About Stephen

You may have guessed the picture isn't of me. It is the age our twins were when we purchased this vacation home. They were doing their part to get things ready. Now we have a family of 6 so lots to do in our household. We do live in the area and have a maintenance supervisor should you need to get a hold of myself or need other assistance.

Stephen purchased this house in 2007

Why Stephen chose East Omaha

We love lake activities and full service lakes close to Omaha just don't exist. So when we found this property at a reasonable value on a full service lake we had to snatch it up.

What makes this house unique

We hope that you are able to enjoy all the benefits of a lake property while still being so close to downtown Omaha, the world's best zoo, CenturyLink Center, TD Ameritrade ballpark, the airport and so much more. It is truly a little piece of paradise.

Great location for a multi-generational family event, as long as handicap accessibility is not neede

  • 4 of 5

Great location for a multi-generational family event, as long as handicap accessibility is not needed. The atmosphere is great for a family gathering, much preferred it to a hotel. Cleanliness is important to our family and we viewed the home as clean.

Parking for 1 extended cab and 2 regular size vehicles. RV parking only if smaller RV. Lower level includes dry bar and large social gathering space. Great view of lake! Bedroom with two queen beds and bunk bed (single & full mattresses). Very comfortable beds throughout the house. Lower level bedroom walk-in closet includes extra towels and blankets. Small community bathroom has standing shower w/quality shower head. Toilet difficult to access for larger individuals and those with limited mobility. Lower level only has entrance from parking area, no direct access to lake. Laundry room below steps.

Upper level includes two queen bed bedrooms of unequal size, a bathroom with bathtub, large social area that includes dining table for at least 8, living area, and kitchen set up for multiple cooks. Seating for 5 at kitchen counter. Several drip coffee makers and one large French press. Beautiful upper level cedar deck with charcoal grill, table, and wicker chairs and access to lake front. Crib needs assembled. Iron an ironing boards available in closets.

Overall clean interior in need of minor maintenance. Couches worn, but clean and comfortable. It appears owner is taking on one remodel project at a time, starting with the most expensive items.

Directions to playground – walk out back door to sidewalk. Turn left on sidewalk and follow it until you come to an intersection of sidewalks. Turn right at the intersection and walk straight until you come to playground – one street to cross.

Really nice area to walk, friendly neighbors. Drive in may cause questioning of safety of neighborhood, but neighborhood itself is good.

Recommend eating at or ordering pizza from Sgt. Peffer's Pizza in the area. Also, read about the history of neighborhood before you arrive - it will give you a greater appreciation of this community.

The house is huge!! Plenty of space for a lot of people. Everything was orderly.

  • 5 of 5

The surrounding neighborhood took me a little off guard since there are some really run down houses around this one. But there weren’t any problems with them.

Plenty of sleep space! Although most of the beds were extremely firm and hurt my back. Would have liked more blankets and pillows as well.

We didn’t use any of the kitchen amenities although every option was available! Would have liked complementary coffee however.

Overall it was a great experience. Would stay here again. Do hope that someone does something with the surrounding homes.
