Shepherds' Inn B&B

The Shepherds' Inn house was built in 1919, thus it is 102 yrs old this year and we are celebrating, come join us.  Don's grandfather built the house and he was born there in 1940.  The house was decorated in Victorian decor, complete with antiques in 1996 when we opened it as a Bed & Breakfast.  

A tree lined drive leads to the 1 1/2 story house nestled on a tree covered hill.  Guests approaching the house see a front porch with table and chairs awaiting someone to sit and enjoy the quiet countryside.  Through the front door is the elegantly decorated parlor complimented with  antique furniture.
We have recently added fine art paintings by Itzchak Tarkay and Peter Nixon which compliments the Victorian decor.
Modern conveniences such as full package satellite TV,VCR and DVD are there for all to  enjoyment.  The dining room is where a candlelit  gourmet breakfast is elegantly served using linen napkins on a lace covered table, heirloom silverware and attractive dinnerware. We are a true bed & breakfast where you do not have to cook or clean up the kitchen after breakfast.  Breakfast is always complimentary and served with a smile.   In the corner of the room our stand-in butler "Mario" holds snacks during the evening hours.  Hot and cold beverages are available 24/7.  A 1913 pump organ is in the room to be played by those so talented or a 1913 Victrola complete with antique records.

There are 3 guest bedrooms in the home, all with queen beds and private bathrooms.  Our guests rave about our new luxurious sheets, stating they haven't ever slept on sheets that nice. There is a refrigerator in each room and a TV in most. Ironing boards, irons and luxurious robes are furnished as well as hair dryers.  The Cherub Elegance is located on main floor.  The bed is a birds-eye maple high back bed with ornate spoon carvings.  An adjoining room is perfect to watch TV or add another person on the love seat which makes into a twin bed. A refrigerator is there for the guests use.

There are two bedrooms on second floor.  The Victorian Rose is decorated in burgundy and hunter green.  Lace and roses are throughout.  The sunny south exposure makes this a very romantic room.  The queen sized spool bed was handmade in Pennsylvania in 1840.  A pigeon hole desk serves as a writing desk or make-up table with a light above and holds a flat screen tv.  A refrigerator is in the room to store cold items. Newlyweds  can enjoy a private breakfast served in this room Adjoining is  a large bathroom with a claw foot tub surrounded by lace curtains and also has a free standing corner shower. A towel warmer sits by the shower ready to supply an "out of the dryer" feeling towel.  How luxurious!!!

The second bedroom  on 2nd floor is named Moonlight & Roses.  The high backed oak bed is queen size.  The private bathroom has a sky light where the moonlight can shine in.  How romantic is that?  All beds have high thread count luxurious linens and soft fluffy towels.  Fluffy robes are also available. Standing close by is a towel warmer providing towels that feel like they just came out of the dryer.  Can't get better than that.
A refrigerator is in the room for guests convenience.

A gift shop is on premises where the wonderful moisturizing Merino brand skin products are sold, only distributor in NE. They have been proven to help a variety of skin issues.  Homemade jellies from locally harvested fruits are made & served here.  Many guests have viewed the constellations for the first time in their lives from the outdoor hot tub.  They say they can't see stars from their city homes with bright street lights.  An awesome experience for many.  On occasion, one might hear a howling coyote in the distance.  Early morning hot tub users might hear roosters crowing in the distance, a rarity these days.
Our butterfly garden was certified 5 yrs ago and we observe more species every year including monarchs.
A hiking  trail is available for those who want to walk.  The view is awesome from the top of the hill, looking down on the B&B and surrounding countryside.  A bench sits atop the hill to rest and enjoy the view.

The Shepherds' Inn is a member in good standing of the NABB, Nebraska Association of Bed & Breakfasts having been inspected and approved.  Corporate and government rate discounts are available to the business traveler.  The Inn is smoke and pet free.  Alcohol in moderation is permitted.

The Shepherds' Inn offers a quiet escape tucked away in the heart of the country.  Our goal is to make you our guests feel pampered.  Please consider us your home away from home.  We will exceed your expectations.

Cancellation Policy

We are just a small 3 bedroom B&B where no shows and late cancellations affect us significantly.  We are off the beaten path so do not have last minute drive in's.  If a reservation is cancelled within  2 weeks of the reservation, you will be charged a $25 cancellation fee. If it is within a week and I cannot rebook the room/rooms, you will be expected to pay for the room.  If it is rebooked, there is no charge.  Thank You.
