Staying At This Stunning Nebraska Bed And Breakfast Will Make You Feel Like Royalty
Most of us can agree that sweet rural B&Bs are far superior to the big chain hotels. Independently owned bed and breakfasts have the kind of personality that the homogenous hotel chains can never match. There’s one B&B in Seward that exudes charm and class, and staying there will make you feel like you’re in your own personal fairytale.
La Ruche Bed and Breakfast in Seward was built in 1904. The historic Queen Anne Style home is large but cozy, with just four guest rooms. You'll never feel lost in the crowd here.
The original owners were Walter & Bessie Turner Cattle, which is where the home got its original name, The Cattle House.
You'll be impressed by the common areas as soon as you walk in. The furnishings are classy but not fussy.
It looks like a home that you could definitely live in. The rich woodwork is so luxurious that you'll feel like you're in a fancy English manor home.
Everything has been carefully and lovingly restored to its original grandeur.
If you feel like spending time with the other guests, there are some lovely place to sit and relax - and even play bumper pool if you're so inclined.
Or spend some quiet time in a comfy chair with a book. This collection is a dream come true for a bibliophile.
When it's time to turn in for the night, you'll be greeted by one of the exceptionally beautiful and comfortable guest rooms.
While the rooms have been restored to their original configurations and retain their vintage charm, they've also been modernized.
The furnishings are a delightful combination of antique and modern. The linens are so luxurious that you may not want to get out of bed in the morning.
Each of the four rooms has its own bathroom, each of which is outfitted with modern conveniences.
It makes for an interesting and comfortable blend of old and new.
And let's not forget about the second "B" in B&B. Come down in the morning for a delicious, home-cooked breakfast.
You'll be treated to a delightful two-course meal lovingly prepared by the innkeeper herself, Bonnie Etzold.
Linger for a while over coffee and visit with Bonnie and the other guests. Breakfast is a social event at La Ruche.
When the weather is nice, have a seat on the kissing porch and watch the quiet surroundings while you enjoy some quiet conversation.
This is one truly beautiful place to spend a night, a weekend, or even longer. Find La Ruche Bed & Breakfast at 1027 N 2nd Street in Seward. For prices, reservations, and more information about this stunning home, check out La Ruche’s
