I still love to drive by there ever chance that I get. The structure is surely that of what can be found over in Germany. It was beautiful inside, and the history of the things are fantantisc.

We were definitely disappointed in the experience here. First of all, you MUST have cash. In this day and age who would have thought any place was cash ONLY?! Second, the property is not well maintained. There is virtually no furniture in the house. The rooms are not restored well if at all. The top floor is a giant empty space with a modern feel and carpet. I agree with the other reviewer that called it tacky. Save a couple bucks and head up to Council Bluffs to the Dodge House.

My husband and I would have loved to go in. We did drive around the grounds and it looked beautiful. I didn't realize until we had driven out to Omaha that they are open very limited hours unless you can make an appointment for a large group. It would be an ideal place for a wedding or party!!

Went here for an outdoor wedding. It was really nice to see. We were able to tour the place after the wedding and see all the rooms
