Our second stay at the Crystal Key Inn is for good reason; it is a wonderful B&B! Earl and Diane make it so. They are warm and inviting (like family)! They have decorated this beautiful home and made it so comfortable. You will not lack for anything down to the smallest detail. And, to top it off, their breakfasts are... More

A real treasure in northeast Nebraska. This beautiful home is beautifully decorated. Earl and Diane are gracious hosts. We had breakfast with 5 other guests in the morning and enjoyed the family feel and great company. The pancakes with fresh picked cherries and sausage were wonderful with the elegant table setting.

We enjoyed the historic home and the quiet small town atmosphere.The well appointed room was very comfortable and clean and the breakfast was excellent. Earl and Diane are very gracious, friendly hosts. When we can work it into our travel plans we will... More

I had business in Madison, NE and all rooms in Norfolk were full. I am so glad because it led me to the Crystal Key Inn, a quiet, comfortable and elegant Inn with owners that truly embrace hospitality. A beautiful home with an interesting story that the gracious inn keepers are happy to tell. Very comfortable and exceptionally clean. I... More

We really enjoyed our visit! The small town charm was just what we needed. The room was spacious, the owners made us feel right at home and the breakfast, where we really enjoyed visiting with the other guests, was amazing!! We walked into town for a steak dinner and enjoyed our evening taking in the peaceful surroundings, sitting on the... More

The hosts are very hospitable and know how to make you feel at home. We have stayed here three times and it was excellent each time. A good place to relax and unwind. We spent a little time getting... More

Just a few rooms - including one on the first floor for people who don't like to climb stairs. One on the top would be fun for people with kids as has turret area.Nice hot shower, comfortable bed, pitcher of ice water... More

A lovely stay in a small town complete with a sand green golf course. This is where you go to relax, read, and rest. Awesome food with wonderful innkeepers. We enjoyed our stay very, very much and look forward to a return visit.

As a business traveler, this location is perfect. When I'm done with business in the Norfolk area and want to get started on the road back to Omaha, I use the Crystal Key Inn as my stopping place for the night. The hosts are so personable, the house so tastefully done and sparkling, and the breakfasts always so great, that... More

Helen and I stayed with Earl and Dianne Zeller at the Crystal Key Inn this past weekend. The countryside was bland, dry, and still screaming for spring, but our stay was divine. It is truly God's country, and Newman Grove was a fine choice for a B & B. Northeast Nebraska is a true treasure waiting to be picked, and... More
