My wife and I cannot say enough about the Atwood Bed and Breakfast. First of all, the mansion is huge and the owners are very friendly and courteous. We entered and were told my Larry that all the food and drinks in the kitchen were open for the taking. A popcorn machine and fruit was available along with chocolate cake.... More

Exceeded any expectations i had....we were treated respectfully and graciously while being surrounded by luxury. Tons of DVDs, candy, drinks available everywhere n the house. We immediately relaxed here. The owners are quiet, knowledgable and caring.

Cookies and brownies with an open invitation to "raid the fridge" at any time. A truly magnificent home with very spacious rooms and all the privacy you could ask for. And breakfast as early as 7 or as late as 11, served in 3 courses! Super convenient to the state capital building (highly recommend the tour!). A great place to... More

My wife and I stayed here for our one year wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Carriage House. When we got to the B&B, Larry showed us around the main house, then carried our luggage to the Carriage House to show us around there. Waiting on the table for us were two pieces of home backed cake (to die for...so... More

Larry is a gracious host. Ruth is so sweet. It was awesome hanging around the house, talking to the grandkids. Our room was amazing. Both were helpful with recommendations, maps, etc. The food included one key ingredient--love. It was clear with every bite that Larry likes what he does. They were truly gracious hosts.

Larry and Ruth have created an amazing oasis of relaxation and ambiance. My sister and I stayed there two nights for some "no kids, no hubby" time, and it was PERFECT! The attention to detail was incredible, down to the little extra touches with our breakfast. If you want a great B&B in Lincoln - this is the one you... More

Stayed there on our east -west journey and enjoyed it so much we booked in for the west- east return a week later. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Larry, our host, and nearly everything you could want was "inclusive". Dishes of cake, tasty biscuits (cookies), cold drinks from the fridge, hot drinks, fresh coffee, more types of... More

Stayed here for two nights for our honeymoon. We were quoted a price and it was two hundred dollars more than what we were told! Of course we didn't pay until after and if we would have known the true price than we never would have stayed. As I'm counting out my money the owner was saying out loud were... More

Amenities, Amazing, Attentive & Awesome Breakfasts all equal Atwood B&B. We have stayed at many B&B in work activities and pleasure, but Atwood B&B exceeds expectations for all the "A"'s listed and more. Larry and Ruth are wonderful host and hostess, their home became our home in a short time. The rooms are spacious and very clean and well equipped... More

Ruth and Larry have created an incredible oasis for weary travelers, and a unique experience for anyone who just needs to "get away" for any reason. The special touches from the room, the decorating, the extra care given to detail are incredible! Last but not least, the breakfast is just incredible - WOW!!!! I am an accomplished cook, but the...
