Our house is being restored with respect for it's historic significance to the College Hill District, Burlington & Missouri Railroad and Saline County. Frank Stephens built this home in 1883. He was the founder of Crete Nuseries which populated the county with trees. The house has served many families and many purposes in nearly 140 years. We are happy to share a piece of that history with our guests!

Crete, Nebraska, United States

Our home sits on a corner lot across from Doane University. It was one of the first two homes on the street, built in 1883. It has been painstakingly restored with respect for it's contributing history to the community. (Some elements are still in progress.)

Evenings are quiet and a good time for sitting on the front porch and watching the neighbors walk by. In the fall you are close enough to campus that you can hear the high school or Doane University football games on the weekend. The community of Crete is welcoming and friendly!

Crete has a variety of diverse restaraunt options. Most food establishments close at 8 pm. Fast food restaurants are typically open until 10. We are a 14 mile drive to shopping and restaraunts in SW Lincoln as well as the Husker stadium shuttle on game weekends. We provide you with a list of seasonal activities upon your arrival. (Some annual activities are postponed/cancelled during the CoVid pandemic.) Please let us know what activities may be of interest to you and we can offer local insight.

Whether you are looking for an off the path retreat, a place to reside while on university business or a comfortable and affordable alternative to hotels in Lincoln, we welcome you and and want to make your stay a wonderful experience!
