This was our first B & B stay (rec'd a gift certificate). It was indeed great. A really nice stately old home, very well maintained and restored. Gordon and his wife are wonderful hosts, and very interesting to spend time with. They have an abundance of local history stored in this home and in their memories. Our room was nice,... More

We only visited for one night, on a long trip from NM to Upstate NY but we would have loved to stay longer. Perfectly restored with period furnishings, this B&B offered the best of both worlds, historic charm yet with modern amenities. Love porches and there were two to enjoy, one with access from our 2nd floor room. Our hosts,... More

What a wonderful time we had in this beautiful, interesting and charming bed and breakfast. We were even invited to join our hosts for wine and homemade brownies on the porch with their friends one evening. Coming from Scotland, this was a truly American delight. The breakfasts were out of this world. Our visit was fantastic from start to finish.

If you think big cities, Hollywood, politics, and the never-ending negative news stories are what America is all about, then you are horribly mistaken. Turn the TV off and come to Bennington. America is about it's beauty, it's friendly people and places like the Oft's B and B in Bennington, Nebraska. Gordon and Linda, the proprietors, have taken their home,... More

Staying with Linda and Gordon at Oft's Bed & Breakfast was as cozy as a favorite pair of jeans.

We were in Omaha to attend the celebrations for my husband's retirement from Northern Natural Gas Co. Staying with Gordon and Linda made the experience even that much more special and memorable. The breakfasts were delicious, the conversations fun-filled and informative, and experiencing their beautiful family home was like staying with family or long-time friends. We hope to return again...

Gordon carried our luggage and gave us a wonderful tour. We did not meet Linda until our wonderful breakfast. Their historic home is comfortable with modern bathrooms. The sheets are great! Pure relaxation from the moment we arrived until we left in the morning.
