My husband and I started staying at the Cornerstone for our anniversary, and have gone back for several years ever since! We have stayed in every room, and love this charming Bed and Breakfast! The owners are a joy, and always make our stay special! Every year has been fantastic

The Cornerstone Mansion B&B is located in Omaha's old "Gold Coast" district, across the street from the huge and ostentatious Joslyn Castle. My wife and I stayed two nights on the third floor in the charming Charles Suite which has mahogany paneling on the walls and beamed ceiling. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. Although the room has a small... More

My wife and I are staying here currently and it has been a wonderful experience. Julie is a great host and makes some amazing treats. The Apple walnut French toast was fantastic. We stayed in two different rooms - the savannah and Charles suites. Both were unique and had some interesting history.

This place is really lovely, each room has charming little antique touches that make the stay really special and romantic. It is an old mansion, has kind of a victorian gothic feel, but quaint and cozy too. All of the furniture is beautiful, you can sit outside in the little garden or the study, at the piano or the downstairs... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Cornerstone B&B as we were in Omaha to move our daughter to an apartment. Julie was a delightful hostess who was attentive and gracious in every way. Our room, the Castle Room, was comfortable and clean. Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay another night.

My wife and I shared our 14th anniversary at the ONLY BNB in Omaha - The Cornerstone Mansion. We stayed in the Porch Suite. For anyone looking for a romantic weekend getaway locally, or who wants charm while on travel - STAY AT THIS BNB!!! We have been to dozens across the entire country, some better than others, but we... More

I booked the room in advance for my husbands and my 29th anniversary. Our room was the Fireside, when we arrived it was so hot I inquired with the owner who said this room is the warmest and the heating was central but she would turn it down as the other guest rooms had portable heaters and she also told...

jkm0708, Owner at Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

In a 120-year-old house during a very cold winter, we keep our thermostat at a temperature that seems to suit the majority of our guests, and we offer fans or portable heaters to those who are not comfortable. None of our windows are nailed or painted shut. Our bigger concern with this review is that the guest says she could... More

We enjoyed one night here in our travels. Our hostess was very gracious and welcoming as were the two dogs (who were allowed no further than the kitchen). We appreciated the suggestion of finding supper in the Old Market area (as well as the good directions to get there!). The wind was terrible the night we stayed, yet we were... More

My jaw dropped when I got out of the car - what a beautiful, stately home - and I have plans to stay every time I'm in Omaha on business. Julie my host obviously loves this place, and it shows. The surroundings are outstanding: my bedroom window looked out onto Jocelyn Castle, and the brick-paved streets around lent an air... More
