Experience Real Ranch Living On This Spectacular Guest Ranch In Nebraska
If it has always been your dream to experience the rustic, busy life on a cattle ranch, there’s a place in southeastern Nebraska you’ve just got to visit. And if your idea of a country getaway involves lounging in a marvelous natural setting and just doing nothing for a while, this place is perfect for you, too.
Big Blue Ranch in Burchard, Nebraska is the perfect place to take the family for a rural getaway. The working ranch lets you choose your own adventure, whether it's riding the range, watching a cattle drive, exploring the countryside, or just relaxing and enjoying the peaceful surroundings.
You'll likely see a different aspect of ranch life every time you visit. Whether it's calving, branding, or driving, this getaway provides plenty of opportunities to learn all about the inner workings of rural ranch life.
Nature is the main source of entertainment here. You won't find any TVs, there's no internet access, and there's a good chance that your phone won't get any reception while you're at the ranch. It's the perfect opportunity to go explore the outdoors without any distractions.
Plenty of visitors come here to shoot photos of the gorgeous natural surroundings. In the spring when the prairie chickens do their booming, stomping dance, take cover in one of the ranch's blinds to watch the show. After the sun goes down, the extra-dark skies provide a lovely celestial show for stargazers.
If you're more into sporting, you'll be happy to know that the fishing and hunting out here are fantastic. Make this your home base for your next fishing or hunting trip - it's bound to be one of the most memorable adventures ever.
The 20-acre lake is one of the highlights of this destination. Grab a kayak and go for a relaxing paddle...
Or jump in for a swim. This is the ultimate rural swimming and fishing hole.
The lodge you'll be staying in is a treat in and of itself. It's located right on the lake so you're just steps away from a fun swim or a peaceful day of fishing.
Although the setting is rural, the lodge is beautifully appointed with modern amenities.
There are two suites in the lodge, each with its own kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. If you're staying with a large party, you can always open up the doors in the great rooms to join the two suites.
You're practically guaranteed a good night's sleep in the comfortable beds.
The large covered porch is an excellent place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning or enjoy conversations with your traveling companions. Bring a book and bask in the silence for a while.
The views over the lake are nothing short of splendid any time of the day, but sunsets are particularly impressive.
Address: 70901 609 Avenue, Burchard, NE 68323
