There’s No Better Place To Be Than This Unique Farm In Nebraska
Contrary to what some people in other states believe, Nebraskans aren’t all fortunate enough to live on farms. But when we need to get away and connect with our agrarian roots, there’s a unique little place in Sarpy County to escape to.
This tiny house is located on a goat farm in Gretna.
It's a shining example of the tiny house movement: an itty-bitty rustic but modern haven.
The interior is cozy, but not cramped.
...For the right number of people, that is. The tiny house can accommodate up to three guests.
Despite its diminutive size, the tiny house has everything you need for a relaxing stay in this semi-rural setting.
It's clean, beautifully decorated, and has its own shower in the warmer non-winter months.
The loft bedroom is an especially notable feature.
The queen bed (which previous renters say is the most comfortable bed ever) is accessible only via a ladder...
...Which gives the sleeping area a sort of sense of whimsy.
Of course, if you aren't up for the climb, there is also a pull-out bed in the living room.
But the best part of staying in this tiny house might actually be where it's located.
When you rent this little home, you'll be staying at Willow Valley Farms, a very special goat farm.
The farm is home to a herd of 200 San Clemente Island goats, a critically endangered species.
These sweet little goats are smaller and more nimble than the type you might be used to seeing.
The farm's owners are doing their part to preserve this heritage species.
Only around 450 of these unique goats are alive today, 200 of which are right here on this Nebraska farm. (You can watch them wander the grounds when you visit, but booking a tiny house stay doesn't guarantee face time or chore time with the farmers.)
The goats share the farm with chickens and ducks, which you can also visit when you stay in the tiny house.
Eventually, the owners hope to produce goat cheese on the farm, adding another layer of interest to this already-fascinating little place.
