National Historic Place
Aug 2019
The Governor's residence is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is within walking distance of the capital. We did not have access to the residence but were able to see through the iron fence.

The tour of the Governor's Mansion was a delight. The staff were quite friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. If you ever get a chance to go there I would recommend it!

It's always interesting to see where the governor lives. Right across the street from the capitol which shouldn't be missed on a trip to lincoln.

Nothing Special Anymore
Aug 2017 • Couples
Yes, this was once the Governor's Mansion. But compared to home being built today in exclusive neighborhoods, this Mansion is well past it's time. I'm not really sure if it gets used much or if its just a icon of the State. Its was fun to tour and there is plenty of history here, The staff was very nice and the place is kept nice. I don't think kids today would really appreciate visiting, but adults still might like it. Located near the Capitol so you can visit both at the same time.

Disappointing trip
Nov 2017 • Family
Having read other Tripadvisor reviews, we decided to visit this place. After the State Capitol, we visited this at 2 pm on a Saturday, only to find it closed for the day. We were disappointed, as it looked quite nice. Funnily, there were no timing mentioned on their website, which we checked before visiting.

Right across the street from the capital, the mansion is well maintained. Behind a high fence and guarded, as it should be, the mansion is beautiful to look at.

Outstanding Example of Early Ramada-Style Architecture.
Oct 2016 • Couples
This structure was no doubt converted from a National Mid-Priced Hotel Chain of indeterminate origin, possibly Ramada, but could be some other. I am not an expert on this. Service is sketchy, as occupants have seriously mismanaged health care, corrections, tourism and other responsibilities under their domain. One can only hope that their residency here is a short-lived one, but that may be unlikely, as the landlords have a history of placing incompetent partisans here for some time now. We'll see.

Governor's Kay Orr and Ben Nelson time in office
Dec 2015
I was able to visit the governor's mansion during that time due to a family connection to the Governor's Mansion. It is a interesting place to visit and a fair amount of history of past Governor's and their spouses. There is a cook book by Governor's Orr spouse that I own and have used some of the recipes.

It is advertised but it was locked up tighter than a drum the day we were there and it looked like it had been for a while. Disappointed.
