Nestled in the hills just north of the Old Market area of Omaha, White Deer Retreat was just the kind of close to Des Moines get-away, for a couple of days respite, my husband and I were looking for after an intense Spring season. This beautiful property is close to a fun shopping, dining, and museum district, and away from city noise for quiet, birdsong mornings! We traveled easily in and out of the Old Market area, as well as into the Loess Hills for a scenic drive.
Our South exposure suite was lovely, with a view overlooking the Missouri Valley, and a rooftop balcony for enjoying the serenity of this woodland location. Our room and private bath were clean and nurturing, with snacks and cd collection, and suggestions for things to see and do in the area. We especially enjoyed a picnic lunch our first afternoon on beautiful and expansive grounds, just steps from walking paths and hiking trails, as we began to settle in, to a slower pace for a few days away from home.
Debra was a warm and welcoming host, and even sent us home with summer squash from her backyard garden! We highly recommend White Deer Retreat and look forward to another visit the next time we are in the Old Market area of Omaha!
Debra was very welcoming upon our arrival at her home. We arrived while they were eating dinner and I got a kick out of talking to Debra about how she had cooked the vegetables for dinner in the sun-oven. The home is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Omaha. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and her dogs were fun to play with. We enjoyed watching several area fireworks displays (we stayed on the 4th of July) from the deck off of our room. Sadly we were not there long enough to visit the park right behind Debra's property. Definitely recommend this property/host!
This house has it all: a short drive from the city and airport of Omaha, good quality and tastefully decorated room and bathroom, our own roof terrace with a view over the river, in a large garden with wildlife, and a forest with many hikes. A fabulous way to spend our last two days of vacation in Nebraska.
Debra and Richard are very friendly and helpful!
We arrived late as we were traveling with our friend who has terminal breast cancer having brought her along for our bucket list trip. Debra was there to warmly welcome us. She was an absolutely lovely hostess.
Her retreat is divine... It is serene and gorgeously decorated...
The photographs don't do this place justice... It is a destination... And was the perfect place to spiritually refuel after a grueling road trip. The enormous floor to ceiling windows allow you to wake up to a most beautiful serene landscape set in an idyllic view of classic Omaha.
Debra was a very caring and attentive hostess. We arrived much later than expected due to many delays caused by road construction, and she was nonetheless cheerful and willing to help us settle in. The bedroom is beautifully furnished with the most deliciously comfortable bed we've slept in for a long time. Falling into that bed after a long day of driving restored our energy. Perched above the city, the house sits on a beautiful rural property with a broad vista. Breakfast was delicious and beautiful in presentation. I hadn't expected a night in Omaha to be the highlight of a cross-country drive, but it was. Thank you Debra, for making our trek so much more pleasant than we expected.
