Pretty yellow Victorian inn about 2 hours from Omaha. The innkeepers are friendly and make a delicious breakfast. 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

Stayed here recently while in town on business. There are no other lodging options in town. Was slightly pricey (I paid $119 for main floor large bedroom with private roomy bathroom and porch but upstairs rooms were charming and $99). I was happy to pay the price for the convenience of not having to stay 20-30 miles away in a... More

The Crystal Key Inn is charming in every way. The accommodations are lovely and we left so refreshed. We had a wonderful time. Earl and Diane are wonderful hosts. We highly recommend this B&B and will return as we have the opportunity. Norman and Stephanye, Omaha, NE

What a great B&B! I had the opportunity to stay with Diane and Earl at their B&B on a business trip. From the moment I walked in, my gracious hosts shared their passion for hospitality. The Crystal Key Inn is comfortable and the innkeepers are accommodating. We held a meeting in the dining room and needed projection equipment - Earl... More

We called Earl and Diane late in the afternoon seeking lodging for the night. They graciously accepted our reservation on very short notice. Our room was the wonderful "Garden View" room on the main floor. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We had a great nights sleep in the very comfortable king-size bed, and awoke to a delicious cornmeal... More

I fell in love with Crystal Key Inn as soon as I drove up and even more so as I entered and saw the beautiful and comfortable decorations. Earl and Diane made me feel welcome and provided for each of my needs. The breakfasts were amazing. The room was clean, homey and comfortable. Thanks for a good restful trip.
