Welcome to the Leshara Lodge! Located less than 30 minutes from Omaha, we offer a quiet getaway from the noise of the city. Our guest house is secluded in the woods and located on body of water literally just out the front door. The Platte River is less than a half mile walk. A fisherman and bird-watchers dream - actually, a dream for anyone who loves nature!

The space
Our guest house was fully remodeled in 2019. At 900 sqft, this studio-style home is the perfect size for couples or a family with two kids (there are two queen beds and a full sized air mattress available). You'll have access to a private gas grill, and the kitchenette comes supplied with a full sized refrigerator, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, hotplate with pans, electric skillet, glasses, plates and utensils. While we don't supply a full breakfast, tea, coffee and a coffee maker are furnished - there is nothing better out here than having a hot cup outside in the morning.

For extra security, there is a gate you'll have to enter to gain access to the guest house. The guest code will be given to you before you arrive at the property. In addition, there are security camera's around the property. Please note, there are no camera's inside the guest house itself.

We love the outdoors and want to share it with you! With your stay you'll have full access to fishing (in three different bodies of water - the warm water slough located right outside the guest house; in the Platte River, which is a quick 10 minute walk; or in a pond located right next to the river), canoeing, walking in nature, and the Platte River (for lounging on a sandbar or casting a line!). Our guest house is located on 50+ acres, so there is plenty of room to roam!

Enjoy wildlife?? Here are just *some* of our regular visitors: deer, turkey, mink, fox, Canadian Geese, Baltimore Orioles, Bald Eagles, hummingbirds, and many other variety of birds. In January 2021 two male Percheron Horses joined the property. Bear and Rocky are easy to see as you walk to the river and love saying hello to people. You're more than welcome to pet them, as long as you stay on your side of the fence. :)

Be sure to bring your fishing poles and gear! Expect to catch catfish, bass, carp, crappie, or the occasional walleye. Northern Pike make rare appearances! Bow-fishing is another popular activity out here.

All fish you catch can be kept and cleaned, with the exception of those caught at the pond; which is catch and release only.

*Please note, it is also recommended you bring life jackets if you plan to get in the Platte River*

Where you’ll be

Leshara, Nebraska, United States

Leshara is a unique little village. Again, far enough away from city life (just 30 minutes from Omaha) but lots to do close by. The town of Valley is 5 minutes away, and offers all you'd need in the way of groceries, gas, necessities and dining. There are also several boutiques for fun shopping.

Woodcliff Lake is just 10 minutes down the road. If you want to take the night off from grilling, we highly recommend one of their three bar/restaurants - all on the water.

If you want any specifics on nearby restaurants, please just ask. We consider ourselves regulars of many places close by.

Hello! My name is Jennifer Mellor. My husband and I enjoy all things outdoor related: fishing, bird watching, playing in the river, ATV riding...you name it. We look forward to sharing our little bit of Heaven with you and your family!

During your stay

Our home is the only other house on the immediate property. While we are generally available to our guests, we know privacy is key and will 100% grant you that - unless, of course, you have questions or want any guidance to the property; then we'll be happy to help!

We'll take the opportunity here to say that cleanliness is a hugely high priority of ours, especially during this time. While we've always strived to keep our guest house sparkling clean, we are taking extra precautions - for our guests and ourselves - to ensure the property is properly sanitized in-between guest visits.
