A Fun Place to Stay

We had a great time and met some very interesting people. Bruce and Maureen could not have been nicer or more helpful.

Very relaxing

I would stay there again, and recommend it to anyone. It was a beautiful area, and quiet in the evening. The main house is quite lovely.

Beautiful hideaway in the countryside

5 on August 18, 2017

A beautiful property in the countryside, with several trails and a lake to explore. I reserved one room but ended up having the entire house to myself because I was the only guest. Maureen gave me a very warm welcome and prepared a delicious breakfast the next morning, including a cinnamon roll for on the way. I enjoyed relaxing on the swing in the yard and on the front porch. And while it is a very quiet and peaceful place in the middle of the fields, it is only a 20 min drive from downtown Lincoln.

Family Reunion On A Farm

4.0 on August 07, 2017

August 4-5, 2017 This was a perfect place for our family gathering on Friday (from Colorado, Wisconsin, Illinois and Nebraska) and for our Family Reunion of 51 people on Saturday in the Barn. The Innkeepers are super friendly and made our family feel so welcome. We occupied the entire Lodge and the Leavitt House. The Breakfasts were great...Maureen's cinnamon rolls were a big hit! Highly recommend this B & B. George & Beverly

Wonderful place for a personal retreat!

5 on August 05, 2017

Spent two evenings and a day at the Prairie Creek Inn Bed and Breakfast for a personal retreat. Could not have asked for a more perfect place! In addition to Bruce and Maureen being lovely people, the setting is beautiful and breakfasts were delicious. I spent much time sitting in a comfortable lawn chair in the shade beside the lake, and walked the paths. Hope to return by myself as well as with family in the future. Thank you Maureen and Bruce. Prairie Creek Inn is truly a special place. :) Sherry Jones

Weekend get-away

4.6 on July 23, 2017

I was attending a conference in Omaha. We decided to go out to Nebraska a couple of days early for a little get-away. Prairie Creek Inn offers a country setting with all the modern amenities. Breakfast was wonderful both mornings. If our travels ever take us back to the Omaha area we will definitely stay here again.

Good little get away!

4.6 on May 16, 2017

Very beautiful place, Bruce is a great guy, and they take care of you. Couple spots I thought could've used some dusting/additional cleaning, but for the most part it was very clean and the beds were phenomenal! Breakfast was good - great cinnamon rolls, but gravy was too watery. If they could thicken this up and get the corners of the room a little better, this would get all Outstanding reviews! I don't want to down play it though - we're from Lincoln and needed a little get away from kiddos and every day life. Great place to refresh and would HIGHLY recommend it! Thank you!!

Rooms were clean

4.0 on March 28, 2017

Rooms were very neat and clean. TV not working in the sitting room however and the volume downstairs on the big TV not working. We were the only guests in the house and still had to pay for a private bathroom. The breakfast was really good in the morning and Bruce and his wife are very nice people. Overall I would rate the experience at a 7!
