This Hidden Resort In Nebraska Is The Perfect Place To Get Away From It All
Escaping reality isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, we all need to shut out the real world every once in a while and just let relaxation happen. In Nebraska, we’ve got so many great places to unplug, unwind, and forget that the day-to-day hassle exists. Double R Guest Ranch, near Mullen in Hooker County, is an amazing place in the Sandhills that will relax you while ensuring you’re never bored.
As the name implies, Double R Guest Ranch is a working ranch. You can choose your own adventure here: ranch hand excursion, hunting/fishing getaway, or total seclusion/peaceful trip. Or you can combine them and decide exactly how to spend your vacation.
The ranch is tucked away in the rolling Sandhills.
The location is secluded enough that traffic is not a concern at all.
You have your choice between staying the big cabin with a deck that sleeps up to six adults...
The small cabin which sleeps up to four adults...
Or the lakeside cabin which can accommodate up to nine adults.
The cabins have varying numbers bedrooms, and each has its own distinct layout.
But all cabins come equipped with kitchenettes (fully stocked with flatware, silverware, and cookware), comfy furniture, linens, appliances, air conditioning, and satellite TV.
The cabins provide the perfect home base for whatever adventures you have while at the Double R.
You might even find yourself bonding with your family or friends as you all enjoy the cozy sleeping quarters.
Although you'll find many of the comforts of home here, The Double R Guest Ranch enables a whole slew of opportunities to get out of the cabin and do something.
Here, the property's historic sod house sits, looking inviting.
The original house has been preserved with a coating of concrete, and the interior contains objects that the house's original occupants may have owned and used. The ranch also contains a restored historic one-room schoolhouse, complete with original textbooks and a working piano. These historical attractions are perfect for a relaxing afternoon spent wandering the ranch grounds.
There's even a little teepee next to the small cabin. It's just the right size for kids to play in.
But other than the historical attractions, Double R has a whole lot to offer a vacationer. Just walking around in this gorgeous setting is so peaceful and centering.
You will also find activities like horseshoes, hiking trails, horseback riding, trapshooting, croquet, a basketball hoop, badminton, and canoeing or kayaking. No matter how you choose to relax, the ranch can accommodate you.
If you choose, you can participate in ranch adventures that include everything from checking fences to branding cattle.
This type of manual labor is exactly what some people need to unwind and feel more grounded.
Many people come here for the spectacular hunting and fishing. The Double R Ranch is the perfect hunting location for deer and some types of birds. Hunting onsite is only available to ranch guests.
The onsite spring-fed lake is a fantastic fishing spot. You can bring your own boat or use the ranch's fishing boat. Ice fishing is allowed here, so you can catch your own dinner no matter what time of year you visit.
But above all else, this is the type of place in which you can truly relax and leave everything else behind. The spectacular Sandhills setting inspires calm and a connection with nature that many of us are missing from our everyday lives.
