I would give Kathleen, her family and her home the highest rating possible - if that's a 5 out of 5, the rating would have to be a 6. Her home is beautiful and welcoming. Its quiet and private. Kathleen and her husband greeted us as we arrived and was ready to make us feel welcome even when my husband and I arrived at different times. The bed was very comfortable which is important when you are away from home. There was a coffee bar stocked with all kinds of coffees and teas. Breakfast was great and included home baked rolls! Need I say more? Kathleen has truly tried to think of everything possible to make our stay comfortable. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when in the Wausa vicinity.
Kathleen & her husband were kind enough to wait up even though I arrived a couple hours later than expected. The atmosphere in their home is very welcoming. Also, Kathleen provided a pleasant (though unexpected!) breakfast before I left the following morning. The lower level of their house has been configured for guest usage and includes a private bath, den and rec room. Overall: very clean & comfy. I would definitely stay again if I go through that area.
Heads up that this is a rural location. I did not have (AT&T) cell coverage for the last hour or two and that threw a glitch in communicating travel delays or getting extra directions. Also, beware that a few of the nearby streets are unpaved. Watch that your GPS doesn't send you down one. (All the major roads to the house are paved, but a few of the side/cross streets are not.)
This place is a true gem. Curt and Kathy are fabulous hosts - very warm and accommodating. They made sure we had everything we needed, and were very easy to visit with. My mother and I were heading from Kansas to Minnesota, and this was a perfect stopping place. We had plenty of room, the bed was comfy, and I loved the tiled shower. Kathy's breakfast was superb, and we enjoyed seeing her beautiful gardens and hearing familiar farm sounds. They are truly living the country lifestyle that so many people only dream of. Because of this Airbnb experience, I never want to stay in a hotel again! We will be back!
We had a great time staying with Kathleen and Curt. They were lovely hostz and made us feel very welcome. Five stars all the way! Thank you for your hospitality.
Lovely place! Welcoming and cozy! Enjoyed the beautiful gardens and slept like a rock! Thank You also for accommodating my Dad's needs as well, he enjoyed playing the piano!
For good reason, Curt and Kathy were not able to be there when we arrived, but they made sure that a neighbor was there to show us around and she did a great job. Homemade cookies were left for us as well as other snacks and the message to use the kitchen for whatever we needed. We talked after they arrived home and they were so friendly and accommodating ensuring that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The gardens are beautiful and interesting. Kathy taught us a few things about gardening after a delicious homemade breakfast. We slept well and had an enjoyable time.
Kathy and Curt were absolutely wonderful. We were treated as if we were family. This is a wonderful farm outside of town. They welcomed us with pie & ice cream the night we arrived and great farm breakfast both mornings. Curt welcomed us to join him in the morning moving cows from one pasture to another. It was great fun. The living space is large and comfortable, we enjoyed the shower. They invited us to join them for dinner our second night and we spent a wonderful evening out on the deck afterwards sharing stories and songs, watching the moon come up and the fireflies. We would have stayed for a week if we had time.
I requested this late in the day (same day) and Kathleen and Curt graciously accepted this.
We were greeted with cookies and ice cream. Them rooms were clean and roomy. There was a fabulous coffee grotto in our living space and we had access to their kitchen too.
Although Kathleen was had something else scheduled that morning, by the time we got up she'd made us bacon and put out the pancake batter for us not to mention she'd set the table and made juice. All of this was way beyond what I'd expected. We shared dinner with them that night and they told us about the local attractions but since it is a working farm, my kids really didn't want to leave and do anything but investigate all the farm. Curt took time to explain some farm life to my city kids, that was pretty cool. I highly recommend them and the accommodations.
Kathy and Curt are the sweetest people! They are so very accommodating. The basement is large and comfortable. We had access to the washer and dryer and since we travel on business most of the time that was a huge plus. Although Kathy has to be at work early she still got up EARLY and made us an amazing breakfast every morning! SO SWEET AND THOUGHTFUL! Their home and gardens are so beautiful and RELAXING. There were snacks in a basket and a keurig coffee maker in the basement...PERFECT....wish we could have stayed longer! We hope we have the opportunity to stay with them again!
Fantastic experience! We are recommending our friends make a small detour when they head west or southwest and stop in with the Hennings. Get off the freeways and experience true Plains hospitality. The driving was great...good roads, less traffic, and 60 mph speed limits....much more relaxing than semi traffic on I-35! Rural Nebraska is truly worth the experience. Their home is on a paved road ...just a few miles off US 81 and easily assessed.
What wonderful hosts! We have had lots of great airbnb hosts but Kathleen and her husband are tops! We were treated like old family friends.....homemade apple pie and ice cream when we arrived and home cooked breakfasts each morning. We spent the whole evening visiting! It was so great we decided to come back by for a repeat visit on our way home!
The photos are completely accurate & the quarters were very comfortable. They are very private if you wish and were nice and cool when we were there on a warm, humid evening. I am sure they would be toasty in the colder months with the living room fireplace.
Kathleen's garden is wonderful and we spent time sitting out in the back in the shade enjoying the warm spring weather. We brought supper home and enjoyed it in the backyard the second day we were there. I also enjoyed walking up and down the road and taking photos of the neighbor's cattle, the birds (swallows, red winged blackbirds, sparrows, etc), cottonwood trees, and the farmyards. Nebraska's rolling hills and farmlands are beautiful.
Our stay made a long road trip very enjoyable and relaxing! I would definitely recommend anyone stop for a visit & will return any time we are in the area. Life in the Plains states is more like life used to be....more laid back & down to earth.
It was an absolute pleasure to have Kathleen and her wonderful family stay in my apartment. They are such lovely people and demonstrated the upmost respect for my place. They are welcome back anytime!!! 10/10 guests.
