. Optional private bath...whirlpool tub, black marble tile surround.
Are you a writer, composer, or dreamer? This is the premier private place for you. You will have an unlimited view of the 3 acre prairie, converging woods, field, and skyline. Here you will find the solitude and rest you need to re-create or organize your life. Features a full-size antique walnut bed and furniture and includes sofa sleeper for an additional 2 guests. Adjacent living room and bath with claw-foot tub and separate tiled shower.
In a secluded, quiet corner, you will be enlightened by the history and process of moving 'this old Leavitt House' and its assimilation into the Francke Farm. Its simple elegance (including a king-sized slightly firm mattress) is a theme for the Prairie Creek Inn. The close-up view of the facility's woods—walnut, ash, hackberry, and pine, is enveloping and comforting.
The theme of the cedars is just that—aromatic red cedar. The cedar bed is the creation of Bruce Stahr for Maureen's wedding gift—and is a king Select Comfort; beams above and trim in the cathedral ceiling are also made of cedar. Includes sofa sleeper for an additional 2 guests. A stunning private view of the acreage woods and even a peek of the lake are available when you're not gazing at the stars or the brilliant sunrise the next morning!
This room offers a feel for what the early settlers in the area may have experienced—queen bed, rocking chair, pedal sewing machine, and humpback trunk. This room also has a great secluded view of the Francke Gardens. Private bath with 6-foot claw-foot antique tub/shower available.
Named after the working farm that has become Prairie Creek Inn, this room offers a great overall view of the facility: Brilliant sunsets, view of the side yard and (future) gazebo, lilacs, garden, prairie, and a beautiful night sky. Queen-sized bed and comfortable accommodations will provide a memorable country experience.
Main floor suite includes spacious bedroom, private bath with corner jacuzzi tub/shower, and private covered porch for viewing spectacular sunsets and stunning star-filled night skies. You also have access to the living room, wood stove, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and extra bathroom. A sofa sleeper allows you the option of 4 total guests. Aunt Laura, who lived here for decades, never had it so nice!
Second floor suite includes 2 spacious bedrooms, private bath, and your own huge balcony. This suite is accessed by awesome original steep radius staircase or easier outside stair access via balcony. Rooms are very cozy with knee-walls and angled ceilings. Shared access includes living room, wood stove, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and extra bathroom.

This was a surprise weekend trip for me arranged by my love. Everything about this weekend was wonderful. Bruce and Maureen were very accommodating as we arrived late in the evening on Friday and had an early morning planned for Saturday. However, when we arrived back mid-morning, Maureen served us a delicious breakfast. The rooms were beautifully decorated, some provided the story of the house itself. We really enjoyed the quiet weekend in the country at Prairie Creek Inn. This is a must stay B&B. We can't wait until our next visit. Thank you very much Bruce and Maureen for your hospitality and a weekend we will never forget! S & N - Grand Island, NE

My wife and I came here for the first time for Valentines day, 4 days after our anniversary the year they opened. We have since become good friends with Bruce and Maureen and enjoy their hospitality and accommodations. We have been blessed to stay with them many times now and have always been blessed by the time away from the daily hustle and bustle. We look forward to many more visits and continued friendship! We highly recommend Prairie Creek Inn Bed and Breakfast!

This was a holiday gathering for 11 of us from an organization. The innkeepers were very wam and welcoming for our tea and tour. They even allowed us to bring in our own soups and enjoy our gift sharing in their beautiful home! I would highly recommend this very informative and heart warming experience for anyone.

We had a shopping day with 9 friends! We loved the cabin where we stayed. Bruce was so accommodating from the time we booked the trip through to the facility tour after breakfast. We rented the whole cabin...it was dang near brand new! The beds were comfortable and both gas fireplaces were on when we got there! There happened to be a full moon and of course we sat under it looking at the lake to the east. And then again in the morning with sun...up....beautiful!

Our hosts were very welcoming, their home was comfortable and the grounds quiet. We were there on a night when the skies were clear and the fireflies were out, on the last night of a 2 week roadtrip. Very relaxing before the last days drive home. It is family friendly and we would like to return.

An historic Lincoln Home, lots of farm acreage for walks, a lake view, a nice warm bed and hot breakfast. Great hosts. What more could anyone ask to get away from it all?

My husband and I stayed one night in the Homestead Room. We enjoyed the ambiance of the room as well as the property and the delicious breakfast made by Bruce. Although we didn't get the chance to meet Maureen we were intrigued by their story. We enjoyed a nice dinner in Lincoln. The next morning we enjoyed exploring the grounds. We highly recommend the Prairie Creek Inn! -Ted & Anne Atwood

While planning to visit our daughter at college, my husband and I decided to try something different. We had recently stayed at different hotels on each visit with the hopes of finding one that we liked and would return to when we came back to Lincoln. Even though the Inn was farther out, we decided that it would be nice to stay at a B&B and enjoy a little peace & quiet during our downtime. That was the BEST decision we've ever made. When we arrived on Friday night, Maureen & Bruce met us at the front door. They instantly made us feel right at home. It was kind of a cool, breezy evening and the smell of the wood-burning fireplace was very welcoming when we walked into the foyer. After a quick tour of the property and a brief introduction to a couple of the other residents (Peanut Butter, the cat and Winston, the dog) we got settled into our room. In the morning we woke to the sound of birds in the trees outside of our windows--no traffic and no noisy residents in the hallway/next door. After breakfast on Saturday morning, Winston, the dog escorted us down the trail to see the cabin that is currently under construction...we can't wait to see how it looks when it's finished. Throughout our stay our hosts were most gracious and made us feel very comfortable in our "home away from home". The food was delicious (and filling), and our room was extremely comfortable. We particularly appreciated the electric blanket on a couple of very cool early spring nights--no cold sheets! Sunday evening we cuddled on the couch in front of the huge projection screen and enjoyed a DVD that we had brought with us. As our daughter was only a freshman this year, we're looking forward to returning to see Bruce & Maureen over the next few years. We will DEFINITELY recommend the Prairie Creek Inn to all of our friends/family who might be traveling in the Lincoln area. ~B. & B. in Wyoming

We stayed overnight in the Prairie View Room for our 6th anniversary. It is a wonderful location-outside of the city limits but close enough to head in to Lincoln for a meal or other entertainment. We LOVED walking around the grounds-great lakeside trail and prairie path. Bruce and Maureen were very ammenable to a few particular needs and were very flexible with mealtime in the morning. The food, service, hospitality, and room were all excellent!
