Private parking & property is located just off a blacktop road a little over one mile from the interstate. Our son lives in a shop/house and does share a driveway with the cabin but you have your own parking and own privacy. I am just a message away if any questions or problems arise I can be there within 15-20 minutes. I prefer message through the ap for communications as we farm and run a feedlot as well so many times I’m working in a noisy area! Our oldest son will soon live just across the driveway so he will be close if any concerns arise. This is a quiet, family friendly neighborhood out in the fresh country air right next to the river. Private area less then 2 miles from I80 & just minutes from Wood River, Grand Island, Hastings & Kearney! The cabin is located near the Crane Nature Center and just a short drive to many events such as Husker Harvest Days, The Nebraska State Fair, State trap shooting, Island Oasis Waterpark, Wood River Waterpark, The Big Apple Fun Center, Pete’s Safari Zoo, Fonner Park Horse Racing, Aksarben Stock Show, The Ag Expo, Cattleman’s classic, Stuhr Museum, the Archway Museum, Hastings Museum & planetarium, The children’s museum in Grand Island & Hastings, Spring City, & the Wood River golf course are just miles away as well. The cabin is also conveniently located just a mile from a truck stop that offers many services (including a subway) and food as well as a few miles from a small town grocery store & bar/family friendly eating establishment that has lunch & nightly specials. Guests have an area where they have their own private river access & yard/patio area. A larger area of the property can be hiked/explored but is shared with our son who resides across the driveway. This is rural so traffic and parking is not an issue however it is only a little over one mile from I80 via a blacktop road so very convenient! Please note that we have low cleaning fees. In exchange we ask that renters tidy up after themselves to ensure we keep the place nice! Please wash your dishes, bag trash up, & pull sheets off beds used and put by the washer & dryer before checkout. (If you choose to pay a higher fee instead please contact us & we can arrange for full service cleaning. We try to make this an option!) Please also note our rates are based upon the number of guests staying so we require the reservation to include ALL guests who will be visiting as well as signed waivers (one per family). If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask! This cabin is located near the Crane Trust Nature & visitor center as well as just miles from Husker Harvest days, the Nebraska state fair, Fonner park, state trap shooting, & many other activities happening in the tri-cities area of Nebraska. The Sand hill Cranes visit this area & can be seen right outside the cabin at certain times of year (especially Feb, March, April). Other wildlife such as turkeys and deer also frequently visit! You can enjoy sitting in the sand on the banks of the river or kayaking, swimming or fishing depending on river levels. We do host hunters as well & can offer hunting packages for additional daily costs which includes more acres to hunt in addition to your nightly stay but Hunters must contact owner before booking. Another amenity we offer for an additional cost is meal packages of our home raised beef and farm fresh eggs. Ask for further details if interested. No pets allowed indoors without permission. Please message me for details. This is a smoke & drug free residence. ABSOLUTELY no illegal drugs will be tolerated and no smoking in or near the cabin. The residence is also protected by outdoor security cameras for the safety of our guests. (Also our son does reside near if any concerns arise either he or I will be there within minutes to help!)
